Built with the environment firmly at the front of mind, Maitraya relies on innovative design and the latest technologies to ensure that the environmental impact of the residence and our guests is kept to an absolute minimum.
The Maitraya residence receives a portion of its power through our solar power system that takes the energy from the solar array and converts it into 240v power for the home. The system generates 55kW hours per day on average, providing enough power for four average size homes and surplus energy is exported back to the grid.
During times when the resort uses more power than is generated, it draws what it can from the solar array and the remainder from the grid. At night the system puts itself to sleep to conserve power.
Guests are encouraged to separate their recycling. Food waste can be separated and fed to the chickens on the property. In exchange guests are welcome to collect eggs and pick fruit from the orchard. enabling gravity feeding of the entire residence – so no power is required.
- Peak output: 12.6kW
- 4 banks of panels
- 3 banks to grid can light main house in event of blackout
- Maintenance appliances are run during the day

Uniquely sublime !!!
You just run out of superlatives here. The privacy is unmatched, anywhere we've stayed. A whole headland and two beaches to yourself. The property is magnificently designed, built and positioned. The master-suite, with uninterrupted views over the ocean, out to the islands, and an auto-sliding roof for star-gazing, just can't be beaten. The indoor pool was excellent for a late swim once the sun had gone down, and a glass of red watching the sunset with kangaroos for company... well, enough said. Spoil yourself !
An amazing stay at a truly iconic home. Everything you require and more, we couldn't do everything that was on offer! With a group of twelve for 3 nights everyone was blown away with the natural beauty of the surrounds and the decadence Maitraya exudes. Be it one of a myriad of sporting activities on offer or sneaking away for a quick relax this place has it all.
Wonderful intergeneraional holiday. Private Retreat
