Accor grows Queensland presence with Mantra Mackay

Following a franchise agreement with Mandala Asset Solutions for its recently purchased Mackay Marina Hotel, Accor has expended its range of properties across Queensland.

The eight-storey, 79-room hotel has rebranded as Mantra Mackay, becoming Accor’s second property in the central Queensland hub of Mackay, joining the group’s 152-room Ibis Mackay hotel.

Mantra Mackay, which was constructed in 2005 and stands on the Mackay waterfront, offers views over the Coral Sea.

The property features a restaurant and bar, fitness centre, swimming pool, four conference and meetings rooms, as well as a business centre.

Accor’s chief operating officer for the Pacific, Simon McGrath, said the acquisition of Mantra Mackay has allowed the group to increase its offering in one of Queensland’s fastest-growing coastal cities.

“Mantra Mackay is one of the best properties in Mackay, and this acquisition speaks to our confidence in the city’s future and the importance of securing well-positioned product in market,” he said.

“We are excited to again partner with Mandala Asset Solutions on this property and believe it has great potential to service a number of markets.”

Mantra Mackay is the second franchise agreement signed between Accor and Mandala Asset Solutions, joining Mercure Albury on the Victorian border.
