From the moment we arrived we were very happy. Room was very clean and modern. Great size and everything you needed to be comfortable. Staff were very friendly also. Would stay again and recommend to friends and family.

We chose Akama solely on TA reviews and weren't disappointed with the 3 bedroom penthouse on the 6th floor, which was the ideal space for a long weekend (4 night) family gathering - 3 couples and one child. The views across the yacht harbour; the bay; and further out to Fraser Island were mesmerizing. Master bedroom very spacious with own... More

Amazing amazing amazing...really not much more to say. Although I didn't swim in the pool it looked inviting. Room was very large with separate 'wings' for the bedrooms. Large amazing deck. The kitchen stocked everything you would need and was beautiful. Room was exceptionally clean & looked like it had never been slept in!

Our stay at Akama was just beautiful. The 1br apartment was very spacious, clean and provided a relaxing atmosphere. Chris was a great host and helped us with booking tours. We will stay at Akama next time we visit Hervey Bay.

From the moment we stepped in to the moment we checked out, the team at Akama Resort took great care of us! With beautiful facilities and everything you could possibly need within the room, we had little reason to step foot outside.
