CLUB Med's Lindeman Island Resort has shut its doors but Tourism Whitsundays is confident it won't be long before tourists are walking back through them.
Tourism Whitsundays chief executive officer Peter O'Reilly predicted it wouldn't take too long for a buyer to snap up the iconic resort.
"It is a beautiful island. It's a national park island with walking tracks, an airstrip," he said.
"It's a really lovely setting.
"They [Club Med] were disappointed they didn't sell it prior to Christmas."
Club Med announced in December that it would close the 218-room resort.
Mr O'Reilly said it was a shame Club Med was no longer in the Whitsundays.
"The resort was so unique in the broader tourism landscape," he said.
"It is quite an unusual product."
Mr O'Reilly said it was the only resort where pricing had been completely inclusive. Packages included accommodation, activities, food and drinks.
However, he believed the resort's family-friendly atmosphere may have led to its closure.
"It [the resort] doesn't fit with the Club Med brand anymore. It has evolved and Lindeman hasn't. Club Med is more about couples now than family," he said.
Meanwhile, Paradise Bay Eco Resort on Long Island is in receivership but is continuing to operate.
