A hop off the Australian northeast coast, on peaceful Hamilton
Island, lies ultra-private Qualia.
The series of 'pavilions' - crafted from timber, limestone and
slate - have captivating views while rooms are huge, with enormous
beds and designer bathrooms.
The spa offers rituals (in keeping with Qualia's name, which means
'a deeper sensory experience') called Signature Ceremonies.
Once you've been buffed, stroked and soaked into bliss, continue
your sensory discovery at the hotel's restaurant, Long Pavilion,
with views of the Coral Sea and the finest Australian
Enjoy just-caught local fish as you listen to the waves and look
out at the setting sun. It's a feast for the senses.
Wow factor: The freedom of having your own golf buggy to explore
