Daydream Island resort reopens in the Great Barrier Reef

Daydream Island resort in the Whitsunday Islands offshore of Queensland Australia has reopened after over $72 million of investments.

In 2017, Category 4 Cyclone Debbie tore through Queensland and the Whitsunday Islands closing the resort and causing over $3.5 billion of damage as well as fourteen deaths to the area.

The property first opened to guests in 1939 as the Daydream Island Resort. As of April 15, the hotel has officially reopened with a brand-new look and amenities, following eighteen months of renovations.

It features new restaurants and bars, expansive suites looking out over the Whitsundays and three new outdoor pools-one on the beachfront, one infinity pool, one off the central lagoon. It also boasts 277 guest rooms and suites.
