Hayman Island resort to reopen in August

Article content

27 May 2011 by Luke McCormick

Australia's Hayman resort will welcome back guests from 01 August this year it has been announced.

Australasia's most awarded luxury nature resort, Hayman was temporarily closed in March as a result of damage caused by tropical cyclones Anthony and Yasi, which passed over the island 30 January and 02 February.

Hayman's general manager, Shane Green, said: "The two cyclones regrettably did not spare Hayman entirely and specialist assessments identified that the rectification works required across various parts of the island would result in significant guest impact and the closure of the resort for a period of time."

"The works encompass key guest and accommodation areas, activity facilities, essential infrastructure, landscaping, vegetation and grounds works throughout the island."

As part of the major restoration works to the resort's surrounds, award-winning landscape designer Jamie Durie has been brought in to rejuvenate Hayman's stunning gardens.

Meanwhile, Hayman was recently inducted into the Luxury Travel & Style's Gold List Hall of Fame.

The magazine said of the resort: "Hayman Island is among our Hall of Fame members with a sixth consecutive win in the Best Australian Resort category. With its new Beach Villas, now you have another reason to visit Australia's favourite luxury resort".
