IMPERSONAL, NOT FUNCTIONAL,TIRED AND IN NEED OF A GOOD OVERHAUL.NO VALUE FOR MONEY
This Owner does not seem to care/want to make their apartment functional or feel special for guests who are having a holiday in Darwin.
The Air Conditioning was not working to all parts of the apartment, especially the bedrooms, bathrooms and hallway. (No one in management seemed to know how it worked) Hence Day 1 and 2 the apartment smelt after being closed up with non functioning AC.
No inside dining table or chairs. (it would have been nice to have a choice too to eat outdoors or in, as well as have a place to sit and read, etc.)
Management, bought a sharp kitchen knife, as initially, the only one there was blunt. She also bought steak knives, into our stay. Unfortunately, there was no BBQ.The quality of the cutlery, lack of saucepans and kitchen ware was an insult for those who want to cook during their stay.
The toaster - the Left hand side of toaster has an electrical fault, it does not work
Nespresso machine - no pods (even if catered just for day 1)
An apartment Review from July 2018 talks of "leaking fridge"... it is still leaking!
When we arrived, a glass bowl was in fridge catching "the leak". Unfortunately, our food caught "the leak" when we took the bowl out and then proceeded across the kitchen floor. Our fruit and vegetables were affected and other items leaked on.(not good enough, one does not want to be continuously wiping up puddles in fridge and on floor during their holiday)
In both Bedrooms there was no shelving in cupboards,only 2 bedside tables that had 2 small drawers to put all our clothes (3 adults) We lived out of our suitcases from the floor. Some plastic hangers were provided of which several were broken.
Bedside lamps were not at all good for reading they need to be much more effective.
In Bedroom 2 the lamp shades were cracked and tatty.
Suggestion for owners that could be an effective design feature, a large clock informing visitors of Darwin time.
Overall we were very disappointed with our stay. Having been at another 3 bedroom apartment an the Waterfront Precinct, in the previous week (at a lesser cost), we feel that the tired and unwelcoming ANANYA apartment needs to be seriously given a homely, welcoming and mainly functional overhaul. With those lovely views and location, how enlightening and enjoyable should our holiday have been if their was a little care and effort.
what a great spot, perfect location
We had a lovley week over the school holidays. ANANYA is in a great location and we could walk to Darwin CBD in about 5 min, but we spent lots of time swimming in the beautiful lagoon / beach area right outside the door. It's also a great precinct for restaurants, cafes and bars and we walked about 50 meters to a different restaurant every night. We traveled to Litchfield National Park one day and ANANYA was a great location to travel around and explore the grater Darwin area. Very clean and comfortable with everything needed to make a very comfortable stay weather for holiday or business.
Darwin Location Ideal for work
Ananya was a great location for five days working in Darwin. The apartment is well fitted, comfortable and very well located at the waterfront. The balcony proved to be an excellent place to continue some work into the evenings.
We enjoyed meals out on the wharf and visited Mindil Markets on the Thursday night.
We had a great stay at Ananya, the location is fantastic, the apartment is very spacious and nicely presented with everything we needed and has lovely views. Thank you.
Lovely location. Leaking fridge.
Comfort with style
Fantastic location on the waterfront with beautiful views from the balcony. The apartment is very well layed out with comfortable beds & couches. The apartment is nice and quiet with lush surroundings.
Darwin Waterfront offers not only the safe swimming lagoon and the Wave Pool but also a variety of restaurants including Fiddler's Green Irish Pub, The Coffee Club, mini supermarket, hairdresser, retail shops, etc all within an easy 5 minute walk into the heart of the CBD via the Sky Bridge.
