Nestled beneath the canopy of the Daintree Rainforest, the oldest continuously surviving tropical rainforest on Earth, sits a boutique tropical retreat boasting 15 eco-friendly bayans set in spectacular surroundings. The only boutique accommodation in the World-Heritage listed rainforest, a stay at the Daintree Eco Lodge is a unique and irreplicable experience. It’s not what you might expect from a rainforest lodging either. Tents are swapped for luxurious private villas suspended in the tree-tops, rations are swapped for gourmet dining options and infested rivers are swapped for the pure waters of the revitalising Wellness Spa.
If you’re anything like me, right about now you’re probably thinking “What about the mozzies?”. Mosquito nets don’t appear in any of the rooms, surprising at first until you notice the screens on the exterior of every window. This means you can leave the windows open all night and fall asleep to the sounds of the forest without worrying about any unwanted visitors. Located just 90 minutes North of Cairns in tropical North Queensland, the Daintree Eco Lodge embraces all of the appealing features of a rainforest setting and offers a luxurious accommodation experience that transcends all expectations. For a night worth remembering, for all of the right reasons, the Daintree Eco Lodge has you covered. Scroll down for a visual insight into my stay at the Daintree Eco Lodge.
