The hugely popular Great Barrier Reef resort closed in 2017 after it sustained severe damage in Cyclone Debbie.

Two years of renovations have meant that Daydream Island is now bigger and better than ever before.

“The re-opening of Daydream Island is a huge milestone after the devastation caused by Cyclone Debbie,” Jayson Heron, Daydream Island’s director of sales and marketing says.

“It will have been a two-year journey and we are excited to welcome our loyal regulars and new guests to the island to experience the new premium offering.”

Daydream Island Resort will have three restaurants: Graze Interactive Dining, Infinity and Inkstone Kitchen and Bar.

No matter which restaurant you choose – expect seasonal fresh local produce. Daydream has hired executive chef, Bradley Martin, formerly of Taumeasina Island Resort in Samoa to lead the resort’s premium dining destinations.

Through simple, yet creative menus Mr Martin plans to showcase local produce and flavours.

“I have been meeting local farmers and producers in the Whitsundays region and am excited by the quality of food that surrounds us,” he says.

“My food is prepared with love and respect and my menus will show this through simple yet modern dishes.”

Graze Interactive Dining, off the main lobby, will serve a modern buffet for breakfast and dinner. It looks and feels like paradise. In keeping with the tropical surrounds, huge baskets of plants are scattered across the rooftop, dangling ferns above diners. Huge glass windows overlook the pool.

The first-floor Infinity restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and has expansive views over the Whitsundays. Infinity has a private Teppanyaki Suite for an unforgettable dining experience.

Inkstone Kitchen and Bar will showcase modern Australia dishes. If you book a deluxe room or suite – this is your breakfast spot. All other guests can enter for lunch and dinner.

Daydream Island now has three bars – Barefoot Bar, Tonic and Silica – where guests can quench their thirst.
