What can I say. If you are after rest and relaxation, this is the place to be. We stayed at hayman for 5 nights. We were upgraded to the helicopter transfer on arrival at hamilton island which was a great start. For 2 nights we stayed in the hayman wing, Hayman partial ocean view room which was nice and spacious, overlooking the lake and the new pool area which opened a couple of weeks ago. The new pool area is amazing, lots of little pools with plenty of deck chairs available and staff around to help out with your needs. On walking across to the pool wing, we saw the iconic hayman pool which is just amazing along with the swim out rooms, and decided to upgrade to a swim out. The rooms are amazing, really big, bathroom is great, dressing room area not so great but not a big deal in the scheme of things. Sitting out in the swim deck, overlooking the pool, reading a book, enjoying the music played from the pool cafe is just heaven if that's what you like to do on holidays. The other perk you get with these rooms are a personal butler. Christine was lovely and was always available to help us out with anything we needed. The weather at this time of year is amazing too. (October). The restaurants are ok. We have eaten at Amici which has great authentic wood fired pizza and is reasonably priced. Bamboo, which has asian cuisine was also nice. We had the wagyu beef and tooth fish as mains which were very nice. A little more expensive than amici. Another night we went to pacific for the cold seafood buffet. Was ok. Probably wouldn't go there again but others may like it. Breakfast is great. Lots of variety and fresh although it would be fantastic if they did scrambled eggs to order. The staff and service is great. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. No complaints there. There are plenty of water activities, snorkelling or walking tracks if you feel the need. Not a lot of shopping to be had by the ladies as there is only one boutique but that's probably a good thing for us shopaholics. All in all a lovely relaxing holiday in a great resort in a lovely location.
