InterContinental to take over Hayman from One&Only

The Whitsundays Island Hayman is set to be rebranded an InterContinental Resort after its previous operator, the Kerzner Group’s high-profile One&Only Group, cut ties with the island’s owner.

Hayman Island will be rebranded an InterContinental Resort when it reopens after a massive renovation due to the damage sustained from Cyclone Debbie.

It is currently accepting reservations from 1st March 2019 but hopes to be welcoming guests from late 2018.

The high-profile Great Barrier Reef resort had been rebranded a One&Only resort in 2014 amid much fanfare following an $80 million refurbishment.

Hayman Island’s owner, ­Malaysian conglomerate Mulpha Australia, offered up the management rights to its portfolio last year.

The Australian reported three parties were short-listed for the prized management rights to its four eastern seaboard hotels and resorts.

The American hotel giant Marriott was among the short-listed, but incumbent operator IHG successfully won the rights to the Mulpha properties and will continue to operate the Sydney and Sanctuary Cove resort hotels under the InterContinental brand.

Mulpha’s Rydges Hotel in Cairns would remain under a Rydges hotel.
