Daydream Island, located in the Whitsunday Islands, has announced it will reopen with a soft launch on 10 April 2019.

The reopening comes after an extensive two-year redevelopment, following Cyclone Debbie which caused significant damage to the island in early 2017.

A new brand identity has been designed in conjunction with global brand agency Interbrand, including a new logo.

Meanwhile, the resort itself has undergone a significant renovation of its 277 rooms and suites, dining concepts and public spaces.

Director of sales and marketing Jayson Heron said the rebrand was an important step for the island’s transformation.

“The island has undergone a huge journey from the devastation caused in 2017 by Cyclone Debbie and we wanted the new brand to signal the evolution of the island,” he said.

“The new brand gives a nod the island’s heritage whilst also looking to the future.”

Daydream Island recently appointed Bradley Martin as executive chef and Adrian Tyler as food and beverage manager.

The pair will lead the resort’s three restaurants: Graze Interactive Dining, Infinity and Inkstone Kitchen and Bar and three bars: Barefoot Bar, Tonic and Silica.

The island will also offer a revitalised pool area with views across the Great Barrier Reef and complemented by a poolside bar and new burger concept.

Daydream Island is currently taking bookings from 10 April 2019 onwards.
