Make Love, not War on Makepeace Island!

If you had to dream up the most romantic holiday ever, it would be hard to beat Makepeace Island; Richard Branson's heart-shaped island surrounded by real-life teddy bears!

But where does such a tropical paradise exist? Upstream from world-renowned Noosa Heads on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast lies the Virgin boss' Australian home. Originally a retreat for his family and friends, this Balinese-styled retreat offers an idyllic place to escape and unwind.

If You go Down to the Woods Today…

Aside from living like a billionaire, the absolute best thing (we think) about Makepeace Island are the koalas - they might not be having a teddy bears' picnic, but Sir Richard oversees a koala conservancy, in other words, a real life teddy bear sanctuary!

Makepeace Island is a sanctuary of seclusion which accommodates up to 20 castaways… and now you and your loved one could have exclusive and sole use of the island and be welcomed, loved, pampered and rejuvenated in a haven of utter peace, tranquillity and serenity.

Okay, back to the retreat! Just as you’d expect from a billionaire playboy philanthropist (not, not tony Stark!) your private island escape is a genuine sanctuary of seclusion to get away from all that number-crunching!

Makepeace Island swimming pool and loungers

The island features three villas, and each have 2 spacious bedrooms, opulent bathrooms, separate lounge areas, panoramic verandahs and waterfalls. Environmentally sustainable, the island is keeping with the coastal wilderness, yet on the doorstep of all the attractions of the Sunshine Coast.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner from an Executive Chef, featuring organic produce, from their own local chickens and beehives. Plus there’s an island bar for sipping cocktails next to the lagoon pool, an Indonesian relaxation wantilan for afternoon naps and an outdoor cinema.

Makepeace Island dining on the beach

Activities include tennis, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, sunset lake cruise and Masterchef culinary classes and wine tastings.
