We stayed at Qualia for three nights and it was amazing. We were greeted at the airport and right from the start the service and quality was fantastic. The main reception area has an incredible view of the Whitsundays and we were given a glass of champagne on arrival. Our room was spectacular and I recommend getting a room with... More

Dear Tash28, Let me thank you for your wonderful review. In my opinion, the Windward Pavillions at qualia are well worth the extra money and I can’t recall a single Windward Pavillion guest regretting the choice to upgrade from a Leeward to a Windward. The marketing on our website describes them as having “A private sundeck and infinity-edge plunge pool... More

For us, this was a sales incentive trip. Our incredible bungalow included a large living area, huge bath and huge bedroom, lots of glass facing the water, private plunge pool, and our own golf cart. We helicoptered across the bay for golf and had a helicopter tour of some of the Great Barrier Reef. The golf course was challenging. Food... More

Hello Art j, Thank you for writing a review of qualia. It’s satisfying to hear that you had an amazing time during your stay. The Whitsundays are quite a long way from Nebraska, so I’m especially glad that you made the most of it: doing a helicopter tour, sailing to the Great Barrier Reef and playing golf at the Hamilton...

We stayed for three nights after having spent seven nights elsewhere on the island. qualia was pure excellence from the beginning of our stay to the end. Service was brilliant.

We recently stayed at Qualia over the long Easter weekend. What a wonderful experience! Once we had left the airplane at Hamilton Island airport, we were immediately greeted by the Qualia staff, shown to a chauffeur driven car and informed "do not worry about your bags as we will take them directly to your cabin"! From that moment on we... More

We spent 5 nights over Easter at Qualia and it was great. We spent last Easter here and had a wonderful stay so we thought we could replicate another great stay and we did!

What a place. We were simply overwhelmed with the quality of our stay from the pick up at the airport and on. One major draw back for us, the food and the wine service. Our pavillon was impeccable.

We've travelled widely for business and leisure, so wanted something amazing and in Australia for our honeymoon. The Qualia looked great online, and it was even better in real life. Activities from Qualia included seaplane to Whitehaven, private helicopter to Great Barrier Reef - all organised by the very helpful staff without us lifting a finger. The attention to detail...

Wonderfully situated resort with a minimum 16 yrs guest policy so in the middle of the Easter holidays it was blissfully free of the screams and cries of young children.
