Whether you arrive by swish white yacht, or make your entrance by seaplane – or a helicopter for that matter – you cannot fail to be enchanted by the aptly named Hayman Island. It’s a hotel with its own sense of style and unassuming refinement.

But the real reason you specified Hayman Island for your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Australia is the fact that the hotel gives you unrivalled access to one of the world’s wonders; the Great Barrier Reef. You will be staying at the northern tip of the Whitsunday Archipelago, on the closest island to the fabulous Outer Reef that includes spectacular Heart Reef. The perfect place for discovering an unimaginably beautiful undersea world, populated by colourful corals and a vast diversity of marine life.
