What’s near Ramada Suites by Wyndham Zen Quarter Darwin?
Hop in a taxi and you’ll be anywhere in Darwin in minutes. The Darwin Waterfront Precinct is two minutes by car; Deckchair Cinema is four (as are the restaurants of Mitchell Street) and the Mindil Beach Sunset Market, on the other side of the city, is a mere seven-minute drive.
Simple and spacious, Ramada’s apartments favour function over fancy design flourishes. The kitchens are impressively equipped, inclusive of stovetops, ovens, dishwashers, microwaves and, for longer stays — and larger groups — the washer/dryer combo is a welcome addition. There are also comfy down pillows and generous balconies large enough for alfresco dining.
Restaurants and bars
Horizen Cafe is the block’s on-site breakfast offering, open until 10.30am every morning (with a complimentary serving of snacks from 3pm). You’ll find the classics: pancakes with maple syrup, eggs and bacon on English muffins and omelettes with toast for kids.
Travel for work
All rooms have space for remote working — and free wi-fi — while the two on-site dedicated meeting and event spaces deliver sweeping Darwin views from a wraparound balcony, if you have a colleague or client to impress.
Gym and pool
The hotel’s saltwater pool is generous, with an edge that has views out over the city. There’s also an on-site fitness centre and play equipment set on soft astroturf for younger guests.
What you need to know
Horizen is licensed — so grab a drink alongside your 3pm nibbles on the balcony for a relaxed ending to your Darwin day.
