Resting on the north side of the beautiful Hastings River and surrounded by natural reserve and untamed beaches, Akuna Luxury Waterfront Retreat is the only accommodation that commands spectacular views of the distant city lights, Hastings River, Pelican island and the majestic mountains rising behind Port Macquarie. Only a short walk through bush reserve welcomes the soothing sound of the waves from North Shore Beach.
An intimate two guest room retreat, Akuna provides a luxurious, serene refuge. Spacious, light filled interiors feature ceiling to floor louver windows, stone travertine floors, sheoak and camphor laurel joinery with grass cloth wall papers. The north facing bushland balcony welcomes an alternative relaxing haven. Filtered with sun, a stream of local birds visit constantly during the day. Open fires throughout and a surround music system create a sophisticated river house ambience.
Decorated with a warm natural palette, the suites feature king and queen beds with superior linens, smart TVs, desk and wireless internet. Ensuite bathrooms feature modern black oversized rain showerheads and heated towel rails. Split stone-faced travertine feature walls are softly lit by recessed ceiling lighting.
The in-suite bars and house bars offer locally-sourced epicurean treats. Botanic artwork adorn the walls. Tribal rug collections bring a feel of softness and luxury to the mod mid-century design.
Organic-inspired toiletries and exclusive Akuna scented candles invite guests to relax and revitalise. Beach towels, bathrobes and slippers are provided along with daily housekeeping and sensory evening turndown service.
For the adventurous kayaks, canoes, SUP and fishing equipment are provided. Upon request gourmet BBQ lunch and dinners can be prepared.
Akuna has all the hallmarks of luxurious riverside living, ensuring guests have the treasured opportunity to relax and experience the best of what Port Macquarie and the Hastings River have to offer. Disability access and functionality will be completed early 2018.
