Tucked away in an exclusive precinct on Hamilton Island's northern-most tip, Qualia's 60 private pavilions look onto the Coral Sea and the Whitsunday Islands.

Hamilton Island is fringed by coral in the World Heritage-listed magnificence of the Great Barrier Reef. One of the Whitsunday Group of 74 islands, Hamilton Island is located a little south of neighbouring Whitsunday Island and the brilliant white sand of Whitehaven Beach.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Qualia (pronounced kwah-lee-ah) in Latin means "a collection of deeper sensory experiences". A byword for Hamilton Island luxury, Qualia is situated on the secluded northern-most tip of Hamilton Island surrounded by all the splendour of the Great Barrier Reef. With a relaxed aspect and mesmerizing calmness, time seems to stretch forever.

Qualia's distinctive style combined with it's sun-drenched location and intuitive service makes it a luxurious resort by global standards. It's a truly special place where everything has been meticulously considered to relax the mind and completely spoil the senses.

Fifty-nine one-bedroom Windward or Leeward Pavilions blend harmoniously with the natural beauty of the island and provide an indulgent space to unwind. The 60th Pavilion is the ultimate luxury and privacy of the 2-bedroom Qualia Beach House, with its own guest quarters, lap pool and breathtaking views. A private and exclusive haven in the Whitsundays, Qualia Hamilton Island has every facility you could wish for including two infinity-edge swimming pools, a library, two restaurants, a private gym and quintessential Australian treatments at Spa Qualia.

In Australia luxury accommodation is synonymous with Qualia.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Cannot overstate how incredible this place is. Every single detail of your stay is looked after from a welcoming arrival to the very best food and accommodations. And each staff member took the time to remember our names and have a conversation with us. This is a truly special place.

Review:   A wonderful resort nestled at the north western tip of Hamilton Island. Surroundings are idyllic and the views are gorgeous. A luxurious retreat indeed. All villas come with a golf buggy for commuting around the whole of Hamilton Island. WiFi is also complimentary and available around the whole island.

Review:   You get what you pay for, down to every dollar. Attention given to every detail of this place from the room, food, drinks, minibar, bathroom, transportation, beach activities, infinity pool, service and arrival/departure but prepare to fork out over 1g per night twin share. Paradise for the rich and powerful.
