Good privacy and open garden spaces. Service is excellent. Will keep coming back.
Pool service is great with enough options of favourite cocktails. Make sure to visit the spa section if you have time to spare.

Almost perfect

We just stayed three nights and arrived exhausted and desperately needing us time (meaning kid free time!). Within ten minutes of our plane landing we were seated in a lounge, overlooking an infinity pool and the ocean with a glass of lovely French champagne in hand. Someone took care of our luggage (we just handed over our boarding passes), someone sat down with us and checked us in and someone else kept topping up our champs. We were soon in our room which we didn’t leave for a day. The room was gorgeous, the view was amazing, there was a bottle of French champagne on ice waiting for us, movies and mini bar drinks (non-alcoholic) were included and it turned out we could fine dine in our room for both dinner (hello grilled seafood platter) and the included breakfast. We promptly cancelled dinner reservations and just exhaled. It was truly lovely. The turn down service was exquisite with a lovely pot of herbal tea, a burner in the bathroom and chocolates. The staff were extremely warm and friendly but not obtrusive. We did leave the room for golf which was good. Lunch at Dent Island was excellent, sunrise yoga (good class, a bit of a mix up with locations but all good) and the sunset cruise. The cruise was nice and they were very generous with the drinks, but they need to offer more food. It was a small platter of prawns (two each for the ten guests) some cheese with not many crackers and some fruit. Not enough food with that many drinks but otherwise lovely. On returning to the room we ordered a room service dinner and fell asleep and were woken by a phone call just before 9 asking if we had finished with our plates. Then this morning in check out, we enjoyed breakfast and a movie (determined to enjoy every last moment) and were interrupted again by a phone call (can we have your plates) as we were checking out was that necessary and then we were enjoying a nice bath and get another phone call (your do not disturb sign is on but the porter wants to collect your luggage). We had received a note to say luggage would be picked up at 10.30am and this was 10am. Then we packed everything up ready to be at reception for our 10.45 transfer and our TV had been cut off so we couldn’t look at the bill. None of this is the end of the world but check out was supposed to be 11. No one asked us how our stay was on leaving or we would have mentioned the above. Other than feeling like they couldn’t wait to push us out the door, it was wonderful and everything we expected

Simply Amazing

Spent 4 nights here and what a beautiful 4 nights it was.
From the airport pickup to drop off. Everything was just amazing

Sensational service they provide for guests at Qualia Resort.
Rooms were big, airy and comfortable.
Its a very relaxing environment to be in.
The food at Qualia was fabulous and definitely recommend

only little con i had was the hot water being temperamental for showers.

But All the little details they go to is just excellent.
I highly recommend staying at Qualia, Hamilton Island
100% will be back for longer stay

Amazing - Rooms, Food & Service!!

We spent 4 nights here and had an excellent experience. Our Villa was in the Windward Pavilion which I can thoroughly recommend. The private plunge pool and outdoor shower overlooking the Coral Sea were excellent touches which made the extra investment totally worthwhile.

Our room was serviced every day with what seemed like a never ending supply of Aesop products - which are amazing! Our bed had uninterrupted views of the Coral Sea which guaranteed us waking to a wonderful view each morning. Overall the Villa was very roomy and the large balcony and pool was a great place to chill for a for a swim / read / nap (awesome double daybed) or catch up on some work (for those who must!).

The food and restaurant service were outstanding. The dinner dining experience at the Pebble Beach Restaurant was exceptional and although a little expensive (if you add cocktails and wine, which we did) and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Whilst we love our children, the kid free experience was very relaxing and ensured the resort and the guests were always quiet, relaxed and tranquil.

My partner and I had previously made a pact that given the world was so full of amazing resort and holiday experiences we should always try somewhere new but qualia has changed our minds and we'll definitely be going back!

Qualia is a special luxury private adults only resort. Each room is a separate sweet villa with great views. The villas are very private..and so so immaculate. They pick you up at the airport before you get your bags..they take your luggage tags and take care of everything...some how our bags got to Qualia before we did. Once at Qualia you are given a golf cart to use on the whole island during your stay. Hamilton Island is a small lovely island. All the resorts are owned by the same company and all are very family oriented( aside from Qualia) we did the windy day GBR tour that went to a close Reef then stopped at white haven beach...the little Reef was teeming with color and beautiful fish. The water was shallow and warm ..white haven was gorgeous...we also hiked up the tall peak at the end of the resort beach. Awesome views. We had one rainy day so we took advantage of the spa. OMG we got the 90 minute couples massage...the best!! Our one and only complaint is that the infinity pools in the villas are too cold to enjoy...
