Akama Resort Location

Akama Resort is perhaps one of the more unique lodging options in Hervey Bay due to its location. It is perfectly aligned so that guests have a front-row seat view of Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Straits.

This prime location is not only stunning in its beauty but makes this resort the hub for visiting Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island.


The idyllic views from Akama Resort are reason enough to stay, however, there are plenty of amenities and roomy, chic apartments. Another reason this is a favoured resort location is due to its wedding services.

Because of the incredible views, Akama takes pride in their wedding suite giving brides and grooms the day of their dreams!

This suite is lovely with large mirrors, ample lighting, a spa bath, and a spacious balcony. Weddings make for the best wedding photos for the whole wedding party!

While weddings and the wedding suite make for a grand adventure, the Akama Resort is a beaut in other ways as well. With tropical gardens enclosing the property, guests really get an exclusive vibe from the location.

Sure, most resorts feature tropical gardens, however, the garden here simply adds to the overall beauty that is brought from the oceanfront views as well.

  • Undercover parking
  • King-sized bed options
  • Self-contained apartment settings

These are the most attractive features of the resort. They provide secure settings, comfort, and ease of access for guests!


A resort or hotel’s rating gives helpful insight into whether or not someone wants to choose to stay somewhere. Most commonly, an overall rating is provided for every resort or hotel that ranks their ability to provide guests with quality amenities that make them feel indulgent.

The higher the star rating, the better feeling those amenities will be. When it comes to Akama Resort Hervey Bay, their star rating is considered to be a 5-star hotel.

This is the highest rank a hotel can receive. This resort proudly earned that rating due to its stunning views of Fraser Island and even the Marina where marine vehicles depart for whale watching.

It also earned that rating because of its dedication to special wedding events and the overall atmosphere!

Another factor to consider with the rating of a hotel is its guest ratings. These ratings should be taken with common sense in mind to judge them fairly.

Google users have reviewed the Akama Resort an impressive 4.4 stars out of 5 out of 109 reviews! The most popular comments include great service from staff members and cleanliness.
