Lizard Island, a secluded Great Barrier Reef island resort located 240km north of Cairns and 27km off the coast of North Queensland, Australia, will re-open on 1 March 2015 after 12 months of extensive refurbishment and rebuilding following the impact of Cyclone Ita.

As part of the rebuilding, a new stand-alone suite called The Villa has been created. Featuring two bedrooms both with en-suites - the master with a luxury bath, a butlers kitchen, plunge pool and wrap around deck, this 95 square metre villa sits atop a ridge offering uninterrupted views across Sunset Beach and the Coral Sea.

 Lizard Islands most coveted suite was previously The Pavilion. With its private gazebo and plunge pool, The Pavilion will now be expanded to include a separate lounge room from which guests can enjoy the panoramic views over the Coral Sea.

Additionally, a selection of the Sunset Point Villas will have the added luxury of private plunge pools.

The Anchor Bay Rooms located right on the beachfront and Garden Rooms have all been retained.

General Manager, Amanda Silk, said, I am really excited to be returning to Lizard Island. Having been General Manager here some years back, I have a really strong commitment to making sure this refurbishment provides the unique Lizard Island experience that our guests have come to know and respect. I am also relishing the chance to restore Lizard Island to its rightful position as one of the leading resorts of the world.

OPV Architects and Hecker Guthrie were chosen to re-design the interiors. Using the stunning views from each room as the hero for their design, they have created interiors which naturally integrate with the surrounding environment. The new colour palette combines neutral tones with highlights of colours from the Reef including coral, blue and gold.

This design theme is continued into the lounge and restaurant area where guests will once again be able to enjoy the Australian gourmet cuisine and superb wine list for which Lizard Island is known. A dedicated wine and cheese room has been added and the kitchen will now be open plan with opportunities to interact with the Executive Chef and team.

The Islands spa has been relocated to provide additional space to enjoy the many treatments on offer and now includes a dedicated manicure and pedicure room. French based, La Biosthetique products have been chosen to complement the treatments.
