The demolition and construction of the redeveloped Daydream Island Resort is underway.
The $86 million project is due for completion in August next year, with bookings now open for stays after September 2018.
Daydream Island’s general manager Dawson Tang says, “The interest level is high and we look forward to unveiling final details of the redevelopment in the near future.”
“Once Daydream Island has reopened, there will be at least 270 job opportunities creating a huge boost for the region.”
Daydream’s Director of Sales and Marketing Jayson Heron revealed that bookings are now open for stays from September 2018 onwards.
“We are very pleased to be able to reopen bookings for the resort,” Mr Heron said.
“The interest level is high and we look forward to unveiling final details of the redevelopment in the near future.
“We’re proud to once again become a premier Queensland destination of choice for not only holiday makers but also for weddings and conferences.”
Major works already announced will include redevelopment of the Arrivals pavilion, Reception, main Atrium area, Waterfalls restaurant, Lagoons bar, all room types and Mermaids Restaurant. Additionally, the Lovers Cove function area will be expanded and a new Asian-inspired restaurant will be built.
The resort’s conference facilities will also be significantly revamped and expanded.
