It was Whitehaven Beach day! We got to ride in a helicopter, over to Whitehaven Beach. Such amazing views from the helicopter.
What did we do on the beach? We ate (a bottle of sparkling was provided as well but we drank that later), took photos, had a swim. I also wrote things in the sand, did a few yoga poses which didn’t quite work as it was windy and I did cartwheels!
After the 1.5 hours out at Whitehaven Beach, we headed back to our pavillion and lounged by the plunge pool, drinking champagne! This is the life, right? 😛
It’s actually good for everyone to switch off every now and then, silence the mind. Look out at the ocean. There is proof that the ocean is healing. I especially loved the sound of the waves crashing at night. So relaxing and soothing for my mind, body and soul 😀
Before dinner, we left Qualia Resort and headed out to One Tree Hill lookout to watch the sunset. They have small outdoor bar here so you can have a cocktail and enjoy watching a sunset before dinner.
For dinner, we went to Mariners, which is a seafood restaurant down at the marina. Food & Service was lovely, nothing to rave on about but definitely decent. This is something I would cook at home, especially the salmon dish. So that might tell you something about me and my dining habits 😆
Our last day at Qualia – was rather gloomy. It was cloudy and rainy. A little windy too :displeased:
Around mid afternoon, we went and got hot stone massages. The weather had somewhat improved so we used the plunge pool. Then took turns using the bathtub with a view :thumbsup:
Final dinner on Hamilton Island, we went for Italian. Romano’s Restaurant.
I think I preferred this to Mariners. We really enjoyed the Eggplant Parmesan dish – it was at this time I was inspired to make my own when I got home from holidays.
Did you do some sort of package at Qualia?
We purchased the qualia Whitehaven Beach package. It includes breakfast every morning, one gourmet dinner at Long Pavillion and the helicopter ride to Whitehaven beach. It is not a cheap holiday – if you want one of those, go to Bali. Everything at Qualia is top-notch and just amazing!
What did you do during the nights?
The pavilion had movies available and they were current releases. We watched a couple of movies each night, so it was pleasant.
How did you get around the island?
As part of the package, you are provided with a golf buggy 😀
If you have any questions about our stay at Qualia and / or thinking about going, leave a comment and I will answer your questions as best as I can 🙂
