Boho Luxe Retreat

Located on beautiful Buderim, elevated 180 meters above sea level, just 8 minutes from Mooloolaba Beach and 11 minutes from the Sunshine Coast Airport, Aquila Retreat is a boho-luxe rainforest retreat with stunning views, set within almost 10 acres of grounds, all for your exclusive hire.

The Sunshine Coast’s ultimate luxury group accommodation, Aquila is a magical destination experience for you and your group if planning a wedding, retreat, birthday, workshop, board meeting or any event; Christmas, Easter, birthdays, reunions, anniversaries, baby showers, bridal showers, high teas, girls weekend, boys weekend, team weekends and the list goes on!

Aquila’s designer interior fit-out, guest inclusions, and ancillaries are superior. Newly renovated, this boho-luxe emporium (sleeping 30) is absolute luxury. Luxurious Saya toiletries for each guest, Bonnie & Neil cushions, layers of designer books and sumptuous furnishings have come together to create a ‘nest for a guest’ that is second to none!

Wedding Ceremony + Event Spaces + Parking 

Offering a Hinterland, rainforest feel, within minutes of the beach, couples can uniquely enjoy wedding photography in both a hinterland and a coastal setting. On site rainforest areas, provide Daintree-like photo opportunities, creating stunning imagery during your stay.

Couples have access to several unique options to arrange the most relaxing and exquisite wedding retreat, and host pre-wedding celebrations as well as post-wedding recovery events with all their family and friends. 

Many couples choose to marry on Aquila’s jetty on the serene lily pad pond, with guests enjoying drinks and or grazing under the nearby bamboo directly after. Later the reception can continue in the forested marquee area or back up at the retreat house in a festive and relaxed style.

The retreat can accommodate standing and seated receptions without the requirement for a marquee, although Aquila has a designated event area for a Sperry Tent, Marquee or Tipi, should this be your vision. Multiple alfresco entertaining spaces can double as wet weather ceremony location options.

Aquila’s concourse directly outside the house is ideal for festoon lighting, drink and food vans. A chilled, boho style, atmosphere can be so easily created at this gorgeous venue without great expense. Aquila boasts a series of entertaining spaces and is fully equipped with catering facilities. Guests and Caterers have a choice of gas, induction and BBQ cooking. There are multiple ovens, including a steam oven and a total of three indoor and outdoor kitchens. The flexibility of this venue and its options are endless!

Parking on site for up to 50 cars.
