We were positively surprised by the efficiency, attentive service and beautiful setting. Staff is very responsive like it could never be anywhere in South East Asia. Hamilton Island is a perfect spot in terms of activities, ease of access, beauty of the Great Barrier Reef/Whitehaven beach and friendliness of people, clearly the $350m investment in the private island delivers a fantastic experience, with the buggy to get around. Only potential downside is the choice of food a qualia which is very good and inventive but a bit limited, also with respect to the wine list. In terms of activities, we found ha 4 days is not enough to do everything! July a good time to go when it's not too busy and hot, although sunbathing is still possible. Quite easy to reach from Hong Konhg, but most tourists seems in fact Australian. Well worth it!
