Visit the Great Barrier Reef at the Hayman Island Resort

Hayman Island Resort is a much-awarded luxury resort located on a private island in Australia. It is the place you want to go if you are setting out to see the Great Barrier Reef or just plan to enjoy some leisure or adventure time at the resort. The resort has recently been renovated after sustaining a hit from two tropical cyclones. Everything is now perfectly restored and you can enjoy all that the resort has to offer.

In the restorations, the groundskeepers created a new botanical garden that houses at least 33,000 different plants with at least 325 new species of plants. The gardens expand over 16 hectares and are great place to see beautiful flowers and plants native to the area. Birds, butterflies and other nature species can be seen in a walk in the gardens. The gardens were designed by a well-respected landscape designer by the name of Jamie Durie.

Restaurants abound on the resort. There is even a beachfront restaurant and the newly designed Fontaine, a signature resort restaurant you won't want to miss. Visit also the La Trattoria restaurant or the Oriental restaurant for a taste feast of many different kinds of cuisines.

The Hayman Island Resort is a great place for sporting activities. There is a walking trail that's been laid out since the typhoons and a well-lit tennis court area for you to play when you want to. For those into personal training, there is a personal training room open for workouts when the weather is bad or during those early morning or late night workout sessions. Then relax at the Hayman Island Spa in which you can get massages and other healthful therapies.

Don't forget the resort's close location to the Great Barrier Reef. This might be your only real destination to Hayman Island and we make sure you can get there and can enjoy your time in the water. The resort offers fly in and boating in to the Great Barrier Reef and tours you can enjoy anytime.

A new part of the resort is called the Kerry Hill-designed Beach Villas so you can enjoy life right at the beach. Wake up and go to bed with the sounds of the ocean nearby and enjoy all that the rest of the resort has to offer.
