Accommodation Eco rainforest Huts A minimalist design maximises the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest whilst giving some personal space to those creatures you may prefer not to sleep with. Accessed by a boardwalk to protect the forest floor, the rainforest huts have no solid walls, instead the timber structure is screened on all four sides with weather proof curtains able to be drawn for privacy and protection from adverse weather. Each hut has a small veranda, simple furnishings and sleeps two in either double or twin occupancy. Bathroom for this style of accommodation are in the Main building. The Next style is a Rainforest hut with attached outdoor Funky En-suite bathrooms.
Deluxe Cabins Of solid wooden construction, with ample, screened glass windows, the canopy cabins offer maximum protection from the elements, while still offering a close connection to the sights and sounds of the forest. Larger than the rainforest huts, these cabins are stylishly appointed with polished wooden floors, handmade natural timber furniture and spectacular glass-walled bathrooms looking out high in the trees. With a studio-style lounge and bedroom and a private, furnished veranda, the canopy cabins offer superior accommodation in an entirely natural environment.
