Work begins on transformation of Daydream Island Resort and Spa
October 17, 2017

The demolition program at Daydream Island Resort and Spa in the Whitsundays has started ahead of its $65 million redevelopment.

Aiming to reopen in October 2018 works already announced 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. The resort’s conference facilities will also be significantly revamped and expanded.

Daydream’s Director of Sales and Marketing Jayson Heron says that bookings have reopened from today for stays from October 2018 onwards, with a new sales and marketing office opening in Sydney.

Heron stated “the interest level is high and we look forward to unveiling final details of the redevelopment in the near future.”
