InterContinental Hayman Island Resort does all it can to create one of the ultimate Whitsundays experiences.
With its string of irresistible fine-dining restaurants, a heavenly holistic spa, watersports including underwater Seabob adventures, scuba, snorkelling and jet ski, plus several swimming pools that look out towards the ocean, you can see why.
The hotel itself is split into three distinct – though equally enticing – accommodation options: the Lagoon, Pool and Beach Wings which will see you either overlooking the surrounding countryside and gardens, getting instant access to a large lake-style pool or open up directly onto the beach. Importantly, the guestrooms, suites and villas of all three categories are each bedecked in the same uber-trendy and contemporary beach-chic stylings, minimalist décor and comfy furnishings, just as you’ll find throughout the rest of the resort too.
While staying at InterContinental Hayman Island Resort you are situated at the northern tip of the Whitsundays, meaning the pristine Great Barrier Reef waters are all around you – easily explored with a private yacht charter or island-hopping boat trip, seaplane or helicopter tour, scuba diving, snorkelling or some stand-up paddleboarding. All of these are available from the hotel as well as its modern gym and soothing spa, sports courts, golf simulator and kids’ club full of games and activities to keep little ones entertained.
And then there’s the InterContinental Hayman Island Resort’s restaurant options, a mouth-watering gastronomic journey from Asia to Italy with a good dose of Australian fine-dining suave, pairing-wine menus, cocktail bars and deliciously seasonal seafood also part of the foodie package here.
InterContinental Hayman Island Resort is made up of 166 guestrooms, suites and villas split between three sections of the hotel which overlook a nearby lagoon and the hotel gardens, one of the main pools or straight out towards the ocean. Between the three options there are then a range of one, two or three-bedroom suites to choose from (great for families), plus a standalone three-bedroom house which is simply stunning. All are wonderfully well-equipped and beautifully styled in modern, summery tones and occasional art deco touches, with no expense spared on quality throughout. Some come with an immaculate private pool and daybed, a kitchenette and lounge area, though every room category enjoys a king-size bed and plush linens, separate bathtub and shower plus all the mod-cons.
An elegantly styled sea-view restaurant that’s entirely enveloped by glass, serving up seasonal fine-dining cuisine from the freshest breakfast buffets, to an exquisite a la carte evening menu and wine-pairing list to match. In particular, the delectable seafood dishes, scallops, oyster platters and perfectly prepared catch of the day are not to be missed.
Poolside Bam Bam brings an Asian flare to your afternoon eating options at InterContinental Hayman Island Resort, ideal for easy lunches of flavour-filled noodle dishes, zingy salads and fresh seafood flame-grilled in oriental spices.
Al fresco Aqua is a suitably laid-back onsite restaurant offering sharing platters, cocktails, fresh fruit juice and lighter bites throughout the day.
For a glass of bubbly or handcrafted cocktail, cheese board and paired wine, or creamy coffee and homemade cake, head to Bar Fifty, the hotel’s sophisticated lobby/lounge area.
Activities and Entertainment
The Whitsunday Islands are a natural haven that beg to be explored and admired, while staying at the InterContinental Hayman Island Resort. You can charter a private yacht, take a seaplane tour or boat trip between islands, go scuba diving, snorkelling or windsurfing, or go around the Great Barrier Reef, all directly from the hotel. Other watersports include stand-up paddle boarding, jet skiing and for something even more unforgettable, an underwater Seabob adventure is a must.
The InterContinental Hayman Island Resort may well be on the doorstep of all the Whitsundays has to offer, yet its first-class offering of in-house facilities is also noteworthy. So, on top of the instant beach access and boat tours there’s also multiple outdoor swimming pools here overlooking the ocean; sun decks lined with loungers; a modern gym, yoga studio and holistic spa with its own vitality pools and massage therapies; the Planet Trekkers Kids Club; tennis, basketball and squash; as well as a golf simulator too.
