On 1st July 2014, One & Only Resorts launched their newly developed luxurious property in Australia, the One & Only Hayman Island, Great Barrier Reef. The iconic swimming pool has been totally renewed and a selection of luxury Beach Villas designed by well-known architect Kerry Hill with superb sea views.
A wide variety of options are available to reach this beautiful destination. The resort provides seaplane transfers which can be booked directly with the reservation Team. Alternatively, travellers have the option of Private Air or Yacht transfers. With such a beautiful sight of the piercing blue hues of the coral sea, it is not surprising to learn that the favourite amongst travellers is the helicopter transfer which is available from the Great Barrier Reef Airport on Hamilton Island.
The location of the Island is indeed unique with wonderful views of the coral sea and 2km of pure white sandy beach. As one would expect with the location, activities are dominant around the Great Barrier Reef with snorkelling and diving excursions readily available. The Island can be explored on foot to experience the local wildlife and for guest not wishing to get their feet wet, helicopter tours offer magnificent views of the Great Barrier Reef.
