Hayman Island by InterContinental Announces Culinary Line-up

The highly anticipated resort will open on 1st July with no less than five restaurant concepts

Ahead of its July opening, Hayman Island by InterContinental has announced five distinct dining experiences for the island, ranging from brasserie-style casual dining to a sophisticated international lobby restaurant.

“Our philosophy is built around giving guests a truly unique restaurant and bar experience across all our venues, mixing the very best of local flavour and global know-how,” said the resort’s recently appointed Director of Restaurants and Bars, Joshua Dows, who is in charge of culinary direction and conceptualisation. “For me, it’s about creating a lasting memory. It is a wonderful pleasure to experiment and uncover dining experiences which reflect not only the heart of the Whitsundays, but experiences filled with fun, distinction and refinement.”

The five distinct dining destinations and bar offerings on the island include:



Pacific is the resort’s signature, brasserie-style bar and restaurant. It offers a gourmet buffet breakfast in the morning and sophisticated a la carte dining into the evening. Designed as a hub of connectivity to both people and island, Pacific will also unveil an oceanfront bar. Pacific at its heart will be a bespoke beverage collection featuring classic cocktails with a contemporary twist, Australia’s best wines, boutique beers and premium spirits.



Perched on the side of the  Hayman Pool, AQUA offers guests a refreshing menu of easy-to-share seafood dishes, tropical fruit juices, fresh salad bowls and classic cocktails.


Amici Trattoria

A blazing wood-fired pizza oven sits at the heart of this casual Italian eatery. The menu features pizza, pasta and an Australian wine list starring Italian grape varietals.


Bam Bam

Full of character and your go-to for bold zesty dishes, Bam Bam serves up PanAsian cuisine infused with a fresh Australian twist. Specialities will include wok-tossed noodles and sugarcane juices, packed with punchy flavours.


Bar Fifty

Set in the heart of the resort’s lobby, Bar Fifty is an international iconic, having served sophisticated cocktails to the globetrotters since the 1950s. Bar Fifty pays careful dedication to its distinguished past, reopening with twists on familiar favourites, classic cocktails, canapés and light bites within a lively hub.
