Infinity pools are usually reserved for plush hotels, but these apartments have access to a rather stylish version; perfect for a cool down after a session in the on-site spa or gym. After, fire up the barbecue on the sleek black-tiled poolside terrace for a post-workout protein fix. Located in the leafy Kingston suburb, and close to its modern Australian eateries and gourmet foodie markets, you’ll have a hard time deciding whether to say in or go out every night

    A downside to choosing an apartment over a hotel room is that you usually have to clean it yourself. Not here. Housekeeping will replenish the complimentary items such as toiletries and coffee pods, and give your place a daily spritz. The North Canberra property offers stylishly designed self-contained apartments with interconnecting rooms for families or groups, pet-friendly rooms, and studios designed specifically for people with impaired mobility.
