InterContinental Hayman Island Resort
Because adventure junkies still like to rest their heads on fine linens, there's the InterContinental Hayman Island Resort. Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the 166-room hotel is primed for aquatic activities. Spend the day exploring the ocean snorkeling, scuba diving, or on an underwater sea scooter. For those who like to stay above the surface, there's fishing experiences, paddleboard tours, jet ski excursions, and kayak cruises or save your energy and survey the island from a seaplane or helicopter. Guests can refuel poolside at Aquatic before settling in for some pre-dinner drinks at Bar Fifty. There are also three other on-site dining destinations offering anything from wood-fire pizzas to Wok-tossed noodles.
