A very big " Thank You to Chris, Henriette and Regina" we have just had the most amazing 4 day break at your beautiful resort. From my very first phone conversation with you right through to book out this morning nothing was too much trouble for you. Thank you for taking care of our Whale watch tour, it was just... 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

Hi QueenMargarita Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Nice to read that you were pleased with our location and that you took advantage of the beautiful esplanade cycle path – great way to explore our lovely town. As with all the self-catering properties in Hervey Bay we do not offer daily servicing but as you correctly pointed... 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

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.
