Hayman Island Overview

Australia’s most iconic private island resort re-imagined. Welcome to a secluded paradise of serenity and breathtaking beauty. Surrounded by verdant cliffs, crescent-shaped white beaches and celestial-blue sea, Hayman Island by InterContinental presents a spectacular sensory experience teeming with natural beauty and mindful enrichment. From the moment you step off your seaplane, helicopter or luxury yacht, you will discover an idyllic destination of privacy and pampering; where diving the Great Barrier Reef, basking in your private pool, sailing the Coral Sea, indulging in culinary artistry and soulful spa treatments are but yet the beginning.

Unrivaled luxury begins with 166 elegantly-renovated rooms, suites and villas across three distinct wings of the Resort.

The upgrade has substantially improved the size and quality of the rooms, many of which are double the size of the old ones, with equally large bedrooms and living rooms, and private balcony or (on the ground floor) direct access to the garden or pool area.

Bedrooms are equipped with a mini-bar, a tray with a kettle and Nespresso machine, TV and iPod dock, and a large comfortable four-poster bed with good reading lights and a bedside master switch.
