Stayed the night after a lunch event. Waited 20 minutes at counter to check in before any one attended the counter. Understaffed as the guy mentioned to me. Room was over priced for what it was, very out dated but clean so that's good. Attended the Restarant for dinner that night but not open and we were without food as... More

I love staying in the northern beaches when visiting Mackay and am so happy to see my favourite venue back up and running again. It feels as though you have the whole beach to yourself when you stay at Kohuna. It's private secluded and great value for money and now it's been refurbished it's even better!

Accommodation is quiet and set amongst well kept gardens. Lovely pool area and restaurant. The current manager was extremely helpful and showed us through a number of cabins to best fit us. The staff were wonderful. Definitely recommend this place for all.

Ring Ron & his friendly helpful & dedicated team to enquire about mid week special rate. The accomodation was clean & well furnished. We had a relaxing quiet stop over. The children loved the pool. The cafe beside it was convenient place to sit & have coffee & cake whilst watching the children play in the pool. The girls had... More

A big tip to anyone wanting a different experience, look for the old places that are just being refurbished! To get a location like this anywhere else in the world, you would have to re-mortgage your house. Right on the beach, old chalets with new interiors and very quiet ( except for the surf) bliss!

We had such a great experience with the friendly and accommodating service, booking the chalet and having special requests before the wedding for the bride to get ready at the resort in the booked chalet. The resort made it very special by leaving the air conditioner on for the bride to arrive and get ready with ease, and left a... More

Had a great break at Ko Huna. The new managers go out of their way to make you feel welcome as do the restaurant staff. We had an ocean view room which was clean, stylish, spacious and as good as some international resorts we have stayed at. The self catering facilities are a really good idea as you can pop... More

My partner and I stayed here for a birthday weekend away. Despite being a local I had never been to Kohuna before. The layout of the resort is lovely and the pools are fantastic. We stayed in an ocean view villa which was great. Fully self contained with a separate bedroom to the dining/lounge area. We could not fault the... More
