Travel + Leisure USA votes Lizard Island Top Hotel in Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific


For the fourth time, readers of Travel + Leisure magazine in the USA have voted Lizard Island as the Top Hotel in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. In addition to this award, Lizard Island is ranked at No. 24 on the Top 100 Hotels Overall list.

Travel + Leisure readers are among the most sophisticated, passionate and discerning travellers in the world. The readers are required to rate the properties on five characteristics: rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food, and value.

Voyages' Executive General Manager Sales and Marketing Anna Guillan says that, "Lizard Island epitomises the best Australia has to offer. 24 powdery-white beaches, diving on the Great Barrier Reef and big game fishing adventures. Add the sheer class of a world class resort with a barefoot luxury feel and you have a truly unique place."
