We were only there overnight but we felt like royalty. Nothing was too hard for the team at qualia and what a team. It was a pleasure just to see the enjoyment that the staff had doing the job that they do. After being chauffeured from your pick up, in our case the marina, you are met at the door to the long pavilion with champagne. I say this to point out the level of service you get. The driver is connected with the resort by radio (secret service style) and is making arrangements for you as you travel around the island. Simple questions about diner arrangements are quickly converted to confirmed reservations for you. Your arrival at the resort is radioed ahead so that the fresh glasses of champagne are waiting. There is such a level of pride in what they do I was not surprised when I saw one of these wonderful staff members a little distressed that she had forgotten the radio call at the gate for a new arrival. The champagne was delayed by only a few seconds but she was disappointed in herself because it was not the qualia way.
The food can only be described as spectacular, restaurants of this quality are rare anywhere but almost never present in resorts or hotels.
This place is special because of where it is, the facilities and most importantly because of wonderful staff.
