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. Large and furnished with taste, fantastic view, private pool, a bottle of Veuve Cliquot as a welcome gift upon arrival, illimited use... More

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...

This resort is number one in Australia without doubt, and tops many other leading hotels from around the world that we have stayed at too. Whilst the prices here are high, there are many aspects to your stay that are complimentary and so the price is not unreasonable given the quality. Qualia has set a new benchmark in excellence for...

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. When we walked into our pool pavilion (pavilion #5) we were dumbstruck by the floor to celing windows and the stupendous view across the sound separating Hamilton from Whitehaven Island.... More

Dear David16Melbourne, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay at qualia. The private beach drop off is one of our most popular Signature experiences for good reason and you’ve summed it up beautifully. Another Signature experience that I highly recommend that you try next time is the helicopter transfer to Hamilton Island Golf Club.... More

I am currently staying at Qualia with my husband. The service so far has been impressive, our room exceptional and the facilities fantastic. We have travelled to many exceptional hotels and had many amazing experiences so does Qualia live up to these? In many ways , absolutely! In terms of variety for meals, Qualia does lack. This is not a... More

Having just finished a 5 night stay at the resort I think I got a good feel for the place. My expectations were very high but it claims to be 6 star and is in the top league price wise so I think that is reasonable. I have visited quite a few places in the same category so I am... More

First I have to say that this is the first (and probably only) time I have ever stayed somewhere this expensive. So I can't comment how it compares to others in it's category, but I cannot imagine ANYWHERE being better, regardless of cost. From the breathtaking location, to the friendly staff, to the amazing rooms, the entire experience was everything... More

The "Jurassic Park" gates, a beautiful starry night, and the unbelievable setting of Qualia, promises much. Sadly the build-up is not quite matched by the service ; not really that bad but both reputation and price presumes perfection! The food was very good but this is an expensive resort and I guess our expectation was very high. Nevertheless, we would... More
