InterContinental Hayman Island Resort is launching a series of signature events spanning health and wellness, food and beverage, and more to enhance its guest experience.

Kicking off with the inaugural Elevate Wellness Weekend from October 27-30, 2023, the resort will offer a curated program centred around improving wellbeing. “Launching our event series with a wellness weekend made sense on so many levels,” said InterContinental Hayman Island Resort General Manager, Arpad Romandy. “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 three-day program includes a series of workshops, events, outdoor activities, and bespoke healthy dining menus within the luxury resort. Through a partnership with wellness outfit, ‘Vibrate Your Mind’, guests can experience sound therapy, music, yoga, meditation and breathwork practices. There is also the option of a sunrise or sunset hike, a morning rainforest meditation, and snorkelling in the surrounding waters. Guest facilitators including former INXS front man and Grammy award nominated songwriter, Ciaran Gribbin, 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.
Gribbin will offer a one-on-one song writing session and will perform INXS songs in an ‘intimate and unplugged’ session, Quirke will lead the sunrise and sunset meditations, while Rainbow and Cutbush will facilitate sound healing, breathwork and yoga experiences. Bespoke menus will centre around fresh produce, healthy eating and sustainability, and the resort’s newly opened Elemis Hayman Spa will have special offers available.
