Lonely Planet review
To reach this grand inn, you must drive 4 miles past acres of macadamia orchards to 850ft above sea level. Your reward? A fantastically verdant setting, complete with 120ft waterfall and swimming hole. Eight rooms (in two buildings) are exquisitely appointed with Asian antiques. The pagoda guesthouse is a worthy splurge and includes a kitchen, laundry facilities and 1.5 bathrooms. All power is hydroelectric and off the grid. The unlit 4-mile road can be tricky at night. See website for driving instructions.
