Lizard Island Sets December Reopening Date

November 23, 2020 Resort News No Comments

Celebrated as one of Australia’s most idyllic tropical luxury island retreats, Lizard Island has announced it will reopen for guests on December 14, following a nine-month closure due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Recently voted Travel + Leisure’s top Australian resort in its acclaimed World’s Best Awards 2020 list, before  placing among the Top 20 resorts in the Australia Pacific region in the Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards for 2020 this month, Lizard Island is perfectly placed to welcome guests back to its private setting situated on the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef.

The resort’s reopening comes just in time for summer and the festive season, an ideal time to visit North Queensland, when the days are warm and the waters invite swimming and snorkelling to explore the reef.

With just 40 beach-house style suites catering to a small number of guests and more than 20 private beaches ready to be explored, an escape to Lizard Island promises the ultimate luxury: plenty of space to enjoy island paradise with the ones who matter most.

Several new measures are in place at Lizard Island to offer an even more privately tailored stay at the resort and experience of the Great Barrier Reef. A newly appointed Guest Services Manager will offer a personalised pre-arrival check-in at Cairns and help finalise guests’ itineraries to make the most of their time on the island. A raft of private and guided experiences can be enjoyed with friends and family, on an exclusive basis if requested, including a private luxury boat charter for fishing, snorkelling and diving excursions on the reef.

Lizard Island is designed to offer guests an ultimate private getaway. All suites are light-filled and spaced to offer guests a place of their own along with generous indoor and outdoor lounging areas offering views of Sunset Beach or Anchor Bay.  The relaxed open-air restaurant and bar welcome a gentle breeze and feature a menu of the freshest of Queensland ingredients including locally caught seafood and premium drinks.

Greg Magi, Executive Director of Parks & Resorts for Delaware North, the operator of Lizard Island, said the team was very excited to be welcoming guests back to the resort after an extended break.

“We hope Aussie travellers will choose now to make a break for the island paradise of Lizard Island, and relax in the stylish luxury they deserve,” Mr Magi said.

“With plenty of fresh air, no crowds and fabulous dining, plus an exciting array of marine and land adventures from a cruise in a motorised dinghy to claim a private beach or a snorkel straight from the beach to explore the underwater Giant Clam Gardens, we think there’s no better place for Australians to reclaim their love of travel,” he said.

Lizard Island is the northernmost island on the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. With just 40 guest suites and villas offering direct access to more than 20 white-sanded beaches, an escape to Lizard Island is a luxuriously exclusive experience. Guests venture to remote snorkelling and diving spots on the inner and outer reefs where hundreds of vibrant fish and coral species thrive. Hikes retrace Captain Cook’s footsteps and offer panoramic views of the reef while the Australian Museum Lizard Island Research Station offers a fascinating insight into the day-to-day conservation of Lizard Island’s incredible natural environment.
