Fantastic faultless service...beautiful location. Hamilton Island is such a beautiful island...also stayed at the Yacht Club villas, another tranquil place. We loved zooming around in the golf buggy's...lots of fun.

My husband and I recently stayed at qualia for our honeymoon. It was a last minute and fleeting visit (unfortunately) as he works away and getting time off can be tricky.
I really had my heart set on staying I in one of the windward pavilions however there were only leeward pavilions available. I thought I would be really disappointed (and I was) until we arrived... The leeward pavillion is gorgeous and truthfully just to stay here I would take anything.
The moment you arrive at the airport and approach the qualia desk you feel like a VIP and this continues until the moment you depart. The level of service is next to none, nothing is too much trouble.
I recommend a beach drop off, playing golf at dent island (even if you are a terrible player like I am the course is stunning!) and definatly having the tasting menu at the long pavillion at least one night... It was amazing!
I was so sad to leave this beautiful resort and go back to the real world, it really is a little slice of heaven. I have already told my husband I want to go back for our anniversary and this time stay in a windward pavillion, although regardless of not being able to stay in a windward this time around I honestly don't think we could have had a better time.

Dear PenelopeLapham,

What a pleasure it was having you with us in celebrating your honeymoon - congratulations once again!

I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. You might appreciate that our Windward pavilions are proving popular but so too are our beautiful Leeward Pavilions - a perfect space in which unwind and relax after the frenetic activities any wedding inevitably create!

I must agree whole heartedly with you on playing a round of golf on Dent Island. It's a demanding course for any golfer but with such vistas on every hole, these more than compensate for any challenge presented.

Do let me know when you wish to book a Windward pavilion for your anniversary! I'd be delighted to assist and to welcome you back once more.

Kind regards,

Matthew T

We were told to expect the best but Qualia surpassed our expectations. What an amazing resort. The ambience was delightful without being over bearing. The service first class (no hint of back packer staff!) and the good to die for.
Loved it.

We were expecting qualia to be beautiful but the photos do not do it justice - it is breathtakingly beautiful. From the very minute you arrive, management and staff do everything they can to ensure your stay is a memorable one. The views are spectacular - our Whitsundays are stunning. Everything is to the very highest standard. The Pavilions are private and well appointed. The food was excellent. The hardest decision is whether to go out and leave your Pavilion with its amazing views and private plunge pool or go down by the very generous sized infinity pool and enjoy the sea breeze and continuous food and bar service or be taken for a sail. Nothing is too much trouble here. Obviously we loved qualia and will definitely return.We were expecting qualia to be beautiful but the photos do not do it justice - it is breathtakingly beautiful.
