Manly Pacific – MGallery has unveiled its brand new look and feel following an extensive two-year refurbishment to the tune of $30 million.
The transformation features a refreshed façade, 213 redesigned rooms, including The Infinity Residence and nine ocean-facing Coastal Suites, a rooftop pool and bar, a sundeck with an infrared sauna, 55 North – an eclectic new lobby bar, and a conference and events floor.
Across each of its eight floors, the hotel has undergone a major glow-up led by renowned Australian designers Coco Republic, resulting in breezy, coastal-inspired spaces filled with natural light and looking out to ocean views.
Accommodations include nine ocean-facing, two-bedroom, two-bathroom Coastal Suites with separate entertaining, living and dining areas, balconies or terraces. Guests can enjoy the customisable wellness menu including a Peloton bike and classes, a yoga mat, resistance band and yoga block, Leif skincare and LaGaia facemasks. For anyone that struggles to disconnect at night, there’s even a service to take away their phones at 8pm.
The jewel in the crown is the Infinity Residence – a 177-square-metre one-bedroom suite complete with fireplace, kitchenette, an ensuite with a black freestanding stone bathtub, and a living and dining room opening up to a 100-square-metre private terrace. Guests staying here are welcomed with a beach towel personalised with their initials, LaGaia beauty products and their very own personal Beach Butler, on call throughout their stay.
Food and beverage options include a vibrant new bar, 55 North, which offers an innovative cocktail menu and two restaurants – Japanese fusion Tokyo Joe and French coastal from the award-winning Bistro Manly by executive chef Ryan Dawson.
Health and wellness is firmly at the forefront of Manly Pacific with the concierge service or “Beach Club” available to create personalised wellness experiences and packages, from surfing lessons and kayaking to boot camps, beach yoga and massages. The adjoining Manly Beach Health Club is also available to hotel guests 24/7.
“At every touch point, we’ve considered the extra level of detail guests now expect from a great hotel experience, with a key focus on sustainability initiatives, such as smarter energy-saving room controls to electric car charging stations,” Manly Pacific general manager Dylan Cole said.
“We’ve brought a new level of sophistication to Manly without losing the quintessential way of life of the Northern Beaches, from its laid-back lifestyle and strong connection to the sea and wellbeing.”
