InterContinental Hayman Island Resort 

This stunning resort sits on the fringe of the Great Barrier Reef, and offers luxury and indulgence in every way.

Reopening in July 2019, the InterContinental Hayman Island Resort is bringing back five-star luxury to one of the world's most breathtaking locations. The most northerly of the Whitsunday Islands, this iconic private island resort has been completely transformed, with new room types, refreshed dining concepts and a reimagined state-of-the-art spa introduced. It's sleek and contemporary, an island paradise offering world-class facilities and exotic natural beauty. Spend days exploring the great depths of the Great Barrier Reef, or while away an afternoon sailing the cerulean waters of the Coral Sea. If doing nothing appeals most, indulge in a series of spa treatments personalised to you or bask in the serene beachfront waters of the luxurious pool.

From a relaxed seafood barbecue to a seven-course gourmet-tasting menu, the range of culinary experiences here are spectacular. Each of the world-class restaurants and bars will combine innovative artistry with sumptuous local flavours. Enriched by tropical garden settings or views that drink in the clear waters of the ocean, revitalized dining options include a refreshed Pacific restaurant, an authentic Italian trattoria and a brand new Pan-Asian beachfront pool club.

From sophisticated sea-facing retreats to private garden sanctuaries, all of the rooms offer a tranquil sense of escapism. Housed in three separate wings across the resort, each one combines a contemporary design with subtle elements that reflect the island's natural beauty. Chic interiors have been elegantly refreshed, with new designs, larger layouts and improved quality introduced. Serene marble bathrooms feature spacious showers with separate bathtubs, and private balconies drink in gorgeous views of the pool, lagoon or ocean.
