The rainforest is only fingertip-distance away at this retreat-come-cooking school

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Take more than just memories and happy-snaps away with you after a stay at this rainforest-flanked retreat in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Don’t worry, you’ll leave with those too, however you will also be taking home of just-learned cooking skills and a set Thai cookery recipes courtesy of the retreat’s onsite cooking school.

Your lodgings for your time at Amytis Gardens Retreat is one of four cabins. These mountain chalet-style pads all come with deep sunken spa baths, wide balconies, king beds and wood-burning fireplaces. A handful of comforts, such as a kitchenette, bathrobes, free WiFi and TV, come as standard. Each of the chalets sleeps two. This makes the retreat perfect for couples wanting a romantic weekend, or for groups of travelling couples that want to be in close proximity to one another without being packed into the one accommodation like sardines in a tin.

The Gardens Retreat is also home to a forest-fringed swimming pool and a serene day spa that offers holistic treatments including all-day pamper packages, massages and beauty therapies.

So what will your time at Amytis Gardens Retreat look like? You might wake early, slowly coming out of your deep sleep to the sound of birds singing just beyond your window. Or, you could choose to stay in bed all morning and use the breakfast supplies (available with some accommodation packages) as a makeshift brunch. Read a book on your balcony or by the swimming pool, or pull on an apron for a four-hour course at Amytis Cooking School. The monthly classes take influence from Thai cuisine and are led by a seasoned chef.
