ROOM WITH A VIEW – AN ARTISTIC STAY IN ADELAIDE
Opened earlier this year, the first Hotel Indigo in Oz offers stylish vistas in spades
The opening of Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets earlier this year represented the boutique brand’s first foray into the Southern Hemisphere and has injected a shot of cool into the North Australian city.
The 145-room hotel is home to 25 suites including 18 premium suites with balconies, something of a rarity in the city. We think there’s no better place to rest your head than the Indigo Suite, which offers 52 sqm of space including a king bedroom and separate living area. Unique design touches include copper fixtures, contemporary light wood furnishings and colourful rugs depicting the distinctive tessellated tile pattern often used in traditional Adelaide homes, along with bold artwork paying tribute to the Adelaide Festival of Arts. The bedhead is emblazoned with festival-inspired murals while floor-to-ceiling windows deliver inspirational views over the city toward the Adelaide Hills.
Don’t forget to stop off for a drink (there’s 25 award-winning gins and a wide range of South Australian wines) and some Coffin Bay organic oysters or cured meats from Adelaide Central Market at the city’s highest rooftop bar, Merrymaker, which offers a cool panoramas of the CBD and Adelaide Hills from its 16th-floor vantage point. Alternatively, splash about in the 13m outdoor infinity pool before or after your sundowner on the balcony. adelaide.hotelindigo.com
