Hayman Island by InterContinental

One of Australia’s most iconic private island resorts has reopened as Hayman Island by InterContinental. Located at the northernmost point of the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, the property was a One&Only resort prior to a tropical cyclone that closed the island in 2017.

It has since undergone a $135 million refurbishment under the IHG brand, led by a prominent group of designers including DBI Designs, DAAC and KY Design.

With 166 rooms, suites and villas across three distinct wings, the property also offers a 400-square-metre, three-bedroom Hayman Beach House; five restaurants and bars; and numerous water-based activities making the most of its location on the closest private island to the Great Barrier Reef.
