Whilst initial investigations reported aesthetic harm after the cyclone passed on 30 January to 2 February this year, a special assessment found rebuilding work will impact guests. “The two devastating cyclones that swept through Queensland have unfortunately not spared us,” Hayman Head of Hotel Investments managing director Lloyd Donaldson said. “The works will encompass key guest and accommodation areas, activity facilities, essential infrastructure, landscaping and grounds throughout the island,” Mr Donaldson said. Guests booked to holiday on the island are being contact directly and are receiving assistance as they rearrange their holidays. “We greatly appreciate the understanding of our guests, industry partners and the wider community with respect to the challenges caused by these two cyclones,” Mr Donaldson said.“We will be retaining all staff throughout the period of closure and are committed to completing the works speedily. The resort will reopen on 1 August 2011.”
