Multi-million dollar upgrades ranging from new bedding and kitchens to new colour schemes have been installed and unveiled at Adina Apartment Hotel Brisbane Anzac Square and Travelodge Resort Darwin.
The significant low-season renovation programs have seen all rooms at both resorts overhauled with new furniture and fresh designs along with the addition of new appliances to improve guest comfort.
Dove greys and whites have been applied as the hotel’s new colour scheme across all 96 studio, one and two-bedroom apartments, which have also been fitted with new parquetry flooring made from local silky oak, rose mahogany and walnut bean. New kitchens have been installed along with upgraded appliances and furniture.
Up at Travelodge Darwin, a $3.7 million wet season refurbishment program has seen all 168 rooms and 32 townhouses stripped back and a new design scheme fitted. New furniture including TFE Dreamcatcher bedding, smart TVs and upgraded WiFi functionality has been installed. Townhouses have been fitted with upgraded kitchens, while new laundries have been installed including washing machines and dryers for added guest comfort.
Public facilities including the hotel’s restaurant and function areas have been enhanced, with new fitness equipment also installed in the gym.
TFE Hotels Cluster General Manager for Darwin, Sid Bhatia, said the new rooms capture the essence of the Top End, while balancing modernity and a tropical resort experience.
“This refurbishment program provided the opportunity to support the local business community locally sourcing goods and equipment, and by using local trades and labour,” Bhatia said.
“Importantly, we also donated furnishings, fixtures, whitegoods and TVs to help benefit local community groups, and recycled where possible.”
