About Villa Amavi


Made with love


Villa Amavi has been lovingly created with your well-being in mind. Reconnect with yourself and your loved ones in this luxurious tropical retreat. Indulge your body, mind and spirit in the beauty of the rainforest while taking in truly breath-taking seascapes.

Surrounded by idyllic views, you can create your favourite meal in the heart of the Villa - the kitchen - and enjoy a romantic dinner on the terrace. Or, for a family affair, cook outdoors and entertain your children, family and friends over board games and beverages. In quiet moments, escape to private locations around the Villa to sit, breathe, meditate and let mother nature wrap her arms around you.


Retreat like no other


Situated on top of the hill, this beautiful home also transforms into a wellness retreat many times a year where friends, family, executives and colleagues come together to recover, rejuvenate and reconnect.

Our experienced host will build a unique retreat program based on your needs which can include yoga, meditation, massage, clean cooking classes, art and creativity space, women’s circles, essential oils, facials, and a multitude of other conventional and alternative healing modalities to wake up your senses while calming your nervous system.

Plus, if there's a unique experience you'd like to create in this beautiful space, like a proposal, anniversary or birthday, we will work with you to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


Luxury naturally


Whether in a group, couple or alone, you'll be nurtured by our luxe creature comforts. From the finest linen to organic toiletries, to many coffee choices and a selection of local produce, you'll always feel cared for at Villa Amavi. You can refresh in the pool overlooking the ocean and soothe tired muscles and minds in our 2-person spa. Stretch out on the daybed, watch the birds drift by, take in some yoga in the poolside studio, or read a book sprawled out on our giant, plush sofas. You can even get in some screen time with Netflix and Apple TV or connect through our Wi-Fi. To create ambience, soundbars for music let you connect and enjoy your favourite music or meditation playlist. 


It is all for you


If a secluded refuge is what you seek, Villa Amavi is your sanctuary. 

We are committed to creating a peaceful, beautiful, natural setting that allows you to fall in love with nature, yourself, and your community.

It is our mission that you leave saying We came. We saw. We loved.

About our team 


Villa Amavi is the passion and lifestyle mission of corporate executive Linda McCarthy. Linda offers a diverse background in executive leadership, naturopathy, retreat management and software development and travels extensively for her work. 

Villa Amavi provided Linda with an inspiring and unmissable opportunity to bring together her life experience, operational expertise and respect for the healing capacity of nature to create and share Villa Amavi with people from all over the world.

“From the moment I arrived, I knew this Villa could not be mine alone. While my family, dogs and friends retreat here throughout the year, I knew the purpose of this natural wonder was beyond the people (and animals) I know.  My wish is that you arrive completely as you are and let the magic of this home and environment work through you. My guests often say they feel as if time has stopped or slowed right down. They speak of reconnecting with themselves, discarding the pressures of modern life and recovering their energy and creativity. 

The view never, ever disappoints. No photo can capture it and no video can do it justice.

Villa Amavi can be transformed into a couple's escape, a pre-wedding venue, a family vacation (including your pooch) or a group retreat. I work with local producers and businesses to give you an authentic tropical experience designed by others, like me, who have sought a sea change in far north Queensland. 

When I partner with you to design a retreat, I bring together experts in yoga, massage, meditation and group work from around the country to ensure you (and your friends or colleagues) have the opportunity to refocus, reconnect and rejuvenate.

Villa Amavi is my heart, and I hope that this luxurious home away from home is a place of unforgettable memories where you have the time to reconnect with yourself, nature and your team or loved ones.”
