You took such beautiful care of all our needs. We loved the free non-alcoholic drinks, the ice cream by the pool and use of buggies. These inclusions really made a difference. The champagne on arrival was amazing, something we won't forget.

Privacy when required. Excellent food and wines.Service by all the staff incredibly courteous, prompt attention to requests. I noted this did not change when I observed the service given to a rather rude, demanding gentleman at Pebble Beach restaurant - the staff were admirable. We enjoyed the drinks with meeting the manager and the opportunity to speak to the chef and compliment him directly on our enjoyment of his creative degustation meals.

I love the qualia 'bubble' - it is a wonderful escape from the real world. Once you get behind the 'gates' it is instant relaxation.

Our pavilion was beautiful and private & watching the sunrise every morning was uplifting.. We felt as if we were the only people around most of the time. The staff were fantastic and made everything easy and seamless.

The setting is hard to beat. Pavillions are exquisite, as are all public areas of the resort. Beautifully designed and furnished. Never stayed in a more spectacular setting I don't think. I also love how you've maintained the garden and the resulting plethora of wildlife, butterflies etc. Alex who served us dinner several times was a true professional and made some excellent wine suggestions. Particular thanks and recognition to him for his outstanding service. Also the man who I believe runs the spa (his name escapes me!) he had an incredible therapeutic background and provided real relief to my husband's back which had been giving him problems for a long time. He is yet to find a physio who can do as good a job in Sydney!

The amazing 10 course degustation dinner was a winner. Also thoroughly enjoyed the sunset cruise ...a bit thumbs up to Rex and Arki for the amazing experience, certainly one to remember. Also the Thursday night drinks on the helipad was a great way to mingle and meet with other guests. Our second visit to Qualia , and certainly not the last.

The attention to detail was amazing, the thought and consideration put into every aspect of our stay was amazing, my favourite being the personalised in room reading material. The staff were amazing, nothing was ever too much trouble. There was one small issue with delivery of our Whitehaven tour tickets to the pavilion the day after we did the tour, other than that the service was exceptional, the staff so friendly and accommodating, you made leaving extremely difficult.

We came to Qualia to simply relax and spend time together after a very busy time at home. Qualia provided a perfect venue and our objective was achieved.

The service was incredible. We have had the great pleasure to visit some amazing resorts. None of them can hold a candle to the Qualia service. The greeting at arrival; the General Manager's service and reception; the pool service; the extra touches; the food service and the activities are all perfectly delivered. The employees are warm, engaging, smart and highly trained. We cannot say enough good things. We love the beach drop-off idea and wish we had the time to participate in that activity.

Adults only is an amazing concept. I am a mother of 3 and I really enjoyed this break from my own kids as well as other people's kids

Everything. The staff and the resort are the incredible. The service was perfect, and done with a smile, not because they had to. I loved staying there. The only thing I didn't like was leaving!!
