TRAVELLERS heading to the Whitsundays can add one more destination to their must-visit list when Daydream Island officially reopens its doors to the public in early 2019.

The resort, which closed in March 2017 following devastating damage by Tropical Cyclone Debbie, has undergone a $100m redevelopment and is set to once again wow guests with its 4.5 star rating, 277 refurbished modern rooms and interconnecting suites designed for families and groups.

In addition to the updated accommodation, the island has also expanded its food and beverage offering, including three new restaurants: Graze Interactive Dining, Infinity, and Inkstone Kitchen and Bar. A fourth restaurant, Asian Fusion, is also planned for the resort, headed up by executive chef Bradley Martin.

Other updated amenities include three new bars, the Barefoot Bar, Tonic, and Silica, as well as a revitalised pool landscape offering sweeping views over the Whitsundays. A poolside bar and burger concept is also planned for inclusion to offer guests a relaxed dining experience.

Daydream’s popular free-form coral lagoon Living Reef will also make its return when the resort reopens, the impressive water feature wrapping 200m around the main building and providing unique opportunities for guests to join local marine biologists in feeding the resident baby stingrays that swim among the fish and coral.
