HAYMAN ISLAND

 

Recently undergoing an extensive refurbishment after the devastating Cyclone Debbie, Hayman island has been rebranded under the IHG Group revitalising the spectacular Whitsundays resort into the go-to destination of the region.

 

Arriving via a private helicopter, seaplane or luxurious yacht transfer, guests can enjoy light snacks and a glass of champagne (or your drink of choice) to quickly adapt to island time and create a sense of calmness and relaxation. Upon arrival to Hayman Island, guests are spoilt for choice with a range of guest rooms and residences ranging from poolside rooms, beachfront villas and expansive 4-bedroom residences designed by Kerry Hill featuring open-plan living spaces and infinity-edged swimming pools.

 

Spending $135 million to revitalise the iconic Australian property, general manager Mark Eletr, states “the resort has been renovated and reimagined for the modern traveller”. This has seen an array of new restaurant and dining options including, ACQUA the signature casual poolside dining offering, AMICI Trattoria, offering authentic Italian flavours, BAM BAM, Fusion-Asian offering located prominently along the beachfront pool and PACFIC, the signature fine dining experience.

 

Offering the perfect escape for the busy, discerning traveller, Hayman Island is the perfect destination to retreat from the world and revitalise the senses. “With no traffic, no schedules, the days are open and unscripted. People start sleeping better, they put their phones away, spend time with each other; they take responsibility for their own happiness.” Says Eletr. With a dedicated spa facility, guests can enjoy sublime rejuvenation treatments as well as take advantage of the onsite hair & beauty salon. For those looking for more thrill and adventure they too will not be disappointed with complimentary beachfront activities as well as personalised activities including, helicopter journeys, sunset cruises, jet skiing, boat-adventures, scuba diving, fishing and walking trails.

 

For an all-round vacation for the family or honeymooner couple, you will not be disappointed with a visit to the Intercontinental Hayman Island.
