Superb holiday. Nice little flight to island and welcome at the tiny terminal !!! We had a beautiful room at the end of one of the pathways. So quiet and private (as with all the suites. ) The suite was perfect in every way with lovely views and our own little path to the beach. Everything about the room was... More

There are lots of water activities and also a number of walks. You can do as much or as little as you please.The natural surrounds are truly beautiful and the... More

Superb holiday/destination. If it's luxury, fine food and wine, and great service then this is the place for you. Reef and crystal clear waters fantastic for snorkelling and diving. Champagne and picnic on secluded beach very special treat.

Our family of four (with ten year old twins) stayed for three nights during the soft reopening post cyclone. What a fantastic stay! The island is stunningly beautiful and the resort is super luxurious. Every meal is a gourmet experience, with the view of the awesome anchor bay.

I spent 5 idyllic nights at Lizard Island during its "soft re-opening" period. What a treat! The beaches are white and clean and the water is clear azure blue with coral reefs to explore right off the main beach. The sunsets are amazing! The accommodation was large, clean, relaxing and beautifully appointed, and just metres from the beach. The food... More

Lizard Island advertises as being ' Like nowhere else ' and it most certainly is. My family and I were fortunate enough to experience 2 nights on Lizard, and it exceeded our expectations and beyond. From the moment you are greeted at the quaint little ' airport ' by your own personal staff members with cool towels, who are genuinely... More
