The name of this luxurious seaside retreat translates to "a collection of deeper sensory experiences" in Latin. At qualia, these experiences are pursued at a relaxed pace and washed in idyllic luxury. 

Property Details 

Inspired to draw the outside in at qualia, Australian architect Chris Beckingham has created open, peaceful spaces that stimulate the senses and complement the natural surrounds. Native eucalyptus neighbors the gracious freestanding pavilions, handcrafted with a mix of magnificent timber and stone with interiors that bring nature into the artwork and fabrics. 

Leeward pavilions include a private sundeck, with perfect views of the incredible island sunsets, while the Windward pavilions feature a plunge pool and views over the Coral Sea. The en suite baths are finished in fine stone with separate shower and plenty of room for two. As an additional luxury, each accommodation has their own two-seater golf cart for effortlessly navigating the island. For expanded entertaining areas, a private full-size pool and separate guest quarters, indulge in the privacy and exclusivity of the Beach House.
