Whitsundays & Great Barrier Reef

Lizard Island

'Outsanding Reef Position; Exclusive Accommodation'

Lizard Island is a National Park covering 1,013 hectares of the Great Barrier Reef and has a lagoon, 24 powder-white beaches and 40 luxurious suites. This exclusive destination will give you secluded living, five star dining and romantic picnics to die for! Views from the suites and villas are far-reaching across the ocean and islands with several in elevated positions for even more scope. Furnishings are elegant, utilising natural wood, and features are contemporary including Bose sound systems - private decks or balconies come as standard. As expected, snorkelling and diving opportunities on the reef are almost endless with all levels catered for. Osprey’s Restaurant is open from dawn to dusk for fine island dining whilst the relaxing treatments of Azure Spa are an absolute must. The resort welcomes children over 12 years of age.

In Our Opinion

‘There is undoubtedly a reason why Lizard Island is consistently ranked as one of the top hotels in the world. Aside from the amazing diving and snorkelling opportunities, the island has a superb spa and a renowned five star restaurant.’
