    Yoga on our pavilion was amazing, wonderful setting and Maddie was a great yoga teacher and extremely calming. The spa treatment was perfect and the girls there; Nicole, Chantelle and Charlotte were amazing, so friendly, accommodating and polite. - Jenny

    If you are looking for the most friendly, comfortable, and exquisite place to relax, this is it! Sand, sun, snorkel, dive, boat, paddle board, hike, relax. It’s all here! The spa was awesome with Beck, best pedicure ever. Ava was awesome on the beach, Magic was totally chill and helpful. The whole crew on the dive boat was awesome. The cabins on the beach are amazing. But the food, and diversity of menus was off the chart. Wine pairings to match. - Tom

    This was our fourth visit to Lizard Island so that should serve as an indicator of our opinion of the resort (one of our favorite places in the world). The room and the dining was exceptional as always. The spa staff were terrific - knowledgeable and professional. We had a massage and a facial. - The2TravelingFools
