Condé Nast Traveler 2012 World’s Best Resort


qualia, Great Barrier Reef
One of only four properties to ever receive a flawless score in the survey's 25 year history, qualia has also become the first Australian property to ever top the prestigious list. Scoring a complete 100 in all categories including Rooms, Service, Food, Location, Design and Activities, qualia has been described by Condé Nast Traveler as 'sheer perfection' and 'flawless'.

qualia is nestled neatly into the northern tip of Hamilton Island. Its distinctive Australian style combined with a secluded location and intuitive service makes it a luxurious resort on world-class standards. Each of the beautifully appointed pavilions offers ocean views with your choice of a private plunge pool or stunning sun deck. The two exclusive restaurants within qualia both serve the freshest and finest local produce. For a truly memorable experience, Spa qualia  not only offers a range of natural treatments but also features a Swiss shower, sunken Roman baths, steam room, along with a yoga and meditation pavilion. qualia is a rare place where everything has been meticulously considered so it relaxes the mind, yet completely spoils the senses.
