We spent 3 nights here in July 2014 and used it as a base for Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island. Our tours were booked by the hotel which was extremely convenient. We arrived late so followed the pre-arranged procedure for parking underground and accessing our apartment. We were very happy with the apartment which was spacious, clean, extremely well... More

Regina was fantastic. She booked us in and helped with the trips. The room was beautiful, room 2, which took us to the pool. It was clean everywhere, except for behind the bed and bedside tables. The rest was spotless. It's a fantastic 4 star self catering accommodation. The apt is only a 3 min walk to the marina. We... More

I contacted the Resort first up to book a room for a 3 day weekend. Spoke to Regina who was extremely helpful. She ended up booking our accommodation, a Fraser Island day tour and a Whale watching trip all on the one phone call, fantastic. On arrival, the room was very spacious, clean and tidy with a well equipped kitchen,... More

As soon as we arrived at Aklama Resort, our expectations were exceeded. We're seasoned travelers, used to staying at some of the best hotels in the world (including the Hyatt Regency Group in London and across Australia). We couldn't have been better greeted by the staff, who gave us lots of information and helped us to chose our whale watching... More

Used as a base for a trip to Fraser Island. Foolishly I had hired a 4x4 on the Gold Coast but hadn't checked whether the rental company would allow me to take it on the Island. Reception spotted I had a rental, told me to check and, when I found I couldn't take the car, immediately found me a place... More

One of the biggest 1br. apartments in the world - immaculate & modern. Great position virtually on the marina [ where the whale watching boats depart ] & excellent restaurants on the water. Proprietors very friendly & helpful. We spent 4 days there - a great place to stay.

Hi Stan What a lovely review. Thank you so much. You were one of a number of guests over the last few weeks who extended their stay after they arrived – this is always encouraging, as it means our guests are obviously pleased with their choice of accommodation and our location.

Stayed in a 2br pool view apartment as no ocean view left. We were very happy. From my initial enquiry, assisting with booking activities, checking-in and out everything was positive. The apartment was very large as were both the bathrooms. The only thing we couldn't find was an iron but never bothered to ask as hey we were on holidays... More

We stayed at Akama for two nights as a couple for a last minute getaway and to do some whale-watching. From the first interaction, I was impressed by Akama.

Beautiful 2 bedroom apartment. Very modern and clean with excellent facilities. Close to Marina and walking distance to quite a few restaurants. Only complaint would be that the 2nd bedroom had single beds made into a queen bed and these were hard and not particularly comfortable. The managers were really helpful and obliging and recommended great whale watching boat which... More
