Met all of our expectations and more. This hotel is just breathtaking and we will go back again. Expensive but well worth the extra money to stay at such a divine location. The pool water is very soft and the pool lounges are first class.

We have just spent 7 nights on a return visit to Hamilton Island. Our first to Qualia. This was just what we needed and hoped it would be. The views are breathtaking, the staff are first class - nothing was too much trouble. Our Leeward Pavilion was bigger and better than we thought it would be with the most stunning... More

Recently stayed at the Qualia, a gorgeous resort on Hamilton Island in the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, Australia. From Cameron's first greeting at the airport and ride through the Jurassic Park-like gates of the resort, to James at the front desk who helped settle us in and arrange for activities, and Daan at the restaurants, who helped us to enjoy...

My wife and I had the recent pleasure of spending a very relaxing 6 days at qualia. Upon first arrival with champagne during checkin, we were introduced to what we could expect during our stay. Our pavilion was enormous and very well maintained. A golf buggy for each pavilion is provided for transport, not only within the resort, but around... More

Great Resort! Everyone went above and beyond. Highly recommend the yoga class and the breakfast with Damien Evans. The iridology seminar was very informative. We also enjoyed the talk and taste: Wine and Cheese with Ben. Thanks for making our stay a memorable one. Three days here was not long enough.

The Qualia had high standards to live up to, and our stay did not disappoint in the slightest. My wife and I stayed for about seven days and were constantly surprised at the magnificent staff who made sure our every needs were met. Whether organizing day trips to the GBR or a helicopter ride around the islands, they went above... More

Luxury resorts are defined by the quality of their staff .. More so than the quality of their facilities . Sian exemplified this today , the service provided at the long pavilion breakfast started my day in the most perfect way.. The food was great but the warmth Sian was first class and well matched to the expectations of a... More

This is a great retreat for couples who are looking for relaxation and fun. The pavilions with individual pools are stunning - very spacious bathroom, bedroom and living areas, all with large picture windows providing panoramic views across the island. The exterior areas offer generous sized infinity pools, their own outside beds and sun loungers with equally stunning views. We... More

Very often , going back to a place that you enjoyed can be disappointing . But not at QUALIA. We booked the same Pavilion, came back at a similar time of the year. Absolutely wonderful to be back.
