I'd been to Hayman island previously for a beautiful wedding before it was run by One and Only and was keen to return and stay longer. That's why we chose it for our one year wedding anniversary. Getting a "deal" paying roughly $1000 a night. We'd stayed at Qualia on Hamilton island last year so we're expecting a similar standard...

Having stayed at Hayman every year for the past 27 years it has finally time to call it quits.Hayman has rapidly gone backwards since One&Only took control.As with all other negative reviews,the staff are mostly backpackers with no idea,food/beveridge prices ridiculous,housekeeping also backpackers with no idea and finally the transfer just gets more ridiculous each year with the price and...

I had read some trip advisor reviews leading up to our trip so we were not sure what to expect. What we did experience was nothing short of amazing! From the moment we arrived at Hamilton Island Airport we were met with fantastic smiling service which continued through the entire 5 night stay. The launch although a bit on the...

We had an incredible honeymoon at Hayman Island. The resort was stunning and despite concerns about the stingers at the beach, we still had an amazing time both at the resort and on our activities. We will definitely be back and will also be visiting the other One&Only resorts!

Had a short two-night stay at Hayman, courtesy of a very giving family member. Stayed in a 'Retreat' villa, which was just beautiful. The Pool Wing rooms looked spectacular, but you do pay top dollar for them. The Pool Wing pool was stunning and my favourite place to relax on the island. We were led to believe the resort was...

Our travel to the island was seamless with wonderful staff at Hamilton Island Airport and on the boat. The cruise to the island is luxurious with sparkling rose and pleasant staff. Check in is also completed on the boat. Staff on arrival and throughout our stay were great (except one general who 'demanded rules be followed' every time we came...

We loved our stay at Hayman Island Resort. The staff, food and comfort of the resort is everything we expected and more. We did book this trip through Luxury Escapes but at not time were we treated any differently to any other guests. It is expensive but you get what you pay for and we felt this was worth the...

I visited this hotel once before around 7 years ago. I was worried when I arrived that I wouldn't enjoy it as much the second time around but boy was I wrong. I have had the most perfect 5 night stay. Everything about this resort is managed so well. Being in hospitality myself, I can be a little fussy and...

While this is at the 'higher end' of the market and all prices reflect that, this is a wonderful place to visit and worth the money. The staff are superb.
