After being closed for two years following damage from Cyclone Debbie in 2017 and a multi-million dollar refurbishment, the former One & Only Hayman Island resort will reopen on July 1 as the InterContinental Hayman Island Resort.

Hayman is a private island open to the public. The resort was opened in 1950 as the Royal Hayman Hotel by millionaire Reg Ansett, who also founded Ansett Airways, later Ansett Australia, in 1936.

Located in the Great Barrier Reef, the 988-acre (400-hectare) island provides guests with easy access to Heart Reef and what is considered one of the best beaches in the world, Whitehaven Beach.
The 166-key resort offers rooms, suites, and villas spread over three wings. The Pool Wing features suites perched over the Hayman Pool with direct swim-out access, while the Beach Wing features views of the sandy white beach and Coral Sea. The Lagoon Wing on the east side of the resort features a mixture of mountain views and tropical landscapes.

Guest dining options will include five new restaurants and bars, which range from brasserie-style modern Australian to casual Italian and pan-Asian fare. The hotel will reportedly brew its own kombucha, a fermented, slightly alcoholic tea.

The Hayman Spa offers a variety of treatments in its 13 rooms as well as sunrise yoga and meditation classes.

The resort has a variety of meeting and event spaces including the Langford Room, which accommodates 330 guests, and three outdoor spaces that can each seat 330 guests.
