Daintree Ecolodge

Set in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest, the Daintree Ecolodge combines nature, nurture and culture in a pure rainforest environment. Believed to be over 180 million years old, and the oldest tropical lowland rainforest on Earth, the Daintree Rainforest is a rare and precious botanical treasure.

Nestled amongst the foliage, the Daintree Ecolodge showcases 15 eco-friendly bayans (treehouses) immersed in the breathtaking rainforest canopy. Rise to the sound of the birds in the rainforest above, breathe-in the fresh tropical air and discover the lodge's private onsite waterfall on a leisurely stroll through the enchanting rainforest.

The Daintree Ecolodge provides the perfect base to explore the treasures of the Daintree region; the only place in the world where two UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites meet (the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef)! The Daintree Ecolodge is located 110 kilometers north of Cairns (90 minutes) and 45 kilometers north of Port Douglas (40 minutes) via sealed roads.

Room Information

The Daintree is a truly unique location and all of the bayans (treehouses) are nestled amongst the canopy of the world’s oldest living rainforest.

Each of the eco-luxury bayans embrace the rainforest surrounds with an open plan setting and micro-screened balconies to ensure you feel as close to nature as possible whilst still being able to enjoy your creature comforts.

All stays at Daintree Ecolodge include a gourmet á la carte breakfast prepared by their team of highly skilled chefs using seasonal produce sourced from the onsite vegetable garden and the surrounding region of Daintree Port Douglas.

No TV or Wi-Fi in the bayans ensures you’ll see and hear the sounds of nature, creating an unforgettable rainforest encounter.

Lagoon Bayan
Nestled high in the rainforest canopy and overlooking the onsite lily pad-strewn lagoon and Julaymba Restaurant, the Lagoon Bayans are ideal for guests wishing to explore and discover the beauty and diversity of the region by day. Relax amongst the muted colors and natural tones whilst enjoying the soft, dappled sunlight that shines through the private screened balcony.

Canopy Bayan
As the name suggests, the Canopy Bayans are situated high in the lush fronds of the Daintree Rainforest offering uninterrupted views of the world’s oldest tropical rainforest. This treehouse-style accommodation features a spacious bedroom and a screened balcony with daybed – perfect for lazy days reading or just listening to the sounds that surround you. Access via stairs.

Rainforest Bayan
The Rainforest Bayans are set closer to the rainforest floor amidst the ancient emerald vines and offer an ideal retreat for those seeking solitude or a romantic escape. Featuring a freestanding black bathtub on a private enclosed balcony overlooking the kaleidoscope of unique flora and fauna, the Rainforest Bayans allow guests to surrender to the soothing rainforest and sounds of the jungle with luxe creature comforts.
