We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Akama. We spent most of our time lazing around the pool or in the spa. The hosts sold us a trip to Fraser Island and it was well worth the trip. All and all a lovely two weeks. I can't wait to go back.

Stayed at Akama Resort in October. Excellent accommodation. They recommended a Fraser Island tour for us - this was quite an experience - we loved it. We will stay here again for sure. Fraser Island was beautiful and so was Hervey Bay. We can't wait to go back real soon.

We wife and I stayed here over Christmas in 2014 for our honeymoon and loved it. After booking online from so far away, you are always skeptical and praying that your accommodations are as beautiful as they look. This place met our needs wonderfully.

We took the smaller Penthouse on the top floor, for 2 families with 3 children between us. The balcony was small but useable with a supplied BBQ and the 3 bedroom unit was very comfortable. It is just acros the road from Urangan Harbour so is very convenient if you are going out whale watching. The pool area is good... More
