Australia’s iconic island resort in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, One&Only Hayman Island is welcoming guests again after a major multi-million-dollar refurbishment.                                                     

The result of a collaboration between Kerzner International Development and the award-winning Australian design team at DBI Design, One&Only Hayman Island offers reimagined resort living with beautifully appointed guest rooms, suites, villas and penthouses, set amid expansive pools, tropical gardens, and more than a mile of pristine white sand beaches.

Almost half of the accommodation comes in the form of a suite, villa or penthouse, offering a wide variety of choices for couples, groups and families.

The newly designed Pool Wing has been transformed to an all-suite experience, with views of the iconic One&Only Hayman Pool and the Coral Sea. Pool Wing Suites feature separate living and dining areas and spacious private decks, with each pool level suite offering direct “swim-out” access.

The One&Only Hayman Wing offers generously sized guest rooms, most with water views, as well as a selection of one-, two- and three-bedroom Penthouse Residences, including one created exclusively by the legendary fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg.

A spectacular collection of Kerry Hill-designed Beach Villas and the freestanding private Beach House are perfect for those guests who prefer to be directly on the beach.

In their new One&Only configuration, the beach villas not only offer private pools and direct access to the resort’s main beach, but are also partnered with Retreat Rooms located directly behind to accommodate larger groups.

The resort’s signature pool has been given a renewed energy with private cabanas and daybeds and offers all-day dining and relaxation at the On the Rocks restaurant and bar.

One&Only Hayman Island’s restaurants and bars have also undergone a transformation, offering new interiors and unique dining experiences throughout the resort.

The One&Only Spa at Hayman Island is the first spa in Australia to use Amala products in its extensive menu of luxurious treatments.

“One&Only Hayman Island is our first resort in the Asia Pacific region, and we are excited to introduce our style to this part of the world,” said Alan Leibman, CEO of Kerzner International.

“With our partners, Mulpha, we have redefined luxury in the Great Barrier Reef and transformed the guest experience with the hallmarks of excellence found in One&Only resorts around the world, while also capturing the beauty of one of the natural wonders of the world.”
