Accor increases its footprint in regional Queensland with Mantra Mackay

Accor has further increased its footprint in the central Queensland market having acquired a franchise agreement with Mandala Asset Solutions for their recently purchased Mackay Marina Hotel.

The eight-storey, 79-room hotel has rebranded as Mantra Mackay as of 15 December 2019, 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 a prime waterfront site offering views over the Coral Sea, also features a restaurant and bar, fitness centre, swimming pool, four conference and meetings rooms and a business centre.

Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath, said the acquisition of Mantra Mackay allowed the Group to increase its offering in one of Queensland’s fastest growing coastal cities and complement its existing network.

“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,” said Mr McGrath.

"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.

Mandala Asset Solutions Principal John Zeckendorf said he sees a big upside for hospitality in Mackay.

“We are confident this well-appointed property will operate with great success under Accor and provide travellers with a quality accommodation and conferencing option in Mackay,” said Mr Zeckendorf.

Mantra Mackay is the city’s only hotel with marina views. It is also only a short drive from Mackay’s city centre and 20 minutes from Mackay Airport.
