Mice Net : August 2009
mice.net top selection The Long Pavilion - qualia The Long Pavilion - qualia name Qualia pays testimony to its Latin origins, meaning “a collection of sensory experiences.” Qualia features 60 elegant and very private one-bedroom pavilions accessible only to the resort’s guests. Each pavilion has been carefully designed by Australian architect Chris Beckingham to blend into the natural environment, giving the resort a unique sense of space and harmony. The “windward” pavilions include their own plunge-pools and are over four times the size of an average hotel room. If guests can drag themselves out of their rooms they can indulge at Spa Qualia, a stunning sixroom spa with four single treatment rooms and two couples rooms complete with Roman baths located on the pinnacle of the point. There is also a state-of-the art gym and yoga centre right on the water’s edge and two infinity pools. Two restaurants open only to Qualia guests – the elegant Long Pavilion restaurant and Pebble Beach offer exceptional cuisine. Open since August 2007, Qualia is available for sole use and group incentives. Visit www. qualiaresort.com.au to learn more.
