Wouldn’t it be nice to have a proper holiday? One like the adventure you were planning that got cancelled? Escaping into luxury, into beauty, into world-famous natural wonders—that dream is over until COVID ends, right?

Well never stop dreaming, because W Brisbane and Lady Elliot Island have teamed up to offer an experience of equal splendour and wonder to that adventure you were heading on pre-pandemic. And they’ve got a package that will make you realise that a dreamy vacay was just around the corner all along.

Introducing All Reefed Up, the ultimate island adventure; no border crossing or isolation necessary. An all you can enjoy getaway package that includes two nights’ accommodation at W Brisbane, parking, and—wait for it—a guided dip into the magnificence of the reef off Lady Elliot Island.

We haven’t even mentioned the 1.5-hour scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef that’s included, and you’re already thinking it’s too good to be true. It is too good, but it’s also true. When you arrive on the island you’ll be treated to a waterfront lunch at Beachfront Café, but the dream doesn’t end there. Next up is a beginner-friendly guided snorkelling tour into Lady Elliot Island’s crystal-clear waters. All the gear—snorkel, fins, wetsuit—are provided, along with expert instructors. All you have to do is relax, and soak in one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World.

Getting used to the idea of relaxing? Get even more used to it, because you’re heading back to the 5-star exuberance of W Brisbane. When you’re back on the mainland, take a relaxing moment before hitting the Living Room Bar and treating yourself with fine dining and exquisite cocktails. Or if your experience in the reef has you feeling a sustainable vibe, enjoy the Three Blue Ducks and their paddock-to-plate cuisine.

All this thinking about enjoying and indulging so much is probably enough to make you overwhelmed. Lucky you’ve got two nights to slow down and unwind in the luxe guest rooms in one of Brisbane CBD’s most striking hotels. Overlook the Brisbane River, or peep the heights of Mount Coot-tha, and relax in supreme style or walk out the door into the height of Brisbane’s nightlife.

Make your well-deserved dreams come true with All Reefed Up, from $1559 for single occupancy or $2418 for a couple’s retreat, with flights and transfers to Lady Elliot Island included. Get all the details and secure your booking right here.
