A massive refurbishment project on Lizard Island Resort is finally complete after the area’s destruction in 2014 by cyclones Ita and Nathan.
The project took $45 million and 16 months to return the property, off Cape York in far north Queensland, to full operation. With the opening of the Marlin Bar, the final stage of the renovation is complete.
The 40 villa resort is enjoyed for its water sport activities, including diving trips to the nearby Cod Hole, and for its serene and secluded location on the Great Barrier Reef.
Greg Ware, executive director of Australian Parks and Resorts at Delaware North Companies, which owns the resort, praised the staff and partners that had worked hard to get it back in operation.
“The tireless efforts of our staff and partners over the past 16 months sees us in a really solid and exciting position to reestablish Lizard Island as a world leader in luxurious resort accommodation,” he said.
Although the majority of the property has been accessible to guests since June 5, this final launch marks the end of the recovery project.
