After traveling and touring Sydney and Melbourne, Lizard Island was a great way to totally relax. It was a totally "no worries" destination. The landscape, accomodations,food, beverage and especially the staff were all remarkable!

After hearing great things about Lizard Island from friends we were so excited to finally visit Lizard Island. The food was a highlight, everything was amazing and such lovely staff in the restaurant. Corinna at the front desk was especially helpful with booking our excursions and was always smiling. A huge thank you to Suze the naturalist. The turtle tour,...

This really is paradise, the island is beautiful , stunning white sand beaches with clear warm oceans. You have have complete seclusion on your own private beach by using the motorboats available with a ready made pinic. The food is michelin star quality, absolutely stunning. However, the best thing is the staff, so friendly, helpful and nothing was too much...

Lizard Island Resort was very nearly our best travel experience. Ever. The Great Barrier Reef has always been on the Must-See list and we worried that we had left this destination too late as the global coral bleaching event has been severe the past few years. Indeed the reef itself in this northern region is severely damaged although there is...

Lizard Island can be summed up in two words: remote and accommodating. The service is top notch - they accommodated a special dive request so we could get 2 outer reef dives in (including Cod Hole - amazing!) before flying the next day - very atypical for set dive schedules. Lizard Island feels like you're "away from it all" with...

So nice to get away and reconnect as a couple, enjoy each others company, relax and enjoy the magic of Lizard Island. This is our favourite destination and just a couple of days sees us rejuvenated, relaxed. We are able to appreciate how hard we have worked and enjoy the benefits for that; it is so nice to be able...
