Improve value for money. We were told hat a decision had been made to downgrade from fine dining/five star to a more casual experience, which is absolutely fine, however the prices remain five star, raising expectations that everything will be of highest quality. This is definitely not the case!

Having stayed at the One&Only in Dubai and several other ultra luxury hotels around the world, we booked this O&O and anticipated to spend 4 nights in heaven as part of our 2 week Australia trip. However, it turned into being the worst hotel stay we have ever had mainly due to extremely poor service level. First evening we had...

The One & Only Hayman Island is a lovely resort with beautiful views! We loved the water and the pool. We arrived by helicopter from the airport...incredible way to see the resort! We had a great scuba/snorkel excursion from the hotel with fun, professional dive masters. We saw incredible aquatic life, including several playful whales! Another unforgettable excursion was the...

We had an unbelievable few nights for our honeymoon at the One and Only Hayman Island. It was the ultimate in luxury - from the most attentive and friendly staff to the opulent surroundings. It was the trip of a lifetime, made all the more special by them helping us celebrate our honeymoon in style. Could not recommend this place...

This included a $500 food and beverage voucher, $100 towards a spa treatment and a Island Escape tour for 2(valued$140) Transfers cost $420pp return on their...

Amazing experience at Hayman. From when the plane lands at Hamilton Island, you dont need to think about anything except relaxing. The staff are exceptional and no request is too much trouble. Great variety of activities are available and the tours of the Great Barrier Reef are beyond belief. We cant wait to return to the One & Only Hayman.

The premises seem a little tired, but room was decorated well. The staff are friendly, but few managers were there to be seen at peak season. It's basic things they need to do better - buffet breakfast was cold two days in a row, with rather poor amateur excuses offered. Availability on tours was limited, minimal shampoo or shower gels...

Without a doubt this would be one of my favorite hotels that I have ever stayed at. Upon arrival we were welcomed by the staff, who were extremely friendly. The resort is absolutly spectacular, our room was modern and luxurious. The water activities are definitely a must. I look forward to returning to Hayman island again for this amazing experience!!

Hayman Island is a beautiful island. The views are spectacular. Truly picture perfect. Transfers from the airport and back were swift, efficient, and very comfortable. My compliments to the Food and Beverage team as they were extremely friendly and helpful. A few issues arouse that the Guest Service team took note off and tried to make it up. They have...
