We had a fantastic stay at Lizard Island - stunningly beautiful location, great accommodation and excellent service from the whole team. There is a range of activities on offer and snorkelling right off the beach is available on a number of beaches. We would highly recommend a visit.

We stayed here for 5 nights in July of this year. We had a suite with a plunge-pool/spa. We are generally not 'beach/resort people' but thought we'd give it a try. AMAZING! I thought we'd get in a boat to get to The Barrier Reef to go snorkelling, well yes you can if you go scuba diving, but walk straight... More

I will start from the end of the vacation, as this is why I give 4 out of 5. We loved everything until the time of checkout. We were booked on the 12.25 flight back to cairns, checkout time at 11am and we were asked to show at the reception for pickup to the airport right before 12. First disappointment... More

Truly one of the most memorable vacation experiences. The island is a treasure to be explored; the resort is 5 star quality; the hosts and staff were friendly, outgoing and courteous; and the amenities and activities were fantastic. This doesn't come without a price, but if you are looking for a once in a life-time pampering in a special place,... More

This is a truly special place. We had a very relaxing stay and were completely blown away by the quality of the food and wine served. We stayed in 2 rooms: a Sunset Beach Plunge Pool Villa for 5 nights and an Anchor Bay Suite for 1 night. The smaller PPV was perfect with good privacy, great elevated views of... More

Lizard Island is the Perfect choice for Great Barrier Reef experience. Boutique luxury, good food and service. Lizard Island looks far better in strong sunlight but this is not guaranteed . Nonetheless a memorable stay . Snorkelling with turtles is a must!
