What is a great Australia luxury resort hotel?

Australia Luxury Resort Hotel: The Hayman

The Hayman is Australia's most celebrated private island destination, beautifully situated in the magnificent Great Barrier Reef and presenting an array of unique and memorable resort and Reef experiences.

Surrounded by coral-fringed beaches and waters of the Coral Sea on the southwestern side of the island, Hayman offers 228 guest rooms, suites, penthouses and a beach villa. The accommodations, restaurants, guest service areas, marine facilities and operational plan were created to blend in with the natural beauty of the surroundings. No part of the resort is higher than four stories and shady ponds and gentle waterfalls thread their way among beautiful gardens, spacious walkways and open air lanais.

A Hayman team member will greet you on arrival at Great Barrier Reef Airport and arranges for the transfer of guest luggage from flights to the connecting launch, seaplane and helicopter transfers to Hayman. On arrival at Hayman, the luggage will be delivered directly to the guest room, suite, villa or penthouse.

La Fontaine, with Louis XVI furnishings, Waterford crystal chandeliers and a magnificent central limestone fountain makes for a gorgeous dining setting. Modern European cuisine is served, using local and international produce. The La Fontaine wine cellar offers more 750 vintages from the world's premier vineyards. Make sure to try the weekly Chef's Table, when you can go behind the scenes into the main kitchen for a six-course banquet with matching wines and includes a visit to the La Fontaine wine cellar and chocolate room.

Spa Chakra Hayman is part of Guerlain-Spa Chakra Alliance - a luxury spa network created by Spa Chakra Inc. and Guerlain Paris. It has received a number of prestigious awards, including the UK Conde Nast Readers' Spa Awards in 2007. The spa offers an exclusive selection of personally-tailored beauty and well-being programs designed to restore wellness and balance.

Deluxe Touch
Instead of flying to the island, take the one-hour luxury launch from the mainland. Hayman operates a fleet of white cruisers, beautifully appointed and provide a unique start and finale to your vacation. During the launch crossing of the Whitsunday Passage from Great Barrier Reef Airport to Hayman, refreshments are served and all check-in formalities are completed enabling guests to be personally escorted to their room directly upon arrival at the island.
