Lizard Island Resort

Lizard Island

Lizard Island

It begins with a special place.

Beautiful, natural and wild, the most northern Great Barrier Reef resort, Lizard Island is a place reserved for the fortunate few.

Consistently ranked as one of the top hotels of the world for more than a decade, Lizard Island offers the natural beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, uninterrupted by the rest of the world. Our 24 white sand beaches lie undisturbed but for the occasional footprints.

Tucked amid the largest reef system in the world, snorkelling or diving and deep-sea game fishing excursions reveal a diversity of life beneath crystal blue waters. The Cod Hole, one of the area’s world-famous dive sites, is just a short boat ride away.

Secluded picnics on private beaches open a window of luxury. Accessible only by private plane, this Great Barrier Reef resort rests discreetly within the island oasis.

Indulge in a range of natural Australian spa treatments to generate health and balance. Inspired by nature, our powerful treatments channel indigenous techniques to enrich your experience. 

Deep-sea excursions, secluded picnics on private beaches, five-star cuisine and indulgent spa treatments are just some of the activities we offer at our Great Barrier Reef resort.

Our serene and private accommodation provides elegant views of the Australian seascape. Choose between private villas, suites or a pavilion and make Lizard Island your own personal island retreat on the Great Barrier Reef.

Cyclone Nathan Update

Whilst we continue to assess the full impact of Cyclone Nathan on the buildings and environment in and around the resort, we wish to make it very clear that our intention is to rebuild and reopen Lizard Island as one of Australia’s most prestigious resorts. At this time however, we are still determining the timeframe and will be sure to update the website as soon as we have a confirmed re-open date.
