Stretches of pearly white sand with turquoise water lapping at the shores as the tropical sun shines down can only be made better with a glass of crisp Dom Pérignon Champagne.

Escape to the Great Barrier Reef’s northernmost resort, Lizard Island – a secluded paradise accessible only by private charter.

With private boats, spectacular starlit skies and decadent picnics, the Dom Pérignon Retreat is home to magical experiences that complement its marvellous location.

The global leader in Champagne paired with Queensland’s Lizard Island in September 2018, offering guests the holiday of a lifetime.

For adventure seekers, the Dom Pérignon Dive and Private Beach Escape is the perfect addition to the tropical sojourn. Guests suit up in the French winery’s customised wetsuits and take a guided tour of the pristine waters and renowned marine life.

Post-dive, a chilled flute of France’s finest will be waiting on the sandy shores. Visitors are then transferred to Sunset Beach, a breathtaking corner of the island, for a gourmet seafood picnic featuring lobster rolls paired with Dom Pérignon 2009.

For those seeking a relaxing culinary experience, the beachside Dom Pérignon Dining Under the Stars experience will be unforgettable.

With private boats, spectacular starlit skies and decadent picnics, the Dom Pérignon Retreat is home to magical experiences that complement its marvellous location.
