Queensland's qualia named tops

qualia

qualia, Hamilton Island's world class luxury resort on the Great Barrier Reef, has been named the Best in the World and Best Resort in the Oceania region in the 2012 Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards.

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 survey. 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'.

A unique Australian expression of world-class luxury, qualia's vision to deliver an exceptional experience from award-winning cuisine to the finest resort leisure facilities anywhere in the world sees it topping a list that includes many of the world's most highly recognised luxury hotel chains and names.

Situated on Hamilton Island's sun-drenched northern-most tip with breathtaking views of the surrounding Whitsunday Islands and tranquil Coral Sea, qualia is set amongst native eucalypts. The 60 luxurious pavilions are an indulgent space to unwind in, with either a sundeck or private infinity-edge plunge pool.

Guests of qualia also have full access to Hamilton Island's world-class Yacht Club and 18-hole championship golf course on neighbouring Dent Island.
