It’s the news we’ve been waiting to hear, Hayman Island by InterContinental® will open on July 1 with the iconic resort now taking reservations.

GRAB your brightest highlighter, open your diary to the middle of the year, and get ready to start circling because we have big news you will definitely want to record.

Hayman Island by InterContinental®, the newest and most fabulous resort heading to the heart of Australia’s beautiful Great Barrier Reef, will welcome its first guests on July 1.


We hear you woo-hooing and, just like you, can’t wait to see what travellers seeking a special stay near the Queensland coast will find when they set foot on the picturesque parcel a stone’s throw from Airlie Beach.

Industry scuttlebutt suggests millions is being spent transforming the 166-room resort sitting beside the Coral Sea, and we hear that while guests will certainly be able to indulge in relaxing stop-and-flop vacations there’s a little more on the holiday menu.


As well as five new restaurants and bars, and a blissful spa and wellness centre promising to transform tired bodies, those checking into the renovated property will become immersed in the unrivaled beauty and serenity of the Great Barrier Reef.

It will be about enjoying the company of travelling companions, family, friends, mind, body, food, wine, special moments, celebrations, and immersing in the signature luxury of the InterContinental life.


And while the doors won’t open until July 1 that doesn’t mean you can’t get a jump on making plans for clients this very minute with Hayman Island by InterContinental® now taking reservations.

So those customers already talking about a mid-winter break stacked with sun, sea, and sand can confirm a stay and start dreaming about days of five-star luxury on Australia’s east coast.


Hayman Island by InterContinental® promises to be a secluded paradise in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef with guest suites surrounded by verdant cliffs, crescent-shaped beaches carpeted in fine white sand, and a celestial-blue sea stretching to the horizon.


Privacy and pampering are two words being used to describe a stay at the reimagined retreat with visitors offered the chance to sit beside the Hayman’s iconic swimming pool, snorkel on coral reefs a few metres from shore, or watch the sun sink towards the sparkling blue at the end of a perfect day.


Or it might be savouring a holistic spa treatment, lingering over a meal packed with gourmet goodies prepared from the freshest local ingredients, or simply sitting with feet in the sand to appreciate temperatures that hover around 25C during winter.

Guests will arrive at the private island in the northern corner of the Whitsundays archipelago by seaplane, helicopter or yacht then settle into rooms, suites and villas resting in the elegant Lagoon, Pool or Beach wings.



There’s everything from sophisticated sea-facing sanctuaries to chambers surrounded by tropical gardens with every category of accommodation an oasis of calm boasting contemporary design enhanced by the location’s natural beauty.

So mark July 1 in your 2019 diary and contact those clients that love a little luxury about reserving a room right now as space is set to fill fast in Australia’s newest sunshine-state resort.
