Domestic and international travellers ‘Daydream-ing’ for an island getaway will be able to do so in less than a year if the island’s redevelopment plans roll out as scheduled.

Demolition of the popular resort and spa commenced this week, a few weeks ahead of the $65 million development, which is scheduled to begin next month.

Part of the multi-million dollar makeover will include rebuilding areas damaged in March this year by Cyclone Debbie, while other projects will involve redeveloping the Arrivals pavilion, Reception, main Atrium area, Waterfalls restaurant, Lagoons bar, all room types and Mermaids Restaurant.

Business and conference travellers can also expect to see an expanded Lovers Cover function area, significantly revamped and expanded facilities as well as a new Asian-inspired restaurant.

Daydream’s Director of Sales and Marketing Jayson Heron said travellers will be able to experience the new and improved resort from October 2018 and can secure their stay by booking from today.

“We are very pleased to be able to reopen bookings for the resort.”
