Elysian Retreat, where sustainability and a luxury lifestyle meet

Sold $7.4M by Barbara Wolveridge and Lynn Malone

Voted by Conde Nast Traveler as the 2019 Readers' Choice Award, #1 Top Island in Australia and the South Pacific, Whitsundays attracts over one million visitors each year and is growing at 3% per annum. The Elysian Retreat is one of four luxury oceanfront resorts located in the Whitsundays and offered for sale as a fully operational and newly upgraded boutique resort. Supported by the expansion of name-brand wellness resorts, hotels and lodges along the Australian eastern seaboard, the luxury sector is strong; particularly those with pure water, pure air, and pure landscape such as Elysian Retreat.

Operational from April 2019 following a multi-million-dollar redevelopment including new solar energy-generated infrastructure for electricity, water and waste systems, Elysian Retreat is internationally renowned for its seclusion, exclusivity and off-the-grid barefoot luxury experience as a 100% solar-powered resort.

Facilities include ten king ensuite villas with private balconies, a multipurpose Great House with lounge seating, library, restaurant dining, bar and a commercial kitchen; wet edge swimming pool surrounded by timber decks and outdoor seating; spa treatment centre, staff accommodations, helipad and 16-metre-deep mooring. Within the 7.98 acres of pristine land, there is land for additional water view villas which is supported by the existing infrastructure and plant facilities.
