Top Ten Luxury
qualia, Hamilton Island

At qualia on Hamilton Island, in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, you barely have to lift a manicured finger or a painted toe. As well as concierge services on tap, guests are chauffeured to the resort on arrival and enjoy the use of two-seater buggy to get around the island. Once here though, you'll never want to leave the designer lounge. All 60 architect designed timber and stone pavilions are tucked under shady eucalypts on the island's northern most tip enjoying panoramas of a tie-dyed Coral Sea and neighbouring Whitsunday Islands. For those whose conscience gets the better of them, qualia does offer a range of active experiences from beach drop offs, sunset cruising, kayaking and bushwalking. If you don't want to go that far the resort also has a day spa, yoga and a gym - exclusive to guests- decked out with four treadmills, three cross trainers and resistence machines (plus if you need a little more motivation, a personal trainer or two). Best of all, you can still keep an eye out for whales in the winter sunshine.... because the gym also enjoys the same spectacular water views.
