Hayman Island, Great Barrier Reef, AustraliaHayman Island has already established itself as one of the most stunning luxury resorts in the world. But soon it’ll come under management by One & Only Resorts, so can you imagine the luxe factor? Come April 2014, the prestigious resort group will take the reins at Hayman, uniquely positioned at the doorstep of one of the world’s greatest natural wonders: Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

According to the official website, Hayman will get a multi-million dollar renovation and be re-launched as One&Only Hayman Island, the first property in Oz for the ultra-luxe brand. They’re promising “unique guest experiences, enhanced accommodations, new culinary options and signature One&Only service throughout the resort.”

Anticipated enhancements include a renewed pool area with cabanas and day beds, a new beauty salon, fitness center, a renovated Pool Wing, and redecorated Hayman rooms and Hayman suites. The best part of all? One&Only dive experts and marine biologists will lead programs to discover the incredible ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef, home to over 33,000 species.
