Although one never goes to a Relais et Chateaux chain hotel or resort with other than high expectations, this beautiful resort exceeded our expectations. The room was comfortable enough to meet the needs of someone expecting luxury but still perfectedly in place in the beach environment with privacy and great views over water and adjacent islands. The edgeless pool was...

A little piece of heaven on Earth. We spent four nights in a leeward pavilion for our honeymoon. From the moment we were met at the airport, nothing was too much trouble for the helpful qualia staff. Check in is amazing- seated on a leather lounge, glass of champagne in hand overlooking the most spectacular view on the island. The...

As the saying goes: 'You really do get what you pay for' which is true in the case of staying at Qualia. It's fairly well known that Qualia is not available to those on a budget.
