Soul Surfers

Mantra Group has been appointed managers for the apartment letting at Soul Surfers Paradise.

Formerly a Sea Temple resort with Mirvac and then Accor, Mantra Group will manage the property as Soul Surfers Paradise to “capitalise on the market presence the Soul name enjoys”, according to the company.

Mantra CEO Bob East said the change in management will take place in early November and the company was looking forward to taking Soul Surfers Paradise to an “even greater level of distinction”.

“Soul Surfers Paradise is a very exciting addition to our network,” he said.

“The property is already recognised as an outstanding development and our vision is for Soul to be considered one of the most iconic and successful integrated beachside properties in Australia.”

Soul is a 77 level tower located on the corner of Cavill Ave and The Esplanade, Surfers Paradise. Developed by Juniper, the development, including the apartment letting business, was placed into receivership in October 2012.

Receiver and Manager Michael Fung of PwC said the management appointment of Mantra Group is a “strategic step in the ongoing evolution of the Soul development”.

“Mantra Group is recognised as having extensive experience in managing strata titled properties,” he said. “It has successfully operated beachside locations throughout Australia.

“We are confident that Mantra Group will maximise returns to owners while delivering the five-star experience that Soul has to offer.

“The Soul development is already recognised as a unique and prestigious five-star property Australia-wide and internationally.

“By operating the apartment letting business as Soul Surfers Paradise, Mantra Group can utilise its expertise to capitalise on Soul’s current profile in the market,” he said.

All two and three bedroom apartments at Soul Surfers Paradise enjoy unobstructed ocean views and feature spacious floor plans.

Soul’s two-hatted restaurant, Seaduction, has its own wine-tasting room and private dining room and bar, while the retail precinct offers onsite shopping and dining.

For business and entertaining, Soul incorporates well-appointed conference and meeting rooms to host special events of all kinds, including weddings and other celebrations.

At the resort, there’s also multiple pool areas surrounded by sun lounges and day beds; spa, sauna and steam rooms; an oasis of tropical gardens and water features; a gymnasium, plus outdoor exercise and recreation facilities.
