One&Only Hayman Island, a private island resort in Australia's Great Barrier Reef, will officially open its doors on July 1 after a major multimillion-dollar refurbishment.
Almost half of the accommodations at the resort comes are suites, villas or penthouses. The newly designed Pool Wing has been upgraded to an all-suite space, each overlooking the One&Only Hayman Pool and with views of the Coral Sea. Pool Wing Suites have separate living and dining areas as well as decks, with each pool level suite offering direct swim-out access.
The One&Only Hayman Wing has a series of one-, two- and three-bedroom Penthouse Residences, including one created exclusively by iconic fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg.
A collection of Kerry Hill-designed Beach Villas and the freestanding private Beach House are a good option for those who prefer to be directly on the beach. In their new One&Only configuration, the beach villas not only offer private pools and direct access to One&Only Hayman Beach, but are also partnered with Retreat Rooms located directly behind to accommodate larger groups.
The One&Only Hayman Pool has private cabanas and daybeds and offers all-day dining at the On the Rocks restaurant and bar. The resort has also opened the Aquazure Pool with family friendly cabanas and an infinity-edge pool with a zero entry for children.
