Just a short stroll to the beach

Mantra Erskine Beach Resort Lorne

Mantra Erskine Beach Resort Lorne

Mantra Erskine Beach Resort and Spa is the most luxurious beachside accommodation on the Great Ocean Road. Set on 12 acres of lush landscaped heritage listed gardens, the resort has direct beachside access through the tree-lined pathways. The gardens really make this resort spectacular adding a large number of leisure facilities including even a croquet pitch. Along with 4 tennis courts, 18 hole putting green, gymnasium and indoor spa and pool. But if outdoor activities aren’t your thing then you can relax by the open fireplace in the ‘144 degree Brassiere and Bar’. The Bar opens up to an outside deck where you can have a drink or two and this is where buffet breakfast is served each morning. And I mean buffet, you can choose from cereals, toast, croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, bacon, sausages and pancakes to kick start your day. The quest rooms are top quality and range from resort rooms to two bedroom apartments, not that you will need to spend much time in them. The resort also has its own day spa where you can relax and enjoy a massage or facial. Or so could do a spot of shopping at the many boutiques along the Lorne shopping strip. Between the shops there are many fantastic little cafes and a great pub at the top of the hill which overlooks the ocean to stop for a bite to eat.  My top choice for dining would be the Greek restaurant directly opposite Mantra resort which serves some of the best seafood in Lorne. I wasn’t the only one who thought so, you definitely have to make a booking or you will most likely get turned away the restaurant gets that busy. My time in Lorne was spent mostly eating and relaxing but it was definately in style at Mantra Erskine Beach Resort and Spa.
