One of Australia’s most famous islands is back in business from July 1st, with a new name, a new hotel at the helm and a whole new attitude. Hayman Island by InterContinental is almost here, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store.

Following severe damage by Cyclone Debbie back in 2017, InterContinental took over from One & Only hotels and has completed a multi million dollar refurb to bring the 400 hectare private island in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef back to glory.

What can we expect? The big reveal won’t be until doors open on July 1st, but guests are already booking in their holidays because this piece of paradise is too good to pass up visiting.

The famous resort pool is still there, with rooms opening right up to the pool’s edge. There’s now a brand new Beach House, with three suites and private pools, for those after even more privacy.

We have our eyes on the new spa, with thirteen treatment rooms. For those who want to use Hayman as a base for exploring the reef, expect to see plenty of water activities on offer.

When it comes to the food menus, get ready to hear more exciting news about five dining experiences on offer, from poolside all the way to fine dining.

Keep an eye on the blog for more details about this hot new hotel in the Great Barrier Reef.
