A secluded oasis on a primarily uninhabited island off the coast of Australia and amid the most abundant Great Barrier Reef. The rooms have wonderful views with fresh modern furniture and excellent service. As a premium resort, the food is limited but very good. Their wine pairing is excellent and their knowledge of the area and toes is impeccable. Secluded... More

Very comfortable, quiet accommodation right on the foreshore. The resort is very welcoming and has great amenities. It offers all the sorts of activities one would want at the reef, as well as delicious food.

One of the nicest vacations we have had. Great snorkeling and diving at the reef. Excellent cuisine in the restaurant, with wine matching. Most importantly; Outstanding staff who make you feel cared for and pampered! Important note: winter (July) seems one of the best season as warm but not humid.

It was amazing. This was a huge trip for my family and when we made the reservation and looked at all the expenses we would be incurring for the trip (airfare etc.) we became nervous when we read quite a few reviews that didn't favor Lizard Island. As the staff I emailed will attest, I most likely was that pain... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the resort. The room was spacious and the bed super comfy. The resort staff was very attentive. Every meal was paired with an excellent wine choice. The food was excellent. We went on the outer reef dive and also a night dive. What a great first experience with the GBR! The beach... More

We planned in advance, communicated our dive preferences via email. Basically severe underwater damage due to two cyclones and the resort had to be rebuilt, reopening in 2015. Great lodging but generally poor staff. The dive operation has a strict dive schedule alternating days between one dive "inside the reef site" and two dive "outside the reef" sites. Also there...

The trip was almost faultless. Our room, one of the Anchor Beach suites, was beautiful, clean, serviced regularly. Only 40 metres to the water. The scenery around the island was as good as we have seen anywhere.Resort staff were friendly and efficient. The holiday was very expensive but worthwhile. We thought the food was overly complex. We would have preferred... More

Lizard Island resort was an incredible experience. A plunge pool over looking pristine turquoise waters, friendly helpful staff, opportunities galore to explore the reef from above and below, wonderful food...the list goes on and on. I couldn't recommend this place more highly - it is the stuff of dreams!

If you only visit one luxury resort in your life - make it Lizard Island. Location is isolated and away from the daily grind of life. Staff are superb, best I have ever encounted. A must do is the Cod Hole trip, whether you dive or snorkell, don't miss it.

Dear Kurranulla16, Thank for taking time to let us know how your stay was on Trip Advisor. It truly is a special place on earth and going to Cod Hole to snorkel or dive is one of the most unique things to do ever. Thanks again and we look forward to your return. Cheers Joe More
