The most anticipated hotel opening of 2019 is almost here. Reservations are now open, and the excitement is building as InterContinental Hayman Island Resort prepares to welcome guests to Australia's most iconic island resort starting July 1, 2019.

Located on a pristine 988-acre private island, the 166-room luxury resort has undergone a spectacular, multi-million-dollar refurbishment to ensure guests will experience a truly immersive stay in one of the world's most unique and iconic destinations.

Managed by InterContinental Hotels Group® (IHG), one of the world's leading hotel companies, the resort will introduce a fresh concept of immersive luxury to travelers, offering a truly unique stay experience for those who will touch down on Hayman's unforgettable shores. It will feature new, world-class restaurants and bars alongside a plethora of bespoke experiences for guests including a new spa and unrivalled meetings and event spaces.

Nestled in the world-renowned surrounds of the Whitsundays, InterContinental Hayman Island Resort will invite guests to enjoy stunning on-island experiences and all the private oasis has to offer, from secluded beach coves and jet ski adventures, to iconic seaplane rides boasting breath-taking views of the Great Barrier Reef. InterContinental Hayman Island Resort is guaranteed to have something to suit all travelers, from the adventurer to the luxuriously laid back.

Mark Eletr, Resort Manager at InterContinental Hayman Island Resort says: "Opening our unique paradise in the Whitsundays to the world under InterContinental's trusted brand is a true privilege. Hayman Island continues to capture the hearts of domestic and international travelers and we are thrilled to announce that on July 1 our doors will open and a new chapter of immersive luxury awaits".

The resort has announced that five innovative dining experiences will be revealed for guests to enjoy and experience on-island, inspired by fresh Queensland flavors with a contemporary menu design. From poolside, luxurious fare to exciting and bold evening dining, the new offerings will delight and surprise guests, catering to a range of ages and lifestyles.

The room configurations will encompass 166 stylish accommodation options across three distinct wings, spanning from luxurious suites and beachfront villas to lagoon and poolside rooms. The newly built Beach House is an exquisite addition to the accommodation selection, offering guests a private slice of Hayman heaven with three suites and multiple private pools. In addition to the hotel, a new collection of once-in-a-lifetime, luxury private residences will be available to rent for those who want to experience a more private piece of paradise on Hayman Island. Perched on the hilltops of the island overlooking its iconic bay the stunning properties, whilst being fully private, will also have full access to all the resort has to offer, ensuring each guest is fully immersed into island life.

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
