Hayman is one of the reef’s big, historic resorts, with 209 guest rooms, 350 employees, acres of marble flooring, four dining venues, and three bars. In 1936, the American novelist Zane Grey filmed "White Death" on the island, and in 1970 the resort was severely damaged by a cyclone. After the it reopened six months later, 650,000 trees and shrubs were introduced to the island. The once-before-I-die icon has been accepting paying guests since 1959, when the accommodations were basic cabins. Today, rooms facing the seven-times-Olympic-size swimming pool—so gigantic it loses 1,500 gallons of water in evaporation and runoff per day—have terraces that jut into the water, so you can jump right in from your bed. Are the pools a little splashy? Yes. Are they fun? Absolutely.


Room to Book:

From the terraces of the Pool Access rooms, you can climb directly into the pool.

Insider Tip:

Take advantage of the complimentary guide-led tours of the kitchen area, which includes the Chocolate Room and wine cellar.
