Having made its debut on the luxury world stage on 1 July 2019, InterContinental Hayman Island Resort unveils a new era of immersive luxury in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Nestled at the northernmost point of the Whitsunday archipelago, Australia’s most iconic private island resort presents 168 rooms, suites, villas and residences, five restaurants and bars and an extensive collection of destination-inspired activities and experiences.
From the moment you step off your luxury catamaran or helicopter, you will discover an idyllic destination of privacy and pampering; where exploring the Great Barrier Reef, basking in private pools, sailing the Coral Sea, indulging in culinary artistry and Sodashi-infused spa treatments are but the beginning.
Hayman Island is situated on the northernmost part of the Whitsunday’s collection of 74 islands. Hayman Island is the nearest Whitsunday Island to the outer reef, including the world-famous Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach. One of only four islands in the Whitsundays to offer resort accommodation, Hayman Island is Australia’s most iconic private island resort.
Commanding magnificent views south across the Coral Sea, Hayman Island is 294 hectares (726 acres) in area, 8 kilometres (5 miles) in circumference and is perfectly positioned on a two-kilometre crescent-shaped stretch of stunning white sand beach. It enjoys an ideal climate year-round: May–October (Winter/Spring) average temperature of 25°C/77°F, November–April (Summer/Autumn) average temperature of 31°C/88°F.
