We have just arrived back from spending the most amazing 30th Wedding Anniversary on Lizard Island that we could have imagined. We knew it was going to be exceptional from the start when we when flew our own small Aeroplane in to the remote Airstrip and a beautiful young staff member was already there waiting to pick us up as...

Escape to the Great Barrier Reef in style, located in the middle of a Australian National Park, this is fantastic resort. Service is incredible at Every level food,beach house, front desk, all excellent. The guest/staff ratio is at least 10 to 1. ! Yes a bit costly but worth every penny!

Awesome experience from the moment we landed with welcome champagne and snack to exquisite dinners (best kitchen ever!) to beach club staff who helped us with all boating, snorkeling adventures and the wait staff who was ever pleasant and helpful! The quietness and privacy are great. Waters so clear and warm. Getting there is quite a trip to Cairns then...

Dear Linda W, I hope 2017 is starting well for you, and I thank you for your feedback on the resort. Lizard Island really is a perfect spot to relax and unwind, with as much or as little privacy as you would like, which is one of the benefits of remote destinations.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were spoilt. The food, the staff, the apartments were all excellent. We went snorkeling and diving and we're looked after very professionally. Definitely we are coming back next year, hopefully for a month this time. A piece of paradise

This place was just "the best" chill out place ever. Batteries well and truly recharged. Best place, best food, best drink, best service, best atmosphere, best welcome, best everything. But without fail the thing that made it truly great, was the people that work their. They are just truly lovely people.

Amazing place with wonderful food, service and accommodation. The staff were all very friendly and informed, and the rooms were spotless every day. The sea is an amazing aqua blue and must be seen.
