Two Supermodels Give Seal of Approval to qualia
Yasmin described qualia a "One of the most luxurious places I've ever visited. qualia is cool and understated, but not intimidating. I'm sure I will come here again. qualia really is a special place. Exclusive, yes, but not at all pretentious."

During their stay, Le Bon and Elliott spent their time lounging by their private plunge pool, relaxing at Spa qualia (Yasmin enjoyed a 'LI'TYA Kodo' rhythmic body massage inspired by Aboriginal techniques) as well as savoring the resort's selection of fine food and wines.

Gail Elliott, founder and designer of the stylish Australian label 'Little Joe Woman', plans to return to Hamilton Island in August (24th – 27th) for one of the highlights of Australia's events calendar, Audi Hamilton Island Race Week. Gail will be showcasing her latest fashion collection at Hamilton Island Yacht Club which will be followed by a styling session and trunk show at qualia.

Each of the resort's elegant one-bedroom pavilions is each set among eucalyptus trees with postcard views of the idyllic blue, green waters of the Whitsundays. Hamilton Island can be accessed directly from all Australia's international east coast gateway cities in under three hours. 'qualia' is deliberately spelt with a lower case 'q' as it is a reflection of the relaxed, understated nature of this property.
