To be clear, this is an amazing resort. It feels totally 5 star from the moment you get off the plane which is basically an air capable bogan bus and it stays 5 star from there. The plane ride was Jetstar and that was just plain awful, Enough of that. Once your there it all gets very pretty and very... More

I arrived at the airport to be greeted by the Island rep, who advised me that I had been upgraded, and that I would be flying to the island via helicopter, and my room would be upgraded.... The helicopter ride to the island was excellent, and the room was lovely, overlooking the massive big pool. I relaxed in no time... More

We spent our 25th wedding anniversary there in November 2013 before the refurbishment. We took advantage of the deals they were offering before closing down for the renovations which had many inclusions and ended up being very affordable. While it was a bit tired looking we still loved it. Absolutely amazing location, arriving by launch was fantastic, and being shown... More

Let me introduce myself as a discerning traveler who has stayed in some of the most luxurious hotels of the world (Aman, Four Seasons, Rosewood, to name a few). When traveling, I like to pick my hotels by using websites such as Kiwicollection, Conde Nast magazine, Travel & Leisure (see my other reviews and my blog). So I only like... More

Whilst I was contemplating making a reservation at this resort I received very helpful responses by both email and on the telephone. Once I booked and I emailed the resort to request that an itinerary of certain activities be put together before my arrival, sadly I did not receive a response. I had only requested a day or two before,... More

We stayed in a beach side villa - very comfortable and the private sun loungers on the beach are a nice touch. Liam our butler was excellent and extremely helpful. We were last here 17 years ago and One & Only have down an excellent job overseeing the complete refurbishment of the resort. The restaurants are ok( and should be... More

My daughter and I have just spent the five most idyllic days ever at this wonderful resort. Really, it felt more like a grand family home due to the wonderful staff - everyone of them always wore the best of smiles and always managed time for a little chat. In particular the VIP Manager is a stand out. He totally... More

This hotel has some great pluses. The ocean view rooms are excellent (though some are quite a distance from the main hub). Aquazure infinity pool is beautiful with a gorgeous outlook over the ocean and the huge main pool being concentric circles of fresh and salt water with bridges over was a delight.The iced water served to the sunbed was...

We recently stayed for 4 nights. The price was expensive; however the level of service and luxury matched the cost. We had a nice relaxing time; the staff were very friendly and very helpful. Overall it was on the expensive side however my expectations were exceeded and therefore I would recommend Hayman Island One & Only for a couple’s getaway... More
