The new-look Silky Oaks Lodge is set to reopen in December 2021 and will include a revitalised guest experience that will align it with the existing Baillie Lodges properties. Local builders and tradespeople will contribute to the refurbishment, while Indigenous artworks, as well as custom furnishings by Australian designers will evoke a real sense of the region. The new ultra-premium Daintree Pavilion will deliver a new level of luxury rainforest retreat with floor-to-ceiling glass and skillion ceilings welcoming in the sights and sounds of the rainforest.
