We spent four nights at qualia. From our arrival which was too early for check-in to our departure, it really was a wonderful experience. When we arrived, we were greeted at the door by the manager and also with cold champagne, a lovely touch. We were given our buggy to use (each pavilion has it's own buggy) to drive around and check out the island. The guest services people were very efficient, quickly organising anything we wanted (tours, special requests etc). We found both restaurants to be lovely with fantastic menu choices. The chef even cooked a meal specially for us of a trout we had caught. The service in all parts of the resort was very fast and efficient, including room service. We stayed in a Windward Pavilion facing north. The views of the ocean and islands were superb, there were even whales breaching out front of our pavilion one afternoon. Beautiful wet-edge pool at the perfect temperature to drink the welcome bottle of champagne in. The privacy was also just fantastic, we spent two full days only in our pavilion, only going out for breakfast and dinner to the Long Pavilion. Can't wait to go again!

When booking I was unable to get the Plunge pool option but lucky for us Victoria went into another lockdown and we ended up with a Windward Pavillion which was stunning. Having your own buggy is a must on Hamo unless you like long and steep walks to get around each Pavillion is provided with a buggy so no need to book one. Our PAvillion was just perfect for us and with the pool we tried just to chill using the resort facilities. Pebble beach was our goto for lunch and its stunning location and pool ,we also ordered room service both nights for dinner which both took some time getting there but both were delicious. Service at times could be alittle slow being my only complaint

2 glorious days in a Windward Pavillon, everything exceeded our expectations. Our infinity pool was warm and allowed us to paddle around and take in the breathtaking view for hours. We had dinner & breakfast in the Long Pavillon and lunch at the Pebble Beach restaurant. Food was fabulous, service engaging and personalised . View at Pebble Beach was a sight to behold on lovely sunny winters day. Golf buggy to get around provided the opportunity to go off exploring the island for miles. Sunrise and sunset from the Windward Pavillon were so serene. Dreaming of coming back again on another occasion & hopefully soon….a perfect stay in every way!

We stayed at the Qualia Hotel for 4 nights. Our villa was perfectly fit out, sized and positioned. It was located close to The Long Pavillon making it a short walk to access key resort facilities. The provided gold buggy makes it easy to get around the resort and Hamilton Island. Planning to return shortly. Great bits: pool, villa Good bits: breakfast, golf buggy, resort transfer service for dining in “town”. Bad bits: staff & service can be very slow

So much for escaping after 15 months of hibernation to enjoy 6 luxury nights of 5 star imaginative food and wine, where we did not have to lift a finger to cook, prepare or serve. Architecturally Qualia is beautifully designed but the food, service and"art of hospitality" were sadly missing. Staff were young, well groomed and smiling but lacking in any idea of service standards for a so called 5 star resort. No one seemed to have had any real hospitality training. The food was abysmal. At dinner in the Long Pavilion on the first night, the hot seafood platter at $200 , consisted of five seafood dishes plonked on the table at the same time. The scallops and the Coral trout were edible, but the barbecued prawns were overcooked to extinction and lay cooling at the table with the other two unappetising and unmemorable dishes. Service was slow and empty dishes stood forlornly looking at us for some time before they sent someone to take away the dirty dishes at our request. Breakfasts could require waiting time in the lounge before they could find you a table, even though there were empty tables available. When you sit down they present an unappetising looking large wooden breadboard on your table with one each of a mixture of tired unripe melons with sometimes a sour passionfruit, Danish, yoghurt Meusli etc. The wooden block stayed on the table for the duration of your breakfast as no-one removed dirty dishes from the small table until asked to by the guests. Avoid the Eggs Benedict at all costs unless you brought with you a steak knife to cut the piece of leather they called a bun. The Pastry chef is good. His croissants ( but you have to ask them to be warmed) were reliable fodder. Coffee was good but took a long time coming and rarely arrived as requested to sip with the croissants or Eggs Benedict. As it was raining we ordered room service lunch which apparently came from the only other restaurant Pebble Beach. The Wagyu Beef burger was edible as it had to feed two. The chicken burger was like cold inedible hard leather, so again we wished we had brought a steak knife. The empty dishes from this lunch stayed outside our Leeward Pavilion waiting for collection for 2 days. Our final degustation dinner at Pebble Beach was $429 with one bottle of wine , (without taking the extra "selected wines" at over $100 per head). The waitress had learnt the menu off rote and spoke so fast we had to ask her to repeat several times. There were only 3-4 tables full. One table next to us arrived and walked out as soon as they saw the menu. Our waitress managed to get the chef to change some squid ink dish for us to duck slices as we were a bit "over" locally caught seafood from our first dinner. What a disappointment Qualia was for experienced travellers. We had high hopes of Qualia becoming our luxury Australian bolthole for short breaks while our borders are still closed... but that will not be the case for us.
