Leading accommodation provider Mantra Group has expanded its presence in New Zealand with the launch of a luxury apartment complex in the adventure capital of Queenstown.
Officially opening on February 1, 2010, Mantra Marina Resort marks the first foray into New Zealand for the group's premier Mantra brand.
It joins Mantra Group's other New Zealand properties Peppers Beacon, BreakFree The Point, BreakFree the Waterfront, Highview, Peppers Clearwater Resort and Peppers Bluewater Resort on the South Island plus the North Island's Peppers on the Point and Peppers Martinborough to cover the full spectrum of holiday experiences for couples, families and corporate guests.
Mantra Group CEO Bob East said he was delighted to be launching the Mantra brand in New Zealand with such a high calibre property.
"The acquisition of this modern and superbly appointed property is the ideal springboard into New Zealand for Mantra Hotels, Resorts & Apartments,'' he said.
Mr East said that he was looking forward to expanding the highly successful Mantra brand throughout New Zealand. Mantra Resorts is currently Australia's fastest growing hotel brand.
"Just one year old and situated on the waters edge of Lake Wakitipu, Mantra Marina Resort perfectly embodies the ideals of Mantra - one of the most popular hotel brands in Australia, known for its superior accommodation in major corporate and leisure destinations,'' he said.
Located on Frankton Road, just four minutes drive from Queenstown central and the airport, Mantra Marina Resort comprises 52 keys made of hotel rooms plus one, two and three bedroom apartments.
Featuring the breathtaking Remarkables mountain range as a backdrop and boasting immediate lake frontage, Mantra Marina Resort offers spacious and private light-filled apartments with king beds, luxurious soft furnishings, quality linen and personal amenities.
Golfing, boating, wineries, walking trails, winter skiing and a host of adventure sports are within easy reach of the property.
