Relax and unwind on this tropical island paradise
Daydream Island Resort & Living Reef is ideally located in the heart of Queensland’s Whitsundays Islands and the gateway to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. Following an extensive $140 million redevelopment in 2018-2019, our stylish and tranquil island resort offers a range of refurbished spacious and modern rooms and suites with stunning views overlooking the pool and garden landscapes or with ocean views.
Daydream Island is home to three restaurants; Graze – a modern buffet restaurant complete with live cooking stations and a range of international cuisines, Infinity – a premium Asian Fusion dining experience with expansive views of the Whitsunday Islands, and Inkstone Kitchen & Bar – inspired Modern Australian restaurant offering the best in steak and seafood. While each restaurant has its own unique cuisine and style, they all share the relaxed dining atmosphere synonymous with our island.
Along with the three restaurants there are also three bars across the island; Tonic Bar – spanning indoors from the Atrium out towards Living Reef, Tonic Bar is the island’s speciality Gin Bar offering a great place to meet or relax and enjoy the atmosphere, Barefoot Bar – centrally located amongst the lush gardens by the pool landscape. With our expanded food and beverage oulets we offer our guests a plethora of options catering to their every need.
Guests can dive into a snorkelling adventure at any time of the day or explore the island & surrounding Great Barrier Reef Marine Park by helicopter, sailboat or jet ski. Daydream Island Resort has activities for all ages with swimming pools, coral beaches, rainforest walk, fully equipped gym facilities and unlimited access to non-motorised water activities including kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and sailing. Our Tour Desk can arrange for half-day or full day tours of the Great Barrier Reef, the famous Whitehaven Beach and other nearby attractrions.
Daydream island offers a revitalised pool landscape that sweeps through the tropical gardens across the resort allowing guests to swim and enjoy unparalleled views across the Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef. The swimming hub is complemented by the 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 is the main centrepiece of the island which is a unique free form coral lagoon wrapping 200m around the central building and holding over 1.5 million litres of water. The Living Reef is home to over 100 species of marine fish, over 80 species of coral and a variety of invertebrates such as starfish, sea cucumbers and crabs.
Guests will have the option to join our team of resident marine biologists taking part in a guided fish feed tours, hand feeding baby stingrays or taking part with guided snorkelling adventures within the living reef.
Our new underwater observatory offers a unique aspect of the Living Reef which is 4 metres below the water’s surface where you can watch the marine life in action or take memorable photos of family and friends snorkelling.
The Living Reef further cements Daydream Island’s commitment as being eco-friendly whilst providing a strong educational program on the protection and conservation of the area’s native coral and marine life.
The Kid’s Club is a haven for children with an exciting range of activities on offer each day. Kids will have the chance to become eco-warriors at our Kids Club as they explore and learn about the Living Reef while playing and feeding the animals who call it home.
