Just a place of absolute paradise. The rooms are stunning with everything you could want. The terrace area with its day bed and decking and a few short steps to the beach really was beautiful. The beach club staff were so helpful and catered to your every need. All of the resort staff were brilliant and we couldn't have been...

This resort is superb in every respect. The accommodations are simple, comfortable and high end. The food was great at every meal and handled special diet needs without fuss. The proximity to the Great Barrier Reef made diving easy, even for the novice. A light paddle to a giant clam bed - how many places could offer this in such...

Dear BinWales, Thank you for the feedback on your recent visit to Lizard Island. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the resort's facilities and that you made the best of your time with us. The remoteness, not only of the island but of the northern point of Queensland poses certain difficulties in terms of connectivity, however Wi-Fi is one of...

Lizard island is an incredible spot- and its rare to find a place that you can snorkel off the beach and see so much at many different spots. The fact you can even take your own private boat to a private beach and snorkel and have a picnic lunch is amazing, our room was great but check them out as...

Dear leaffangolafsgo, Snorkelling straight off the beach onto the Great Barrier Reef and secluded picnic lunches on a private beach are some of the experiences that make Lizard Island unique, and it's great to see that you enjoyed as many of them as you could during your stay. Whilst there are several room types available, ranging from Gardenview rooms through...

It is getting increasingly difficult to find accessible unspoiled parts of the globe but this is certainly one. Truly wild and you can walk across it readily. We arrived by boat and left from the "airfield" in a Cessna Caravan. The low level (to avoid post diving decompression issues) flight back to Cairns was truly beautiful.

Dear Andrew N, Lizard Island really is an unspoilt paradise, definitely worth exploring. With so many things to see and do, including the beautiful scenic flights to and from, the island is still the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the best that nature has to offer. I hope you've enjoyed your dives around the beautiful Great barrier Reef....

Unbelievably quiet. Hardly anyone there. Beaches all to ourselves. Staff amazing. Catered for my allergies. This place is heaven on earth. Everything is included in the price. Staff can drive you anywhere any time you like.
