One of Darwin’s most desirable waterfront properties, Mantra on the Esplanade, was awarded the highest honours in the tourism industry over the weekend, winning the ‘Deluxe Accommodation’ category at the 2012 Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Awards.

Awarded for its newly refurbished accommodation and facilities and quality services, the hotel trumped the award category’s fierce competition with Medina Grand Waterfront Darwin, Lasseters Hotel Casino, Alice Springs, Quest Parap and Palmerston and Best Western Darwin Airport Gateway Hotel among the finalists.

The awards were held on Saturday evening at the Darwin Convention Centre and are recognised as the industry's most prestigious awards program.

Mantra Group Chief Executive Officer Bob East said it is a great honour for Mantra on the Esplanade to win the deluxe accommodation award, which recognises excellence in accommodation providers in the 4 to 4.5 star range.

“Tourism awards salute the industry’s leading operators, businesses and individuals and reinforce the enormous value of tourism to the community and we are thrilled that Mantra on the Esplanade has been recognised as among the Northern Territory’s best,” Mr East said.

“This award win is possible because Mantra on the Esplanade has a team of dedicated and experienced staff who are highly committed to excellence in customer service.”

“We’re also delighted that the hotel’s major $3 million refurbishment has made such an impression so soon after its completion.”
Success at state level gives Mantra on the Esplanade the opportunity to win nationally at the Australian Tourism Awards, which will be held in Hobart in February 2013.

Mantra on the Esplanade provides guests with accommodation in Darwin and offers an unrivalled location near Darwin Harbour and Darwin’s CBD and boasts a range of accommodation options including hotel rooms and one, two and three bedroom apartments. The property also offers 24 hour reception, 24 hour room service, outdoor pool and spa, beauty salon, business centre, onsite tour shop and car parking.  

The hotel has long been a popular choice for visiting dignitaries such as Prime Minister Julia Gillard, former PM John Howard and Governor General Quentin, establishing it as one of the finest accommodation choices in the Top End.

Business and leisure travellers can experience Mantra on the Esplanade’s award-winning facilities and service with the hotel’s ‘Two Night Escape’ package from $129* per night in a Hotel Room with city views. Call 13 15 17 or visit www.mantra.com.au.
