Prize winner enjoys her stay

Gwenda Finch from Ormiston in Queensland, Australia recently won 2 nights at the Mantra Legends Hotel and Spa on the Gold Coast, in Cheap2Travel’s  Gold Coast Getaway Contest.

Having recently dealt with the tragic death of her husband, Gwenda was in need of a break more than most.

“My husband was killed in a accident at his business  5 days before x mas 2016.  He was crushed by slabs of granite.

My grandson,  my  son and I watched as they tried to save  him. He left me with nothing as I am only on a Disability  Pension.  I would  never be able to get away for a holiday.”

Although the prize was for a twin room at the Mantra Legends, Gwenda wanted to take both her son and grandson. With the help of the Mantra Legends, we were able to upgrade her room to a Spa Suite so they could all be comfortably accommodated.

In September, the three of them checked in and spent the best part of three wonderful days in Surfers Paradise. Gwenda loved the spa in the room, and the great location. You can see Gwenda’s review of her stay here.

We’re delighted that they enjoyed themselves and hope that in some small way, we could help the healing process.

I would like to thank  for this opportunity”  Gwenda told us.
