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.

We had a lovely three night stay in a ground floor three bedroom apartment. The apartment was huge, with spacious bedrooms and living areas. The kitchen was the highlight with a very modern look and gorgeous stone bench tops. No expense was spared. The reception staff was lovely on check-in / check-out, they accommodated my requests without a problem and... More

Absolutely stunning apartment. The living area is exceptionally large, so if with a family, there is space to move and not feel trapped. Close to the marina and a couple of places to eat. 20 minute walk to the nearest town, Urangan, where there is a choice of restaurants. If you want more choice, you will need to drive to... More

Absolutely stunning accommodation. Modern, clean, smart & spacious. Not right on the main beach strip, but quieter for that, and close to Marina. Absolutely charming staff, couldn't be more helpful. Perfect spot for our 5 night stay in the sunshine with little ones.....

My partner and I stopped at Akama for two nights heading south from Cairns on a road trip. The hotel is just as reviewed. Our unit was spacious and clean. Just a short walk down to the marina. My only point would be it is a bit removed from the shops but this was perfect for us, we will be... More

These are great spacious apartments located in a quiet area within easy walking distance to the boat harbour area and for walking along the sea front. The only drawback is you need a car to get to supermarkets and to a greater selection of restaurants. There may be a bus but as we had a car we didnt investigate the... More
