“Sheer indulgence & relaxation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Wow!!
What an amazing place. We stayed last weekend for an indulgent family holiday & we were blown away by the place itself, the food & the impeccable service.
The facilities on the island are amazing from incredible villas, pool, spa, tennis court, lounge areas & amazing little daybeds scattered all over. Perfect for the ultimate holiday experience.
The team on Makepeace were fantastic - Nick, Nic, Sarah, Anna & Jason were all so attentive and made the stay one we will never forget.
Nick's food was incredible, every meal was very impressive & they went out of their way to cater for our 2yo as well.
Now we just need now to make another reason to head back.....

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic, however villas are extra special & that bath tub is out of this world!

My travel agent recommended MakePeace for a recent work conference of 15 people. From the website images we were super excited to arrive, but the beautiful surroundings is just the start of what makes this place amazing!

The staff catered to our every want and need and sometimes annoying requests – just about any time of day. They are incredibly accommodating and always thinking one step ahead to ensure the smooth running of the day.

The food, oh my goodness, words can’t explain how amazing the food was! This dude can cook. We all left the island about 2kg heavier than when we arrived (and we were only there for two days!)

Love the variety of sporting activities on offer. When we finally did leave the wonders of the pool and spa, we enjoyed fishing off the wharf (where I caught a baby shark!), kayaking, pool. We didn’t even get time for tennis and the other number of water activities.

The decor is stunning. All the little touches from the MP3 players/stereo in our rooms – which different playlists depending on the time of day. The turndown service. Even the lighting in the different rooms. And naturally all the Balinese decorations, having been shipped over to Australia!

MakePeace – it’s about the details!

I wish I never watched a recent episode of The Living Room where they featured MakePeace, because now I just wanna go back.

Already a few of us are thinking of getting a group together and heading back for our birthdays.

Will never forget this experience. Thank you MakePeace!

Room Tip: Def get Richard Branson's room!

We recently stayed on Makepeace Island with our families including small children for a celebration. We have travelled the world and this would have to be one of the most memorable occasions and so close to Noosaville at our back door.The entire team at Makepeace was fantastic, their customer skills were outstanding as were attention to details making sure we all had a great time.Nothing was a problem to any of the staff and everyone was so happy and co operative.The food was just wonderful with a great selection , it was just a culinary experience, a wonderful selection of local produce.Facilities such as a sailing boat, tennis court, swimming pool, spa, and fishing ( bait provided)
Makepeace Island is very different from staying at a hotel or resort, it is a private hideaway making it a very special place to stay in a luxurious home with all the facilities. I cant wait to return to this beautiful paradise.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The Balinese House is fantastic for a family , however the villa's are very special for a romant...

Dear MakePeace Island and Staff,
Just writing to say thank you to you and your staff for a wonderful stay!

Food was fantastic – in fact if we had stayed longer we would have had to ask to reduce the amounts, or start doing kayak laps around the island, twenty laps twice a day.

Premises fantastic, location cool, housekeeping – very efficient and very subtle. I thought I saw Sarah whooshing around at one stage. But overall we messed up our rooms one minute and the next they were back to new condition.

Service – attentive but relaxed and not overbearing. Your team made the stay homely, relaxing, no fuss.

The kids loved helping make bread and you really spoilt them with meal choice.
Very nice to have calamari on hand the next day when you did not have it on hand on day one. Thank you for going that extra step and organising the little things like this.

The kids really packed allot in on one day: - swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing, speed boating and Chess.


I am sure you and your team would have organised anything had we asked.


Overall we have put MakePeace and your team at the top of our food, service, and best holiday location list ever.

We will be back!

Room Tip: All great. You just need to chose whether you want to be close to the pool, bar, amenities in the 4...
