There really is only one set of resorts around the world that deliver the definitive deluxe experience, and that’s One&Only Hotels and they are opening a new one in Australia’s Great Barrier reef this July.
The Great Barrier Reef is without doubt one of the most spectacular locations on earth, featuring a number of idyllic islands that are just waiting to be discovered. Located on the northernmost point of the Whitsunday archipelago is Hayman Island, a private retreat that is now home to a world class One&Only resort. Here you can dive, explore the sea, and experience the magic of this magnificent slice of paradise.
Robinson Crusoe never had it so good. He didn’t have a seaplane or helicopter to show him the magic of the lush islands below, he never got to dive beneath the sea and explore its magnificent wonderland full of shimmering fish that swim past close enough to reach out and touch. And he never experienced the ultimate luxury – an untouched paradise just waiting to be discovered.
Slip into the warm waters of your private pool as the sun sets on the horizon, delight in the warm tropical breeze as you step on untouched sand in the morning, snorkel or dive through a series of reefs and crystal clear water with the sun high above, or escape to the spa to indulge in a series of rejuvenating treatments.
When it’s time to rest, your haven of extreme luxury awaits, a choice of deluxe accommodation that includes everything from spacious rooms and one and two-bedroom suites to a series of penthouses and villas (one of which was created by the legendary Diane Von Furstenberg), plus a private beach house with its own pool and butler. These are situated in three different areas around the 5-mile island retreat, so that guests can have privacy or access to the beach or the pool, depending on what they prefer. Every type of accommodation has its own special ambience, and each offers extraordinary views of the ever-changing blue sea and the lush surroundings.
Like its sister resorts, this One&Only retreat offers a stunning selection of restaurants, a superb spa, hair and beauty salon and fully equipped fitness center complete with personal trainers.
A stay at a One&Only resort is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Which is why we can’t wait for the opening of the group’s first resort in the Asia Pacific region. And then, once its woven its magic, we will wait with bated breath for more to follow.
