If you, like us, are crying out for a holiday but can’t quite find the time to plan a trip down south or up north, we’ve found the ultimate destination for the summer – and it’s just a stone’s throw away from the Perth CBD.
In answer to all of our vacation daydreams, The Marina at Mindarie have just opened Cabana Poolside Bar & BBQ for the summer season. Open every Saturday and Sunday from 11am, it’s the perfect spot to lounge poolside and sip on a cocktail or glass of local vino, complete with daybeds and a menu designed for sharing.
Plan your visit around Cocktail Hour from 12 – 1pm and 5 – 6pm every Saturday and Sunday, where you’ll be able to enjoy delicious $10 cocktails, such as their Water Melon Sugar High, a fruity blend of gin, watermelon, lime and soda – the perfect pick-me-up on a warm day.
On Sundays from 4 – 6pm, the Cabana Poolside Bar will be hosting their Sunday SIP Club, a weekly Sunday session where you can sip your way through two rotating cocktails and enjoy a Chef’s selection of canapes as Kaviar DJs keep you entertained.
For that added bit of luxury, there are four poolside daybeds you can book from 11am – 6.30pm throughout the weekend. Each reservation is for a 2 hour period, and the daybeds fit four people. If you have a larger group, you can book out your very own Cabana on the pool deck and sit back beneath the shade of your own private oasis. They have three Cabanas available, which are well-suited for groups of between 15 to 80 people.
You can also reserve a table for lunch for up to 10 people and enjoy a laid-back meal on the deck. The Cabana’s new menu offers something for everyone, whether you’re after something tasty from the grill (seed-crusted tuna steak anyone?), a classic cub sandwich or share plates to keep the crew happy.
If you want to make a weekend of it, you’ll be pleased to know that The Marina Hotel offers a range of accommodation packages, so you can enjoy a leisurely walk back to your comfortable hotel room after you’re done relaxing by the pool. Their Girl’s Getaway package, for instance, offers one nights accommodation in either their 2-bedroom suite or 3-bedroom villa with a bottle of sparkling on arrival and a manicure or pedicure included.
Or, if you’re heading down for Sunday SIP Club, their Sunday Stay & Breakfast offers a relaxing Sunday overnight stay with a delicious breakfast at The Boat to refuel the next morning. Find out more about their staycation options here.
