The level of service is very good but the hotel lacks style and charm and the rooms are getting a little dated. The Long Pavilion and bar are somewhat minimalist without character and not particularly welcoming. If you have a drink at the bar with cocktails costing $28 each there are no nuts , canapés , olives etc. which is... More

Had the pleasure of experiencing the "Qualia" hospitality and putting it simply all I can say is "mind blowing". Right from the moment we got off the aircraft until the time we were dropped off back at the airport Qualia staff was there to make sure that everything you need is taken care of. The pavilion is huge, neat, everything... More

This resort is absolutely stunning! We stayed in one of the Leeward Pavilions, and although the view from the room was a bit lacking, the room itself was very spacious and beautifully appointed. There was also a bottle of champagne on ice for us when we arrived to our room. We got spa treatments the evening we arrived, and again,... More

A wonderful place to celebrate a birthday. A surprise from my husband and a very special 4 nights. We couldn't fault anything and the personal service from staff was faultless. Would love to stay again.

We spend a long weekend at a Leeward Pavilion and although the weather on Hamilton Island was a little bit colder than expected, Qualia made our stay completely stress-free and relaxing. We were greeted at the airport with water and hot towels, given a tour of the island on the way back to the resort, and welcome with champagne upon... More

Words would just not be able to express the sentiments we experienced at Qualia and Hamilton Island. It was our honeymoon and we stayed there for 2 nights in the windward pavilion. We had booked a Spa Qualia Indulgence Package. First I would like to recommend anyone and everyone who is planning to visit qualia to include a spa in... More

We stayed in a Leeward Pavillion for 5 nights as part of our 3 week Honeymoon in Australia. From the second you are collected at the private desk at the airport to the moment you leave (you have access as a guest to the private lounge at the airport) you feel well and truly spoilt. The rooms are vast and... More

This is a finely honed and well developed Queensland resort. We had a great week based in a lovely Pavilion high on the hill looking NE across islands to a great sunrise every morning. The Pavilion is well designed, carefully maintained and a lovely space to relax. qualia's appeal is it's luxurious atmosphere and well trained and enthusiastic staff. Youngsters... More

This was our 3rd visit to Qualia and were booked on the Leeward Pavilion side of the resort. Upon booking we had requested the same accommodation as our previous 2 visits, but not specifying Leeward or Windward. So we were more than a little surprised to check into a room that was smaller with no separate bedroom and NO plunge... More
