Stayed at Akama whilst attending a business conference at the Hervey Bay Boat Club. The room and facilities at the Akama were great. I will recommend this resort to my circle of acquaintances. There is no restaurant available at the resort but the menu at the boat club nearby was great. Breakfast was a short walk to the Esplanade.

Great location, close to the Boat club, which is handy for meals. Room was spacious - with a lovely balcony, comfortable beds and a well equiped kitchen. Huge showers in both bathrooms, which was great after camping on Fraser Island. Reg on reception was very friendly and helpful with booking us onto a fishing trip. Would stay again

Thanks Dee J for the great review. It was a pleasure to welcome such keen travelers to Akama Resort for your recent stay. It was so nice to hear all about the terrific time you had on Fraser Island (even though you were all a bit ‘camped out’ by the time you arrived at Akama) Glad you enjoyed your fishing... More

Hi lovepatong Thanks for the review. It has been a pleasure to have you with us at Akama and we will be disappointed to see you leave. It does make it so much easier for the longer stays when you have plenty of room and everything you need to make you feel at home. Once again, thanks for the review.... More

We stayed at Akama Resort in Hervey Bay recently. Our hosts Chris and Henrietta were wonderful to us! They booked us a day tour with Fraser Island Tours, which we enjoyed very much!

Apartment with the lot. Spacious, modern, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Stayed in a one bedroom pool view room with beautiful balcony and outlook. Even when the weather became overcast the apartment gave you a holiday atmosphere. Owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful

This is definitely the best stay we've had in Queensland. Chris and Henrietta does an amazing job and are great hosts.

My senior colleague and I stayed there for the 2013 Jamboree, with no prior idea about where to stay at Hervey Bay... but boy! did we choose well.
