| We are in the lagoon deluxe suites. |
I just was on the phone to them this morning checking that nothing bad happened to them from the cyclone. I felt awful checking my honeymoon would go well when all these people have lost so much, and the affects will last forever. But the girl assured me I wasn't the only one!
That will be nice. It is a bit quieter down that end.

We then went to Peppers Palm Bay for 3 nights (mini bungalows on the beach, five star dining, no kids........peeerrrfect). We loved it here as it is casual, romantic and just the loveliest experience for a few days of rest after the big day. I would soo love to go back.
We then went to Hayman for 3 nights too but found it overpriced and a bit run down. It is one of the more exclusive islands but you definaltey need to be prepared to spend if you go there. It wasnt my cup of tea but i know alot of people rave about it and have a great time.
It is such a beautiful part of the world i am sure you will find somewhere perfect.
There are a few websites that have more information too on all the islands.
Also check trip advisor as there is quite alot of feedback on all the islands.

I think if you decide to go up there, you will enjoy anywhere you go. It is absolutely beautiful up there.

If you go to Daydream though make sure you get breakfast included.. We didnt and it cost us 30 dollars every morning for breakfast.. Im not a big eater so it was a waste of money.
We went there at the end of Feb and got tropical storms for 3 days we were there.. But the weather had apparently been lovely the weeks before so you will be lucky if its like that.. It was still hot though..
Definatley go to Whitehaven beach! We did an ocean rafting day on the North end and got to see alot of the islands from the boat. It was so much fun!! Its high speed and you get a real adrenelin rush! Stopped over at Whitehaven for lunch (all supplied) and did a bit of snorkelling on Dumbell Island which was amazing.. All this was included in the Ocean Rafting for about 60 dollars I think per person. They pick up from Daydream and Airley Beach. If you want to see Whitehaven I think thats the way to go because you get a few extra things thrown in.
Our trip from Melbourne for the two of us including air fares boat transfers and 5 nights accomodation cost us about 1500 dollars.. Which I think is very reasonable.. Meals are ok. Some restaurants are expensive but the Fishbowl tavern is pub style meals and open most nights.. But hey its your honeymoon and hopefully you will only do it once!!
Hope that helps!

We also stayed at South Molle, While this wasn't a 5 star resort at all we found it very relaxing and there are heaps of walks you can do. We were able to get away from the crowds and have one on one time.

Things to do that I recommend:
Ocean rafting or a sailing trip (We went on Camira which had free alcohol and food YAY!)
Jet-skiing - very fun!
Skydiving - the highest in Oz! Sure makes it a trip to remember!
Whitehaven Beach and Hills Inlet - do both so you get to spend time on the beach as well as the see the awesome view from the lookout over Hills Inlet
Have a great time!
