Hayman Island Resort in Australia
Rather than catching a plane after the big day, why not stroll to your honeymoon following an outdoor ceremony overlooking the Coral Sea? Or you might say "I do" at Hayman Island Resort's Stella Maris Chapel, with its breathtaking views of Whitsunday Passage and the neighboring islands. Whatever your style, you will find it here, from a perfect wedding venue to that special room for your first night as Mr. and Mrs. — a beach villa with private pool and butler service, perhaps, or a designer penthouse gazing over the water. Here on the Great Barrier Reef, there are no wrong choices. So kick back, relax and spend an afternoon together on the golf course, explore area reefs by seaplane, indulge in a Hayman Gourmet moment in a rainforest grove or retire to the Beach Pavilion for a bottle of fine Australian wine and sunset views.
