Lizard Island, een waar paradijsje temidden van het Great Barrier Reef. Het telt maar liefst vierentwintig poederwitte zandstranden en is ideaal wanneer u op zoek bent naar rust, zon en strand tijdens uw reis door Australië, maar zeker ook wanneer u wilt duiken en snorkelen biedt dit luxueuze eiland alle mogelijkheden daartoe.
Lizard Island suffered from a series of cyclones and therefore was completely rebuilt within the last three years. In every way it has emerged as a spectacular resort and creates a unique atmosphere for the tourist. Lizard is very far north and requires a small plane flight from Cairns, so from Sydney it is certainly more of an effort. The reward is the water temperature- so warm that even scuba diving does not require a wet suit! Diving and snorkelling areas are accessed both off the beach and by boat, and there is truly breathtaking marine life to be enjoyed. My husband and I are divers, but even snorkelling from the beach meters away from the units provides beautiful (and free) marine life vistas. The resort is small and accessible, with units dotting Anchor Beach and a central dining/reception area and nearby pool/shop/spa. Each meal is a la carte and the menus are fresh daily. My husband and I are gluten free and this was handled beautifully. The food is everything that one could hope for- magnificent raw produce, healthy interesting combinations...perfect portion size and the sense that the chef could produce anything one desired.I would recommend the degustation dinner- a very delicious banquet served in a private cabana- and this is optional on any night. The accommodation was lovely- we had the most 'meagre' of suites which was still beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable. I did visit another larger suite which was just that, larger, very impressive but with the same feel. The service was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff managed to remember our names on every occasion. The staff are such a joyous enthusiastic bunch. They seem to love being there!! The dive staff are particularly good- very experienced helpful and excellent teachers. It is possible to do one's open diving certification up there and I could not think of a more fun environment in which to master this skill. There are some fabulous hiking opportunities on the Island and various beaches accessed from these hikes. Finally the spa 'Essentia' is open seven days and the treatments we sampled were excellent. Yoga is offered by the pool and the instructor is lovely- and trained in India. Between the water sports, wonderful healthy food and yoga this could be marketed as a wellness resort... but one could equally relax all day and head for the charming pastries! I recommend this resort very highly. Most of the guests are from Europe and the U.S....but it is a great option for Aussies too!
"Holiday in paradise"
Our first visit was 21 years ago for our honeymoon, with the promise to return, we have just done this, and is was everything and more, emilio and the staff across the board are truely amazing, and the service second to none. The degustation by chef Damien a moment to savour for years to come. There is nothing bad to say, but like all things you cannot rest on your laurels, but we would love to go again and anyone thinking of doing so should book straight away, it was 5 nights of perfection.
"Best Great Barrier Reef Resort there is!"
I visited this resort 15 years ago with my family and brought my husband back to share with him the magic & beauty of Lizard Island! He was not disappointed. The newly renovated facilities were absolutely beautiful. The staff went above & beyond in every way. I am newly pregnant and because of this have some dietary restrictions. The chef prepared my own menu for me everyday that only listed items I could eat. So unbelievable. The snorkeling was incredible, highly recommend the night snorkel! Everyone at the resort loved their job & loved the guests. It's just such a special place. Hope to be back in another 15 years! : )
"Serenity ! "Like Nowhere Else" on The Great "Australian" Barrier Reef."
We had been patiently ticking away the time since we booked this holiday on the absolute jewel in the crown of the Great Barrier Reef in far North Queensland. A one hour flight from Cairns in a 10 seater aeroplane flying over the Reef on a clear sunny day at 9000 feet was truly an amazing experience. On arrival we were ushered into the Resort and welcomed with champagne by David our gloriously funny and witty maitre'd. After lunch we were taken to our Sunset Beach Oceanview Villa plushly fitted out "Hamptons Style" with nothing left to disappoint. Situated on a cliff with panoramic views, especially sunsets we were in another world! No chatter, phones, vehicles or noise other than nature, birdsong and ocean breeze, so it did not take very long to relax into holiday mode. Dinner at Salt Water was a smart casual affair after cocktails at the bar and much mirth from David. The food and wine with great choices was first class with emphasis on local and regional product all served by very knowledgeable and friendly staff. The resort is located in a National Park which is the Island itself, so nature comes first and the local monitor lizards a shy but friendly, the boating, snorkelling, diving facilities, kayaks, sups are at your disposal, but is yo simply want to do nothing but gaze at the superb colours of the Reef, nobody will interrupt you. Its and ideal location to simply kick back, drift, enjoy the food and ambience or get physical with all the amenities available.
"Fabulous Sea life and relaxing atmosphere"
This is the ultimate in relaxing and viewing sea life! The people who work there are impressive, fun and caring! Seems like all they want to do is please you. The snorkeling off the beach is fabulous! During a guided snorkeling experience I felt like we were in a scene from 'Finding Nemo' and I was creating dialogue in my head seeing a traffic jam of colorful fish! Also the food was creative, delicious and beautifully presented. I so enjoyed Dave and David's wine suggestions! We brought our 27 year old daughter who loved the diving! We mostly saw couples.
