A wonderful resort for grown ups only. We stayed in a windward pavilion which was very spacious, had fantastic views and a very good size plunge pool. Perfect spot for an indulgent week of RnR. If you want water activities, there are 2 nice hobie cats, paddle boards and sea kayaks so plenty of choice. Golf enthusiasts can play at... More

This is a magical place, hidden behind the great wooden gates that remind me of Jurassic Park. This resort is run in the most professional manor, all the staff work so hard, they are so friendly and can't do enough for you and really enjoy their jobs. It's so romantic, with Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Parakeets and Kookaburras flying around, paying... More

Wildlife and scenery was amazing . Service was top notch! Food incredible. Plenty of activities. The Spa was small but lovely with great technicians . Each guest had their... More

Simply Sublime!!!! From the moment you enter through the gates at Qualia you cannot help but relax. The location is beautiful. Spend the little bit extra for a Windward Pavilion - it is well worth it for the amazing views & own private pool. The staff go out of their way to make your stay special. Both Pebble Beach &...

We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in a Windward Pavilion and they are just beautiful. Very simply furnished and decorated as the floor to ceiling windows show off the fantastic view. The Pavilions are large and spacious, so you're not just stuck in a hotel room. We loved the outside deck with day... More

There's so much to like about Qualia Resort, it's hard to know where to start, so I'll start with the rooms. We stayed in both the Windward Pavillion with the private infinity pool and for one night in the Leeward Pavillion. Both are among the finest suites we've ever experienced with open architecture, banks of floor to ceiling glass, remarkable... More

Words cannot explain the amazing experience that awaits you at Qualia. Never mind the weather, it was rainy most of the time I was there and we had the best time. We were there for 3 nights. I'd recommend doing one of their value packages. They can also accommodate any need you request. Perfect for anniversaries, engagements and honeymoons. The... More

I last came to Hamilton Island in 1988 and it was a very downmarket resort with a boring concrete block hotel: what a change! Hamilton Island still has its concrete block but everything else has moved dramatically up market - with a mass of wonderful, well designed houses and the heavenly Qualia Resort. Qualia has a wonderful central area, high... More

I can only echo the views of others who have given such great reviews below; the resort is simply stunning- elegant, beautiful, maximising the views and with such a high finish. Every time we walked into the Long Pavilion our breath taken away by the view, and the beautiful but simple furnishings in there that add to the view rather... More
