WHEN it comes to location, travellers can’t go past the Adina Apartment Hotel Darwin Waterfront.
The apartment hotel sits between the city’s CBD and Stokes Hill Wharf, beside a wave pool and close to the protected swimming lagoon, in the redeveloped waterfront precinct which is home to a collection of shops and eateries.
There’s the choice of studio rooms, as well as one and two-bedroom apartments, and all come with the comforts of home which make it easy to enjoy a self-catered stay in Australia’s steamy Top End.
Those guests lucky enough to score a room with a view look across the parkland surrounding the lagoons to Stokes Hill Wharf and boats moving around Darwin Harbour.
And the central location means it’s just a short walk to the CBD — a lift means guests don’t need to climb the steps up to the city’s level — and the seafood restuarants out on Stokes Hill Wharf.
My studio room, which has two big windows, also features a well-stocked kitchenette and sitting area as well as a desk.
The property is a cool and quiet retreat from the heat of a destination that experiences hot and dry weather in the dry season and hot and humid in the wet.
The Adina Apartment Hotel Darwin Waterfront boasts a swimming pool, Curve Restaurant & Bar serves modern Australian cuisine with room service available, and the lobby has lots of comfortable lounges.
