One&Only Hayman Island on Australia's Great Barrier Reef named to the 2015 Travel+Leisure "It List"

One&Only Hayman Island, the iconic private island resort that was reborn in July 2014 as part of the ultra-luxury One&Only collection, has been named to Travel+Leisure magazine's prestigious "It List."

The results of the 2015 "It List" of the world's best new hotels, resorts, spas and restaurants, as determined by the editors of Travel+Leisure, one of the most respected travel publications in the US, will be published in the March 2015 issue of the magazine. One&Only Hayman Island is the only resort in Australia to be featured on this year's much-anticipated list.

A much-loved resort destination since its original opening in 1950, Hayman Island in Australia's Whitsunday archipelago was reborn last summer as One&Only Hayman Island, following a multi-million dollar refurbishment - and the Travel+Leisure editors have dubbed the resort a "Comeback Queen." The private island resort has established a new level of ultra-luxury in Australia, offering an unsurpassed level of style, choice and personalised exploration. The resort now boasts luxurious accommodations in 160 rooms, suites, villas and penthouses, all designed to embrace the natural beauty of the location. Dining experiences at One&Only Hayman Island range from casual poolside bites, authentic Italian cuisine complete with a high-energy open kitchen to fine-dining at the resort's signature restaurant. The ultimate private dining experiences take place under the stars on a remote beach, accessible by helicopter.

The exclusive One&Only Spa, the first in Australia to incorporate all-natural Amala spa products, features a variety of signature treatments and wellness journeys, along with a Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by the world-renowned Bastien Gonzalez, and a stylish Luc.Espace Salon for hair and beauty. For active guests at One&Only Hayman Island there is the state-of-the-art fitness centre, the signature "Bodyism" program with international health and wellness expert James Duigan, and access to an extensive array of water sports and active adventures on the extraordinary Great Barrier Reef, to which the resort provides unparalleled access.
