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

The alluring island retreat offers reimagined resort living in beautifully appointed guest rooms, suites, villas and penthouses set amidst pools, lush gardens and pristine white sand beaches.

Almost half of the accommodation comes in the form of suites, villas or penthouses, offering a wide variety of choices for couples, groups and families.

The newly designed Pool Wing has been transformed into an all-suite experience, each suite overlooking the resort’s iconic pool and offering panoramic views of the Coral Sea. Pool Wing Suites provide separate living and dining areas and spacious decks, with each pool level suite offering direct swim-out access. 

The Hayman Wing offers generously sized guest rooms, most with ocean views, as well as a series of magnificent 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 beach, but are also partnered with Retreat Rooms located directly behind to accommodate larger groups, creating the perfect Australian beach holiday for families.

The resort’s eye-catching pool, restaurants and bars have also undergone a stylish transformation, offering chic new pool cabanas and daybeds, and elegant interiors and unique dining experiences throughout the resort.

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

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

“With our partners, Mulpha, we have completely 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, whilst capturing the breathtaking beauty of one of the world’s natural wonders.”
