Daydream Island still on market but buyers are lining up

DUST off your wallets, Daydream Island is still up for grabs more than eight months after the patch of paradise was put on the market.

But it may not be for long.

Daydream Island spokesman Brenton Gibbs said there had been a number of interested parties inquiring about the island.

"The sale process definitely hasn't been finalised," Mr Gibbs said.

"It's an ongoing process."

Flamboyant businessman and former Nature's Own Vitamin company owner Vaughan Bullivant purchased Daydream for $12.5 million in 2000.

He has since spent millions on the resort, and the Daily Mercury understands Mr Bullivant will only sell the island to a buyer who guarantees island staff will continue to be employed.

There is no set price for Daydream Island.

Mr Gibbs would not comment on the nationality of potential buyers, other than to say he believed they were from both Australia and overseas.

Daydream Island Resort and Spa has 296 rooms and suites, each offering views of tropical waters or rainforest.

The island features white coral beaches and lush rainforest and has been the recipient of numerous tourism and hospitality awards.
