The Novotel Twin Waters Resort , a 4.5 star resort has announced their latest enhancement, the transformation of Lily’s on the Lagoon which can now divide into two separate venues which allows for simultaneous use for events, conferences and private dinners whilst offering stunning 180 degree over-water views.
The Resort is nestled between the Sunshine Coast’s Maroochy River and Pacific Ocean amongst 24 hectares of natural bushland and offers award-winning standards for both business and leisure.
Set at the edge of the resort’s central lagoon Lily’s offers a unique sense of arrival and an idyllic setting with wrap-around timber decks and an impressive timber cathedral ceiling.
When not being utilised for events, Lily’s on the Lagoon is renowned for its special wine dinners hosted by well respected winemakers from both Australia and overseas and as the resorts signature restaurant serving an a la carte style menu. It’s a multi-purpose venue with a sophisticated ambience.
The resort is home to seven purpose built conference rooms and unique outdoor event spaces, including lagoon beaches, gardens and bush clearings where the Novotel conference team are able to help create an unforgettable themed event.
Options include being shipwrecked on the beach, going bush for an African Safari or dining under an open air Big Top complete with roving entertainment, live bands and fireworks around a circus arena.
A Circus themed event made easy with the Resort’s onsite circus school.
Ideal for residential conferences, the 361 room resort offers three styles of accommodation options which range from a Resort room, King or Lagoon suite.
Conference guests and their families have use of resort facilities including the catamarans and kayaks on the resort’s lagoon which also features a huge water trampoline. Other facilities include a swimming pool and spa, three restaurants, a bar and over 40 free kids’ activities including beach volleyball, kids’ bicycles and cricket sets.
Circus Espace, the only circus school on the Sunshine Coast where you can learn to tumble and trapeze, golf at the 18-hole Twin Waters championship course and treatments at the Lagoon Day Spa are also available as paid activities.
Cirque Espace is also an excellent activity for groups with a taste for adventure, where the opportunity to bond comes 20 metres in the air on a flying trapeze.
In addition there are partner programs such as Australia’s first two-wheel All Terrain Segway Xperience. Run by the resort’s corporate and group Xperience team, this program takes groups on Segway tours through eucalyptus bushland, past manicured gardens and along lagoon pathways and beaches.
A African or Survivor themed event workes perfectly in the bush setting.
Conference groups can also switch to survivor mode with Xperience’s Aircraft Challenge. This pulls the team together with a simulated air-crash survival scenario with a real 22m Caribou aircraft for added realism. Teams perform activities including assisting injured team members, navigation challenges and real-life survivor challenges such as archery and fire-starting to determine who would be most likely to survive.
Novotel understands that imagination and inventiveness is the key to uniting delegates and is constantly creating new challenges to ensure that conference groups leave the resort as strong and unified teams.
The convenience of a professional on-site conference team, onsite AV specialists and proximity to Brisbane domestic and International Airport – one hour by road, 5 minutes from the Sunshine Coast Airport and complimentary on-site car parking make it hard to go past this popular Queensland venue if you’re looking to hold a memorable event.
