AQUILA RETREAT IS The Ultimate luxury group accommodation - Sunshine Coast

Located just 8 minutes from Mooloolaba Beach* and 11 minutes from the Sunshine Coast airport, Aquila Retreat was built in 2001 and fast established itself as one of Buderim’s premier guest houses. The property has recently undergone extensive renovations to shine again as a magnificent, super central luxury accommodation for groups coming to the Sunshine Coast.

Situated privately on 9.5 acres on top of Buderim Mountain, the property boasts a rainforest crevice and bamboo forests, with stunning sweeping views to Moreton Island and the Glasshouse Mountains. Sleeping 30 people Aquila is ideal for retreats, family holidays, celebrations, reunions and relaxing weekends.

Aquila Retreat was the first property in Queensland to be awarded five green stars for its eco-friendly construction. Designed by an Indian architect who aligned the home to the sun, moon, stars and the meridians of the earth, using feng shui and geomancy** techniques. Aquila provides a non-toxic environment, uniquely attuned to the elemental forces of air, fire, water, earth and ether.  The home has been uniquely designed to protect its inhabitants from geopathic stress and to allow energy to flow evenly and promoting an extraordinary sense of health and well-being.

*Mooloolaba beach was voted Australia’s fourth-best beach and the Sunshine Coasts #1 beach, by Trip Advisor 2019.

**The art of placing or arranging buildings or other sites auspiciously.

THe name Aquila retreat

 The name Aquila is Latin for ‘eagle’.

Aquila Retreat was powerfully designed to align with the Aquila (eagle) constellation on the celestial equator. In Greco-Roman mythology, the eagle represents the bird that carried Zeus/Jupiter’s thunderbolts. In spiritual terms, the name Aquila holds great reverence.

At Aquila we believe luxury is defined in the things you can see as much as the things you can’t!, such as they way you’ll sleep! Zzzzzz We’ve spared no expense at Aquila to confidently bring you and your group the best night’s sleep on the Sunshine Coast and quite possibly the best night’s sleep you have ever had! The most comfortable beds in the world are HYPNOS beds. Chosen by Her Majesty the Queen of England and now also chosen by Aquila Retreat.
