We visited Lizard Island in 2013 and we still to this day speak about this most amazing trip. The service, facilities, staff and the island were wonderful. The restaurant had a varied and beautiful menu. All meals were fantastic. The beauty of this trip is all was included. All meals and alcohol and there is no signing bills, transactions, necessity...

Paying $2,000+ per night, I certainly expected faultless service and general perfection and lizard island certainly didn't disappoint. The service was faultless and attentive without being overbearing and clumsy. The breakfast was probably the best I have ever had anywhere with delicious homemade pastries and a creative hot breakfast menu that changed every day we were there. The food selection... More

We spent three nights and had a wonderful time, just not enough! The food was fantastic as well as the service. The recreation staff was great and very helpful. We really enjoyed snorkeling, a picnic lunch basket and a private beach.

Fantastic diving. I have never seen giant clams before. They have world class snorkeling directly off of the beach. The staff at the resort has a great attitude and seems very happy to be there. Love the sunsets

The flight over the Great Barrier Reef is a wonderful prelude to the vistas at Lizard. Everything is first class, from the moment you are greeted at the airport with a cold cloth, to the canapés upon arrival to the incredible views in the restaurant area. The rooms are lovely, understated elegance with every convenience. The linens are great, as... More

Lizard Island is a beautiful place where you can enjoy excellent snorkeling and diving in clear blue waters with a variety of different reefs to explore. Excellent meals using local and fresh ingredients fuel this exploration and between expeditions you can enjoy the comfort of a beautifully appointed room.

The place was beautiful. We went to Clam Garden, and it was like snorkeling in the aquarium. The resort is great - lovely view, great staff, clean rooms, amazing food. Everything was just perfect. I will go back in a heartbeat. Definitely worth it!

Was our stay as amazing as we expected it to be? Regretfully no. The location is of course amazing and the beach like a dream with soft white sand and you can snorkel straight from the beach and see amazing underwater life. The rooms are brand new and very nicely designed. Most are "twins" so you do not have complete... More

Beautifully appointed rooms all have good location along waterfront-lovely and white and clean and fresh and quite roomy in size with a good design, very modern and comfortable. Straight views of beautiful colored sea with plenty of sea life. The concept of having access to many pristine beaches close by that were a boat ride away which was complimentary was... More
