Found sitting pretty on a five by three-mile private island, located in the very north of the Whitsunday Islands, you’ll find the modernist InterContinental Hayman Island. This island is filled with wonderful flora and fauna such as brightly coloured birds, wallabies and a beautiful variety of sea life along the Great Barrier Reef.
The interior is extremely slick in design thanks to a multi-million-pound refurbishment, and the hard lines of the white walls and stone floors make for an interesting visual contrast to the wild and exotic vegetation surrounding it.
The 160 rooms here are spacious and feature four-poster beds for the upmost comfort and style as well as offering equally roomy lounges. Bathrooms are grand in design with sleek marble and boast baths big enough for two, as well as large showers. Private balconies offer incredible views over the blue ocean ahead or the pristine pool, while rooms on the ground floor offer access to the gardens and pool area.
Here you will also find six beachside studio-style villas which provide the perfect place to relax: a private courtyard plunge pool.
Dining options here are plenty, with five restaurants and a bar on-site. Head to Pacific restaurant for typically Australian laid-back vibes, with contemporary Australian cuisine served with the country’s best wines and boutique beers. Or for a more bold and energetic atmosphere, head to Bam Bam restaurant, located beside the infinity pool, where you can indulge in a range of Asian cuisine. For contemporary Italian cuisine, head to Amici Trattoria where you’ll find Amalfi Coast-inspired interiors. Or for a truly romantic experience you can enjoy private dining on the beach.
The hotel’s location perfectly lends itself to a range of land and water activities, such as hiking and walking trails, as well as swimming, scuba diving, snorkelling through a string of reefs and sailing on the sparkling sea. After a busy day of exploring the island’s wonders, head to the Hayman Spa where you’ll find ten luxurious treatment rooms and a range of healing body treatments.
