SWEET TREATS FROM QTIQUE:

QT Hotels & Resorts quirky boutique (QTique) features an eclectic mix of eccentricities, luxuries and necessities with contemporary Australian designers sharing space with old fashioned favourites.   An exhibition-styled showcase of hand-sourced delights, QTique serves up a stunning range of goods curated by Melbourne-based stylist Anna Roberts.

spaQ FOR LOVERS:
