Been to Qualia 3 times now. Booked to go again over the xmas break. We love it, the views, architecture, food, facilities etc are world class. From airport transfers to check out staff have good attention to detail and a very enjoyable experience. Sunset cruise is very good. Small boat (atomic i think) is better than the big one. Always...

Qalia is a beautiful resort with one of the most beautiful views and pools I have ever seen. The spa is one of the best I've visited. The champagne on arrival was lovely, and the staff were, in general, very friendly. I have stayed at number of five star resorts and hotels over the years however, and felt that the... More

Everything about this place was perfect. Beautiful location and property and amazing staff. They made only one mistake during our entire week and Lauren the front office manager instantly rectified that one problem with our activities scheduling (and gave us a generous credit for the inconvenience). We stayed in pavilion 26, it was amazing, but all the Windward pavilions probably... More

We spent three nights here in a Windward room. Beautiful views, timber finished rooms and the deepest bath with direct views over the water, along with a plunge pool. It is a beautiful place to stay to completely relax - a piece of paradise. The food was overpriced and overrated but you can eat elsewhere on the island. Each room... More

From magnificent accommodation featuring beautifully crafted timber finishes, exquisite setting and views, incomparable dining and friendly, expert staff and meticulous maintenance, Qualia is the perfect place to spend some time. We enjoyed every moment of our five days relaxing as well doing some challenging walks. Nothing is too difficult for the staff who seem honed to provide the perfect experience... More

This was our second visit to Qualia - after spending eight nights in February and Eight nights in July. The weather was excellent for us....plenty of sunshine and the 22 degrees felt much warmer. Our pavilions were outstanding. We loved the nice touch of the fruit platter upon arrival as a past quest. The spa treatment was the best that... More

Our second time back in June and the weather was perfect! Sunny, calm, average 23 - 25 deg C. It made such a difference in comparison to our last stay 2 years ago (cold, windy and rainy). So we spent a lot of time by our plunge pool in our Windward pavilion with a mesmerizing view of the water and... More

From the time you arrive until the time you leave - everything is perfect. The view, the room, the food, the staff and the service were all fantastic. The private beach drop-off with a picnic is also highly recommended. Golf buggy to get around the island is great fun. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in November 2013... More
