I like to hang out in Sydney's inner and Eastern suburbs discovering the newest/best restaurants & cafes. Also enjoy getting to Melbourne occassionally to check out their dining scene. Good produce, great cooking and efficient service a must for any dining establishment.

We booked at Pool Suite and it was stunning ? on 2nd floor overlooking the large pool. The suite design is spacious (used to be two rooms years back) and beautifully appointed. I?m not a fan of having exposed bathrooms in the bedroom but it worked ok as the shower and toilet are separate, with the basins, walk-through wardrobe, two basins and large bath an extension of the bedroom. The suit has two tv?s, a smaller one in the bedroom and larger in the living space. The living space has a lounge area as well as small round dining table, chairs and small fridge. Both rooms have large sliding doors and outdoor furniture with electric awnings to protect you from the sun. The bed is four-poster and whilst it looks very luxurious I found it too soft and whilst not impossible to sleep on I did experience a stiff back each morning. In terms of room quality this suite is top notch and compares favorably with other rooms and suites we?ve experienced at five star resorts around the world.
We were lucky enough to arrive the day prior to Aquazure opening, Hayman?s new second pool and restaurant. It?s located towards the other end of the property just outside the Lagoon Rooms. It?s just beautiful with an infinity pool, large day beds and lounges and a very cool restaurant. It?s promoted as the ideal location for families and kids but to be honest I was wishing it was kid free.
The original pool at Hayman is still spectacular ? and I?d highly recommend if your budget permits opting for a suite overlooking it. Even better, get one on the 1st floor so you can walk out the front straight into the pool.
We had a great long weekend at Hayman even though a couple of the restaurants are average for what you pay. Recommended.
This is the bar around the original main pool at Hayman. Its a stunning setting. The service here is a bit patchy, rather slow on both occasions we tried it. We also tried for a third time and gave up one day as we couldn't get any service (the staff were chatting to people and it wasn't very busy). The menu is pretty limited, the burgers and chips and drinks all pretty much hotel type food - nothing special but good pool-side food.
