Hamilton Island’s luxury resort qualia has been named the Best Australian Resort in Luxury Travel Magazine‘s annual Gold List Award. The prestigious awards recognise the ultimate in luxury travel across Australia and the world, and are voted for by readers of the magazine.

Located on the secluded northern-most tip of Hamilton Island, qualia is the epitome of luxe – it’s a private enclave away from the crowds, serving up stylish and relaxed luxury in the heart of the Whitsundays.

‘qualia’ is actually latin for ‘a collection of deeper sensory experiences’ which couldn’t be more fitting. Relaxation is the name of the game here, with infinity pools and mesmerising spa treatments making you feel like the real MVP of this getaway.

Not only did qualia win the Best Australian Resort title, it also scooped up the Best Australian Romantic Property gong too. Wonder why? WAIT, NO WE DON’T, JUST LOOK AT IT.
