Top Secret

Mouthwatering breakfasts, served on your balcony to the serenade of gentle exhalations of passing whale pods, are the only fitting way to begin a day where the sole objective is to lose track of time.

Origins

For six months since the devastation of Cyclone Debbie, Qualia has been discretely rebuilding and refining its already admired luscious estate; general manager Kyle LaMonica oversees a flawless operation that perfectly integrates high end touches reminiscent of the largest of operators, with the abundance of natural beauty and sense of seclusion that so distinguishes this idyllic retreat.

The Review

On an island famed for the timeless beauty of verdant greenery tumbling into turquoise waters haloing crystalline beaches, Qualia manages to surpass even this great magnificence of nature. Even the most accustomed of jetsetters will find themselves spoiled for choice in how to best luxuriate; the dilemma of either refreshing oneself with a beachfront degustation menu of seasonal delicacies and tropical staples, unwinding in an immersive hour or two with a gifted masseuse, or taking pause in a moment of sanguine contemplation with a lovingly crafted custom cocktail sipped recumbent from the edge of a sunkissed veranda, are of course best resolved by simply enjoying them all.

The transition from the fast paced to the serene is smoothed by attentive staff, as crisply presented and unobtrusively obliging as the grounds and private villas they attend. Here thoughtful touches prevail; architectural revelations delight as touches of buttons lower walls and invite immersion in the tranquility of uninterrupted sparkling ocean views, and a nightly turn down service includes soporific herbal teas left steeping in the lounge, and the most wickedly delicious of handcrafted chocolates sitting innocently next to soothing lemon oil infusions left simmering in a candlelit bathroom. Eventually, beguiled by the view of passing yachts flitting beyond the horizon of your private infinity pool, complimentary personal motorized carts become intrepid vessels of exploration, rapidly transporting the newly energised traveler to the delights of a local marina well stocked in fine dining and exclusive boutiques, or to picturesque rambling bushtrails piercing the heart of this palm fringed island. Meeting points for the plentiful excursions to nearby reefs, untouched beaches or general seafaring bonhomie, are all just moments away, and of course all are delivered with the finesse of a destination that truly knows how to impress.
