We chose the Penthouse at Akama Resort for our family get-together because it provided three full size bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with full size fridge and a large family room. The veranda overlooking the water was a bonus. We had six adults plus a 14 month old baby and the spacious apartment was fantastic. The space it provided meant...

Akama is an amazing set of apartments. Our three bedroom unit was immaculately clean, modern and comfortable. There was everything there from the tv to the coffee plunger.

Hi David H Thankyou David for your kind review on our amazing apartments. It was a pleasure to welcome your lovely family to Akama. Yes, you are right – the sub-tropical climate does mean we have some early sunrises – the block out blinds do help, however an early start to the day is usually inevitable. I’m glad you enjoyed...
