We booked for two nights over the Australia Day long weekend. Needless to say we got stuck in Hervey Bay as all roads south were cut off. The service we got from Matt and Pia was first class. Early on Sunday when it became obvious that we could not get back home to Brisbane and we were due to check...

We were absolutely thrilled with our stay at Akama Resort. We rented a 3 bed apartment with wonderful views over the Great Sandy Straits and Frazer Island for 2 weeks. Due to the cyclone we stayed 3 weeks - we loved every day of it. The apartment was first class: spacious, well equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Matt, Pia...

Dear Notice255068 UnAustralian, uncompassionate, rude - we find these comments to be incredibly offensive and unjustified. You rang to cancel on the Thursday morning because it was raining. We had no indication (from Bureau of Meteorology) at that time that we were in for the type of severe conditions that we eventually encountered on the Saturday night. Let us make...

Impressed from the very start. Akama is beautiful from the outside and in. We were greeted very warmly by ? Pia, who gave us a great run down on the facilities and the surrounding area. We were then introduced to Matt, who also made us felt welcome and who gave us advice on restraunts and things to see and do....

We had a great family holiday in the top floor apartment at Akama. The room was beautifully clean and open, with all the kitchen gadgets you could want.
