Mantra on Russell is a luxury 4 star hotel and one of the busiest Mantra locations in the network located in the busiest area in the city, adjacent to all the restaurants of China Town, Little Bourke Street and surrounding blue chip and theatre precincts along with substantial corporate contracts, the Mantra is always in constant demand no matter what time of year it is with all of Melbourne’s never ending entertainment and sporting events – Christmas is the busiest with the AFL Grand Final in September, Australian Open in January and Australian Grand Prix in March all competing for second place! That’s on top of everything else that the Mantra on Russell accommodates throughout the year!

Mantra on Russell also offers its guests exceptional facilities which is one of its main attractions such as a large indoor heated swimming pool complete with spa bath, a very well equipped gymnasium, a brand new sauna fit out all surrounded with a giant sun deck up on level 6.

Level 1 includes substantial conference rooms, home kitchen restaurant with a delicate menu providing fine dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Importantly, investors should certainly take note that this a long term lease with approximately 20 years remaining and offers both short AND long term benefits and with the current Melbourne CBD rental demand more than likely set to increase over the next twelve to eighteen months and quite significantly over the next three to five years given the population and visitation growth which increases demand for apartments in the CBD and this is based upon current demand, past trends and will certainly influence future rental demand, demographic and financial figures as well as been indicative of actual incomes for investors.

Melbourne not only boasts the much envied accolade of “The World’s Most Livable City” seven years in a row but the continuation of what is now by far the highest population growth rate in Australia – some 160,000 people last financial year all wanted to move here!

Victoria’s spectacular economy is the strongest in the country and booming even further still, particularly with the construction industry and this is certainly a secure indication of the direction of the future market from both a capital appreciative and rental perspective that puts Melbourne at the forefront of investment opportunities in Australia.

The ABS have also forecast that Melbourne’s exploding population will continue to expand to well in excess of five million people by June 2020 further reinforcing Australia’s strongest economy and market stability based upon the phenomenal population growth and spectacular economic success experienced to date.

One of the many significant advantages of a serviced apartment with the Mantra is that you never have to worry about problem tenants, damage to the apartment, rental arrears/ income not been paid consistently and on time and the hassle of body corporate fees because all this is fully catered for you by the Mantra Group.

For peace of mind, all furniture replacement/upgrades are the sole responsibility of the Mantra so you won’t be hit with any surprise invoices for furniture or maintenance related issues (unlike some other serviced apartment operations which investors should be aware of) and with all things considered, right across the board, this apartment and the manner in which it is operated and managed is a great deal and one that will stay in place, work for you as a significant earner with low maintenance and certainly worthy of short listing in your search for an ideal investment property.
