Daydream Resort wins big at tourism awards

DAYDREAM Island Resort and Spa was one of the big winners at the Whitsunday Tourism and Business Awards 2014 after winning three awards at the gala event, which was held in Proserpine.

The resort won awards for Best Tourist Attraction for the Living Reef - one of the world's largest man-made living lagoons, best Deluxe Accommodation and the People's Choice categories.

It is the third year in a row Daydream Island has won the Deluxe Accommodation category and as a result was enshrined into the Hall of Fame.

"The Daydream experience is always evolving and we are very excited to be recognised in three categories of the Whitsundays Tourism Awards," Daydream Island Resort and Spa CEO Scott Wilkinson said.

"These awards reflect the hard work resort manager Warren McCorriston and the entire team put in to ensure we offer the very best experiences, from our Living Reef lagoon to our pampering Rejuvenation Spa.

"We are particularly thrilled to again win the Deluxe Accommodation category and to be included into the Hall of Fame.

"Winning the People's Choice category is especially pleasing as it's voted on by members of the public."
