Lizard Island
  • Set right on the Great Barrier Reef and boasting its own beautiful fringing reefs, Lizard Island has the advantage of being able to offer diving enthusiasts both half and full day reef experiences

  • With Lizard Island maybe being your last stop in Australia you need to make the most of the beach. The only option here would then be to stay in one of the Beachfront Suites which have direct beach access and a large day bed on your deck.

  • After some time exploring Australia, Lizard Island is the perfect place to relax and being all-inclusive you can revel in gourmet meals and the fine selection of Australian wines.

  • Being right on the reef you will be constantly be enticed by the water so why not jump on a paddle board, or jump in a kayak and go exploring.  For those more keen on keeping their feet firmly on the shore head to the research station to find out about the abundance of nature on the island.

Lizard Island is Australia’s premier island resort, a national park and isolated haven in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef offering no less than 24 exquisite white sand beaches and stylish, understated accommodation.

Each of the 40 luxury rooms, suites and villas are well appointed with a host of modern conveniences and a private veranda with views over the ocean or tropical gardens. Choose from Sunset Point Villas with great views from the private decks or Anchor Bay Suites, each with a pathway leading directly to the beach. The Pavilion is the ultimate accommodation, with a vast interior and a 270 degree spectacular view from its expansive deck with plunge pool.

Dining at Lizard Island is a simple and relaxed affair. The open-air restaurant, Osprey's, offers a daily changing menu fusing Asian, Australian and European dishes of the finest local produce including wonderful fresh seafood and luscious tropical fruits. Private dining can also be arranged, a highlight being a 7 course dégustation menu with matching wine. The Bar and Lounge are open all day and have comfortable sofas for relaxing on and enjoying coffees, teas, juices and the extensive wine list.

The hotel has a wide array of activities available including tennis, nature walks, non-motorised water-sports, picnics to remote coves and diving on the inner and outer reefs. As an alternative to all of this exploration, a trip to the indulgent Azure Spa for one of the signature treatments is a great way to wind down after a busy day.
