There are a number of different accommodation options on Hamilton Island, ranging from up-scale luxury resorts to holiday rental homes.

The resort is located on the secluded northern tip of the island, the perfect location for a resort designed for total relaxation.

Each freestanding pavilion has its own sundeck or infinity pool from which guests can enjoy the breathtaking views over the Coral Sea.

The resort also comes with an excellent spa that offers a variety of top level treatments and two restaurants, one for fine dining, and one, a more relaxed experience.  There is a two night minimum stay at Qualia.

2)   Beach Club: The Beach Club is an adults only resort located right on Catseye Beach, overlooking the Coral Sea.  The sky-view-of-hamilton-islandchild-free status of the Beach Clubs makes it the perfect place for a romantic couple’s getaway.  

 

Guests can chose from 57 luxurious rooms, each equipped with an en-suite bathroom, WIFI, surround sound connectivity, and a private terrace or balcony.

 Your stay at the Beach Club also includes complimentary a la carte breakfast each morning, and access to the Beach Club Restaurant, for private, beachside dining.

The hotel boasts a beautiful, large infinity pool looking out over the Coral sea, and direct access to Catseye Beach, making it easier than ever to go from pool, to beach, to sea, and back to pool again.

Like Qualia, the Beach Club also offers it own in house spa, wumurdaylin, for guests to pamper themselves at further.  If you ever get tired of just lounging around, the Beach Club also offers complimentary access to sports equipment, including catamarans, paddle boards, windsurfers, snorkeling equipment, access to the island’s gym, and tennis court hire.

4)   Palm Bungalows: The Palm Bungalows are a set of recently renovated bungalows located in lush tropical gardens.  They are an excellent place for visitors to relax and enjoy everything Hamilton Island has to offer.

 

Each bungalow is well equipped with a kitchenette, a bar fridge, microwave, and tea and coffee making equipment.

 Each bungalow also comes with its own, private balcony.  The tropical setting gives the impression of being miles away from civilization, despite being only a short walk away from the beach, resort pools, and other Hamilton Island entertainment.

The rentals cover everything from huge villas to more basic accommodation.  No matter what you budget might be or what you might be looking for, there is a rental available for you.
