I had a pregnancy massage at Qualia during my stay on the island (didn't stay at Qualia itself). The massage was incredible and absolutely exceeded my expectations. Damien, the masseuse, was so lovely, professional, friendly and made me so much more relaxed than I thought I

We stayed for a week in a windward pavilion. Wonderful! Your own pool, nothing but peace and quiet. The staff are fantastic. The sunset cruise was a special treat as was the Spa massages. Food is good but needs some "down to earth" meals. It's nice having rich five star meals,

Waking up to breathtaking sea views of the islands that surround Hamilton, take your little golf cart and go explore the grounds or book into a spa day or be more adventurous like us and book a day on your own island with a picnic of snacks and food and snorkeling gear to enjoy

This should be the easiest review in the world. It is an amazing resort. It is amazingly beautiful and you could spend your holiday here without seeing another soul. The villas are beautiful and ours (with infinity pool) was hard to leave. We did the catamaran sailing; some time

Can someone explain the free island drop off? Where can you get dropped off at?
There are small bays/beaches near to the Qualia resort where one of their experienced team will drop guests off with a hamper of food & champagne if desired. Reception/guest services have more details but they offer a fantastic personal service.

I would try to reserve Leeward pavilion number 57, 58, 59 or 60 because these are a considerable distance from the helipad & should have uninterrupted views but also check with Qualia guest services department. Good luck.

We never had any noise problems with aircraft, occasionally saw a seaplane flying but that was very interesting however a few of the pavilions are near to the helipad therefore checkout when booking.

We had the helicopter and picnic on Whitehaven the first time we went because our wedding ceremony was on Whitehaven. We took helicopters to get there so it was a great experience for us. We also always do the qualia yacht dinner/nibbles and sunset kayaking (on main Hammo but). Hubby loves using their sail boats and we always make time for a snorkel trip if the weather is warm. We have done 2 trips now and love it. I would suggest taking a bottle of alcohol (or a few) since all the mixers are free. The drinks seem to add a lot to the bill for us lol. Highly recommend paying extra and staying at windward especially after the cyclone blew down then trees near leerwood. Not much privacy now. We have a standard room now hehe. Have a great trip.

When we went last month it did rain most days however not for long and it was still warm and then you had periods of sunshine. It didnt stop us totally enjoying our time there. If you want totally rain free this probably isnt the location for you.

"All the rooms are well proportioned and have lovely views however the view of the beach may be more desired by some"
"Book any spa appointments well in advance. Don't go in their Jellyfish season if you can help it. The water becomes unsafe to swim in."
"All rooms are fabulous and have complete privacy one the leeward side"
"all of the cottages are well appointed, quiet, and private"
"Windward pavillion low number"
