Ring Ron & his friendly helpful & dedicated team to enquire about mid week special rate. The accomodation was clean & well furnished. We had a relaxing quiet stop over. The children loved the pool. The cafe beside it was convenient place to sit & have coffee & cake whilst watching the children play in the pool. The girls had... More

A big tip to anyone wanting a different experience, look for the old places that are just being refurbished! To get a location like this anywhere else in the world, you would have to re-mortgage your house. Right on the beach, old chalets with new interiors and very quiet ( except for the surf) bliss!

We had such a great experience with the friendly and accommodating service, booking the chalet and having special requests before the wedding for the bride to get ready at the resort in the booked chalet. The resort made it very special by leaving the air conditioner on for the bride to arrive and get ready with ease, and left a... More

Had a great break at Ko Huna. The new managers go out of their way to make you feel welcome as do the restaurant staff. We had an ocean view room which was clean, stylish, spacious and as good as some international resorts we have stayed at. The self catering facilities are a really good idea as you can pop... More

My partner and I stayed here for a birthday weekend away. Despite being a local I had never been to Kohuna before. The layout of the resort is lovely and the pools are fantastic. We stayed in an ocean view villa which was great. Fully self contained with a separate bedroom to the dining/lounge area. We could not fault the... More

We had my mother's 50th birthday celebration at KoHuna last night, and what a fantastic evening it was! The food was fantastic, we had a three course meal, with alternate drop of the mains - amazing - the lamb rack were definitely a highlight, and the passionfruit cheesecake (gluten free) made on site, was delish! 😊 The live acoustic singers...

Kohuna Beachside Resort was a lovely stay for our Anniversary. Garden view room was very pleasant for a great price, with cute water features along the foot path. We had our 20mo baby with us so lots of animal life was really fun to share with him including plenty of ducks, kookaburras and even a possum. The room was nice... More

Kohuna has just reopened and we were the first to stay. The rooms were absolutely wonderfull and clean. Could ask for nothing else. Completely self contained. Highly recommended. The restaurant was also brilliant. Congratulations to all in getting the resort to a high standard.
