Qualia, Hamilton Island, Australia

By Will Grice

Australia’s Unesco-listed Great Barrier Reef is among the world’s most astounding sites, and Qualia is right on its edge on the northernmost tip of Hamilton Island. Open-sided pavilions sit amid the Australian eucalyptus of this resort’s private precinct, with local timber, sandstone and glass reflecting the surroundings, and light-filled rooms opening out onto sundecks with infinity pools.

The resort’s isolated setting is perfect for both relaxation and exploration. By day, unwind with treatments incorporating Australian products in the elevated spa, or sail to neighboring islands on Qualia’s motor yacht. Then dine on Modern Australian cuisine at fine dining restaurant Long Pavilion.

Top suite: Beach House from $4,880 per night

When to go: See humpback and minke whales during the June-to-September breeding season.
