If anyone out there is considering a holiday on Makepeace Island. Do not hesitate !!! I recently stayed there for 5 nights and every moment was simply fabulous.

Wow words cannot describe my experience on the island. I was there for only a short stay joining some friends that had been there longer. The staff, location and amenities where second to none. I would have to say that this is the best resort I have experienced.

I am not sure I can find the words to explain how much we enjoyed our weekend on Makepeace. The name of the Island does say it all, I have never felt as at peace with myself and surrounding as I did on the weekend, so Makepeace is exactly what you feel. The amazing care and service your team provided... More

From the first moment that our large group (22 people) of friends and their kids (aged 9 months to 4 years) descended on Makepeace Island, Nick and his crew impressed us with their food and service. Without doubt the highlight for us was the afternoon trip down the river to a beautiful, expansive bay on their enormous barge. Watching the... More

If you were looking for Paradise, Paradise found!!! I have never used one of these services to review resorts/restaurants, but felt the need after experiencing what my family and I just experienced. After traveling around the world through the Maldives, Europe and throughout Asia - I have never seen an island as luxurious, that caters to your every whim and... More

Well here is your chance. Rent Richard Branson's Noosa getaway and have the entire island to yourself and your guests. We did just that and spent three perfect days being totally indulgent and indulged. Where do I begin, its like visiting an old friend, all the luxuries are there, private villas, magnificent pool, tennis court, catamarans, kayaks,but it is the... More

Everything you could want for a special holiday or experience. It goes with out saying this is a special setting but the more special experience is the service provided by the staff. All lovely people very attentive to your every need but never in any way intrusive. Nick the manager can be congratulated not only for his own special service... More

I was trying to find somewhere I could take most of my family and a few closest friends which included 7 babies (between 18 months and 5 years). So I needed a villa or similar, with lots of ability to tailor their offerings to the group (3 meals for the parents, 3 feeding times for the babies). I wanted somewhere... More

We chose Makepeace Island as the destination for our elopement and were not disappointed. The wedding service was lovely and relaxed and the island proved perfect for our honeymoon. We were married on the first afternoon of our stay. The staff were very accommodating. A place for the ceremony & signing had been selected and prepared beautifully before our arrival.... More
