$50m upgrade for Daydream Island
Daydream Island near Australia – 24 January 2017
Daydream Island Resort and Spa’s owners China Capital Investment Group (CCIG) announce a more than US$50 million redevelopment which will see significant infrastructure upgrades to the Whitsunday tropical island resort. The works will see the resort closing in early 2018 to ensure renovations can occur in the shortest possible time and with minimal disruptions.
Daydream Island Resort and Spa general manager Dawson Tang says the major redevelopment will see accommodation refurbishments as well as renovations to existing attractions and installation of new features which will transform Daydream into an “upscale 4½ star world-class resort”.
“This is a very exciting development in the history of Daydream Island and for The Whitsundays,” he says. “Our owners have recognised the need to revamp Daydream’s facilities especially as we embark on a greater push into international markets including the lucrative China market.
“Prior to commencing the redevelopment in 2018 it will be very much business as usual this coming year.
“With well over 100,000 guests staying on Daydream Island each year we recognise the need to continuously improve our product and we will be improving the guest experience based on recent feedback right up until the redevelopment.”
CCIG purchased Daydream Island in March 2015.
