After one hell of an HSC year, we really needed a Holiday. One kid on schoolies and the other at Camp so we took advantage of a 4 day break and stayed at this very understated but exceptional resort. Frankly, I wouldn't have needed to stay much longer, 3 nights was ample and I left feeling rejuvenated and ready for...

I cannot praise Qualia enough. The staff were so very welcoming, pleasant and helpful. The resort itself is simply breathtaking. Everything was thought of and executed with absolute professionalism. It was the small details that aren't shown on the website that really made our trip unforgettable. The food was incredible, we particularly loved the generous breakfast offering. Honestly, the 5/5...

My partner and I thought we had been to some stunning places but we were taken aback by Hamilton Island. The hotel staff were so attentive and friendly. We arranged the helicopter tour of the reef through the hotel and it made one of the most amazing memories of my lifetime. A MUST! We also played the Hamilton Island golf...

Amazing place and great service! We really enjoyed the meals on the resort and driving the golf cart around the island. It is secluded (but not isolated) and separate from most of the other resorts on the island. We took advantage of the great excursions that the island provides as well such as snorkeling and the white beach tour. We...

Without telling my husband, I booked Qualia to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. This was a SUPER indulgence for us as we would not normally stay at such an exclusive resort, however it had been on my bucket list for some time and this celebration provided the perfect excuse. The extra touches: When being shown to our pavillion I was...

Qualia is by far the most relaxing, enjoyable and wow, break that we have experienced. From the moment that you arrive on the Island you are treated like a royalty. Nothing is missing from this experience. The location, the accommodation, the restaurants, the staff, and the views. We have been fortunate to travel quite extensively within Australia and overseas. Qualia...

Stunning location made all the better by the incredible staff. So warm and helpful, always there at the right time and not pushy at all. Food is out of this world, both in the hotel and on the island.

Qualia was the highlight of a three week first visit to Australia and although it was a splurge, it felt like it was worth every penny. The service we received - from arrival at Hamilton Island airport through to our departure - was excellent. We felt that the staff is very well trained across the board, nothing was too much...

What an impressive resort, it beats anything that we have been to before on service and right up there on room luxury and facilities (we have been to Le Sirenuse in Positano and many other 5 star establishments in Australia, America and Europe and Qualia was better then all of them, or at least the best we have seen so...
