Fitzroy Island Resort
Fitzroy Island Resort is a newly developed, world class resort carefully designed to complement the spectacular natural setting of this Great Barrier Reef island while truly indulging resort guests.
Fitzroy Island Resort exudes luxury and elegance, island-style. It's stylish, modern and sophisticated with all the features you'd expect of a modern resort. Yet at Fitzroy Island Resort, it's a more natural tropical sophistication that suits the island paradise on which it was created.
Surrounded on one side by majestic rainforest and on the other by vast expanses of crystal clear ocean, the location demanded something special. And so the resort has been carved with warm timbers, natural stone, elegant water features and mood lighting combining with simple architectural lines to create a resort that integrates seamlessly within the natural environment.
The result is a magnificent yet serene oasis where day guests and longer stay visitors can relax, unwind and be indulged within the privacy of this amazing Great Barrier Reef island.
