Daydream Island has welcomed its first guests back to the resort since it was devastated by a cyclone a few years back. Located in the heart of the Whitsundays, Daydream Island spans 1km long with coral and sand beaches lined by palm trees, a tropical rainforest and its very own Living Reef bursting with marine life.

Evoking a sense of paradise, the resort has been transformed with new restaurants and bars, expansive suites looking out to the Whitsundays and an idyllic pool designed for that Insta-worthy photo.

Public spaces such as the Atrium have been created to be welcoming with the outdoors sprawling in, through colonial shutters, a vibrant green wall and an alfresco area looking into the Living Reef.

The resort features 277 contemporary rooms and suites with views of either the tropical gardens, pool or out to the ocean.

Living Reef
The Living Reef is a free form coral lagoon spanning 200 metres throughout the resort and holds over 1.5 million litres of fresh water and is home to hundreds of marine fish, coral, stingrays and sharks.

Led by a team of marine biologists and Head Marine Biologist and TEQ Ambassador, Johnny Gaskell, the Living Reef gives Daydream Island an authentic connection to the Great Barrier Reef and its marine life.

From snorkelling adventures, helicopter tours exploring the island & surrounding Great Barrier Reef as well as sailboat and jetski hire, there’s no shortage of things to do.

The island pool has an unparalleled view across the Whitsundays, coral beaches, gym facilities, unlimited access to non-motorised water activities and will launch the refurbished Outdoor Cinema in June – overlooking Sunset Beach. An exclusive adult’s only area will cater to those in search of a sanctuary and a little slice of peace and quiet.
