Queensland’s 7 Most Sophisticated Stays

Dec 15, 2021

Harper’s Bazaar home and travel issue looks at luxury Queensland stays in ‘Sun yourself in style at Queensland’s 7 most sophisticated stays’, featuring qualia, Spicers Peak Lodge and Lizard Island.

“If you’re after a holiday where the most strenuous activity includes leaving bed for a pineapple juice by the pool, qualia is the place for you. This high-end resort often features in lists for the world’s best (in fact it was the world’s best back in 2012) and it’s easy to understand why. Firstly, its location. qualia sits on the northern tip of Hamilton Island and is juxtaposed between the resort’s beautifully-manicured gardens and 30 acres of native bushland, giving the environment a raw yet refined feel…

…If Spicers Peak teaches us anything — it’s that lodges aren’t exclusively for alpine regions. Considered a castle above the clouds, this impressive mountainous retreat is reminiscent of properties featured on Architectural Digest. It’s a trek to reach this treasure, however, as it hides behind a windy 12-kilometre dirt road. While you may feel like giving up given the slow speeds needed to safely travel up there, it’s well worth the journey…

… If you’re ever stranded on an island, pray that it’s this one. Lizard Island has just one resort (its namesake) and is every bit secluded, stylish and suave. Way up north near Cairns, guests must take an hour flight from the city to the small and remote island. But the short sky trip allows you to truly take in the scale and radiance of the reef before submerging yourself, if you so desire to scuba.” – Hayley Peppin, Harper’s Bazaar.
