Location

The Whitsunday collection of 74 islands enjoys an enviable location on the eastern edge of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. A lesson in quiet seclusion, it will come as a surprise that Hamilton Island, accessible by plane, helicopter or boat, is just 16km from the Queensland coast. Upon arrival, the island’s golden beaches, hidden inlets and tropical bush land can be explored in your complimentary electric golf buggy.

Accommodation

With over two thirds of the island a protected national park, accommodation is carefully spaced and offers excellent views in all directions. To complement the native eucalypts each pavilion is handcrafted from a combination of imported and local timber and stone.

Southwest-facing Leeward Pavilions look over the full expanse of the Coral Sea, while north facing Windward Pavilions present views across the waters to the Whitsunday Islands. The latter also feature an infinity edge plunge pool and separate living area while the former has its lounge adjoined. Both types come with a private deck to make the most of their idyllic setting. Look to the exclusive Beach House for a fully-featured getaway complete with a private pool and a more secluded location.

Dining

Executive Chef, Alastair Waddell, has created exciting menus that use local ingredients where possible to craft dishes that are light, fresh and healthy. His approach must be working as he’s received multiple Hotel Management Best Hotel Chef awards and was highly commended in the Best Hotel Restaurant category in 2015. As such, The Long Pavilion offers excellent breakfast and lunches while its evening meals are exclusively presented as four, six, eight or ten course degustation menus. Think dishes such as sashimi grade fresh Australian fish expertly matched with world-class wines.

For more casual dining, head to Pebble Beach for a comprehensive menu of light meals and platters in a waterfront location. Alternatively, dine in private with all day service in your pavilion.

Facilities

To make the most out of your stay, be sure to enjoy one of the many treatments on offer at the resort’s spa. There are also two swimming pools, group yoga sessions, a fully equipped gym and a library meaning your stay will be as relaxing as possible. For access to the reef, qualia’s concierge team can organise private charter cruises to spend the day snorkelling over coral gardens and diving with tropical marine life. Or, just stay on terra firma and make the most of the island’s pristine beaches.
