InterContinental Hayman Island Resort launches a new series of events, ‘Signature Events at Hayman’ with an inaugural ‘Elevate Wellness Weekend’ from 27-30 October 2023. Renowned for its stunning natural beauty, Hayman Island will provide an idyllic setting for guests to enjoy an immersive luxury experience with a curated program designed to nourish the mind, body, and spirit.
InterContinental Hayman Island Resort General Manager, Arpad Romandy said “Launching our event series with a wellness weekend made sense on so many levels. Wellness Tourism is consistently one of the fastest growing tourism segments and travellers around the world are increasingly turning to travel for mental and physical wellbeing.”
“The resorts’ location within the Great Barrier Reef – one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, is very conducive to a restorative wellness weekend. Our guests will have the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect through a series of workshops, events, outdoor activities, and bespoke healthy dining menus within Hayman’s luxury resort setting,” said Mr Romandy.
The Elevate Wellness Weekend is a tailored 3-day program in partnership with wellness outfit, ‘Vibrate Your Mind’, where guests will be immersed in a transformative journey towards holistic wellness and serenity with sound, music, yoga, meditation and breathwork practices.
Guests can choose a sunrise or sunset hike, connect to nature in the morning with a rainforest meditation, participate in an island escapade, snorkel the surrounding coral gardens or simply soak up the pristine beaches.
Over the course of the weekend, guest facilitators including former INXS frontman and Grammy award nominated songwriter, Ciaran Gribbin, world leading meditation facilitator and recording artist Susan Quirke, sound healer and kinesiologist Matty Rainbow and renowned yogini Seriya Cutbush, will run a series of experiences, workshops, and events.
Susan will lead the sunrise and sunset meditations, Matty and Seriya are facilitating sound healing, breathwork and yoga experiences, and Ciaran is offering the opportunity for a one-on one song writing session and will perform INXS songs in an ‘Intimate and Unplugged’ session.
The focus on wellness extends to the culinary offering with guests dining on bespoke menus with an emphasis on fresh produce, healthy eating and sustainability and there will be special offers in the resort’s newly opened Elemis Hayman® Spa.
