Spicers Tamarind Retreat, nestled in the green hills and rainforest of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, has become one of the region’s culinary gems under the 12-year tenure of executive chef Dan Jarrett.

Jarrett is born and raised on the Sunshine Coast where he lives with his young family, and has been delighting foodies in South East Queensland for many years. French-trained but leading an Asian fusion culinary experience, Dan has been influenced by travel in China and Malaysia, and has an affinity for the diverse cuisines of Asia – vibrant, colourful and enthralling – that embrace the verdant sub-tropical environment.

Spicers Tamarind Retreat and award-winning The Tamarind Restaurant are situated near the town of Maleny on a picturesque 18-acre property next to Gardner’s Falls. It offers intimate, rainforest-fringed luxury infused with the seductive spices of Asia, giving friends, family and foodies every reason to book in for a trip to culinary paradise, truly in tune with its location.
