Spa Qualia, Hamilton Island

Tel: 61-7-4948-9484

Inside the Great Barrier Reef's newest ultra-private luxury resort, Spa Qualia has an understated architecture and a magnificent island setting. Six treatment rooms—including couples rooms with sunken baths offering sweeping views from the ocean to the islands beyond—fan out from a covered courtyard and are linked by wooden walkways. Treatments range from the Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel ($150) to the Bularri Yarrul, or "warm stone" in the Kamilaroi Aboriginal language, massage ($210), and all are designed to dissolve stress. Book ahead: The place gets busy (massages, $140–$210).
