What it’s like to holiday like Taylor Swift on Australia’s Hamilton Island

January 8th, 2016 by admin | Filed under Blog.

You don’t have to measure a series one manuscript to holiday like a superstar.

As many well-heeled Aussies know, a uber-luxurious secretly owned Hamilton Island is presumably a many lifelike place to get divided from it all – and is conveniently located usually off of a country’s Queensland coast.

Hamilton, that is situated along a Great Barrier Reef, is also a largest of a inhabited Whitsunday Islands, famous for their primitive white-sand beaches and transparent clear water. So it should substantially come as no warn that a review isle depends Taylor Swift among a fans.

Hamilton Island is a 5 kilometre-square island located in a Whitsundays, in Queensland, and is home to 4 resorts, including a famed Qualia

Just final year, Taylor, along with her family and 125 members of her debate crew, spent several days staying on Hamilton – specifically, during a famed Qualia hotel and review – and exploring a circuitously reef.

But lounging in a incessant fever isn’t all there is to do on a island – it’s a H2O competition lovers paradise.

Between a scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing and helicopter tours, visitors can utterly literally knowledge a Great Barrier Reef from all angles.

And, of course, no revisit to Australia is finish yet a claim snap with a koala or kangaroo. Thankfully, Hamilton Island creates it easy interjection to a Wild Life Sanctuary. Handlers will move a darling marsupials to your hotel drift for a print op, or alternatively, we can book in to have breakfast with them instead.

On a island, visitors should conduct to a WILD LIFE sanctuary. The WILD LIFE refuge can arrange a event for we to cuddle with a koala, like MailOnline Travel's Katie.

We arrived on Hamilton Island after an overnight Reefsleep on a pontoon in a center of a sea, so we were fervent to strike a island’s many pleasing beaches as fast as possible.

However, a initial sequence of business was to revisit Qualia, a island’s many renouned – and many disdainful – resort, situated on Hamilton’s northernmost point. (Also a hotel that Taylor Swift and her environment stayed in, of course.)

Although it’s different that of Qualia’s sensuous villas Taylor and her organisation opted for, it’s believed that a thespian stayed in possibly a Beach House, Windward Pavilion or Leeward Pavilion. None would be a bad choice.

However, one of a resort’s many isolated choices, Beach House, is truly singular – and also a many costly at $5,000 AUD (£2,400) and $6,000 AUD (£2,900) per night during a rise holiday season.

Not usually does it exaggerate an superb alfresco 10-person dining area, yet there is also a private infinity-edge swimming pool from that to take in a overwhelming views.

Designed in a light and ethereal open-plan style, a executive vital room further opens to a monumental perspective of a Coral Sea.

The categorical residence facilities one atmospheric bedroom, as good as a mill lavatory with apart shower, yet a one-of-a-kind room also has an adjoining guest pavilion. The guesthouse can nap dual – in possibly a aristocrat or twin beds – and has a possess en apartment and private deck, as well

The word Qualia itself means ‘a collection of deeper feeling experiences’ – and a hotel certain does live adult to a name.

Crafted from timber, sandstone and glass, a admirably Australian review is home to 60 private pavilions, nonetheless you’d never know, as they are all discreetly dark divided behind sensuous greenery and vital gates.

And while it’s wholly probable to simply keep to yourself in such a isolated villa – many of that come finish with thrust pools and sundecks – there’s also copiousness some-more to knowledge via a review and island.

Fine dining options are accessible during Long Pavilion or Pebble Beach, that is where we tucked into a feast of uninformed seafood that enclosed cold aristocrat prawns, internal embankment fish, parched scallops, oysters and grilled Whitsunday bugs. (For those who don’t know, bugs are slipper lobsters, closely associated to Rocklobsters.)

Pebble Beach also boasts a vast forever pool and cocktail bar where singular concoctions, such as banana coladas, can be churned adult on request.

And those sandy shores are Qualia’s bottom for all H2O sports, so if we were ever going to opt for a sea-kayaking journey on a Coral Sea, this is substantially a place you’ll wish to do it.

Outside of Qualia’s confines, there are also copiousness of other accommodation options.

There’s a adult-only Beach Club, located right on Catseye Beach, that is comprised of 57 sensuous bedrooms and a possess child-free grill and lounge.

We, however, stayed during a Reef View Hotel, one of a island’s tallest buildings, that offers forlorn Coral Sea Views.

The updated room was gentle – and a cockatoos who visited a patio daily were accessible – but, admittedly, we didn’t spend many time indoors.

On a second day on Hamilton, we took off in a golf cart – a quickest approach to get around a 5 square-kilometre island – to explore. The comparatively unmarked roads, however, do offer a bit of a navigation challenge. Still, we substantially don’t wish to travel adult to a island’s famed surveillance point, One Tree Hill, on foot. Nevertheless, there’s no improved place to suffer a potion of prosecco during sunset.

There’s also a bustling marina, as good as a categorical travel with shops, restaurants and even a nightclub. Here we can buy all from object cream to iced coffee, yet beware: equipment that have been brought on to Hamilton do cost some-more than they would on a mainland. (So batch adult on aloe vera before we arrive.)

Our afternoon was spent on a franchised Sunsail yacht to a private beach – not a famed Whitehaven, unfortunately, due to miss of time. 

It didn’t unequivocally matter yet as a inlet, that we eventually reached by dinghy, was totally secluded. The void island was indeed home to a National Park, and nonetheless visitors could camp, there weren’t any when we arrived.

Snorkelling is pronounced to be well-developed in a area, yet after 24 hours spent on a pontoon in a sea, we were unequivocally prepared for some time on a beach. Needless to say, a afternoon upheld distant too quickly.

That evening, we motionless to take advantage of a nightlife that Hamilton has to offer. After a tasty cooking during Asian tapas restaurant, Coca Chu, we visited Marina Tavern for a late-night drink.

The Reef View Hotel also has an considerable run bar and a espresso martinis are really value a try.

But it was a following morning that one of a many noted moments of a outing occurred. Much like Taylor Swift and her family, we were invited to accommodate – and have a discerning cuddle – with an darling koala during a Beach Club resort.

It was a ideal top to an halcyon 48 hours in bliss – and also supposing me with one of my most-liked Instagram posts of a year.
