Being part of the IHG family of Hotels and Resorts, the safety and well-being of our guests and community is paramount.

Due to the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus, please do not plan to travel to Hamilton Island (or Coral Sea Marina) and onward to Hayman Island if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • If you have been in a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days or since the hotspot was declared (whichever is shorter).
  • If you have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19. Please follow all Queensland Health guidelines and isolate yourself for 14 days from the date of last contact with the confirmed case.
  • All travellers who have been in New Zealand since 21 February 2021 are recommended to get tested and isolate until you have your results. This applies to anyone who has entered from 6 February 2021 who has not already had a test after entering Queensland. 

From 12:01am 12 January 2021 Queensland Health’s Mandatory Face Masks Direction requires all guests to wear face masks within Queensland Airports and on domestic commercial flights. This includes all areas of the Hamilton Island Airport precinct (Including the Luggage Collection Area & Pontoon) and onboard any helicopter transfers to and from Hayman Island.

InterContinental Hayman Island Resort reserves the right to cancel the booking or deny access to anyone who chooses to travel to InterContinental Hayman Island Resort within a mandated self-quarantine period or is found to be untruthful about the above declaration. If you do arrive on Hayman Island within a mandated self-quarantine period, you will be immediately transferred to our Medical Centre for assessment prior to being moved to a quarantine accommodation facility for a period of time as directed by the Medical Officer, at your own expense.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation whilst we endeavour to protect our guests and community during this time. These are temporary measures, following the guidelines issues by the Australian Government and Queensland Government that are being reviewed on a daily basis.
