Great apartment

Posted 15-Jan-2017
Very quiet location away from beach and shops restaurants. Excellent apartment , ocean view on level 4 ok but mostly of harbour . Not that exciting . Pool and spa very nice as was garden and bar b q facilities. Robyn very helpful and took time to explain Fraser Island tour which was well worth the time to go and see.

Washing machine and dryer and undercover lock up garage. Walk to the Mariner where you can go whale watching and cruises . Excellent air conditioning that actual kept us cool and worked!!!

Nice hotel for whale watching visit

Posted 11-Sep-2016 on Wotif
Akama is ideally located for the whale watching experience. It is just a short walk down the road to the boat harbour and boat club. Neat and tidy with nice staff.

Unforgettable Harvey Bay Visit

Posted 15-Aug-2016 on Hotels
For our normal travelling, we have very limited interaction with the hotel staff, mainly just check in and check out. However, I have to say thank to the Akama Resort staff ( sorry I didn't get the name ), I think our visit to Harvey bay will be ruined if it weren't for these great help. We were so busy that we couldn't pre book our activities ( Whale watching and Lady Elliot Island ), I couldn't believe when the hotel staff help me book both the minute we arrived the hotel ( whale watching may be easy but Lady Elliot island booking less than 1 day in advance..), staff even help check the wind condition and advice us to go whale watching in the morning because they worry the wind may pick up in the afternoon ( we have small children), now that is service. Needless to say, Lady Elliot island's visit is wonderful and a memory of lifetime, and it's a " Whale soup " ( learn from the local ) out on our whale watching tour. We are definitely coming back to this place.
