Looking forward to the new beach-feel Lobby are Mantra receptionists Giselli Benatti and Natasha Grech.

Stage 1 of refurbishments at Mantra Twin Towns will commence in February with a complete remodelling and brand-new interior design throughout the Lobby level.

Interior designer Sue Jago from Split Watermelon Design, who has worked on many projects at Twin Towns including 1st on Wharf, Harbour Lounge and the Harbour Terrace balcony, said the new look would introduce “a real coastal vibe” to the Mantra Lobby.

“The design will bring a refreshing, bright and breezy coastal colour palette, with lots of whites, complemented by natural

timbers and textures.

“There will be no doubt guests are stepping into a beachside resort when they walk through the doors of the Hotel,” Sue said.

An air lock will be created at the front door of the resort to protect the Lobby from wind and weather and optimise comfort for guests.

On Tuesday 29 January, the Mantra reception counter and lobby furniture will move to Terraces, directly opposite the current reception desk.

From Monday 4 February, Signatures buffet breakfast will move to Visions.

Signatures dinner bookings will also cease from this date.

Major works, including the installation of a new reception counter and revamp of Signatures Cocktail Bar, will commence

on Monday 4 February and are expected to take approximately 10 weeks.

It is anticipated the Lobby will be completed and breakfast will return to Signatures by Easter 2019.

Refurbishment of Mantra Twin Towns hotel rooms will commence later this year.
