How to experience Australia’s most iconic private island resort re-imagined.
The Whitsunday Islands will welcome a new era of high-end hospitality in 2019 with the signing of a management agreement that will see IHG take over management of Hayman Island, rebranding it as Hayman Island, by InterContinental.
“The Whitsundays Island Hayman is set to be rebranded an InterContinental Resort after its previous operator, the Kerzner Group’s high-profile One&Only Group, cut ties with the island’s owner,” wrote propertyobserver.
“Hayman Island, located in the Whitsunday Islands, has long been known as one of the nation’s most luxurious destinations after it was constructed by Australian businessman and aviator Sir Reg Ansett in the 1950s.” commented theurbandeveloper.
The 166-room hotel is the only property on the 400-hectare island and will showcase world-class facilities, rooms and suites in one of the world’s most unique locations, accessible via Hamilton Island and then by either luxury vessel or helicopter. In addition to the hotel, Mulpha Australia Limited will offer a bespoke collection of homes for sale.
The landmark agreement with Mulpha Australia Limited also sees IHG continue with a long-term agreement to manage both InterContinental Sydney and InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.
