Lizard Island

As the northernmost resort on the Great Barrier Reef, Lizard Island is truly secluded from the rest of the world. With 24 private beaches and only 40 suites and villas onsite, that means a private beach for every guest, couple, or group.

Enjoy unparalleled access to the Great Barrier Reef, just steps from the beach—no long boat rides required! You can snorkel, dive, or view the reef from a glass-bottomed kayak. You can even take out your own private dinghy for the day to explore hidden beaches and snorkeling spots with no one else around.

The resort itself offers exquisite design that perfectly blends with the natural beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. Lizard Island Resort offers a range of luxury accommodations, from garden view rooms surrounded by tropical plants to a breathtaking villa offering exquisite views of the colorful lagoon below. Indulge in gourmet meals, included in your room rate, as well as a fine selection of wine and spirits. The Essentia Day Spa offers indulgent treatments inspired by your one-of-a-kind surroundings.
