Celebrities including Jane Fonda, Brooke Shields, and Paul Simon have unwound near-incognito at this intimate eco-lodge, on the fringe of the world's oldest rain forest. Owners Cathy and Terry Malone make sure their guests connect with the environment; many of their staff members are from Aboriginal groups indigenous to the region, and the property's 15 tree-house lodgings are set among trees and connected by elevated boardwalks. Each is outfitted with handcrafted wood furnishings, a king-size canopy bed, satellite TV, and personal touches such as traditional handmade "dilly bags" (woven from pounded tree bark); the five Spa Villas have balcony spa tubs. Guests can dine on a deck beneath a tangled canopy of trees, on dishes incorporating berries and herbs harvested from the surrounding forest. The spa provides girls-only treatments at a nearby waterfall, considered a powerful women's healing spot by the local Kuku Yalangi people. Guests not content to soak up spa therapies and pure forest air can sign up for bush walks, wildlife-spotting, indigenous art workshops, and river cruises.
