Sponsored by InterContinental Hotels Group

Hayman Island by InterContinental represents a new era of immersive luxury in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

And to celebrate, Hayman Island by InterContinental is offering agents the chance to win a three-night stay for two in one of Australia’s most iconic private island resorts with an exclusive trade incentive.

Among Australia’s most iconic private atoll resorts, Hayman Island – which opened in July – is one of only four of the Whitsundays to offer resort accommodation, and the nearest of the islands to the outer reef.

From the moment travellers step off their seaplane, helicopter or luxury yacht, they will discover a tranquil destination of privacy and pampering. Furthermore, whether diving the Great Barrier Reef, basking in a private pool, or sailing the Coral Sea, guests are spoiled for further outdoor choices on Hayman Island.

As well as commanding magnificent views – as standard throughout the Whitsundays – south across the Coral Sea, Hayman Island by InterContinental also enjoys an ideal climate year-round, with average temperatures between 25°C and 31°C all-year round.

The 294-hectare (726 acre) island, at eight kilometres (five miles) in circumference, also hosts stunning, white beaches on a two-kilometre crescent-shaped stretch of sand.

Inland, the island boasts 168 beautifully appointed rooms, suites, villas and the halo residence: the Three-Bedroom Hayman Beach House. From sophisticated sea-facing escapes to lush garden sanctuaries, each world-class residence is a magnificent blend of intuitive design and taste.
