Grand Mercure Casuarina Beach

 The 55-room Santai hotel in Casuarina on the New South Wales Tweed Coast has joined Accor’s upscale Grand Mercure Apartments brand.

“We are very excited to become part of the Grand Mercure brand before the peak holiday season,” said Grand Mercure Casuarina Beach General Manager, Correen Hurley.

“This global branding will help to attract international and interstate visitors to what we believe is one of the most wonderful holiday destinations in the world,” Hurley said.

With an extensive lagoon-shaped pool and lush Balinese-inspired landscaping, the hotel features a range of stylish one- and two-bedroom apartments and its own Asian-inspired restaurant Bamboo.

It boasts the Santai Massage and Beauty day spa and conference facilities for up to 15, and is just a short walk to glorious beaches.
