I stayed two separate nights at the Akama Resort in Hervey Bay, staying with extended family in a 3-bedroom apartment. Even before I arrived, the communication from the hosts (Chris, Henriette and Regina) was amazing. I asked them a lot of questions via email, and always received prompt and helpful responses. On arrival, the hosts were expecting us, knew who... More

Our apartment was in the corner and at the ground floor of the building. It's really big and comfortable but has no view. The room has full kitchen and laundry facilities. Bathroom is pretty big. The location is ok, near the wharf and about 10 minutes on a cab (cost $20). Hervey Bay is quite spread out. There's cafes at... More

We stayed here late September 2014 - 2 adults and 2 children. Manager, Chris, was exceptionally helpful and organised our whale and Fraser Island tours at a cheaper rate than we'd been able to secure. Apartment was really good with pool views and bi-fold doors to the balcony. We were only on the 4th floor but still had glimpses of... More

Stayed here with my family for 2 nights on the basis of the trip advisor reviews. Location is at the top end of Hervey Bay, opposite the Marina, so it is ideal for whale watching/Fraser Island trips but you will really need a car to drive to other areas, especially for restaurants. Hervey Bay itself has no real town centre... More

Once you have stayed here - you won't want to look anywhere else. Stunning views over the water and landscape. Heated pool and spa. The apartment itself is fabulous. Think clean white lines with gentle splashes of colour, light and airy, with modern decor and it's so very relaxing. Big bi fold doors open up to a wonderful balcony with... More
