We visited Hayman Island in 2015.......loved the cruise over to the Island, stunning setting, pools were fantastic, tours were also five star. It's the location and isolation you pay for. Some reviews thought it as overpriced...well yes One and Only are all over priced....if you are familiar with the properties they are all expensive however; this setting is spectacular. Sadly....

I was a bit worried given some of the negative reviews, but we had a great experience!! Here are a few of our thoughts... Staff - Rebecca was amazing!! She was so thoughtful and helped us book all of our activities and reservations. She was our personal concierge (included with beach villa, see below) and she made our trip unforgettable!...

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.

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.
