Daydream Island a hit with Aussie families

READERS of Holidays with Kids magazine have once again voted Daydream Island Resort and Spa one of the top 10 family resorts in Australia.

Daydream Island Resort and Spa was awarded fourth place in the ‘Australia, Over 4 Stars’ category of the Holidays with Kids Readers Choice Top 10 Awards 2014.

Covering both Australia and the most popular family holiday destinations overseas, the Top 10 Awards are voted on by thousands of readers each year.

Daydream Island Resort and Spa chief executive officer Scott Wilkinson said he was delighted that so many past guests had enjoyed their holiday at Daydream Island.

“Daydream Island Resort and Spa offers the perfect base for families who want to explore the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef,” he said.

“We have an amazing range of activities for the whole family to enjoy including the Living Reef, one of the world’s largest man made coral reef lagoons where guests can hand feed sharks, stingrays and barramundi; an Australia-themed mini-golf course; outdoor movies; rainforest walks and more.

“We also have an excellent range of dining venues, from casual dining to our signature Mermaids Restaurant; high-quality accommodation and an award-winning spa, the ideal getaway for some pampering and relaxation.

“We are committed to delivering the best possible experience for our guests and we look forward to welcoming more families to Daydream Island.”

Daydream Island Resort and Spa is located in Queensland’s tropical Whitsundays in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, only a 30 minute boat ride from Great Barrier Reef Airport (HTI) and a 30 minute ferry ride from Airlie Beach.

The award-winning resort features 296 rooms and suites - so there’s plenty of space for the whole family - a great selection of restaurants and bars, lagoon swimming pools, a fringing coral reef to explore and a Rejuvenation Spa offering health and beauty treatments.

The whole family can enjoy over 20 free guest activities which include kayaks, catamarans, stand-up paddle boards, a stingray and shark feeding show and an open air cinema.

Daydream Island Brings Sexy Back to the Whitsundays

THE Whitsunday’s Daydream Island Resort and Spa is celebrating today after being featured on an episode of the Seven Network’s new reality show Bringing Sexy Back.

The reality television show features the incredible transformations of ordinary Australians after making the decision to improve their health and fitness.

Last night’s episode featured Livio Caldarone, a pizza chef from the Sunshine Coast who gained 40 kilograms in just two years. Fearing for his health and suffering from low self-esteem, Livio held off on committing to a wedding date to his fiancĂ© and mother to his two children, Holly, until he was able to bring back the man she fell in love with.

After more than five months of exercise and healthy eating, Livio travelled to Daydream Island where he unveiled his amazing transformation and 33-kilogram weight loss in front of his family and friends. With the wedding being the motivating event of his weight loss journey, Livio was also able to fulfill his dream of marrying the love of his life at their dream wedding destination where they said their ‘I-dos’ the very next day.

Holly and Livio with their children
Holly and Livio were married at magical Lovers Cove, which is one of the most exclusive and private locations on Daydream Island. It offers the best of natural beauty, hosting a large wooden deck set on a white coral beach with waves rolling in just metres away and the Whitsunday Passage as the backdrop.

For an island location, this project was logistically huge.

Months of planning and preparation went into the episode, which involved organising barges to transport freight and lighting trucks along with the famous Sexy truck, which holds the state of the art Dexa body scanner over to the island. It was a multi-camera shoot and we were even lucky enough to witness a drone camera in operation, which was able to capture amazing aerial footage of the island.

Not only did Daydream host the wedding party on the island, but also hosted up to 34 Seven Network crew members over four days, along with high profile host Samantha Armytage, personal trainer to the stars Cameron Byrnes and stylist, Jules Sebastian.

Daydream Island Resort and Spa’s CEO Scott Wilkinson said he was delighted that Livio had chosen Daydream Island for his wedding and weight-loss reveal.

“We’re thrilled that we could be part of this life-changing moment for Livio,” he said.

“Daydream was the perfect backdrop for them and their family and friends who all contributed to a special experience.

“We strive to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience for all of our guests where they can enjoy quality accommodation, superior service, delicious food and a range of activities against the beautiful backdrop of the Whitsunday Passage.

“It’s the perfect place to relax and feel reinvigorated and renewed.”

He said the exposure and potential interest generated from the show for both the leisure and wedding markets would be invaluable.

Livio was amazed by the location and wedding on Daydream Island.

“It was the most wonderful experience; I had the wedding of my dreams,” he said.

“Daydream was the perfect place for a reveal and I felt like a superstar.”

Daydream Island is home to three stunning ceremony venues. Along with Lovers Cove, which featured on the episode, there is the Endeavour Wedding Chapel which is situated at the water’s edge and featuring a floor to ceiling glass wall behind the altar. Ceremonies are also held on the picturesque and iconic Mermaids Beach with Daydream Island’s signature bronzed mermaids and the Whitsunday Islands as the perfect backdrop.

The multi award-winning resort, which recently took out best ‘Waterview’ and ‘Resort Reception’ venue at the inaugural Queensland Wedding and Events of Australia ‘Awards for Excellence’, can cater for weddings from two right up to 250 guests. With eight magnificent reception venues available and with a dedicated team of wedding professionals, couples are spoilt for choice at Daydream Island.

“It’s wonderful that we can raise awareness of Daydream and the Whitsunday Islands like this,” Mr Wilkinson said. “We look forward to welcoming more people to beautiful Daydream Island.”

The episode can be viewed online here.
