Just had 4 days at qualia - simply amazing. Having read some of the negative reviews, I wondered if they even stayed at the same resort (eg "no view from pool" — simply wrong: both the pools (there are 2) had an amazing view over the sea and Whitsunday island - the photos on the qualia website are very accurate....

Qalia is a beautiful resort with one of the most beautiful views and pools we have ever seen. The spa is one of the best we have ever experienced - certainly in the top 2 of dozens we have utilised in our time. The champagne on arrival was lovely, and the staff were, in general, very friendly. Arriving at Hamilton...

No words to describe how much we loved Qualia. It was the beginning to our honeymoon, and we never wanted to leave. We had the windward pavilion with our own pool, which meant we never made it down to the hotel one. The room was enormous, with floor to ceiling sea views. The service was beyond spectacular at every point...

Loved our recent 5 day stay. Gorgeous views from Windward room. Ate at both Pebble Beach (recommend the hot seafood platter, bugs were excellent) and Long Pavillion. Service exceptional, particularly from Remi and Ben. I can't wait until our next visit.

Qualia is a beautiful luxury resort with stunning views of the island. The pavilions are beautiful and well set out. The restaurants both offer delicious food and quality wines. The Day Spa is absolutely amazing, the staff are brilliant and the actual day spa is beautiful with cleverly designed rooms offering views and yet privacy.

It was a pleasure staying at Qualia for 4 nights. Spa Qualia is beautiful and the massage experience was fantastic. I, unfortunately, had hair in my food twice which dampened my experience. Once was in a pasta dish for lunch, and the other, a prawn salad. Other than that, the Windward Pavillion is beautiful and very peaceful. The golf carts...

If you're after a secluded luxury resort, this is probably the best in Australia. Now, notice I said Australia? That's because if you were comparing it to some of the resorts in say the Bahamas, it's not quite to that level, but still very good We chose to stay in the Windward pavilion and it was excellent.

4 nights here isn't enough. Service levels are exemplary, quality is at the very top level, no kids and no cars.
