Great Barrier Reef Hotels

Why not go to the Great Barrier Reef this year, find a great Barrier Reef Hotel, and have a Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour?

As one of the many thousands of visitors to Australia you are inevitably drawn to the Great Barrier Reef without necessarily really knowing what it is, where it is, and where is the best Barrier Reef Hotel to take the best advantage of it. So think on this:

Why not go to the Great Barrier Reef this year, find a great Barrier Reef Hotel, and have a Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour?

As one of the many thousands of visitors to Australia you are inevitably drawn to the Great Barrier Reef without necessarily really knowing what it is, where it is, and where is the best Barrier Reef Hotel to take the best advantage of it. So think on this:

The Great Barrier Reef off the east coast of Australia is the only living organic thing visible from Space. The Great Barrier Reef, off the east coast of Australia, is one of the wonders of the natural world - it is the world's largest coral reef ecosystem.

The reef is scattered with beautiful islands and idyllic coral cays and covers more than 300,000 square kilometres. The Great Barrier Reef system consists of more than 3000 reefs which range in size from 1 hectare to over 10,000 hectares in area. There are more than 600 islands of the Great Barrier Reef, some of which contain great hotels for you to stay at.

The real question is what Great Barrier Reef Hotel would suit you the best?

The Top 10 Rated Hotels in a recent poll were as follows:

1. South Long Island Nature Lodge, Whitsunday Island, Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef
2. Voyages Wilson Island, Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef
3. Lizard Island Resort, Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef
4. Beach Club Resort, Hamilton Island, Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef
5. Voyages Heron Island Resort, Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef
6. Voyages Bedarra Island Resort, Bedarra Island, Great Barrier Reef
7. Voyages Dunk Island, Dunk Island, Great Barrier Reef
8. Peppers Palm Bay, Long Island, Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef
9. Hayman Island Resort, Hayman Island, Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef
10. Kingfisher Bay Resort, Fraser Island, Great Barrier Reef

There are all types of accommodation at all prices, with activities to match the budgets for your Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour. They range from very sophisticated resorts like Hayman Island and the beach club on Hamilton Island, a secluded adult hideaway at Peppers Palm Bay.
Then you can go to family orientated island getaways like Hamilton Island, South Molle Island, and Daydream Island.. Finally you have Long Island a budget party island.

You must make extensive enquiries about each hotel, because there are many more than can be mentioned here.

Both Whitsunday’s Great Barrier Reef islands and Queensland's Great Barrier Reef islands are ideally suited for honeymooners, families, divers, beachcombers or nature lovers - in fact anyone looking for an idyllic, exotic, sun kissed and pristine holiday destination that is a rare escape from a stressful world.

If diving or fishing are more your thing for your Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour then Heron, Wilson, Lizard or Lady Elliot are the places to go.
Here we have nature at its best with turtle hatching, bird rookeries and whale watching, (all seasonal) Lady Elliot Island is an ecological wonderland.

If you are looking for total and complete luxury, then Hayman, Green Island, Orpheus, Bedarra, Peppers Palm Bay and Lizard are top of the list
If it’s a family type Holiday, Vacation & Tour then the prices and facilities of South Molle Island, Dunk, Hamilton, Hayman, Daydream or Fitzroy make perfect sense for that tropical family holiday.

If you are looking for something in between, then Hamilton Island, South Molle Island, Daydream Island Resort & Spa, or Long Island Resort, are worth investigating.

Other Island resorts closer to Queensland's vibrant capital, Brisbane, are also world famous and easily accessible by vehicle and ferry, with all resorts operating their own transfer services.
The superb Kingfisher Bay Resort on World Heritage Fraser Island, and the health and activity focussed first class Couran Cove Island Resort on South Stradbroke Island off the coast from the Gold Coast should both be checked out.

I hope this has given you something to think about in terms of a suitable Great Barrier Reef Hotel for your next Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour

Lizard Island Is A Fantastic Great Barrier Reef Hotel

Lizard Island is a Great Barrier Reef Hotel and is the most northerly island on the Reef, and it would be a great choice for a beach Holiday, Vacation & Tour or a tropical honeymoon Holiday, Vacation & Tour resort.

Lizard is located right on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, with its colourful coral reefs and 24 powder white sand beaches. This really is a taste of paradise, and the ideal tropical honeymoon Holiday, Vacation & Tour resort, especially as the island does not cater for children.

Lizard Island is a Great Barrier Reef Hotel and is the most northerly island on the Reef, and it would be a great choice for a beach Holiday, Vacation & Tour or a tropical honeymoon Holiday, Vacation & Tour resort.

Lizard is located right on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, with its colourful coral reefs and 24 powder white sand beaches. This really is a taste of paradise, and the ideal tropical honeymoon Holiday, Vacation & Tour resort, especially as the island does not cater for children.

It has forty rooms, either on the main beach or on a small headland, plus the main building, pool, gym, spa, and watersports centre.

Each of the 40 villas on Voyages Lizard Island is elegant and spacious, with either ocean or beach views, and your choices whilst limited by the depth of your pocket because Lizard Island isn’t cheap anyway!!

If however this is your choice of tropical honeymoon Holiday, Vacation & Tour resort, then splash out and book The Pavilion!!

The Pavilion is high on the point of Sunset Ridge overlooking the Coral Sea, and is totally private yet a wonderful 270 degree panoramic view of Anchor Bay, Oscar Island and Sunset Beach.

It has a huge veranda with the usual sunloungers and a private plunge pool, and just the most stunning views.

A really nice touch is a private path leading to another private and very secluded area where table and chairs are placed to eat out on whilst enjoying the cooling breeze and the view.

Internally the Pavilion is luxurious, with even a laptop computer, though quite why I’m not sure, you really want to get away from that sort of thing.

The other choices of accommodation are as follows.

The Sunset Point Villas are set high on Sunset Ridge with views over Anchor Bay or Sunset Beach , though the view is interfered with by eucalyptus trees. The villas are very private with a veranda, with chairs and a hammock. It’s easy to get to a number of beaches from here, and the villas as you would expect are well furnished.

The Anchor Bay suites are set along the arc of Anchor Bay, and not far from the main lodge. They have lovely sea views and a direct pathway onto the beach. They have an open plan design and a large veranda with a daybed.

Lastly the Anchor Bay rooms have a garden setting, and are relatively small inside, but there are family rooms here

Our experience was that the Sunset Point Villas were very comfortable, and as our booking was full board all we had to pay for was our alcohol as soft drinks were complimentary at dinner and at the beach club..

There is no doubt that the reef and the snorkelling are just terrific, and right off the beach too!! You can ask to be taken to any beach you like with a picnic, and collected when you want., and you can go on organised snorkelling trips. The colours of the fish are simply incredible around lovely coral gardens

Other activities include Gamefishing, or you can just go exploring, or sailing, or just relax at the luxurious Azure Spa and try some pampering.

Food is a hugely important part of any Holiday, Vacation & Tour especially on a honeymoon and Lizard Island will not disappoint.

Dining at Osprey’s restaurant is a huge pleasure, and in case you are concerned the menu changes every day, is fresh, and very creative using local produce and of course the freshest seafood. The Thursday buffet is out of this world.

You can opt for a private dinner on the beach.

There is a good range of choices at breakfast and you can opt for a lunchtime picnic option delivered to the beach house.

The staff are young, friendly and efficient, and very difficult to find fault with.

Whilst Lizard Island may be expensive, and the large lizards wandering around a little off putting at first, it is worth every cent.

It must be close to being the top Great Barrier Reef hotel, and I would certainly recommend it as a great tropical honeymoon Holiday, Vacation & Tour resort

Safety On A Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour

A Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour will almost always include Great Barrier Reef Snorkelling, Great Barrier reef diving, or at least wading around in shallow water, or walking on coral cays.

A Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour will almost always include Great Barrier Reef Snorkelling, Great Barrier reef diving, or at least wading around in shallow water, or walking on coral cays.

You need to be aware that The Great Barrier Reef has several very dangerous marine animals, so you need to be on your guard all the time you are walking on coral, in shallow water, snorkelling or diving.

The most common dangerous animals of the Great Barrier Reef includes jellyfish, several species of fish, sea snakes, octopus, and even certain shellfish that can potentially be fatal to humans.

In fairness if you take the right precautions, and you know what to look out for, you can reduce the danger, and still enjoy the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef on your Great Barrier Reef trip.

The list of dangerous marine animals plus a brief description follows.

Box Jelly Fish.

This is one of the most dangerous creatures on the reef, and can be found swimming close to the shore from November through to March.

It gets its name from the shape of its body, which is a box shaped bell with clusters of tentacles extending from each corner, which can reach up to 3 metres in length. They are nearly invisible because they are so transparent, and the strongest advice is if you want to swim off a beach in the summer months, then swim inside the netted areas.

Their sting is agonising, however a single sting is bearable, but the problems tend to arise from panic, causing entanglement with the tentacles and a lot more stings. Enough venom can kill an adult, or drowning due to the panic. If the tentacles are stuck on a victim then they can be neutralised by pouring vinegar on them

Irukandji Jellyfish

This is very small, being only a few centimetres in diameter, and it is to be found at the northern end of The Great Barrier Reef. They tend to be found in the deeper waters of the reef, but can be swept inshore. Divers and snorkelers are most at risk, and they usually appear in the summer months November to March.

The sting goes unnoticed for possibly as long as half an hour, but then the venom begins to take hold, and it can be strong enough to hospitalise adults. Although it’s small it’s very dangerous, because you won’t see it unless you are specifically looking.

Blue Ringed Octopus

It is the only dangerous octopus in the world, and is the size of a golf ball, and looks cute. The Blue Ringed Octopus has a beak that can penetrate a wet suit and poison that can kill an adult in minutes, and there is no known antidote.

It lives in rock pools and coral, and is very dangerous when the blue rings glow an electric blue, when it feels threatened. It is spectacular when this happens, and it attracts children, so they need to be warned not to touch anything!!

The bite doesn’t hurt, and will happen if you pick it up. Within a few minutes the venom will give breathing difficulties and nausea, and worse still if it triggers an allergic reaction.

Cone Shells

Cone shells look very pretty but this shellfish is one of the most dangerous animals on the Great Barrier Reef.

The problem is that there are many different types of Cone Shells all over the Reef, some harmless, and some so deadly they can kill a human, as they have the most potent neurotoxins known about, in their venom.

If you add to this they have attractive shells then holidaymakers pick them up, and if threatened the Cone Shell will fire a harpoon like dart into the victim. You will know if this happens or if you stand on one when walking, because the sting will be felt straight away.

Lion Fish

Lion-fish are members of the Scorpion Fish family and are found all over the Great Barrier Reef. They are difficult to see, and much sought after, but they hide up in crevices and small caves. The fact that they like shallow water makes them a threat to swimmers, because they have venomous and extremely large fin spines that can penetrate the skin, giving immediate pain resulting in muscle swelling, cramps, nausea, fainting and even death.

They can be recognised because they have stripes similar to a zebra

Stone Fish

Stonefish are ugly looking creatures, mottled green - brown in colour, with 13 dorsal spines that release a poisonous toxin when pressed, so stepping on one is a very painful experience. The pain can be excruciating and death is a possibility..

They are found mainly in the warmer northern half of the Great Barrier Reef, and they live on top of rocks or the seabed, where they lie motionless,, and their camouflage colours make them almost impossible to see. They are therefore a danger at low tide when walking along the beach, so footwear with thick soles is important. The severity of the pain and the symptoms will depend on the depth of penetration of the poisonous spine.

Finally there are 15 species of sea snakes on the Great Barrier Reef, and all of them produce lethal venom. The good news is they have small fangs and aren’t aggressive, and no-one has died from a bite.

Stingrays can be very unpleasant if you stand on their tail, as they whip up and can cut you very badly. You must ensure your anti tetanus is up to date before leaving home.

All this makes depressing reading, but remember tens of thousands of people take a Great Barrier Reef Holiday, Vacation & Tour every year, and only a very few are unlucky, so be sensible, take precautions.
