If a holiday on a luxury Whitsunday island is on your agenda, come and try Hayman Island for a slice of life in the lap of luxury. Hayman Island has been one of the most visited islands in the Whitsundays for generations and has a history that goes back as far as the nineteen twenties. There have been several resorts, built, demolished, rebuilt and refurbished over that time and the resort has developed a reputation for providing excellence in both accommodation, service and food. Today, Hayman Island is a member of the top hotels of the world and is about to engage in another rebuilding program with all the beachfront accommodation being demolished and replaced with new, state of the art accommodation.
Over the years, and especially since the days when Sir Reginald Ansett built the Royal Hayman Hotel on the island, Hayman Island has been known to always provide a quality experience. In the early 1990's, Hayman Island was given a total rebuild without reference to the expense. The island was rebuilt in a fashion that oozed affluence and the new accommodation and restaurants were constructed around the biggest swimming pool in the district. Acres of marble were utilised and this construction still is there today. Some guests feel that Hayman is now a little dated however after you have stayed you leave with a feeling that although the decor is now a little old fashioned, it was built with such quality that it is almost timeless. Everything else cannot be faulted. from the quality of the food in the restaurants, to the service and the facilities, Hayman island always dots its I's and crosses its T's.
The accommodation is in two wings. One overlooks the huge swimming pool while the other has lagoon frontage and they are named after the water they overlook. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the floors, as you would expect, are all marble. Each has a comfortable balcony and you need to careful of the local feathered friends in the guise of many Sulphur Crested Cockatoo's that will enter your room at the drop of a hat and help themselves to the contents of the nuts and chips in the mini bar. There are four restaurants and you can pick according to your taste for the night. Hayman is now the most popular wedding destination in the Whitsundays and the management have provided everything possible in the way of services and facilities to ensure that these run without a hitch. From a dedicated staff member to manage your wedding arrangements, right down to the smallest detail, you can be sure that nothing will be left to chance.
