Set on the small and stunning Hayman Island, this idyllic resort is renowned for its service, elegant accommodations and, perhaps most of all, its fabulous location on the very edge of the Great Barrier Reef.

The clear waters surrounding the island are home to a kaleidoscopic array of tropical fish, providing dazzling snorkeling and diving directly off the beach. Other activities include swimming, catamaran sailing and windsurfing, whilst wildlife and hiking tours await you back on dry land. For something truly spectacular, and a chance to see the islands from a different perspective, opt for a seaplane or helicopter tour. Boasting both a Kids and Teens Club, the resort ensures guests of all ages have an exciting and memorable experience of Hayman Island. 

While offering plenty for the active guest, the resort also caters towards those who simply wish to relax with refreshing swimming pools, wonderfully secluded beaches and a tranquil spa where treatments are inspired by the lush surroundings. Recently refurbished, accommodations comes in the form of 160 light, spacious and elegantly furnished rooms, suites, villas and penthouses. All of which have either a private terrace or balcony.
