Hayman Island is a veritable paradise. It is the northern most of the Whitsunday archipelago and was famously chosen by Sir Reginald Ansett in the 1940’s to host one of the world’s most lavish resorts.

Today the $300 million 5 Star resort stands as impressive as ever, with scores of awards under its belt from Australia’s Leading Resort 2017, 2016, 2014 to Australasia’s Leading Family Resort 2013, 2012, 2011 as well as a list as long as your arm of nominated awards.

Once you set down on this slice of paradise you’ll see why. The placement of the resort was chosen and designed specifically to blend into the surrounding rainforest covered hills. The rooms wrap around the ostentatious lagoon pool that overlooks the coral sea lapping at the white sand shores of Hayman. One look and you’ll agree: this is the definition of luxury island paradise.

Getting to Hayman Island

You can arrive at the island via boat transfer (while sipping complimentary champaigne) from Hamilton Island or fly from Proserpine via seaplane or helicopter.
  1. Relax by the Pool
The spectacular lagoon pool is possibly the most famous feature of the island! It features an array of cabanas, sun beds, and private nooks as well as direct beach access. Can you imagine a better place to sip cocktails and watch the kids enjoy themselves?
