IHG to Take Over Luxurious Hayman Island Resort in Whitsunday Islands, Australia

IHG has signed a management agreement that will see it take over management of Hayman Island resort in the Whitsunday Islands, rebranding it as Hayman Island, by InterContinental.

Hayman Island, by InterContinental will open in 2019 following a refurbishment. The resort previously operated as the One&Only Hayman Island Resort but was closed after Tropical Cyclone Debbie hit the island. The property is currently accepting reservations from 1 March 2019 but is hoping to start welcoming guests from late 2018 - early 2019.

The 166-room hotel, the only property on the 400-hectare island, is accessible via Hamilton Island and then by either boat or helicopter.

In addition to the resort, Mulpha Australia Limited will offer a bespoke collection of homes for sale to those who want to own a piece of heaven on Hayman Island.

The landmark agreement with Mulpha Australia Limited also sees IHG continue with a long-term agreement to manage both InterContinental Sydney and InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.

A significant refurbishment project will take place at InterContinental Sydney over the coming years. It will be the first major upgrade since opening, and it is anticipated to add event spaces, including a grand ballroom, that will show off the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House panoramas to anyone fortunate enough to visit.

Under the new agreement, InterContinental Sanctuary Cove will also get a refurbishment that will see it continue its legacy as one of Queensland’s most prestigious hotels.

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.”

IHG currently has 47 hotels operating under four brands across Australasia: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express with a further 19 in the pipeline including Hotel Indigo and EVEN Hotels.
