Case Study

Daydream Island Resort

Daydream Island, Whitsundays


After Daydream Island Resort was devastated by cyclone Debbie, Amicus was engaged by CCIG to deliver the multi-million dollar refurbishment project. The major works included the redevelopment of the Transit Pavilion, Reception, Main Atrium Area, all accommodation rooms, Mermaids Building, new and existing restaurants and bars, and the Living Reef lagoons which received some brand new features to enhance guests' experience of the surrounding environment.


As the Principal Contractor on the site, Amicus was responsible for construction which included managing a 200+ labour force, multiple sub-contractors, island logistics, staff accommodation & welfare. The project budget was $82mil including swimming pool refurbishment and furniture supply as separate contracts.


Daydream Island Resort now operates as a fully functional 4 Star Resort, accommodating up to 600 guests with unrivalled conference facilities, five restaurants, three bars, two beautifully landscaped pools and the largest outdoor living reef aquarium in the world.
