VISIT: Diane von Furstenberg’s Hayman Penthouse in Australia

Last month, we wrote about the future opening of the Diane von Furstenberg-designed Penthouse at Hayman, the luxury nature-resort in Australia. The DVF two-bedroom penthouse was described as “light and fresh, complementing its prime location in the Great Barrier Reef, and boasts a vast balcony, which offers sweeping uninterrupted views over the tropical garden landscape, Hayman Beach, and the sparkling Coral Sea waters, which lap the island.”

And on October 27th, it opened to the public.

The opening reception was held in the suite, followed by a dinner in Hayman’s Rainforest. Diane attended the event and fell in love with the five star private island resort. She even extended her stay to nearly a week, taking in some snorkeling, exploring the Great Barrier Reef, and hiking into the beautiful jungle.

While most of us couldn’t be there for the unveiling, we were fortunate enough to get some amazing photos to check out.

Hayman is located on the northernmost side of the Whitsunday Islands in the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, and it’s a truly glorious travel destination. The resort is surrounded by unparalleled tranquility and natural beauty, covering 726 acres and featuring 210 accommodations. This includes Hayman’s stunning new residences, all of which feature access to the turquoise waters of the Reef.

The 1,7223 sq ft DVF Penthouse with wrap balcony took approximately 6 months to complete. State of the art electronics sit alongside traditionally-inspired furniture pieces, like a 4-poster American Oak bed with padded fabric bedhead, custom-designed cabinetry, and artwork from DVF’s personal collection of photography from her travels. The American Oak timber furniture was designed by DVF and produced by Arthur G in Australia, and all the pieces were upholstered in DVF signature fabrics.

The master bathroom is also a treat, featuring neutral tone fish scale feature tiling, a freestanding stone bathtub, 50cm rainwater showers, and Hansgrohe over-sized hand showers.

The DVF Penthouse will accommodate up to four adults and offer full Butler service, all meals, and other special inclusions.
