We just had the absolute pleasure of staying at one of the most beautiful places in the world. Lizard Island on the northern end of the Great Barrier Reef is one of the most luxurious, relaxing wonderful places we have ever been to. Swimming in Aqua blue water with turtles, looking at magnificent giant clams and coral gardens with millions... More

Summary: incredible island with amazing beaches and access to the wonders of the Barrier Reef. The food is the best that I have eaten at a resort. Worthy of 1 Michelin star or a Zagat rating of 24 to 25. Staff are friendly with western standards of 5 star service. The island is the most Northerly of the resort island... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in the Sunset villas and was treated like royalty from the moment we boarded the plane in Cairns. The food is fine dining and absolutely amazing. Great variety and perfectly prepared. We used one of the small boats and took a lunch picnic to one of the secluded beaches. It was like being the... More

My wife and I came to this resort for our honeymoon about a year and a half ago. In hindsight, we should have stayed longer than 3 days because it was like living in paradise. Our favorite part was being to bring a small dingy out into the water with a packed picnic lunch. We snorkeled and explored some of... More

Lizard Island is a very special place. The many beaches are stunning, and the fact that you can choose more than one is great! We walked around the rocks from the main beach to the turtle beach exploring a few of them. This was not encouraged by the hotel, but we found it no trouble at all. The food is... More

...if you remember the amazing Jacques Cousteau films and craving adventure then Lizard island is a must ! The journey began at a small airfield in Cairns and we travelled a deux with a young pilot in a 'plane called Kukaburra - what an incredible start to the adventure that proved to be. The flight allowed us to peer down... More

This is the most beautiful spot in the world- fantastic to have nature around you and to also be simultaneously pampered with the best food and friendly service. The staff could not make you feel more welcome but without any stuffiness. Even when it rained the staff provided all sorts of activities we could do to keep us up with... More

Lets start with the GOOD: The location and scenery of this island are second to none and are exactly as described - simply outstanding and will not disappoint. Everything we wanted and more! Now the BAD: Service. Other than during meals - never once were my wife or I asked if we wanted anything to drink - or if we... More
