We would highly recommend this resort. The care and professional approach to caring for the guests during the potential severity of Cyclone Ita was nothing short of amazing. All the staff were well informed and calm leading into the cyclone. Outside of the cyclone space the resort was friendly relaxed and just what we were looking for. Staff were knowledgable... More

My girlfriend and I came to QT for my birthday week, Sunday to Thursday and we loved the place. Aside from the funky decor and modern twist the other main standouts were the excellent staff, many from Oz and Europe, all were extremely attentive and a credit to themselves and the hotel. Rooms were small but clean and modern with... More

Nice resort, staff were great. Although room was modernly furnished it was still pretty basic. Bed was really lumpy and uncomfortable. Front door let in every sound whenever someone walked past. Ground floor room facing pool unfortunately allowed no privacy unless curtains fully closed.

We arrived the day before cyclone Ita (category 5) hit. On arrival we were given a brief which filled me with so much confidence having my young family with me. There was a full briefing in the ballroom the next morning with the cyclone due to hit that evening. We were all allocated a food parcel as it was safest... More

I am a local resident from Port Douglas and I had to leave my house due to the imminent threat of Cyclone Ita. My wife and I where booked into the Q.T resort immediately and had a full description of what to expect during the lock down procedures. This to me was clear, informative and with the staff taking the... More

Waited in line to check in. No bell man/luggage person. Had to ask twice about how to get our luggage to the room. Answered as we only had a backpack. Most people staying a extended amount of time has a few bags (heavy). Small girl (nice) then said I will help. Felt guilty to give her all the luggage. Room... More

Hi Mamoor3, Thanking you for your comments. Sounds like a very busy time for the hotel and that we were not your cup of tea. Completely understandable and hope that this will not deter you from staying with us again in the future. Best, QT More

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

Had a beautiful weekend at QT the modern funky fresh vibe is a hands down winner. Staff very professional yet friendly and hospitable. Rooms clean. Breakfast amazeballs truly a decedant feast! As locals we will definitely return.
