Overall a great experience. Water Sports staff was amazing-we had both amazing dives and snorkel trips. The crews were very knowledgeable and the groups were kept small. The resort was still under construction in some areas and some of the staff still seemed to be "in training". There is no option for all inclusive but absolutely nowhere else to eat-the...

I recently stayed at the newly renovated Hayman One & Only Resort with my partner over the Oct long weekend for his surprise Birthday. And what a surprise it was! Only opened in July & you can really see everything sparkling. Such an improvement to what it was only 3 years ago. We were also so lucky with the weather...

Heavenly, luxurious resort which we hope to return to. My partner and I stayed for three nights over the first weekend in October for my 30th. Transfers: The trip started off well when we were upgraded with a helicopter transfer from Airlie Beach. A great way to see the Whitsunday islands. The trip was smooth and quick. We were also...

This is a 6-star resort that adorns a fabulous situation in the Whitsundays. The renovated accommodation is superb with service to match. When it comes to cuisine, think elegant comfort food not high end excitement. And whatever you do, forget value for money - this resort is not cheap! But well worth a visit.

It was time for some much needed R&R, and so my husband and I decided to spoil ourselves with a holiday to the One & Only, Hayman Island. After hearing much hype about the recent renovations and considering the name, our expectations were high. Upon touching down in Hamilton Island, we were greeted by the O&O staff and led to...

WOW! Our first thoughts as our One and Only boat transfer approached this first class resort. The service, food, facilities, pool and beach area were all first class.

From the moment you are greeted from your arrival transportation, ours was by sea plane, your holiday begins.

We spent 5 days on Hayman with our children and their families and were truly impressed by it's re-badging as a One&Only. As on our previous visits, the staff were welcoming, obliging and cheerful and one got the impression that they were happy to be there, loved and took pride in their work. There was a genuine interest on the...

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...
