Daydream Island Resort and Living Reef is the first island in the Whitsundays region to open back up to intrastate and interstate travellers following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Daydream Island Resort Chief Operating Officer, Dilip Madhok, said “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.”

The resort will continue to implement their COVID Safe Health Management Plan, in line with the Queensland Government regulations, and 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.
