We only had 2 nights at the Akama Resort while our son attended the UK Trials, but it was the best experience we've had with accommodation in a while. The 3 bedroom, self contained apartment was amazing. Modern, clean and all the rooms are huge. It was a shame we only had 2 nights.

First class rooms which a large, bright and airy. All the modern conveniences of a self contained apartment. Located within a 5 minute walk from the Marina (where there are many dining options).

We have been at Akama resort for two night in a wonderful apartment with 3 bedrooms and fully equipped kitchen. All extremely new, design furniture and super super clean. All very well organised although we arrived late in the evening when reception was closed. Top standard. Highly recommended. And in the road to Fraser Island barge harbour.

We visited for 2 nights, our first visit to Hervey Bay. The apartment was great, it had everything we needed. The rooms were all a good size.

What a great hotel. Terrific location and views of the water. Staff were friendly and the rooms! Absolutely beautiful. Only downsides were that the pool and spa were a shade cool despite saying it was heated and the carparks are a bit narrow but that is being very picky overall a great spot we wold highly recommend.
