One of the Whitsundays' most iconic island resorts is on the mend after sustaining significant damage during Cyclone Debbie. Daydream Island bore the brunt of the category four storm when it hit near Airlie Beach on March 28, 2017. Wind gusts of up to 260km/hr and a tidal surge tore through the resort resulting in its temporary closure.
Following the devastation of Cyclone Debbie, Amicus was engaged by CCIG, the current owner of Daydream Island to deliver a multi-million dollar refurbishment project. The major works include the redevelopment of the Transit Pavilion, Reception/Main Atrium Area, Waterfalls Restaurant, Lagoon Bar, Accommodation Wings and the famous Mermaids building.
One of Daydream Island’s signature attractions, the Living Reef lagoon, has also being upgraded and is receiving some brand new features which will enhance interaction with guests. As the Principal Contractor on the site, Amicus is responsible for managing a 250+ labour force, multiple sub-contractors, island logistics, staff accommodation & welfare. As completion nears, Amicus has established themselves as a long-term contractor within the Whitsunday region, specialising in remote hotel and resort construction.
When completed, Daydream Island will accommodate up to 600 guests with five restaurants, three bars and two beautifully landscaped pools. The Daydream Island refurbishment project is due for completion in early 2019.
