Mantra Towers of Chevron is a Gold Coast icon with fame equating to that of meter maids, Australia’s tallest building - Q1, and Cavil Mall. There is even a rumour the building was birthed alongside the trademark golden sand beaches.
Standing tall in the heart of Surfers Paradise the structure is best recognised by its three majestic towers reaching for the heavens.
It is not just old-fashioned fame that gives Mantra Towers of Chevron its popularity, proximity to everything Surfers Paradise including brilliant shopping, world class beaches, and all the attractions that come with the Gold Coast, at your doorstep make it a hit among locals and visitors alike.
There are a plethora of activities and attractions within walking distance or a short drive from the resort – have a terrifyingly good time at Dracula’s Haunted House, test your skills at Tenpin Bowling (complete with bar), go on an excursion through land and sea on an aqua duck adventure or enjoy a traditional cruise, adventure through the kaleidoscopic Infinity, let the Wax Museum test your vision, figure out if you believe it or not at Ripley’s Museum, admire the world* from Sky Point Observation Deck (*potentially hyperbole for Gold Coast coastline), or roam the beachfront markets on the incredibly attractive Surfers Paradise foreshore.
There is a never-ending list of ways to amuse and enjoy one’s self staying at Mantra Towers of Chevron, in addition to the impressive array of attractions there also a myriad of shopping options, some of which are literally attached to the building. From haute couture stores to hipster alcoves, to bargain boutiques there is a style for everyone so you can browse through the latest fashion, find a cute bag to go with your outfit for dinner, or get a make-over from top to toe.
Once you’ve had your fill of retail therapy, you can soak up some sunshine on the picturesque beaches that boast 300 days a year of sunshine, warmth, and pure happiness which are a mere 400 metres away.
If your idea of a magical water experience is less pounding surf and more calm water, fewer people, and an abundance of lounge chairs then don’t bother leaving Chevron.
As the elevators to the fifth level open an expansive 1.25 acres of luscious greenery and beautiful azure blue waters will appear before you. You have reached the oasis that is “Beaches in the Sky”. The well-manicured gardens fringe a large recreational area complete with barbeque facilities, picnic areas, and the crème de la crème of Surfers Paradise pools – the lagoon. This behemoth body of water is well-known as one of the best on the Gold Coast (let’s face it 1.25 acres in the centre of Surfers Paradise is already impressive!) as the blue waters gently lap the sandy lagoon entrance it is almost as if they are beckoning you forwards.
Our Hightide hot tip is to make sure you spend at least one afternoon at Beaches in the Sky after popping downstairs for BBQ supplies so you can throw a snag or shrimp on the barbie, while you enjoy a nice wine on a lounge chair, and the kids play in the lagoon. After all who doesn’t want their Sunday barbeque with a slide of tropical lagoon bliss?
For a child-free pool experience, head over to the second outdoor pool, it is less-frequented by the mini-me’s giving it a relaxing atmosphere.
As well as tropical bliss, level five is also home to a 25 metre heated indoor pool, lady and gentlemen’s saunas, and an indoor spa for the rainy or cooler months because Chevron know relaxation is important year-round. For the fitness fanatics who’s regimens are part of a holiday, rest assured there is a fully equipped gym for all your lifting, sweating, and running needs open between 6am and 10pm.
There is even a convenient vending machine by the entrance to the health club offering guests everything from swimming nappies and sunscreen to healthy snacks and Powerade.
