All 255 rooms feature private balconies, serving as the perfect perch on which to enjoy your morning coffee. The interiors are bright and spacious, contemporary in style with pieces of local artwork that express the natural beauty of northern Australia.

Enjoy elegant waterside dining at North Bar and Kitchen, where a menu of contemporary Australian cuisine is complemented by craft beers and fine wines. You can also enjoy cocktails, champagne and light bites at the poolside bar or in the garden.

Take a dip in the tranquil waters of the outdoor pool or simply sunbathe on the loungers dotted around the area. Keep in shape by sticking to your routine at the fitness centre, fully equipped with state-of-the-art training equipment and gym facilities.
