HAYMAN RE­PORTED FOR SALE

Whitsunday Times - - FRONT PAGE -

HAYMAN Is­land in the Whit­sun­days, a daz­zling play­ground of the rich and fa­mous, has been listed for sale by its Malaysian own­ers Mul­pha, ac­cord­ing to re­ports in The Aus­tralian.

While the re­sort has been closed since sus­tain­ing dam­age in the face of Cy­clone Deb­bie ear­lier this year, it is still one of the most pres­ti­gious gems in the state and could com­mand up­wards of $300 mil­lion.

In 2014 it fa­mously played host to the cast of Mod­ern Fam­ily.

But Hayman has strug­gled for con­sis­tency over the years with sev­eral man­age­ment changes and it has bat­tled in the vo­latile high-end mar­ket.

There have been ru­mours the Oat­ley fam­ily, own­ers of nearby Hamil­ton Is­land, are in­ter­ested in ex­pand­ing their Whit­sun­day em­pire, but in a state­ment, the group re­fused to be drawn into the spec­u­la­tion. — Jeremy Pierce Courier Mail
