Voyages Lizard Island on Top of the World!

Voyages Lizard Island has been named the Top Hotel in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific at the 13th Annual Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards.

Over 900,000 readers can’t be wrong! For the fourth time, readers of Travel + Leisure magazine in the USA have voted Voyages Lizard Island as the Top Hotel in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. In addition to this award, Lizard Island is ranked at No. 24 on the Top 100 Hotels Overall list.

Travel + Leisure readers are among the most sophisticated, passionate and discerning travellers in the world. The readers are required to rate the properties on five characteristics: rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food, and value.

Voyages’ Executive General Manager Sales and Marketing Anna Guillan says that, “Lizard Island epitomises the best Australia has to offer. 24 powdery-white beaches, diving on the Great Barrier Reef and big game fishing adventures. Add the sheer class of a world class resort with a barefoot luxury feel and you have a truly unique place.”

“This prestigious accolade is particularly special to Voyages because it is voted by the magazine’s readers, people who have actually stayed at the resort,” said Guillan.

The results of Travel + Leisure’s 2008 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey will be featured in the August issue of Travel + Leisure (US) and online at
