Qualia Great Barrier Reef

Whitesundays, Australia


Nestled in perfect isolation, amongst the islands of the Great Barrier Reef, Qualia and it's resort precincts are designed to engage all of your senses whilst making the most of the natural tranquility. 


Just a stone’s throw off the Queensland coast, Qualia sits in the heart of the Great Barrier and can be reached in only a few hours by plane from international gateway cities on Australia’s east coast. 

Harmonious Architecture & Stylish Interiors; Qualia’s harmonious design is the work of Australian architect Chris Beckingham. His philosophy was to create a luxurious Australian retreat that stimulates the senses and draws the outside in. 

The resulting design combines a unique sense of space, openness and harmony. Set amongst native Eucalyptus, each pavilion has been handcrafted from the finest imported and local timber and stone. Water Front Accommodation - From one-bedroom freestanding pavilions to the privacy of a secluded retreat, Qualia offers three types of accommodation to suit your individual taste.
