Australia’s most loved island resort, Daydream Island will welcome guests from 10th April 2019, unveiling the new look, premium resort secluded in the heart of the Whitsundays.

The resort will launch new signature dining concepts, relaxed bars and waterfront suites, as well as bringing back the iconic Living Reef with an underwater observatory.

Daydream Island Resort General Manager, Dawson Tang said, “We wanted the new Daydream Island Resort to reflect the beauty of its surroundings through the architecture, design and dining direction. We have embraced the favourite memories of our guests by reinstating the Living Reef, the Outdoor Cinema and an ode to the mermaids.”

The resort will have 277 contemporary suites and rooms for guests to relax in after a day in the sun, with garden, pool and ocean view rooms providing the perfect retreat. Three signature restaurants and three new bars will each be defined by their own distinct design and flavour. Led by Bradley Martin, Executive Chef and Adrian Tyler, Food and Beverage Manager, seasonal local produce will showcase the best of the region at each restaurant.

Infinity will be the resort’s premium dining offering with an Asian fusion menu, open for lunch and dinner with expansive views over the Whitsundays. It also has a private Teppanyaki Suite offering diners an unforgettable dining experience.

Graze Interactive Dining will welcome the outdoors in with draping greenery and floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the Living Reef. It will be an interactive marketplace with live cooking stations and diverse dining options.

Inkstone Kitchen and Bar will focus on modern Australian cuisine with local produce and Australian native flavours at the heart of the menu.

The island will offer a revitalised pool landscape that will wind through the tropical gardens across the resort allowing guests to swim and enjoy unparalled views across the Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef. The swimming hub will be complemented by poolside Barefoot Bar, inclusive of a new dining concept serving gourmet burgers, sliders, pork ribs and chicken wings with fresh smoothies, milkshakes, wine, beer and tropical cocktails.

The Living Reef, will be making its return to the island in an even bigger and better way, further cementing its eco-friendly and educational focus. The free form coral lagoon will wrap 200m around the central building and hold over 1.5 million litres of water. Guests will be able to join the team of marine biologists who live on the island and feed baby stingrays who live amongst over 100 species of marine fish, coral and invertebrates such as starfish, sea cucumbers and crabs. A new underwater observatory will also allow guests to view 4 metres below the water’s surface to watch the marine life in action. Kids will have the chance to become eco-warriors at Kids Club as they explore and learn about the Living Reef while playing and feeding the animals who call it home, amongst a range of other activities around the island.

The resort will have a host of activities for guests to experience such as snorkeling adventures, helicopter tours exploring the island & surrounding Great Barrier Reef Marine Park as well as sailboat and jetski hire. The resort will also feature an expansive pool, coral beaches, outdoor cinema, gym facilities and unlimited access to non-motorised water activities. An exclusive adult’s only area will cater to those in search of a sanctuary and a little slice of peace and quiet.

Daydream Island Resort will become a sought after destination for major events and weddings, with capacity for the island to be completely booked for private events. Special events from cocktail parties to gala dinners can be catered for across a large range of indoor and outdoor event locations. Guests visiting the island for conferences will have access to the latest technology audio visual equipment across three dedicated conference rooms.

Daydream Island is currently taking bookings from 10th April, 2019 onwards, to book please contact the reservations team at reservations@daydreamisland.com or visit daydreamisland.com.

The view is sensational! Such a relaxing property. Great size/space. We spent our whole stay watching boats go past, spotting turtles and soaking up the sun with a cold beverage.

Amazing Whitsunday Views @ High Tide
It’s an amazing house in a great location. It’s a little out of Airlie central, but that kind of makes it if you have a good group who don’t expect or want to go out for every meal (but even still it’s a short cab ride in to town)

Ursula
Executive Whitsunday Penthouse @ 40 Reflections
This was our last stop on our honeymoon and it was absolutely stunning! We did not leave the property for two whole days (enjoyed the pool table, swimming and the beautiful views). It was about a 4 minute drive to Airlie beach (a $10 cab fare). The seafood platter at Fish D’vine was exceptional and the pasta/pizza at Lamarina was beautiful (a 5 minute walk from the main esplanade- quiet, romantic and peaceful). Would love to come back here!!!!! A memorable home

Executive living with amazing marina views
Highly recommended, great location beautiful apartment. Only thing to be aware of is taxis are hard to get at the airport, shuttle bus is recommended. But key to apartment requires a taxi to collect and drop off again as it is not located onsite.

Executive Whitsunday Penthouse @ 40 Reflections
Absolutely loved our stay here! Perfect size for a family or a small group of friends for a r&r getaway. The views are magnificent. The Penthouse is central to everything. 2min in a car to Woolies or Main St. Plenty of space and the rooftop deck with private pool, lounge and pool table, is the cherry on top! Have already saved this property and it will be our go-to for all our future Whitsunday island getaways!
