Hayman is the northernmost of Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands with its calm, azure waters and pristine beaches sheltered by the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. Departing from the island, beginners to certified divers have the chance to discover the delights of this underwater paradise. Guests can also take to the air with seaplane and helicopter tours or charter a boat to explore the reef at their leisure. On the island itself, there are nature trails through the island’s tropical interior, teeming with wildlife.
The resort’s newly refurbished accommodation is split across three areas of the resort each providing a different style and atmosphere, while taking full advantage of Hayman's natural setting. Set on the island’s quieter eastern side, The Hayman Wing looks out over the lagoon, while the Pool Wing (predictably) has views out over the pool to the Coral Sea beyond. Lastly, for beachside living, the Beach Wing is perfect for a private getaway. Each room is beautifully appointed, but look for accommodation with private pools for the quintessential Aussie holiday experience.
Enjoy imaginative menus created by world-class chefs at the resort's superb selection of restaurants. For something extra special, a range of private dining experiences, including the intimate ‘Under the Stars Dining’, beach picnics and the signature Chef's Table, offer guests the chance to enjoy the finest ingredients, carefully prepared and served in unique settings. The resort's bars, serving creative cocktails, vintage wines, cold beers, savoury snacks and light bites are the perfect places to relax.
With its remarkable location on the doorstep of the Great Barrier Reef, it’s of little wonder that the aforementioned activities and excursions play a central role in a holiday at One&Only Hayman Island. Fitness and sports are also available, with a state-of-the-art gym, four tennis courts, a basketball court and a squash court all on site. And, if that all seems like a bit too much, the One&Only Spa offers an extensive menu of traditional and contemporary treatments in a stunning beachside setting, the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after a day exploring the reef. The resort also has a fantastic kids club and is one of the only luxury resorts in the Whitsundays to cater to children under 12.
