I love almost everything about this revamped resort, but what I found disappointing was the restaurants. You have to eat at the resort - there are no other options - but after two days we were were struggling to find something different to eat from the expensive and only adequate choices. If there was more choice it would be okay,...

My experiences generally with service in Australian 'resorts' (including international chains) haven't been the best and usually correlates with whether you 'look the part'. Not here on Hayman. Nothing was too hard and yes, there was service with a smile and a genuine desire and effort to listen and get things right for guests. I think the high number of...

We’ve just returned from a long weekend at Hayman Island and we were impressed. This was our third visit to the resort, the first nearly 20 years ago. Back then the resort was really dated (think 80’s décor) but very well maintained. Then about 8 years ago we revisited (after a renovation) and I was pretty disappointed – the makeover...

I don’t believe there are enough superlatives to describe the One & Only Hayman Island! My mother and I recently spent 6 nights on Hayman Island and our stay was simply perfect. We had previously visited the island in the early 90’s and were even more impressed this time. The most memorable aspect of our visit was by far the...

The facilities are definitely 5 star. The gardens, common areas, sporting and spa facilities are all high class.The Aquazure pool and restaurant just finished as we were leaving and looks great. The rooms are spacious, private and well decorated. The staff are well dressed polite and obliging. What sets them apart is that in the areas that they did fall...

I stayed here for three nights with my 15 year old son and 11 year old daughter. The service was extraordinarily good - we had a personal butler assigned to look after us and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a pool access room which was great as it allowed the kids to swim in the pool to...

Spent 8 incredible days at the newly refurbished One&Only. The resort is luxurious and we couldn't have been happier. The Staff were friendly, polite and very accommodating. Enjoyed a relaxing 2 hour couples massage which was well worth the cost. The choice of restaurants and room service was first class. Can't wait to visit again.

We stayed at Hayman Island Room 232 for 9 Nights. The new rooms are excellent. We had a two bedroom pool side suite. Very large and well appointed. The walk to Blue pearl bay was great but that's where it stops. Hayman Island don't promote yourself as a family destination as myself and many others that we met would disagree....

This was the best of the best that is yet still affordable for the slightly above average income Joe. We took a multi-million dollar yacht ride to paradise. It was a holiday high from the moment we stepped on the dock to weeks after we got home. Sandbar snorkeling with picnics, daily sailing, Great Barrier Reef adventure by yacht, pontoon...

We had three nights at the new One&Only and our regret was that we did not book to stay longer. This is a true luxury resort with a wondrous holiday ambience. The island is packed full with varied activities to explore, an island oasis for you to explore at your own pace. Scheduled and included activities were well organised, including...
