Daydream Island $50 million Redevelopment UPDATE
Friday 12th May, 2017
Due to substantial damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Daydream Island Resort and Spa will bring forward its planned refurbishment for 2018 and stay closed for the remainder of 2017 whilst preliminary works commences.
Daydream Island Resort & Spa announced in January that more than $50million will be spent on a significant refurbishment next year which will see major infrastructure upgrades including accommodation refurbishments as well as renovations to existing attractions and installation of new features which will transform Daydream into an upscale 4½ star world-class resort.
It is anticipated that the newly refurbished Daydream Island Resort & Spa will be opening for guests in mid-2018.
The decision for an extended closure will enable Daydream to concentrate fully on restoring Daydream Island back to its spectacular best and regain its spot on the top of the Queensland tourism industry.
Major works will include redevelopment of the Arrivals pavilion, Reception, main Atrium area, Waterfalls restaurant, Lagoons bar, all room types and Mermaids Restaurant. Additionally, the Lovers Cove function area will be expanded and a new Asian-inspired restaurant will be built overlooking Mermaids Beach.
The resort’s conference facilities will be significantly revamped and expanded.
Daydream Island is working with representatives of the State Government and other tourism industry bodies who have offered to assist in developing processes that will allow the re-development of Daydream Island to be fast-tracked, particularly in relation to the various approvals that will be required.
Daydream is looking forward to welcoming many staff back as well as guests old and new to the rebuilt Daydream Island in 2018. Regular updates will be provided on the progress of the refurbishment.
