Spicers Tamarind Retreat

88 Obi Lane South, Maleny QLD

Uniquely situated next to Gardners Falls in the stunning hinterland region of the Sunshine Coast, the retreat offers a luxury rainforest fringed, Asian-influenced haven that spirits you away to another world. Intimate, secluded and romantic, each of the 14 villas offer stand-alone luxury in a tropical setting, creating the perfect private space.

Villas offer a choice of 1 or 2 bedrooms and feature luxury amenities, open wood burning fireplaces, verandahs with outdoor setting, heated towel racks and complimentary WiFi.

Explore the natural wonders of the retreat with a leisurely stroll through the rainforest, join the expert chefs on a journey of discovery into the flavours, aromas and spices of Thai cuisine at the Tamarind Cooking School, relax your body and mind at the destination day spa, Spa Anise or enjoy the many natural wonders the Sunshine Coast has to offer. DVDs and board games are available at reception.

A huge range of activities are onsite or can be booked with reception including yoga, self-guided rainforest and bush walks, horse riding, local tours, scenic flights and a Cocktail Master Class.

With a team led by Head Chef Dan Jarrett, The Tamarind has earned an enviable reputation on the Sunshine Coast for Asian cuisine. Awarded one Chef Hat in the 2020 National Good Food Guide, the menu effortlessly combines sweet, sour and spicy flavours with fresh local produce – the perfect meeting of traditional and new. The restaurant has achieved a Chef-Hat in the Australian Good Food Guide for 2019 and the best breakfast restaurant in Australia in the 2019 Savour Awards.
