Of all the island resorts in the Whitsundays region of Queensland, Hamilton Island consistently provides the best accommodation. Over the years, the island has developed more and more accommodation and over recent years, this has mostly been at the luxury end of the market. The original resort accommodation that was built by Kieth Williams, with the exception of the Reef View Hotel and the Whitsunday Holiday Apartments, has mostly been taken over as staff accommodation and the latter two have been fully renovated a number of times and have been maintained at an excellent standard.
On the marina side of the island the development has mostly been in the form of self contained apartments and these tend towards the luxury end of the market. many of them have frontage onto the marina itself providing excellent accommodation for those guests who bring their boats with them. Since the island has been owned and managed by the Oatley family there have been some sensational improvements. Nearby Dent Island has been brought under Hamilton Islands management and a fantastic new championship golf course has been constructed there. it is accessed by a short ferry ride form the Hamilton Island marina. There is a magnificent new clubhouse and plans for condominium style accommodation surrounding parts of the golf course itself.
The Oatleys have also added two new luxury developments to the Hamilton Island accommodation list. At the northern end of the island is the magnificent new Qualia resort. Qualia is only for couples but provides private bures, each overlooking the waters surrounding the island and across to Whitsunday Island. There is a superb restaurant and a golf buggy to get around included in the tariff and guests can also dine at any of the other restaurants on the island price included as well. Alongside the new Hamilton island yacht Club are the new yacht Club Villas. This is basically Qualia with kids as no children are allowed at Qualia itself. The Yacht Club Villa's are ultra modern multi story construction with a lagoon swimming pool and walking distance to everything the island has to offer.
There is now Hamilton Island accommodation to suit the budget and requirements of almost every traveler.
