From the moment guests’ feet hit the sand, they will be immersed in a world of unique island experiences, where exploring the world-famous Heart Reef by air, turquoise swirls of Whitehaven Beach by boat or remote rainforest mountains by foot is just the beginning.

Set to redefine luxury island living, the resort offers 166 beautifully-appointed rooms, suites and villas spread across three distinct resort wings, artfully intertwined with spectacular pools, panoramic seascapes and tropical gardens. The newly built Three Bedroom Hayman Beach House is the prestigious highlight of the island’s luxury accommodation selection, with the private residence nestled on Hayman’s beachfront boasting contemporary open-living, spectacular views across the Coral Sea and a private pool and master ensuite in each guest room. 
While staying at the resort, explore a diverse gastronomic scene designed to capture the essence of connectivity and the heart of Queensland’s local flavour with a collection of five distinct dining experiences on Hayman Island: Pacific, Aqua, Amici Trattoria, Bam Bam and Bar Fifty.
