Spicers Tamarind Retreat

Vendor sincce 2015


Spicers Retreats started with the idea of sharing a little known area of Queensland’s spectacular high country, thinking if New Zealand can have great lodges why can’t we?

Beginning with Spicers Peak Lodge in the mountains of the Great Dividing Range, guests can now choose from seven very individual retreats covering southeast Queensland and the Hunter Valley in New South Wales.

We genuinely believe that while people come for the luxury what they really gain is the rejuvenation that comes with getting in touch with the natural surroundings.

We call it ‘relaxed luxury’, a feeling of being totally at home and free to be yourself. It’s not solely about a comfortable bed, quality furnishings, personalised service and great food, it’s just as much about the feeling of being renewed and reinvigorated by the land itself.

We think what we have achieved is a true blend of luxury and an authentic Australian style of hospitality. There’s nothing better for us than to be at one of our retreats and see it being used the way we imagined, so please take some time to enjoy the unique, inspiring spaces we’ve created.

18 July 2017 • Italian - Long Course Cooking Classes

On arrival it was disappointing to hear that our Italian cooking class (a 50th birthday gift and an opportunity to learn how to put our pasta maker to better use) that another chef had been called in overnight to instead provide a Thai cooking class. Without prior warning to class participants (the reminder email the day before still pointed to an Italian cooking class), and no further explanation when we arrived, I'd suggest not a very nice position to put their chef in. We'd also travelled and paid for two nights accommodation (elsewhere), to be able to attend the class. Whilst a full refund was offered on the cooking class (and accepted) the experience seems noteworthy. Based on our experience I'd say if you are happy for a change in cuisine from the one you originally booked then this might be the cooking school for you. If however you'd like to learn to cook a particular cuisine then there might be other schools around that are more reliable.

Our group of 7 ladies had such a wonderful time. Phil our instructor was lovely and knowledgeable. The flavours we produced were just amazing. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a fun day
