HAMILTON Island has the winning feeling after making a big impact at last night's 2011 Australian Gourmet Traveller awards.

The popular Whitsundays destination picked up three awards in the national readers choice competition.

The island's six-star qualia was named best resort and best spa, while Hamilton Island was crowned the best family experience destination.

Hamilton Island spokeswoman Jill Collins, who attended the ceremony in Melbourne last night, said she was "delighted" with the results.
