Rainforest Huts

The Rainforest Huts feature a minimalist design that maximises the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest.

Elegant and yet rustic at the same time. Accessed by a boardwalk to protect the forest floor, the rainforest huts are designed to be like a bubble in the rainforest. The walls can be opened on three sides by sliding timber and glass panels giving a beautiful close rainforest experience.

Each hut has a small veranda, simple furnishings and sleeps two in either king or twin occupancy with alfresco-ensuite, looking out to the rainforest.

Deluxe Canopy Cabins

For those few extra comforts, we also have our Deluxe Canopy Cabins. They are of solid wood construction, with ample, screened glass windows, while still offering a close connection to the sights and sounds of the forest.

Larger than the rainforest huts, these cabins are stylishly appointed with polished wooden floors, handmade natural timber furniture and spectacular glass-walled bathrooms looking out high in the trees.

With a studio-style lounge and bedroom and a private, furnished veranda, the canopy cabins offer superior accommodation in an entirely natural environment.

Deluxe Rainforest Apartments

We have two beautifully appointed rainforest apartments at Sanctuary.

These freshly renovated apartments have an open plan layout opening into the lush rainforest. These apartments are fitted with a kitchenette, with small energy efficient fridge, induction cooktop, and modern
kitchen appliances.

As soon as you open the doors you are greeted by warm timber floors, beautiful furnishings inspired by nature and an expansive lounge area that looks out into the forest. The bathroom is situated on the large undercover wrap around verandah, featuring a beautiful atrium shower and contemporary fittings.
