I'm writing this as we prepare to leave this stunning resort. We were here to celebrate Christmas and our daughter's 21st birthday. Our positive impression started well before our arrival as we made dining and excursion reservations before we travelled. Unlike some high end resorts, staff at Qualia positively embrace the whole Hamilton Island economy and are happy to recommend... More

The 5 Star treatment begins when you enter the terminal building and continues on through until your goodbye before check in. The transfer from the airport to the resort includes a quick tour of the key parts of the island which is very useful for when you venture out on your own. On arrival you are greeted with a refreshing... More

I am here to tell you that the heli tour to reef world then on to white haven beach was worth every penny. What a thrill !! Just do it and you will be so glad we saw so much more this way and my daughters loved it to one of our best tours they picked us up at the... More

Qualia offers discerning adult travellers the luxury option to experience all the Whitsundays has to offer. Located in secluded private grounds on the tip of Hamilton Island you know you are in for a treat as soon as your private pick up drives you through the gates. Immaculately maintained grounds line the drive up to the long pavilion. The panoramic... More

cannot believe I have found paradise everything about qualia is amazing from the arrival which is the best being greeted at the airport to journey to resort. Then the amazing entrance words cannot describe. Then you are given your personnel golf buggy to use during stay with is a novelty driving around the island. We have been on a luxury... More

Traveled to Qualia with my two girls 25 & 24, I have been before but this was their first time, after being greeted at the airport, chauffeured to the resort, helped out of the car, & offered champagne & iced tea, escorted to the lounge & greeted by the general manager, my girls looked at each other & said "I...

We stayed for a little bit over a week in a Windward Villa. The villa was absolutely fantastic with a superb view to the north. Pool area at the beach is great and the staff at watersports did a great job. But! I would not consider Qualia to be a luxury resort, at least not during our stay. Almost all... More

Upon our arrival we were greeted with the best champagne in all of my travels! The view was breathtaking. Our pavilion was perfect, all glass facing the sea, with one window that "disappeared" into the floor I suppose, anyway it opened to a small balcony, so romantic. Then of course our patio had the infinity pool along with a cozy... More

Dear Carman S, It was a pleasure to read your review here on TripAdvisor and learn that you enjoyed so many facets of your stay with us so much. Our Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve is indeed a wonderful champagne, worthy of any celebration – especially one’s arrival at qualia. Quite a number of our guests will arrive each morning from...

Truly the definition of luxury... from airport arrival to departure. I won't repeat all the compliments from all the other reviews but I sure agree with them. Pavilion 13 was lovely - our own infinity pool, completely private. Birds and bats a little noisy at night (and don't leave the door open because the cockatoos will wander in and steal... More

Dear KMB33, I was so pleased to read your review – thank you for taking the time to record some of your experiences of your recent visit to qualia. I do admit on occasion that the bush curlews in residence around the resort can be a little territorial with their dealings with their neighbours at night and compete on occasion... More

Snorkelling on one of the world's natural wonders, i see a reef shark swim past on my left, a school of almost translucent white fish madly fleeing in the other direction and a gorgeous blue coral with branches that stretch out and up towards the sunlight. There is no one else in sight and i feel like I'm the only... More
