Daydream Island Resort and Living Reef, is the first island in region to welcome back guests ahead of Queensland borders re-opening

Australia’s iconic resort, reef and wildlife destination, Daydream Island will begin to welcome guests back to the island on July 1, 2020 ahead of the Queensland borders re-opening. As the first island in the region to open back up to intrastate and interstate travellers, this marks an exciting moment for Australian tourism following the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Come July 10, Daydream Island Resort and Living Reef is looking forward to welcoming guests from beyond the Queensland border; both new and returning, to experience all that the island has to offer. “It is really exciting to see such a big focus on domestic tourism, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it, inviting back travellers from all over the country”, Chief Operating Officer, Dilip Madhok says.
 
With its doors re-opening, Daydream Island Resort and Living Reef will continue to implement their COVID Safe Health Management Plan, in line with the Queensland Government regulations. The resort is the first in the Whitsundays to officially be accredited as a COVID CLEAN resort; meaning they have developed and initiated business practices specifically aimed to maintain high hygiene standards and stop the spread of COVID-19. 

Guest health and safety remain front of mind and additional measures will be taken in line with the certification, including individual guest amenity cleaning kits and personal-use sanitizer/wipes for guests. There will also be a focus on reduced contact, with touchless transactions and digitisation throughout the resort including contactless check in and check out and QR code activated menus.    

To celebrate the re-opening, Daydream Island Resort and Living Reef will be offering a ‘Good to Go’ package for guests in need of a getaway and some well-deserved relaxation in the sunshine. The package includes 25% off their Best Flexible Room Rate, full buffet breakfast in Graze Restaurant each morning, free WiFi access and complimentary use of all non-motorised water sport and resort recreational activities.
