A recent international food festival and open day was Palm Lake Resort Truganina’s way of inviting the community to explore the popular lifestyle village and have a bit of fun at the same time.

More than 200 guests attended the event to try out the cuisine of Palm Lake Resort’s in-house chef and tour the facilities of what is one of the more popular 50-plus lifestyle villages in the west.

Palm Lake Resort spokesperson Zoe Ilich-Paul says such events are held regularly.

“We love hosting events with our residents,” she says. “It’s great for community atmosphere and, at the end of the day, it is great fun.”

On the day of the food festival, Combo La Revelacion, a well-known Latin-American band based in Melbourne, played South American music that had everyone dancing.

“Our chef did an amazing job of preparing all of the great international meals that were enjoyed by all on the day,” Zoe says.

Four display homes were open for viewing and showcased the best that Palm Lake Resort at Truganina has to offer.

“We’re really excited as we only have five villas left,” Zoe says. “The community we have built with the active help and participation of our residents is brilliant.”

Palm Lake Resort staff and management understand the importance of providing a quality and style of living that is truly top shelf.

Palm Lake Resort villas offer two bedroom plus study homes, with a choice of garage sizes as well as an impressive range of inclusions and extras such as extra living spaces and high-end finishings.

“The villas are energy efficient, constructed of Hebel, well known for its insulation properties, both thematically and acoustically,” Zoe says. “Standard features include solar, a water tank, Caesarstone kitchen and bathroom benchtops and stainless steel Smeg kitchen appliances.”

With 233 villas, Palm Lake Resort is big enough to feel like a small country town.

It is set in a relaxing location close to the South Werribee Marina and local shopping, but with so many different in-house activities, you won’t want to leave.

“Our Truganina facilities include our restaurant at the club, a gym, library, internet facilities, spa, workshop, bar, bowling green, games room, pool, indoor bowls and a barbecue area,” Zoe says.

“There’s actually more. I can’t think of them all … and we are actively adding to the activities on offer. The cinema and mini-golf are pretty popular.

“Palm Lake Resort is just a great place to live and the residents are really satisfied, which of course is what we are always striving for.”
