Lizard Island Resort, Great Barrier Reef

Lying in the remote northerly sector of the Great Barrier Reef, Lizard Island is considered one of Australia’s most stylish and luxurious island retreats. Fringed by 24 powdery white sand beaches and encircled by colourful coral reefs, this secluded island outpost is idyllic.

The resort has 39 rooms, suites and villas. Anchor Bay Rooms are set in tropical garden with easy access to the beach. For the ultimate in privacy and comfort, The Pavilion is perched high above the coral sea with stunning views, every comfort and a private plunge pool. All are spacious and well appointed, private deck or balcony with ocean or beach views, the ideal place to while away the siesta hour.

For those looking for some time away from the children, then you will be pleased to know that Lizard island only takes children over the age of 10.

Dining is one of Lizard Island's many pleasures, with the accent on fresh seafood and superb local produce and menus drawing on flavor from across the globe.

Other amenities include a guest lounge and bar, a large swimming pool with sun deck, a gymnasium and the Azure Spa, which offers a range of treatments inspired by nature.

A variety of recreational activities include tennis and self-guided island walks and nature trails. However, as you might expect, the main focus here is on the Great Barrier Reef with its remarkable coral system and rich marine life. Apart from diving and snorkeling, catamaran or dinghy sailing, fishing safaris and glass-bottom paddle skis may be arranged.
