Airlie Beach resort gets an $8 million upgrade

An $8 million refurbishment to transform all 160 guest rooms at Airlie Beach’s Mantra Club Croc has been unveiled this week.

Owned by Well Smart Group and operated under Accor’s Mantra brand, the resort’s new interior design concept aims to showcase "seaside elegance", offering boutique-style accommodation with coastal-inspired décor.

Situated close to the beachfront and Coral Sea Marina, Mantra Club Croc is housed around a traditional Queenslander-style building, providing guests with a glimpse into the region's history.

Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer for the region Adrian Williams said: “The transformation of all 160 guest rooms, coupled with the upcoming upgrades to other areas of the resort, solidifies Mantra Club Croc as a premier holiday destination, seamlessly blending historical charm with modern coastal flair.

"It has raised the bar on hotel accommodation, and elevated the guest experience, in the holiday hotspot of Airlie Beach.

“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.”

“Our commitment to continuous improvement underscores our dedication to providing a world-class tourism offering," said Well Smart group director Jack Jia.

"The resort has been tailored to savvy leisure and business travellers who value immersive spaces, modern dining, and leading-edge design - it offers a seamless and intuitive experience, while providing access to the Whitsundays’ famed blue waters, white sands and rugged green-clad islands.”

Notable features of the room refurbishments include local photographers' artworks, pendant lighting, coastal-style wall panelling, a free-standing minibar, a robe with an open hanging rail and shelves, 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 wifi upgrade (which is provided complimentary to all guests).

The refurbishment will also extend to the resort’s reception area and poolside restaurant and bar later in the year.

Mantra is Australia’s largest hotel brand with 75 properties across the country. Accor operates two well-appointed resorts in Airlie Beach - The Sebel Whitsundays Airlie Beach and Mantra Club Croc Airlie Beach.

Mantra Club Croc room start from $175 per night, including breakfast daily and a welcome drink. To book, visit
