Qualia Whitsundays Arieal


Off the coast of Queensland, on Hamilton Island’s forested, turquoise-fringed tip, Qualia is a collection of understated luxury villas and an utterly tranquil stay. From within the spacious living areas, the panoramic views of the verdant tropical bushland and gleaming sea are almost unreal in their perfection.

As unreal is the ultra-fresh cuisine—whether inflected with South Pacific flavors, grilled, or raw—produced by head chef Mark and the resort’s two restaurants (in-villa dining is also available). The seafood is incredibly fresh.

If there’s any stress that your first barefoot beach stroll didn’t dispel, the Spa Qualia offers complete stress removal services in the form of ocean-inspired treatments and massages.


The resort was created by Australian billionaires and there’s a sense of that in the flawless finish of this resort. Its experiences are equally exclusive, whether taking the resort submarine down to the Great Barrier Reef or flying by helicopter to remote Heart Reef.
