My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2015. Arriving by buggy, we waited for the big gates to open. It was like arriving at Triassic Park! Without the dinosaurs! The entrance/foyer is absolutely stunning, the view is breathtaking. We sat down and waited to be shown to our room whilst sipping on a nice cold glass... More

This was our final stop on our Australia and New Zealand trip and was absolutely amazing. I had tempered my expectations after reading a few negative reviews on T.A. but that was totally unnecessary. The resort, staff, food, accommodations, etc were excellent all the way around. Jolin, our host, was extremely gracious and accommodating, helping us move our dinner reservations... More

I had the privilege to spend 2 nights here in a magnificent Leeward Pavillion. It was beautifully appointed with water views from the balcony. I inspected the Windward pavillion which is absolutely magnificent especially if you want more privacy as you also have your own private pool!! Each villa also has their own buggy to use during their stay. This... More

Our windward pavilion was much larger than expected, with a stunning view. The staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. When we told our representative that we were interested in birds, she brought a pair of binoculars to our pavilion! The food at Pebble Beach was very good and the service at the... More

The courteous and friendly staff of the Qualia resort represent its prime asset; in short, they are excellent and set the tone for a most enjoyable visit. The pavilions are well appointed and the whole ambience is one of luxurious relaxation. The quality of the food is high but, as others have remarked, the menu at the Pebble Beach restaurant,...

We stayed for 3 nights in a Leeward Pavilion. From the moment we arrived at the airport we were so impressed by the level of service and luxury offered. We used our time at Qualia to unwind and mostly stayed in the resort. This place is paradise and my only disappointment is that it is so very far from home... More

We stayed in the Beach House at qualia, it was our 5th time there. Amazing views, wonderful tranquillity, beautiful pool, comfy bed, everything you could want for the complete break. The staff are amazing, thoughtful, attentive but never intrusive. We've already booked our next trip.

Yes! This is high end resort time at its finest. The Charles Heidsieck greeting sets the tone wonderfully for your sojourn at Qualia. Firstly the service from the youthful team is top drawer - congratulations to management this level of attention to detail and balancing friendliness against obsequiousness doesn't come without a great back of house.
