My wife and I traveled to qualia for one phase of our honeymoon trip in February 2014. We were amazed by qualia. In our minds, it is an incredibly difficult proposition for a hotel/resort to do everything in a luxurious and exclusive way without seeming precocious. qualia accomplishes this feat. Incredible convenience to the airport and everything else on Hamilton Island. Friendly staff that are ready to help you in any way to make your stay more pleasant. Outstanding food and beverage selection. The overall vibe of the location in the common areas is quiet comfort, a beautiful sanctuary. The location is not overcrowded with guests / staff. You feel right at home. We recommend having dinner delivered to you one night in your pavilion (for more notes on the rooms, see my comments in that section).
Our only complaint really, was that we felt guilty sleeping (I am serious). We highly recommend this location if you are looking for natural beauty, comfort and luxury.
We were able to do all of this on the island while still feeling relaxed over a 4 day period: private island drop off, helicopter ride to whitehaven and the GBR, kayaking, snorkeling, hiking.
We look forward to another trip there in the future. Cheers to the staff (to name a few: Baraka, Paul, Rex, Penny, Linsday, Jordan, Cameron) and to the GM, Matthew Taverner.More
