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. 

Product ranges vary between QT locations and are available to peruse and purchase in the lobby of each property.  The QTique 2016 Valentine's Day Gift Guide presents a sweet selection sweet treats including colourful, comfy 'Happy Pants', hand-crafted earrings, relaxation-inducing colouring books and peppery all-natural massage oil.  Those unable to visit before cupid comes a calling are invited to order items from our gift guide by emailing


Contemporary, designer day spa 'spaQ' by QT Hotels and Resorts is offering a little free love for those planning to treat loved ones to a spa-escape.  With spaQ gift vouchers being one of the hot ticket items during the season of romance, spa lovers will have $50 deducted from gift voucher purchases over $300 by using the promotion code 'CALLMEQPID'.
