As the northern most resort on the Great Barrier Reef, Lizard Island is truly secluded from the rest of the world. This is just one wonderful Lizard Island fact that makes it like nowhere else. Add 24 private beaches, and with only 40 suites and villas, that means a private beach for every guest, couple or group. The hour flight from Cairns allows you to take in the true majesty and scale of the reef, and the resort is literally on the reef – no long boat rides are needed to enjoy one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
Lizard Island presents elegant, yet understated Great Barrier Reef accommodation in a variety of rooms and suites.
All of our Lizard Island Resort rooms and suites offer serene luxury and a private location on the Great Barrier Reef in which to enjoy your stay.
The Villa has set a new aspiration for accommodation, privacy and service at Lizard Island. Sleeping up to five guests, The Villa is secluded, sitting atop a ridge and commanding uninterrupted views across Sunset Beach and the Coral Sea.
Perched high above the Coral Sea and set on the point of Sunset Bay, The Pavilion combines complete privacy with a spectacular 270-degree panorama of Anchor Bay, Osprey Island and Sunset Beach.
Set in a broad sweeping arc along Anchor Bay, with easy access to the main lodge and restaurant, Beachfront Suites offer captivating sea views and each has a private pathway leading directly to the beach. Disabled access rooms are available.
Oceanview Villas are set high on Sunset Bay. Providing filtered sea views over Anchor Bay or Sunset Beach, these Villas offer privacy and easy access to a string of secluded beaches. Select Oceanview Villas have their own private plunge pool.
Gardenview Rooms and Suites are located in a tropical garden setting with easy access to the natural beauty of Anchor Bay and the beach.
With 24 beaches to select from, you can select your own picnic basket content the night before and then following day, take your picnic by a private dinghy and motor to a beach of your choice, or have one of our Marine team drop you off and return later to collect you at a predetermined time.
The true luxury of this signature Lizard Island experience is that you will have your chosen beach to yourselves. Private beach picnics are included in your Lizard Island stay.
Lizard Island’s Osprey Restaurant is a firm favorite amongst our island travellers. There are plenty of reasons why the Australian Gourmet Traveller Magazine voted Lizard Island as its favourite Australian resort, but the cuisine is certainly one of them. It’s a good job that this island is available on an all-inclusive basis, because you won’t be able to get enough of what’s on offer! With gourmet meals, fine Australian wines and more cocktails than you can shake a stick at, the gastronomic experiences here are guaranteed to delight.
