Condé Nast #1 Hotel

Conde Nast, arguably the most trusted name in travel, started its Reader’s Choice poll in 1986.  At the time, the highest score was 87.0 (a remarkable feat nonetheless).  Today, a score of 87.0 doesn’t get you anywhere near the top 100 list. 

Taking the spot at #1 is a hotel so impressive, it received a 100.0 score in every category rated- rooms, service, food, location, design and activities. Which luxurious hotel received the unprecedented perfect score?

Located in the Great Barrier Reef on Hamilton Island

The name means “a collection of deeper sensory experiences” in latin, and the resort does not disappoint. 
Seeking to marry inside and out, the architecture uses natural, local materials and offers a unique sense of openness and harmony.  Fabrics and patters inspired by nature adorn the interiors.  The resort is divided into 60 individual pavilions, each with a breath-taking ocean view, private sundeck and private infinity-edge pool.

Prefer to get out and explore? Qualia offers diving and snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, yachting, water sports, golf, personal golf carts for exploring the island, sunset cruises and more.

But no sensory experience would be complete without fresh and innovative cuisine.  Guests can enjoy the ultimate in fine dining with the Long Pavillion’s seven course dinner and an accompanying wine cellar or a more casual Pebble Beach dinner on the water’s edge.
