It was our first trip to Hervey Bay, after much research on hotels we chose the Akama. I am glad to say we made the right choice, the rooms are massive and plenty of room for entertaining, the large balconies were great. Location is good, a short drive to the esplanade and a even shorter walk to the boat club....

Hello DJR01 We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review. The Penthouses are ideal for a family stay and the balcony is a great spot to sit back and take in the beautiful views over the Great Sandy Straits. You were such a lovely family and the children seemed to be having a great time. It will...

Hello FelicityW You were both such lovely people and you were so eager to see what Hervey Bay had to offer. It is always encouraging to see people taking advantage of the beautiful esplanade walking and cycle track. We will make sure apartment 3 is ready for you when you return. Kind regards, Matt & Pia

Besides the great location, modern, comfortable and clean apartment, the service provided my Managers go beyond normal expectations. Thank you very much Matt and Pia for everything you did for us the weekend of 18-21 April, - after the little matter of hubby locking his motor bike keys in the bike's hatch. You help was invaluable !!

Really beautiful apartment with fab views and loads of space, definitely feel that wifi should be free, a real let down in a 5 star apartment especially when the weather was bad. I need access for work and really don't want to have to pay an extra $32 per day !

I recently stayed here for three nights with a friend; we paid a little extra to get a water glimpse from the 4th floor and were glad we did.

Hi Stahle1972 Thanks for the review. It was a shame that you couldn’t have stayed a little longer. It was good to hear that you had such a good time on Fraser Island – now, next time you visit you’ll have to spend some time exploring Hervey Bay. We would love to welcome you back to Akama in the future....
