Within this private island resort, stylish elegance reflects the harmony of nature with beautifully appointed accommodation set against the backdrop of the Coral Sea. Discover endless opportunities to delight the senses in a place where the beauty of nature inspires each day.
Relish in spectacular dining experiences, surrender to a signature Ocean Massage, explore private beaches and immerse yourself in captivating underwater adventures. One&Only Hayman Island is a unique destination of discovery set in one of the seven wonders of the natural world – Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
The Whitsundays is one of Australia’s natural wonders – a treasure chest of 74 emerald islands set in a sapphire sea.
The island group lies midway along Australia’s Queensland coast, with the famous Great Barrier Reef reached after a short boat or seaplane ride. Airlie Beach is the vibrant hub of the region, and gateway to the islands – only eight of which are inhabited.
The islands and waters are rich with wildlife, the beaches and coves are places of magic. Sink your feet into the white, silica sands of world-famous Whitehaven Beach; hike an island trail to secret bays; or set sail across the sparkling azure waters, keeping company with the dolphins and rays.
Each of the inhabited islands is known for setting its own pace, offering a mix of popular resorts, gleaming marinas and exclusive retreats.
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest reef system comprising nearly 3,000 individual reefs and 900 islands – it is also the planet’s biggest single living structure formed by billions of tiny organisms known as coral polyps. It stretches for over 2,600km, covering approximately 350,000 square kilometres.
A large part of the reef is protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which helps to limit the impact of human use.
With direct access to the Great Barrier Reef and world-famous Whitehaven Beach, exhilarating helicopter and seaplane tours, diving, snorkelling and fishing adventures are the gateway to the natural riches of the reef. Marvel at the shades of a thousand different shimmering fish – like the yellow-tailed fusiliers that brush close enough to touch your eyelids. Water sports include water-skiing, kayaking, catamaran sailing, windsurfing and paddle skiing. Nightly rates include the use of non-motorised watersports and selected resort activities including tennis, squash, croquet and golf putting and chipping.
KidsOnly provides children with the opportunity to explore a private island paradise. Activities include fun reef ranger outings, fish feeding, beach games, tennis, evening nature walks and visits to the famous Chocolate Room.
One&Only Spa offers an immersion of total tranquillity with indulgent treatments, while wellness facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness centre.
