We arrived to this resort on the day of Cyclone Ita, at 1:30 pm. We were told at the desk that the resort was going to shut down at 2pm. We were advised to stay in the room at all times and we would be contacted by phone to update us on the situation. We purchased some basic food from... More

QT really is a mixed bag. On entering the resort you can't help but be impressed. Stylish decor, great bar, lounge and restaurant, lush gardens and abundant pool furniture surrounding a large lagoon style pool with decked island and swim up bar. Heading to the accommodation, the cracks start to appear. No lifts; ok for us being on the 1st... More

Pretty disappointing for a 5 star resort. Firstly the service is certainly not up to the standard of other 5 star resorts in town, there is no assistance to get luggage to rooms which can be quite a distance from reception. When we checked in we were advised by front desk staff to try out the swim up pool bar... More

We arrived about 9.00 in the morning in mid-October 2013, having flown in from Hong Kong to Cairns overnight. We were immediately checked in and shown to our room, with no hassle about how early we were. Room was great, with all the services we expected - large comfortable bed, good quiet A/C, minibar (always overly expensive in hotels though),... More

I am, or should I say, we are in love with this place. We stayed for two nights during our recent trip and spent another two nights in Cairns. All I can say is I wish we could've spent all of our trip here instead. The staff are so friendly and accommodating even though we've got one of the craziest... More

The best way to describe the QT is it's half way there. There are inklings of a great resort, but it's still missing so much for a 5 star hotel. In reality it's a 3-4 star which if you're not paying top dollar isn't that bad. For an apparently "2 year old" resort - which is believe is just when... More

This was my second stay at QT and we stayed with another couple in 2 separate rooms. The room was clean and the quirky decor made you feel like you were on holidays. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and were highly impressed with the choices on the menu. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful. While the pool... More
