Accor has unveiled an $8 million refurbishment for the Mantra Club Croc at Airlie Beach.

The 160-guestroom property is owned by Well Smart Group, an Accor partner.

Adrian Williams is Accor Pacific chief operating officer PME. He said “Accor and Well Smart Group have a long and successful relationship, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to partner with them again on this landmark refurbishment. Their incredible vision is evident in every detail of this project.”

Well Smart Group director, Jack Jia, said “Our commitment to continuous improvement underscores our dedication to providing a world-class tourism offering. The resort has been tailored to savvy leisure and business travellers who value immersive spaces, modern dining, and leading-edge design.”

Mantra Club Croc is housed in a traditional Queenslander-style building. Notable features of the guestroom refurbishment include local photographers’ artworks, pendant lighting, and coastal-style wall panelling. Rooms feature a freestanding minibar, an open wardrobe space, custom bedheads, and a storage banquette with an upholstered seat-pad.

In addition to the room upgrades, Mantra Club Croc now offers a reimagined room service offering, a new poolside cocktail service, and has received a full resort high speed Wi-Fi upgrade (which is provided complimentary to all guests). The resort refurbishment will also extend to the resort’s reception area and poolside restaurant and bar later in the year.

The Mantra is Australia’s largest hotel brand with 75 properties across the country.
