we had great expectations for this resort, this property had perfect scores in service, design, location, rooms and food, which gave this resort the number one hotel, resort in the world by Conde Nast couple of years ago. I believe the story really starts with Hamilton Island, which was my biggest surprise, I knew that Hamilton Island had the airport... More

Staying at Qualia was such an amazing experience. We went for our honeymoon and decided pretty much on the first day that this was going to be a regular anniversary destination. We stayed in the Leeward Pavilion and to be honest I think I would probably stay in this one again, despite the fact you can also get other rooms... More

We stayed at Qualia for 3 nights and really loved our time there. There were a lot of really nice touches like not having to wait for our bags at the airport (they were picked up for us), the champagne on arrival, the bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room, the inclusion of soft drinks/coffees and ice cream...

Qualia is possibly the most beautiful place I have ever stayed at. The colour of the sky and sea with the lush green vegetation and the tasteful architecture all combine to make sitting around watching the world go by a new pleasure to indulge in. The photos do not lie. A beautiful setting alone wouldn’t make the experience so memorable... More

We spent 3 nights in a Leeward Pavillion in March. The staff of the hotel were helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived at the airport until we left. The level of service is exceptional from all staff. The resort is absolutely fantastic with great facilities. We had a fantastic view of the sea from the balcony and the... More

Having travelled to some of the best hotels in the world, I think it is safe to say that qualia does not compare! Pool area lovely and relaxing but very crowded in peak times... Not flexible or accommodating for flight times .. Was made to check out right on 11am when flight was delayed to 3pm... Staff gave attitude and... More

every now and then it so happens that overall rating you are giving to a place doesn't reflect totality of your experience there. Qualia is one such place. Our overall experience here was better than 3 stars but there were quite a few deficiencies and taking away 2 stars felt like the fair thing. First of all positives 1. Beautiful... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our holiday to Australia - this place is without doubt one of the most special places I have visited in the world. The lodge we stayed in was without doubt the best hotel room that my partner and I have ever had the opportunity to sleep in - words cannot describe how much... More

If I could, through this interweb, convey the purest sound of paradise and have the sensation of harmonious wellbeing and luxurious love delivered to you in sprays of golden light, then I will have gone half way to describing qualia. . . . . go there, enjoy.
