PRIVATE LUXURY: Sir Richard Branson's Makepeace Island, Noosa, Australia
Sir Richard Branson's Balinese-style private island, Makepeace Island* at Noosa on Australia's Sunshine Coast, has opened its doors for private lease for the first time.  The 25 acre heart shaped island can accommodate up to 22 guests in either the Bali House or the three individually decorated bures.
Located in Noosa River the island has been designed to offer the ultimate privacy while respecting its unique coastal location. Until now the island has been a private retreat for guests of the owners, Sir Richard Branson and Brett Godfrey, founders of Virgin Blue (now Virgin Australia).

With the news that the island will be available to rent Branson said, 'When neither Brett nor myself are visiting Makepeace, we will make the island and its facilities available for others to enjoy the tranquillity of what is a very special place'.
Guests can take advantage of the tennis court, spa facilities, lagoon pool, theatre, office facilities and the expansive indoor bar.  The Makepeace Island team will be on hand to suggest activities both on the island and in the local area.  However, we are told that one of the most common guest activities while on the island is just 'taking it easy'.

The Luxury Travel Bible loves the beautiful Balinese-style property's calming decor (Makepeace is a very appropriate name) including the very inviting volcanic boulder bathtubs and the antiques and commissioned furniture acquired in Bali, Java and elsewhere in Indonesia..
