Surrounded by the azure Coral Sea and boasting the largest pool in the southern hemisphere, Hayman boutique hotel on the Great Barrier Reef personifies the life aquatic. Bright, light contemporary rooms let the ocean take centre stage, although guests spend most of their time outside, whether snoozing on a sunlounger, being massaged into submission at the spa or partaking in adrenaline-boosting adventures.
Hayman Spa will lull you into a catatonic state. Sure, it has 13 treatment suites and a hydrotherapy room, but it's the ocean-view massage pavilions and massages done while bobbing in the ocean that have us twitching for a relaxing fix.
