14 June 2011: Hamilton Island has increased the number of privately owned Yacht Club Villas
available as luxury holiday properties. The new Villas have been beautifully decorated by
internationally recognised Australian stylist Claire Delmar.
“The Yacht Club Villas have continued to receive strong demand from the luxury holiday market
and will now be increasingly available to families and groups of friends looking to enjoy a
unique, high-end holiday property,” said Glenn Bourke, CEO of Hamilton Island.
Designed by pre-eminent Australian architect Walter Barda, the Villas are exclusively linked to
the iconic new Hamilton Island Yacht Club. Each Yacht Club Villa guest has access to a range of
facilities including the landscaped lagoon swimming pool, the Hamilton Island Yacht Club gym,
as well as priority tee times for the 18-hole championship Golf Club located on neighbouring
Dent Island. Guests also receive complimentary use of a four-seater golf buggy for the duration
of their stay and families with children under the age of 12 can take advantage of the Kids Stay
& Eat Free program. In addition, guests receive privileged access to premium island facilities and amenities via the Island Concierge including the restaurants, Spa qualia which is located at the exclusive qualia resort, and VIP Hamilton Island airport to villa transfers.
The Oatley family commissioned Australian interior stylist Claire Delmar to infuse her unique
and minimalistic sense of style into the newly available holiday Villas. Her approach
complements the look and feel of the other Villas which were decorated by Meryl Hare,
Swinging Monkey and Coco Republic.
A well-recognised name in design, Claire has worked for an array of leading Australian women’s,
lifestyle and interior magazines.
Tasked with creating a feeling of comfort and luxury while celebrating a destination that is
quintessentially Australian, Claire took inspiration from the colours and textures of Hamilton
Island’s diverse landscape to create a harmonising interior space that showcases the Island’s
“The key to achieving the additional new look on offer at these Villas was to make sure they
complemented rather than competed with the beauty of the surroundings. I needed to ensure
the Villas remained luxurious, yet casual, offering a ‘home away from home’ setting that guests
look for in holiday accommodation,” said Ms Delmar.
Set over three or four levels, the Villas capture spectacular views of Dent Passage towards the
Whitsunday Islands. All include a spacious open plan living/dining room, state-of-the art
gourmet kitchen with Miele appliances, four bedrooms and four bathrooms, comprising master
suite and walk-in robe and bathroom, two additional double bedrooms with ensuite, and a
fourth bedroom/flexible space or media room. In addition, the Villas have separate laundries
and fully ducted air conditioning.
The Yacht Club Villas are available from $1,200 per night for a 3-night minimum stay.
