Guest Book


We just got home from a wonderful weekend at Maitraya. We just love that place. Lisa and I have decided to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary there in about 18 months time.

My staff were bug eyed. It was beyond what most of them have ever dreamed was possible so I'm hoping they all were enriched.

Lisa and I just wanted to say thanks. We had a wonderful time.

I am just so pleased my children were able to spend some more time there. They are in that critical time when a persons mindset is forming.

I want them to be BIG thinkers and to believe that you can reach your goals and aspirations and to chase dreams and aim high etc etc. So thanks. My 3 year old Miranda was having tantrums when we left because she didn't want to leave. (nor did we)

It is an inspiring place that makes me feel anything is possible. It makes you believe. There is just such a positive energy that flows when you are in Maitraya.

We are very grateful for another visit. Thankyou.

- Rob & Lisa


"To the Team at Maitraya,

We would like to thank you for making our wedding on the 15th January 2011 such a wonderful day. We were impressed by your professionalism and dedication to providing top quality service for our event. In particular, a huge thank you to Shane and Kaye for ensuring everything went perfectly on the day.

Maitraya is certainly a stunning location and our guests were amazed by the beauty of the venue. Thank you to all again for helping us have such an amazing wedding day."

"Just to let you know we all had an amazing time at Maitraya on the weekend;  everyone was totally gob smacked & surprised!  One of the boys actually said "Hey Boss have we won lotto?!" They fished, surfed, rode bikes, swam in the beautiful pool, sauna & spa.  We are all a bit tuckered out today.  Shane & Kay were very hospitable & nothing was too much trouble.  So thankyou once again it was an unforgettable memory for us all ...  Please thank Jan for her assistance & we believe we left Maitraya as we found her with just footprints in the sand.  Thanks again guys."
