We spent three nights on Lizard Island and all we can say is WOW! Our flight in was spectacular. The room was lush and spacious and well kept. The staff are extremely nice, we were able to make our private excursions to our own island packed with amazing food and drink. You are VERY well kept on this island and... More

As the only spot we saw on the Great Barrier Reef, I am glad we decided (at the last minute) to change to Lizard Island. It was exclusive but friendly. We met us with friends we met in Uluru and had many wonderful evenings. Very flexible staff. Noel, our expert snorkeler, was a delight to have met and he showed... More

We spent the most incredible 5 days on Lizard Island for our late February, early March 2014 honeymoon. I still daydream about our experiences on this beautiful resort and the surrounding National Park. For me the pure luxury of the resort played second fiddle to the truly unique location on the Great Barrier Reef and the total seclusion that the... More

At first we were bummed that Qualia was booked, but after 5 days at the Lizard Island Resort, I cannot imagine a better luxury island experience anywhere else in the world. A couple of things, Lizard Islsnd Resort is the only resort on the island and the room rate is all-inclusive. Chartered flight into the island offers a gorgeous aerial... More

Have recently been on our third trip to the island and stayed for 7 nights. My husband and I love the place. We are keen snorkellers and love walking down to the beach first thing of a morning for a snorkel in the sheltered bay. Having access to a motorised dinghy is a plus for exploring beaches and islets around... More

If you like to get away from it all to enjoy what the natural world has to offer and still have a bit of luxury, this is the perfect destination. It is certainly tucked away off the beaten path. We took a plane from the US to Sydney and then another to the Port Douglas/Daintree area. After that journey, we... More

The resort is great. We stayed in the "cheapest" room and it had great views and great accommodations. The food is excellent. A highlight of the trip was when we got to take one of hte private boats by ourselves to a hidden island. We had forgotten to bring the cooler the resort packed for us, but they tracked us... More

My husband and I visited Lizard Island Resort for 4 nights in December 2013, staying in the Anchor Bay suites. I had always wanted to see the Great Barrier Reef and it is as breathtaking and stunning as I had always imagined. As for the Lizard Island resort, we were most impressed with staff. They are all so friendly and... More
