Intercontinental Hayman Island Resort

Intercontinental Hayman Island is a private island resort set in the midst of the beautiful Whitsunday archipelago. The 160 contemporary suites, villas and penthouses are spread across three wings and each has either a private balcony or direct access to the gardens or pool.

Six beachside studio villas have their own courtyard plunge pool and the option of a children's room at the rear. The five by three-mile island has the reef and beautiful beaches on its doorstep as well as a whole host of services and facilities, from a beautiful swimming pool to a choice of seven restaurants.

Why we like Intercontinental Hayman Island

Luxurious and remote yet with activities and facilities to keep couples or families extremely happy.

A stay here is very much about relaxation and making the most of the islands, beaches and reefs of the Whitsundays. Sailing and cruising can be organised, as well as a range of motorised and non-motorised sports. Snorkelling and diving are wonderful and for those who prefer to stay above the water there are yoga and Pilates classes, hiking, tennis and golf.

Head out in search of your own private beach for the day with a gourmet picnic.


Located in the far north of the Whitsundays, access to Intercontinental Hayman Island is via Hamilton island airport. Easily reached from most major Australian cities, before a 10-minute seaplane or helicopter ride or a 30-minute boat journey to arrive at the resort.
