From the time we landed on Hamilton Island we felt the wonderful embrace of qualia. The gardens are beautiful and the layout allows guests complete privacy in their bungalow. Morning yoga at the spa followed by breakfast in the Long Pavilion was a very nice way to start the day. We had complimentary use of the electric buggy which allowed... More

From start to finish our quick visit was perfect. Staff, grounds, room, food and amenities the best I've had in Australia. Unbeatable in my opinion. The small touches like turn down service candle left in my favorite scent a highlight. Going to re-book as soon as possible. Dreaming of our return!

Spent a long weekend at Qualia in Nov 13. It was a fantastic experience. Service was sensational, views were outstanding. Extremely relaxing and well worth the $$$. Would definitely go back. 3 days was enough for us. Eating at the same restaurant got a bit repetitive although the food was great.

My family and I spent 4 days in May 2014. This is our second time and I have to say there were some disappointments with the following.

Our first time to Hamilton Island and despite a bout of unseasonably cold weather, we were very impressed with Qualia. Genuine international standard and child free. The service is impeccable, friendly without being intrusive or pretentious, the facilities are first rate, and we would highly recommend.
