|Lincoln Downs Resort is a boutique, lakeside property in the town of Batemans Bay, NSW. Secluded and with a luxury feel, the property attracts tourism, transit and corporate guests.
Batemans Bay is known as “Canberra’s beach” being the closest to the city. Only 3.5 hours south of Sydney and located on a beautiful river and beach, Batemans Bay has been a consistent performer over many years. The development of the Prince’s Highway has made travel times far quicker for Sydneysiders and with further improvements already underway, it is expected that this town will continue to grow and perform well.
Lincoln Downs is a recently renovated property that includes quality finishes and a rare resort feeling. With a private lake, quiet location and being one of the best properties in town, it is proving popular with regular travellers.
Mandala identified that improvements were required in the functions and weddings offerings and completed the installation of a Gazebo in the lake for this purpose. We also converted the uneconomic day spa into a stunning Honeymoon Suite and recruited a dedicated functions manager. After twelve months the functions business has grown substantially from a standing start.
Mandala have also upgraded the restaurant to better fit the property and clientele. Lincoln Downs is expected to provide solid returns for investors with additional upside available through the growth of the functions business and possible branding.
