The works will see the resort closing in early 2018 for a period of time to ensure renovations can occur in the shortest possible time and with minimal disruptions.
Daydream Island Resort and Spa general manager, Dawson Tang, said the major redevelopment would see accommodation refurbishments as well as renovations to existing attractions and installation of new features, which will transform Daydream into an upscale 4.5- star resort.
Major works will include redevelopment of the arrivals pavilion, reception, main atrium area, Waterfalls restaurant, Lagoons bar, all room types and Mermaids Restaurant. The Lovers Cove function area will be expanded and a new Asian inspired restaurant will be built.
One of Daydream Island’s signature attractions, the Living Reef lagoons, will also be upgraded and receive some brand new features which will enhance interaction with guests.
The resort’s conference facilities will be significantly revamped and expanded.
To ensure minimal disruption to guests, some strategic projects will be implemented in 2017 on the south end of the island. Fish Bowl bistro, Boat House Bakery and Ginger’s Hut will be closed for a period from the first week in February this year. Alternative food and dining facilities will be provided. Access to south end facilities including swimming pools, the outdoor cinema, motorised watersports and the Endeavour Wedding Chapel will not be affected.
