Have used Conrad from DialAFlight for years and as always he never disappoints. From start to finish it is all about customer service, brilliant. Would highly recommend using this company for all travel
Not one problem on a 6 week trip with many flights,connections and hotels - very pleased with everything you did, thank you
Everything was perfect from the apartment hotels, flights and transfers, Transfer companies were very smart and polite. Now saving for our next trip!
Felt I received great service throughout the booking process and thereafter. Would highly recommend to everyone.
Extremely good response from the DialAflight team especially Dennis. All problems resolved and services provided as planned. Will definitely use them for our next trip.
Always there for advice and help, and very knowledgable in finding the best flights and deals. Thank you guys!
Good service. Thank you.
Good advice, good service, brilliant product, totally satisfied.
Absolutely no hitches. Many thanks
Excellent trip yet again. Thank you
It’s always a pleasure to call DialAFlight. The quality of service and advice is excellent. Lincoln is brilliant. An asset to the company. Don’t ever let him leave.
I am very happy with the service DialAFlight provided. Everything went like clockwork.
Painless process! Saved me hours searching the internet.
I'll book with you next time, says it all!
The car hire firm still caught me out with extras! I had to pay for roadside recovery insurance at $7 a day.
Keep on doing what you are
Matt has organised my trips for the last 6 years. I have been on some amazing adventures, cool hotels and at reasonable prices. Can’t recommend this company highly enough.
Will always consider DialAFlight when planning a trip
Very helpful - even organised visa
Still think it’s outrageous that airlines charge to book a seat. With a party of 4 and several legs to our flights it would have cost £1000 ish to prebook seats!
Thank you Lincoln, the trip was seamless as usual. I have recommended you to friends
First class service. We look forward to using you again.
As always, our trip was organised as requested, confirmation was clear and everything went smoothly. DialAFlight colleagues were helpful, friendly and efficient.
As an older person flying on my own the follow up to the flight was very helpful
Organised our flights and stop off accommodation which all worked well.
You were all terrifically supportive on what was my first big trip after my husband’s death. Big thanks!
What more can I say?
Another good job from the DialAFlight team - many thanks.
Kylie always very helpful and friendly.
Help with visa was a great bonus.
You don't have to score a number one album to holiday like a superstar. As many well-heeled Aussies know, the uber-luxurious privately-owned Hamilton Island is a fabulously picturesque place to get away from it all – and is conveniently located just off the Queensland coast.
Hamilton, by the Great Barrier Reef, is also the largest of the inhabited Whitsunday Islands, known for their pristine whitesand beaches and crystal clear water. Taylor Swift is among its greatest fans. Along with her family and 125 members of her crew on tour in 2016, she spent several days at Hamilton's famed Qualia hotel and resort - and she took the opportunity to explore the nearby reef.
We arrived on Hamilton Island after an overnight Reefsleep on a pontoon in the middle of the sea, so we were eager to hit the island's many gorgeous beaches as quickly as possible.
However, we first visited Qualia, the island's most exclusive resort, on the northernmost point. It boasts a selection of luxurious villas such as Beach House, Windward Pavilion and Leeward Pavilion. Beach House has an elegant open-air 10-person dining area and a private infinity-edge swimming pool. Designed in an airy open-plan style, the living room has a panoramic vista of the Coral Sea.
The word Qualia means 'a collection of deeper sensory experiences' - and the hotel lives up to its name. Crafted f rom timber, sandstone and glass, it has 60 private pavilions, all discreetly hidden away behind lush greenery and strategic gates.
Fine dining options are available at Long Pavilion or Pebble Beach, where we enjoyed a feast of fresh seafood that included chilled king prawns, local reef fish, seared scallops, oysters and grilled Whitsunday bugs. (For those who don't know, bugs are a type of lobster) Pebble Beach also has a large infinity pool and cocktail bar where concoctions such as banana coladas can be whipped up on request.
THINGS TO DO
Those sandy shores are Qualia's base for a range of watersports, so if you were ever going to opt for a sea-kayaking adventure on the Coral Sea, this is probably the place you'd want to do it Other accommodation options on Hamilton Island include the adult-only Beach Club, on Catseye Beach, which comprises 57 luxurious rooms and a childfree restaurant and lounge. We stayed at the Reef View Hotel, which offers fabulous Coral Sea views, with very comfortable rooms - and friendly cockatoos who visited the balcony daily.
On our second day on Hamilton, we took off in a golf buggy - the quickest way to get around the five square-kilometre island - to explore. The relatively unmarked roads, however, do offer a bit of a navigation challenge. Still, it was a lot easier getting up to the island's famed lookout point, One Tree Hill, this way than on foot. There's no better place to enjoy a glass of wine at sunset.
There's also a bustling marina, as well as a main street with shops, restaurants and evena nightclub. Here you can buy everything from sun cream to iced coffee - although at much higher prices than on the mainland, so stock up on aloe vera before you arrive.
One afternoon was spent on a chartered yacht to a private beach, home to a national park and completely secluded. Snorkelling in the area is exceptional - or as an alternative diversion, at the island's Wild Life Sanctuary you can book in to have breakfast with a koala or kangaroo and be photographed with them.
But it was on the following morning that one of the most memorable moments of the trip occurred. We were invited to meet - and have a quick cuddle - with an adorable koala at the Beach Club resort. It was the perfect end to an idyllic taste of paradise – and also provided me with one of my most-liked Instagram posts of the year
