LIZARD ISLAND- Great Barrier Reef, Australia
There are many places in the world that claim to be remote, but Lizard Lodge in our eyes pretty much wins the blissful seclusion award from us. It’s in its own little world, your own personal island retreat pleasantly perched right on the Great Barrier Reef… 40 villas and suites amongst 24 powdery white beaches. Beautiful, wild, natural, and reserved for the fortunate few that decide to take the journey.

Arrive and you’ll wonder why it took so long for you to decide to go, for it provides a window to another world under the sea. It is your island here, effectively…a place to snorkel through brilliant coral reefs, deep-sea fish for marlin, or explore one of the world’s famous dive sites also known as the Cod Hole, where curious Potato Cod swim right up to inspect you with great interest. A place to enjoy secluded picnics on private beaches, fabulously indulgent spa treatments, and incredible cuisine all in casually barefoot-elegant style.

Accommodations are equally as fabulous- opt from villas, suites or even your own pavilion- all are spectacular for watching the sunset on a day bed on the balcony overlooking the water. It’s a beautiful sense of calm not easily found elsewhere, and a beautiful island world all its own. We’d list their accolades, but that would require pages and pages…so take our word for it (and everyone else), it’s worth the trip. http://www.lizardisland.com.au/
