A waterfront resort on the northern tip of Hamilton Island, qualia Great Barrier Reef bares the moniker of Australia's greatest marine wonder. Guests here enjoy minimal design, for maximum views.

Grab your fins and get in the water — it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
qualia Great Barrier Reef is devoted to the dual arts of relaxation and recreation. Housed on Hamilton Island just off of Australia's Queensland coast, this luxurious island retreat sits within the picturesque tranquility of the Coral Sea and Whitsundays, and caters to the most discerning of tastes. While the library, private dining room, and two restaurants offer quiet diversions, it's the sublime infinity edge pools with full bar service that invite serious introspection.

Although there is no limit to the varieties of ways to enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Coral Sea, from kayaking to yachting to sailing your own Hobie Cat, it is the world-class diving experience of the Great Barrier Reef that beckons even the most indulgent of travelers. So go on, climb out of your pool, and into some flippers. A bigger splash awaits.
