Attendees will get a taste of the superyacht lifestyle at the 2024 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) with the launch of the Lagoon Beach Club VIP Experience.

“We’re incredibly excited to launch our revamped VIP and corporate hospitality offering at this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from May 23 to 26,” said Johan Hasser, General Manager of Mulpha Events. “Located in the grounds of InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, the all-new  Lagoon Beach Club is a brand-new elevated precinct offering a luxury beach club vibe overlooking the resort’s lagoon pool and award-winning marina.”

Mr Hasser said this multi-zone space will offer guests elevated experiences, from all-day five-star dining to pop-up bars, tasting experiences and live entertainment.

“It will be the ideal place to entertain clients or enjoy a great day out with friends,” he said.

Demand for the luxury experience, which includes all areas access to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, is expected to be high, with showgoers always eager to experience a taste of the superyacht lifestyle.

Matt Rippin, General Manager of InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, said Lagoon Beach Club VIP Experience guests are in for a real treat this year with a bespoke five-star grazing menu, a raft of beverage partners, and live entertainment all set amongst the grounds of the Resort’s newest precinct.

“We are proud to once again be the Hospitality Partner of the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show,” Mr Rippin said. “It is a pleasure to display our culinary expertise and continue to elevate our premium food and beverage offering, whilst showcasing the Resort’s all-new Lagoon Beach Club,” Mr Rippin said.

VIP guests will be treated to some of the finest drinks and tasting experiences from beverage partners. Enjoy a glass of Mumm Marlborough sparkling or a splash from the Hunter Valley region’s Bimbadgen, and for guests who enjoy an easy-drinking beer, they can escape to the Italian coast with the new Peroni Nastro Azzurro Stile Capri at the Lagoon Beach Club Bar.

If cocktails take your fancy, Manly Spirits will be shaking up cocktails all-day at their signature pop-up bar, with special tasting experiences planned throughout the day.

Tickets for the Lagoon Beach Club VIP Experience are restricted to guests over 18 with corporate packages also available.
