About Us

THE ISLAND: Makepeace is a private island a few minutes from Noosa Heads, owned by Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Australia co founder Brett Godfrey and Radek Sali, ex CEO of Swisse Wellness. This 25 acre heart shaped Island has been created to luxuriously accommodate and entertain up to 22 guests exclusively but with all the attractions that Australia’s Sunshine Coast has to offer a boat ride away. Makepeace offers privacy, tranquillity and barefoot luxury set amongst stunning Australian wilderness. Guests will enjoy the beautiful wildlife including our resident kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas.

RETREAT: Large island style open plan entertaining areas overlook the pool and river including The Long Room ‘Island Bar’ and 2 storey raised Wantilan complete with lounges, silk furnishing and antiques.

RELAX: Swimming in the lagoon pool or relaxing in the 15 person hot tub with a glass of bubbles, circumnavigating the island in a kayak or on a paddle board, exploring the island’s Australian flora and fauna (kangaroos, kookaburras, echidnas) on nature walks or experiencing the ultimate in unique sunset lake cruises or to the Everglades close by. Venturing further a field explore the Sunshine Coast with a gourmet picnic at a secluded oasis, horse-riding at Rainbow Beach, 4WD beach tour, golfing trip, swimming with the whales (in-season), fishing or surfing... we have it all.

EAT: Executive Chef will create culinary experiences in collaboration with guests that will become a high point of their stay. Dining locations include the Wantilan Balcony, Long Room and Island Bar, poolside or on your personal villa balcony. A gourmet picnic at a secluded oasis on the northern beaches is a must and our Master Classes are a must.

Best of the Best

The adventurer can go fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, or kayaking around the heart-shaped island; ask about the array of bespoke activities. The bedrooms – individually adorned with Indonesian furnishings and artwork – are dispersed throughout the Island House and three private two-bedroom villas.
