        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Variety of dishes on breakfast menu. Included aquatic activities such as being taken out sailing on the catamaran. Included soft drinks and juices in room tariff and a welcoming bottle of French bubbly. Included golf buggy is useful as the island is quite hilly. Adults only is peaceful. Layout and landscaping of the resort are superb. Natural views from pavilions, dining and swimming areas are excellent.

          Bathroom isn't in a separate room from bed/living area so the sleeping partner is easily disturbed.

          it's nice place. and very good food breackfast and diner it's very very good.

          we took package with diner. It's better to take room also. and decide when you here because they're are no advantage for that.And for the price it's better the personel cleanup the floor on the room and private pool sometime.

          very private, luxurious hotel.Great food and service.Loved the buggies! Spa fantastic. All staff excellent.

          Everything was beautiful but it very expensive.

          Absolute luxury and relaxation. A wonderful place to relax and re-charge your batteries. Closeness to the Great Barrier Reef and the variety of excursions to see and/or dive or snorkel on the reef were particularly good.

          Expensive, but absolute luxury, with stunning scenery.

          Very small service errors, which shouldn't happen at this end of the market.

          I was hesitant at pau

          I was hesitant about paying so much for a hotel but I wasn't disappointed. It really is a very special place. Everything is first class and the staff will do all they can to make your stay memorable. It really is magical and my husband and I hope we will return again.

          We've stayed at a few resorts all over the world in our time so it was a pleasant surprise to find somewhere that is better than anywhere else we have stayed. It was the little differences at Qualia that made the experience as good as it was. Simple things like checking in and out from the comfort of a lounge chair over looking the ocean with a complimentry drink in my hand, talk about stress free. The Wynward Villa we stayed in was better than it looked on the website. The views were breath taking and everyhing was perfect. The complimentry golf cart to get around the island was cute and very handy. We were tired due to a late arrival and not in the mood for fancy restaurant food, so the concierge offered to go and pick up some pizzas for us from the town and brought them to our room so we could just relax. They look after you well here. The dinner at the Long Pavillion was fantasic, not crowded or noisy and the food and view were perfect.

          Having to leave and go back home, and that everywhere else I stay after this will be measured against Qualia and come up short!

          Our windward villa is very nice and clean, and it has the amazing view! All the staffs are very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay at Qualia.

          Check-out time was a bit early at 11am, and there wasn't any flexibility on that. Not sure if all hotels in Australia have the same early check-out time?
