This is certainly a flavor of paradise, as well as a perfect tropical honeymoon travel destination, notably for the reason that island isn't going to cater for kids. It has fourty rooms, both on a major beachfront or on a modest headland, as well as the primary building, swimming pool area, gym, health spa, and also watersports centre.

Lizard Island - A High Quality Tropical Resort on Australia's Great Barrier Reef
 Lizard Island situated on the Great Barrier Reef and is the most northerly tropical island directly on the Reef, therefore it would probably be a fantastic selection for a beachfront escape or perhaps a exotic honeymoon travel vacation hotel.

Lizard is situated right on the magnificent Great Barrier Reef, together with the colorful coral reefs and 24 powder pristine sand beach locations. This is certainly a flavor of paradise, as well as a perfect tropical honeymoon travel destination, notably for the reason that island isn't going to cater for kids.

It has fourty rooms, both on a major beachfront or on a modest headland, as well as the primary building, swimming pool area, gym, health spa, and also watersports centre.

Each of the forty cottages on Voyages Lizard Island is undoubtedly exquisite as well as ample, along with either ocean or even ocean front views, and your choices though restricted by the depth of ones bank account because Lizard Island isn’t low-priced at any rate!!

But if this is your own personal choice of exotic honeymoon vacation destination, then splash away and choose The Pavilion!!

The Pavilion is without a doubt high upon the point of Sunset Ridge looking over the Coral Sea, and is entirely exclusive yet a excellent two seventy degree panoramic look at Point Bay, Oscar Island in addition to Sunset Shore.

It features a large terrace using the typical sunloungers plus a private plunge pool, and just the most breathtaking vistas.

Quite a nice touch is the private route leading to one more secluded and extremely quiet area where table and seats are placed to eat out on while enjoying the cool air and the view.

Internally the Pavilion is actually high quality, with in fact a mobile computer system, although quite the key reason why I’m not sure, you eagerly want to leave that sort of thing.

Other alternatives of overnight accommodation are listed below.

The Sunset Point Villas are positioned at the top of Sunset Ridge having views over Anchor Bay or perhaps Sunset Beach , however the view is interfered with by eucalyptus trees and shrubs. The villas are incredibly private having a patio, with chairs along with the hammock. It’s straightforward to get to a variety of beach locations from this point, not to mention the villas understandably are very well decorated.

The Anchor Bay rooms are set across the arc of Anchor Bay, and not faraway from the main hotel. They've got charming sea views and a straight pathway onto the shore. They've got a wide open plan design as well as a big veranda which has a daybed.

Finally the Anchor Bay rooms have a garden setting, and are generally rather small inside, though there are family rooms here

Our experience was that the Sunset Point Villas were quite cozy, and since our booking was total board just about all we had to fork out for ended up being our alcoholic beverages since carbonated drinks were free of charge while dining as well as the beachfront club..

There isn't any doubt that this reef as well as the snorkelling are simply excellent, and right off the beach too!! You'll be able to request to be transported to any beach you wish with a picnic, and collected when you wish., and you can go on arranged snorkelling trips. The colors in the marine life are basically incredible all-around wonderful coral reefs gardens

Other considerations include Gamefishing, or just go sight seeing, or boating, or simply relax in the lavish Teal Health spa and try some pampering.

Your meals are a massively important component of every vacation in particular on your honeymoon vacation and Lizard Island will never let you down.

Dinner at Osprey’s restaurant is a huge pleasure, and in case you happen to be worried this selection changes each day, is certainly fresh, and also imaginative employing nearby produce not to mention the freshest fish and shellfish. The Tuesday smorgasboard happens to be out of this world.

You can pick a private dinner on the beachfront.

You will find a good choice of choices at breakfast and you may select a lunch picnic option delivered to the beach front house.

The staff are generally younger, friendly and efficient, and extremely hard to find fault with.

Even though Lizard Island may be highly-priced, plus the good sized lizards roaming around somewhat off putting at first, it's worth every dime.

It has to be close to being the very best Great Barrier Reef hotel, and I actually could highly recommend it as a an excellent tropical honeymoon travel location. Lizard island is usually accessed via Cairns.
