Note: We are offering a choice of four room types in the Ramada Zen, all of which are serviced hotel apartments. All rooms contain a full kitchen, washing machine/dryer and cooking implements. Please click this self-contained Hotel Room Types at Ramada Suites Darwin link which will show you all seven apartment configurations. For simplicity, we have chosen four separate types and negotiated rates accordingly. All include breakfast and daily room servicing.
Here is the layout of an Executive Harbourview apartment: Very suitable for married couples and the most economical option.
Deluxe Junior Suite: At 64 sq metres they are larger than the Executive Harbourview apartment, boasting a bigger lounge / living area and a separate bedroom and ensuite.
Twin apartment: Also suitable for married couples, but mainly for sharing with someone “you don’t wish to sleep in the same bed with!” Has a separate bedroom with a queen bed and a single bed.
Two-bedroom apartment: Suitable for two individuals who want their own bedroom and privacy. As the name implies this apartment has two separate bedrooms each with a queen bed and ensuite bathroom. Hence the most expensive price. Two couples might want to choose this option. Why not enquire about the reduction in price?
Your Booking Form will reflect the different tour prices and you will be asked which option you want. If you are travelling on your own and are happy to be sharing with another single person who wants the same option, please indicate whether you want to be in a Twin Room, or a Two Bedroom Apartment. We will do our best to match you up. If we can’t then we’ll talk to you about an outcome.
