Opening in April 2018, the all-new Mantra at Sharks hotel will provide a unique offering to Southport and the northern Gold Coast region. Catering for a wide range of guests, the hotel will offer conference delegates, expo visitors and business executives the option of staying at the property in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

Located just 10 minutes from Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast and 45 minutes from Brisbane, the 120-room hotel will complement the existing Sharks Events Centre. A modern, multi-purpose events space, Sharks Events Centre boasts delicious and exciting menu selections, and award-winning service. Event organisers will find the flexible event spaces and adaptable rooms suitable for catering from 10 up to 1000 guests. Additionally, there are over 500 free car parks, a dedicated entrance point, and neighbouring green space – The Village Green.

The brand-new hotel creates an opportunity for multiple day conferences to be held in Sharks Events Centre while staying onsite, and offering delegates access to Southport Sharks facilities – two restaurants, six bars, a café, and fitness centre.

Sales and Events Centre Manager, Kristie Powell said the team is excited about the new facilities.
“The new Mantra at Sharks hotel is a game changer. Historically Southport Sharks has lacked genuine accommodation facilities to host multi-day conferences and events, often with delegates having to stay offsite. Now, conference and events guests can stay at the beautiful new hotel as well as experience everything Southport Sharks has to offer including fine dining, fitness classes and free entertainment every day of the week, all under the one roof,” said Ms Powell.

Conference guests will be able to sip on decadent cocktails, enjoy traditional Italian pizzas and sharing dishes at the exclusive Aviary Rooftop Bar, nestled six floors above ground – on top of the hotel. The rooftop bar is one of six bars at Southport Sharks and features sweeping skyline views of Surfers Paradise, a cinema and The Nest, a separate outdoor space available for private functions.

During breaks and relaxation periods, guests can choose from three distinct dining outlets. Frenzy’s features value lunches and a buffet dinner, seven nights a week. For guests seeking a decadent dining experience, Carmody’s is an award-winning restaurant renowned for high-quality, certified organic meats, and an extensive wine list, and The Café is the perfect meeting place for a coffee with a wide range of delicious meals and sweets.

Health conscious guests are welcome to utilise Southport Sharks Health and Fitness, one of Gold Coast’s largest health and wellbeing centres. The fitness centre features state-of-the-art equipment and over 110 group fitness classes each week, including cycle classes, as well as mediation, yoga and Pilates.

The Sharks offering is complete with live entertainment seven days a week, including tribute bands, solo artists, trivia and karaoke.

Sharks Events Centre’s friendly, talented, and dedicated team can cater for events of any size or style, customising the perfect package to suit your unique event needs. The highly professional and experienced event organisers will ensure your event is a success – simply convey your vision and they will take pride in bringing it to life.
