My husband and I stayed at Qualia from March 6 to March 10, and we absolutely loved it. Qualia is one of those spectacular resorts that you've hardly ever heard of. From the moment we arrived at the Hamilton Island airport arrival terminal (it was about 85% humidity), we were greeted by the Qualia staff who informed us that our...

My husband and I loved our stay at Qualia! We stayed 4 nights in the Leeward Pavilion which was beautiful, spacious, and had a private balcony with small table and loungers and overlooked the water. The service at Qualia is 10 star! We were picked up at the airport and our bags whisked away to the resort in a separate...

The rooms are perfect, well separated with fantastic views and abundant wildlife. The staff are very welcoming and provide a very high service level. The personal buggies enable easy access throughout the whole island and are a great idea

After staying at this hotels main "competitor", I had slightly higher hopes for this hotel. The resort is simply amazing and lives up to its ecol-luxe resort claim, however for the price point the service was stuffy and lacked warmth. The food throughout our stay was beautiful, albeit a little overpriced. The rooms were stunning, very large and could not...

Two classes of accommodation. Unfortunately, we stayed in the better of the two for the first 4 nights and then 2 nights in the lesser due to the Windward being booked out. The Windward accommodation is excellent. Our pavilion was located directly above the water looking towards Whitsunday Island. 3 very large rooms (bedroom, bathroom and sitting room) all with...

It was perfect. Absolutely perfect. We had a villa which although totally secluded at the back had 180 views from the front. It was set high up in the hill so the view was across the bay to another island. There was a sailing competition on whilst we were there which was fantastic to watch. We had a good buggy...

Qualia is truly an exceptional place that will always be remembered!! Went with my partner for our anniversary and from the moment we got to Qualia it was a dream come true. Service from staff was fantastic, they were friendly and whatever we needed they accommodated for us. We were pleasantly surprised to receive the Windward Pavillion we requested and...

My husband surprised me with an adults only weekend away to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and he chose the perfect place. We had a beautiful pavilion with a view of the bay, our own golf cart, amazing meals, a beautiful poolside pavilion to relax in all day, a sunset cruise and lunch at golf club. Will happily come back...

If you're looking for a place to relax in peaceful, romantic and luxury surroundings then look no further than Qualia Resort. Each private pavilion is set amongst tropical rain forest in the quietest location on Hamilton Island. The resort was full to capacity, but we hardly saw other guests unless we were at the pool or dining in the restaurant....
