Such a great two nights in the Edge house celebrating my birthday. Large house with huge deck overlooking the trees. Could see all the way to the coast! Friendly wildlife too who we shared dinner and breakfast with. Would highly recommend especially for a group but also as a quiet family getaway. Will definitely be back.

The accomodation was exactly as described & pictured via their website. We escaped for a winter getaway for 2 nights. So, so glad we chose the Escarpment. Quiet, romantic and extremely relaxing. This place isn't the cheapest, but you certainly get what you pay for. I won't go into too much detail as I won't want give anything away. The...

Was in a cabin functional and a bit dated. It was the chatter of the mothers dropping off children next to us and the traffic of the roundabout that made the place not very good for a couple. Breakfast arranged around staff rot as so bring food with you as no restaurant.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback about your stay last July. I am saddened to read your time in the villa was not the experience you had hoped for, as many of our guests thoroughly enjoy their stay with us. Breakfast at 8.30am to 9.30am usually suits early and late risers. For health...

Magical environment- beautifully laid out and relaxing - perfect for a weekend stay with a loved one. Popped next door to St bernards for lunch and went to the markets on Sunday. Fireplace was wonderful and cozy with a huge spa for two.

Perfect getaway for couples. Amazingly located on the mountain. Right next door to the St Bernard Hotel. Beautiful views of the valley from the Lovers View. Rooms are definition of luxury. Feel like a queen sleeping in the massive four poster bed. Relaxing day spa. All the staff at the retreat are all so lovely and make you feel very...

We loved our stay at The Escarpment. So relaxed, away from people and noise in our rainforest oasis. The massive bath looking out into the rainforest, sipping champagne was lush. We will be back for another weekend away.

We went to the Escarpment Day Spa as part of a girls weekend up to Mt Tambourine, although we stayed elsewhere as they were booked out. We had the Time Out treatment and it was well worth the money. Exactly the right balance of remedial and relaxing for the massage. Hot stones while my feet were attended to. A head...

The whole experience of the Escarpment was pure bliss. It really is a retreat away from the everyday busyness. Everything was taken care of for us. I have never experienced such a beautiful massage & facial before. Hot towels, gentle music, magic healing hands.

We spent 3 nights at the Escarpment Retreat and were very happy with the resort, perfect for couples wanting privacy in a beautiful place. The rooms were large and very well maintained, you can build your own fire in your room which my husband loved. The meals to the room were really nice, we also had the massage package which...
