Bali Studio - is a small hotel room within a well presented complex in the heart of Parap. Cool and comfortable, a nice retreat at the end of a day of sightseeing, with all conveniences at hand.
The room itself has air-conditioning and fan. Ensuite. Facility for tea and coffee making, toaster and microwave for heating meals. Upstairs is a larger kitchen, gym room and coin-operated laundry.
Bali Studio is ground floor, opening out onto a wooden walkway with seating amongst the palms. East facing for bright sunny mornings and cool shaded afternoons, it has the perfect aspect.
Car parking, on a first come first served basis is just beyond.
A wander through the complex will bring you to a lagoon style salt-water swimming pool. Surrounded by tropical foliage and recliner beds, this is a pleasant area for cooling off and chilling out. Fully fenced to safety standard.
Parap Village is located just across the road. Containing notable establishments such as Parap Fine Foods, Laneway Coffee and many others, this is a vibrant inner-city part of Darwin. Saturday mornings see the year round market, for produce, handicraft and international food stalls.
Further afield, within the 1 km radius between Parap and the CBD are all of the city's tourist sights -
Botanic Gardens - beautiful and unique

A great place to stay. Character. Convenience. Location. Peace and quiet. And a chance to experience a little more of Darwin, yet be on the doorstep of all the sights of the city.
