Welcome to the only boutique hotel in the oldest rainforest in the world. We chose Daintree Eco-lodge because of both it’s location in middle of this incredible rainforest and it’s proximity to The Great Barrier Reef. Unless you live nearby, this is a giant trip for you and we wanted to create an experience that gave you as much impact, nature, one of a kind experience, delicious food and amazing yoga as we possibly could. This is the trip we’ve been dreaming of for years and you are wholeheartedly invited to this incredible yoga retreat in Australia!
Welcome to the oldest rainforest in the world. What does that mean? That means the lush tropical jungle you’ve been dreaming of. Deep green fauna not found anywhere else and a river teaming with wildlife. It means traveling to the far side of the world to feel an unrivaled sense of home. It means fresh air and nourishment to the soul. It means spending a week with a beautiful community who is there to bathe in the same juicy travel as you.
Start your day with a delicious yoga class, followed by breakfast and then a morning of exploring or relaxing in the jungle. A delicious lunch followed by an afternoon of napping, hiking, reading, or an excursion to the Great Barrier Reef or a local village. Then close your beautiful day with a sweet early evening practice and a delicious dinner with new and old friends at the rainforest restaurant.
Daintree is home to an astonishing 430 species of birds, 13 of which are found nowhere else on the planet. This spectacular rainforest features some of the biggest tropical trees on the planet, including the ancient Bull Kauri trees. In fact, the tallest tree reaches a whopping 44.2 metres –around the same height as the famous Statue of Liberty.

We pride ourselves on offering you breathtaking cuisine, cooked by our passionate chefs who delights in putting together tantalizing meals with a personal touch.

Travel: The retreat is located about 90 minutes from Cairns Airport so we highly suggest booking a flight that departs a day early and arrives by 1pm on the 16th (there are a number of flights that arrive between 11:00am – 1pm). One group airport shuttle from Cairns is provided at about 1 pm. The exact pick up time is subject to adjustment and we will provide details as the retreat after we receive all guest travel details before the retreat. You may need to fly out as early as the morning of Sep 14th in order to arrive by 1pm Sep 16th in Australia time – please pay close attention when you book your flights to make sure you arriving on the right day.
If you have to arrive on one of the later flights, we understand and can help coordinate a taxi for you (not included). You will most likely arrive just in time for dinner as most later flights arrive around 4-5pm. If you can’t seem to book a flight that gets in at a reasonable time on the 16th we think it’s probably a sign that you should come a day or more early!
Please book a flight that departs after 12pm on the 22nd if you’re leaving that day to allow a bit of time to soak up the last morning and not rush out too much earlier. One group airport shuttle is included to Cairns airport to arrive around 9:30/10 am in time for the 12pm flights. The exact time is subject to adjustment to fit the group’s needs.
If this shuttle time does not work for you, we can help set up a taxi for you (not included) and will try to pair you up with other guests. If possible, we may be able to drop you off at a beach town on the way to the airport so you can spend time on the coast before you go to the airport. You can also stay longer in the area on Sep 22nd and fly out at a later date.

Sustainability is not just a word that we toss around for brownie points with our guests. It is a concept that is at the core of who we are as a business. Sustainability can mean different things to different people; our interpretation of a sustainable business is one that generates a sustainable profit while benefiting the community and the environment. This includes actively managing environmental, social and economic risks by mitigating negative impacts from our operations. There are some serious environmental and social issues facing our planet today and looming on the horizon. We want to ensure that our business is not contributing to these issues and that we are positively contributing to our local environment and community. We approach sustainability under the pillars of environment, community and workplace.
