One&Only Hayman Island, Australia, opens Paspaley Pearls pop up boutique
March 20, 2015: Paspaley and One&Only Resorts have come together in a collaboration, set against the breathtaking backdrop of the private tropical island in the Whitsundays. Paspaley, the world’s leading producer of Australian South Sea pearls, has opened a pop up at Australia’s newest ultra-luxury resort, One&Only Hayman Island, showcasing their current fine pearl jewellery collections. The collaboration will allow guests to discover an elegant on-island pop-up pearl boutique and a range of exciting pearl experiences on this private island resort.
Having organised exciting partnerships with the likes of Christian Louboutin, Alice Temperley and Missoni, One&Only Resorts has opened the Paspaley pop-up store, providing guests of One&Only Hayman Island with the opportunity to discover the rarest and most valuable pearls in the world until April 29, 2015. In addition to the pop-up, guests of One&Only Hayman Island will have the chance to indulge in unique pearl experiences created especially to celebrate the Paspaley partnership.
The Paspaley Chef’s Table is a bespoke dining event that offers guests the chance to experience Paspaley pearl strands as part of the resort’s signature gourmet Chef’s Table. The evening commences with cocktails at the Paspaley boutique, where female guests will be ‘stranded’ in a specially selected Paspaley Australian South Sea pearl strand. Guests will then move to the island’s Pacific deck, where they will enjoy canapés featuring Paspaley Pearl Meat, a delicacy rarer than caviar, while taking in views of the Whitsundays and Hayman Beach. The dinner adventure then moves to the Main Kitchen, where One&Only Hayman Island’s culinary artists will create a special pearl-inspired degustation. Over dinner, guests will discover the versatility of Paspaley strands and explore additional ways to enhance each strand through the addition of precious gemstone clasps.
Guests of One&Only Hayman Island will also have the chance to participate in an exclusive Poolside Pearl Discovery. With sweeping views of the Whitsundays, over a glass of champagne, guests will enjoy an interactive insight into the fascinating world of Australian South Sea pearls. They will gain an understanding of The Five Virtues – the traditional method by which all fine pearls are graded – with a hands-on session providing expert tips to become a true pearl connoisseur.
Guests will also experience a Paspaley strand fitting – a unique opportunity to try a myriad of strands in all different sizes, shapes and values, while getting photographed adorned in the beautiful pearls. Guests are invited to experience a Paspaley Weekend on One&Only Hayman Island starting from AU$1,180 per person, twin share. The package includes two nights’ ultra-luxury accommodation, the Paspaley Chef’s Table, daily breakfast in Pacific restaurant, watersports (non-motorised) on One&Only Hayman Beach, use of the One&Only Fitness Centre and complimentary KidsOnly Club.
