Type: Luxury lodge

Grade: Deluxe

Introduction

Just a short flight from mainland Queensland, Hamilton Island rests in the stunning Whitsundays, and this is where the luxurious qualia can be found. Latin for 'a collection of deeper sensory experiences', this is precisely what you will find in this sixty room resort. Every detail has been carefully considered to create a tranquil haven, featuring beautifully appointed private pavilions, two exclusive restaurants and a spa offering world-class treatments.

qualia offers a range of activities, from chartered cruises to guided tours around the Whitsunday islands, sea-kayaking or snorkelling from qualia's private beach and we encourage visitors to make the most of your stay in this marine paradise. Set amongst native Eucalyptus, each private pavilion has been handcrafted from the finest imported and local timber and stone, and decorated with original artwork and furnishings that reflect the natural setting of the island. The spacious, one-bedroom pavilions provide an indulgent space in which to relax and unwind, with either a sundeck or private infinity edge plunge pool.

For those ready to splurge, the uncompromising luxury and privacy of the Beach House with its own guest pavilion, private full-size pool and breathtaking views are second to none. A stay at qualia includes all on-island transfers, plus access to your own two-seater electric golf buggy allowing the rest of the island to be explored at a leisurely pace.
