Enjoy easy access to an abundance of eateries at Surfer’s or via light rail access to Broadbeach, or cosy up after a busy day with meal prep using the fully equipped kitchen.        


Family perks: The kids will love the lagoon pool, sandy beach and water slide at Mantra Crown Towers. Plus, the kids will have hours of fun searching for buried treasure aboard a pirate ship! With the kids distracted, parents can while away the hours in a shady spot, poolside.
