Everything has been meticulously designed to relax the mind yet completely spoil the senses. Stay at qualia for a truly memorable, luxury holiday experience.

Qualia Resort

Step through the doors of qualia and you’ll immediately feel lighter. This luxurious resort is tucked into tropical bushland, with the Great Barrier Reef on its doorstep.  From the deep bathtub in your room to the infinity pools overlooking the Coral Sea, revitalising spa services and world-class dining… Spend 48 hours at qualia and you’ll appreciate its Latin origins as a collection of deeper sensory experiences. 

Day 1: Fly to qualia

Access to qualia is simple, with a short, direct flight from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Cairns to Great Barrier Reef Airport on Hamilton Island. There are also direct boat transfers from Airlie on the mainland.

If you can drag yourself aways from your private infinity pool, there’s an infinite amount of adventure waiting at your doorstep. Included in all qualia accommodation is the use of non-motorised watercraft like kayaks and SUPs, snorkelling equipment, beach drop-offs and use of a two-seater golf buggy, so you can explore the rest of the island at your own pace.

Prefer a slower start? Sink into your weekend and unwind with a restorative spa treatment.

Day 2: Rise & Sunshine!

Wake up to sunrise over the Coral Sea, enjoyed from the comfort of your bed and you’ll want to move in permanently. But with an exciting day ahead, rise and take your time to savour breakfast in the Long Pavilion. You might see whales breaching in the waters below while you fuel up for the day.

If your perfect day means never leaving the views and privacy of your pavilion, then sink into your bathtub and get ready to not lift a finger.

But if you want to experience a uniquely special part of the Whitsundays, let the qualia team coordinate a day out you’ll be talking about for years to come. The resort is surrounded by the splendour of the Great Barrier Reef, none more enchanting than the Heart Reef. See it from above on a scenic helicopter flight that’ll soar you over Whitehaven Beach and Hill inlet before touching down on the Heart Island Pontoon for a secluded afternoon on the reef.

Day 3: Soak in the views

Spend your last morning in true luxury with a front seat to the best views in Queensland. Part of the beauty of qualia is just being here, so take your time to relax and recharge before you depart.

Or start your day with a yoga class. Complimentary to qualia guests, classes run every morning and are the perfect way to awaken the body and set a relaxed tone for the day ahead.
