Best hotel accolade for Australia’s qualia

Situated on Hamilton Island's sun-drenched northern-most tip with breath-taking views of the surrounding Whitsunday Islands and tranquil Coral Sea, qualia’s distinctive design combines a sense of place, openness and harmony that draws the outside in.

Hamilton Island’s luxury resort, qualia has been named Best Australian Hotel/Resort in the prestigious Australian Federation of Travel Agents 2014 National Travel Industry Awards.
 
Acknowledging the award, qualia’s General Manager, Matthew Taverner said: “The Oatley family’s vision for qualia has been to create a luxury haven, melding the staggering beauty of its Whitsundays location, on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef and in close proximity to the famed Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach; with a distinct style and standard of service that is uniquely Australian. We take enormous pleasure in having the Australian Federation of Travel Agents bestow this award and reward our team for continuously delivering an extraordinary experience. Such an accolade is testament to our raising the standard for Australian luxury accommodation and holding true to the Oatley family’s unique vision.” 
 
Situated on Hamilton Island’s sun-drenched northern-most tip with breath-taking views of the surrounding Whitsunday Islands and tranquil Coral Sea, qualia’s distinctive design combines a sense of place, openness and harmony that draws the outside in.
