Luxury Holidays At Lizard Island

Australia’s northernmost island beach resort has undergone an impressive reinvention and welcomes guests to appreciate its natural wonders – both marine and land-based. With an enviable position on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, Lizard Island is a remote and secluded haven with elegant interiors by acclaimed designers, Hecker Guthrie. There’s a restaurant with an open kitchen, where guests can relax, indulge and savour the freshest Australian seafood, plus a stylish bar, extended spa and more than twenty powdery-white beaches to explore.

  Other facilities include a freshwater swimming pool, library and boutique. A luxury escape like no other, the surroundings are secluded and tranquil, and with no mobile-phone coverage, guests will feel a million miles from the stresses of modern life, yet there are plenty of activities and amenities to entertain the adventurous traveller. Complimentary activities include beach picnics, nature trails and tennis, and with a year-round tropical climate, sublime beaches, inviting lagoon and protected national park, guests can venture into the flora and fauna with a resident Naturalist, snorkel in the pristine waters or enjoy a sunset cruise.

Property Highlights:expand_more
Luxury Beach

The only resort located directly on the shores of the Great Barrier Reef, Lizard Island offers an incredible essence of natural privacy amid its twenty-four white-sand beaches. The shorelines here offer a haven of isolation from the rush of the outside world and are a perfect entrance to the crystal-clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Choose paddleboarding or a motorised dinghy to glide across the waters, or even a glass-bottom sea kayak to admire the colourful collection of marine life along the seabed.

Scuba Diving

Scuba-diving opportunities are endless around Lizard Island. Stay close to the isle and explore its beautiful fringing reefs - accessed directly from the pristine beaches - or just a short boat ride away, explore the colourful Outer Reef, including the world-famous Cod Hole, where you can expect the curious Potato Cod to inspect you up close. No matter your diving ability, Lizard Island and its incredible natural marine surroundings are sure to leave you with unforgettable underwater memories.

Wildlife Encounters

Enjoy truly unique eco-tourism experiences throughout the year at Lizard Island. For example, the month of January is a key time for Green Tree Frogs to breed, while in May, Green Sea Turtles feed all along the coastline. Fast forward to September and Humpback Whales make an appearance in the bay. The entire year is a treasure trove of animal encounters and you're unlikely to miss out, whichever month you visit.

Spa & Wellness

The luxurious Essentia Day Spa offers a range of spa rituals and treatments inspired by nature, including the exclusive La Biosthetique skincare. Guests can choose from a variety of spa packages to relax and rejuvenate in tranquil surroundings.
