The Hayman resort is a luxury hotel located on the private island of Hayman on the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. Stretching over an area of 726 acres, this extravagant accommodation consists of 210 rooms, suites, penthouses, beach villas and a beach house. The Hayman resort also includes one of the largest swimming pools in the South Pacific. Apart from the saltwater pool, the hotel has two more freshwater pools, so visitors can choose the one in which they want to freshen up, if they are not in the mood for swimming in the beautiful Coral Sea which surrounds them.
All accommodations have an excellent view of the sea, offering great comfort, so making a mistake while choosing a room to stay is not likely. For example, Beach Villas have their own private plunge pools, daybeds, outdoor showers, changing areas with double sinks and large tubs, and even an Apple TV with movie and cable channels, which in a place like this is probably unnecessary. All of that makes Beach Villas the most luxurious accommodation at the Hayman island resort. We should also mention that the Hayman hotel is Australia’s most awarded resort, and that it has recently been renovated with the help of Kerry Hill, a renowned hotel design specialist.
One might think that three large pools, beautiful sea, white sand beaches, lush vegetation, botanical garden and fully equipped rooms and suites are just enough for a perfect vacation, but when it comes to Hayman, there is more. The resort organizes weddings, diving, snorkeling and sightseeing excursions, it also offers honeymoon packages and many other activities, having a spa, hiking trails, tennis and basketball courts, a golf course and squash court. Of course, such energy draining activities require a hefty meal, but at Hayman’s, that’s not a problem, since it has seven restaurants, each with a different menu.
Azure restaurant is specialized for buffet breakfast, including eggs, meat, muffins, cereals and fruits. On certain evenings the Hayman Grill is served, so guests can enjoy lobsters, oysters, king prawns, blue swimmer crabs and mussels.
Located in the middle of a tropical garden, the Oriental restaurant is a place where you can eat exotic specialties of Indian, Thai, Japanese and Chinese cuisines.
Of course, for the lovers of the traditional and local cuisine, there is the Fountaine, which serves Australian specialties.
And if you have packed for a picnic, the Hayman Gourmet will supply you with a tasty lunch to go. During the day, it also serves lunch, snacks and drinks by the pool.
Only a few hours away from Sidney, Melbourne and Brisbane, but still in the beauty of perfect Australian nature, surrounded by astonishing Coral sea, the Hayman resort is a place where everyone would truly enjoy. watch video below
