Australia’s famous Daydream Island Resort and Spa has announced it will undergo a 50-million-dollar extensive redevelopment project, which will see significant upgrades throughout the popular Whitsundays resort.
From the first week of February this year, projects on the South End of the island will commence, meaning Fish Bowl bistro, Boat House Bakery and Ginger’s Hut will be closed with alternative dining provided. Access to other South End facilities including swimming pools, the outdoor cinema, motorised watersports and the Endeavour Wedding Chapel will not be affected.
The resort will then close in early 2018 for a period of time to ensure renovations can be carried out in the shortest time possible and with minimal disruptions.
“With well-over 100,000 guests staying on Daydream Island each year, we recognise the need to continuously improve our product and we will be improving the guest experience based on recent feedback right up until the redevelopment,” Daydream Island Resort and Spa general manager Dawson Tang says.
Upgrades will include accommodation refurbishments as well as renovations and expansions to existing attractions, dining venues and conference facilities, and installation of new features, which will transform Daydream Island into an upscale 4.5-star world-class resort.
One of Daydream Island’s signature attractions, the Living Reef lagoons, will also be upgraded and receive some brand new features which will enhance interaction with guests.
Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, Daydream Island Resort and Spa offers 296 beautifully appointed rooms, comprehensive facilities such as the Rejuvenation Spa and Living Reef lagoon, a wide variety of activities, sparkling bays and secluded beaches, which all combine to provide a superior tropical island experience.
“As Australia’s Famous Reef Island we will continue to deliver a unique connection through our Whitsunday location and proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, our fringing coral reef and the Living Reef on-island experience.”
