InterContinental to relaunch iconic Hayman Island
Wednesday 22 Aug 2018
InterContinental Hotel Group has announced it will be taking over the iconic hotel on Hayman Island from 2019. Hayman Island by InterContinental will bring a new era of luxury to the Whitsundays.
The only property on the 400-hectare island, the 166-room property will join 47 hotels operating under the IHG brand across Australiasia.
Previously operated by One&Only, the resort was badly damaged by Cyclone Debbie in 2017 and was forced to close for extensive renovations. Official plans have yet to be announced, however the resort is currently accepting bookings from July 2019.
Leanne Harwood, Managing Director, Australasia and Japan, IHG said: “Luxury travellers have long had an affinity with InterContinental Sydney and InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, so we are thrilled to continue their legacy for many years to come. What is particularly special is to now welcome Hayman Island to the IHG family. We could not be more delighted to continue, and strengthen, our partnership with Mulpha Australia as we pursue our expansion plans in Australasia.”
