Mantra Pandanas

+61 8 8901 2900.

Neatly situated in the heart of the city, Mantra Pandanas has 336 hotel rooms as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments, some with private balconies overlooking the harbour and city. Expect a chic tropical style, evident in the modern rooms and down at the pool, which features its own waterfall.

43 Knuckey Street, NT 0800, Darwin, Australia

Skycity Darwin

+61 8 8943 8888.

It's always a gamble staying at a casino, especially if you're open to temptations. This place is a winner, though. It’s a casino hotel set among 7 hectares (17 acres) of tropical beachside gardens. There is a selection of dining options on-site as well as a pool. It’s also very close to the Mindil Beach Markets.

Oaks Elan Darwin

+61 8 8982 1888.

This impressive newbie is a 301-room property with a range of one- and two-bed apartments. It has a decent central location, while the in-house restaurant, O.A.K., is another good reason to visit. Private balconies, air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi are all part of the deal too.

31-33 Woods Street, Darwin, Australia

Value Inn

+61 8 8981 4733.

Don’t be put off by the name, all the rooms in this affordable city centre hotel feature queen sized beds, a single bed, air conditioning and en suite facilities. There are also three pools, a licensed bar, and a spa available for guest use at Melaleuca on Mitchell, the award-winning backpackers hangout across the road.

50 Mitchell Street, NT 0800, Darwin, Australia

Vibe Hotel

+61 2 9356 5062.

A fresh and funky boutique hotel in the Waterfront Precinct, expect fine harbour views, several swimming pools with bars, an excellent restaurant and all the usual high-end trimmings. It’s adjacent to its sister property, Adina Grand Waterfront, which is similarly appealing. All rooms have Wi-Fi access, digital TVs and round-the-clock room service.

7 Kitchener Drive, NT 0800, Darwin, Australia

Novotel Darwin CBD

+61 8 8941 0755.

Formerly the Novotel Darwin Atrium, this mid-range hotel overlooks the coast and sits a short stroll from the buzz of Mitchell Street. There are 140 rooms in total, and they’re nice enough to make the relatively affordable price a big draw. It also has what it refers to as a “tropical indoor rainforest” – not many crocs to be found, though.

100 The Esplanade, NT 0800, Darwin, Australia

Darwin FreeSpirit Resort

+61 8 8935 0888.

A laid-back campsite and resort sitting 15 minutes’ drive from central Darwin, this is arguably the best of the city’s out-of-town options. It’s popular with families, thanks in part to the presence of three swimming pools. You’ll also find BBQ areas and a bar-bistro among its tropical palm trees and gardens.

901 Stuart Highway, Holtze, NT 0829, Darwin, Australia

Chillis Backpackers

+61 8 8941 9722.

A lively backpacker joint in peak season, this hostel offers budget rooms in the heart of the city, with a mix of private doubles and shared dormitory accommodation. Facilities include a launderette, a pool, an internet cafe, a sun deck and a kitchen. There are even a couple of (mercifully cool) whirlpool Jacuzzis.

69 Mitchell Street, NT 0800, Darwin, Australia

The Cavenagh
