The Aussie resort redefining resort dining

Start getting excited, folks, because the countdown to Daydream Island’s reopening is on!

Following two-years and $100 million worth of extensive redevelopment, the 4.5-star premium destination resort is ready and raring to welcome guests and show off its stylish new digs.

When your client (or yourself, we don’t judge) isn’t relaxing in one of the resorts refurbished rooms, lounging by the revitalised pool, taking in the sights of the Islands iconic Living Reef or just luxuriating in the island lifestyle, they’ll want to be checking out the resorts new signature dining offerings.

The redevelopment will see the unveiling of three mouthwatering new restaurants and three new bars each distinct in their flavours and vibes.

With Keith Le Fevre at the helm as executive chef, the resort seeks to highlight local flavours and ingredients and make use of local producers.

Here’s a rundown of Daydream Island’s innovative and diverse food and beverage offering:
