We have beem lucky enough to stay in many lovely hotels and resorts around the world. Qualia is truly one of the worlds special locations and properties. Its quiet (even when full). A great set up with beautiful rooms and public areas all in a superb setting. The golf buggies are great fun and easily to get around this small... More

Our pretty and full of enthusiasm hostess Yvette gave us our card keys to our villas and said something that was a first to us. She said that could buy anything eat in any of the restaurants in the island and charged everything to our room with our key card. She also handed us our buggy keys as there are... More

As the saying goes: 'You really do get what you pay for' which is true in the case of staying at Qualia. It's fairly well known that Qualia is not available to those on a budget. Besides the exuberant price tag this place will blow your mind. Instant relaxation, this is my happy place I visualise of when shiz hits... More

It is all that has been said and more. Location perfect, views and tranquility perfect. Spa services excellent. The rooms with pools truly amazing. No kids policy big tick. My note would be resort food. For us De-gustation didn't work nor the pool side restaurant. Call us snobs but food was overworked and overdressed without substance. And beware the script... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about Qualia. It's worth every penny. My partner took me here for a weekend where he actually proposed. The staff went above and beyond the already fine level of service for him which was lovely. Proposal aside we have never been so relaxed. waking up with the ocean view was amazing and sliding into...

My new wife and I recently stayed at Qualia for our honeymoon after our wedding at the One and only resort on Hayman Island. From start to finish we were blown away by the resort and service. We have stayed in many luxury resorts and this is certainly the most prestigious . On arrival we were greeted with a delicious... More

What an awesome place, infact I'm trying to make it an annual trip. 4 days in this place is as relaxing as 7 days and the quality of service, room's ECT is second to none. If you want 6 star everything Then this is the place to go.

From the moment you step off the plane at Hamilton Island the staff at Qualia make your stay memorable greeting you with a concierge service at the airport then champaign once you arrive at the resort. We were blown away by the level of service provided by the staff who were incredibly friendly and helpful. The resort has excellent facilities... More

Qualia is a high end resort located on the car-free Hamilton Island. Guests stay in secluded one story pavilions many of which have plunge pools. The pavilions are beautiful and are very well situated and furnished. Each pavilion is very private. The Qualia staff was excellent and very attentive. This resort is a place you come to relax, read, and... More

We have stayed in many top international resorts throughout the world and this rates with us as the most amazing experience we have ever had. Certainly the best by a country mile in Australia, NZ or the Pacific Islands. Very high quality throughout, incredible service, excellent restaurants, amazing pool and the room was simply stunning. Just do it!
