Last Friday afternoon we checked into Vibe Hotel at the Waterfront. 23 hours later we checked out! We were on holiday in Darwin – sitting around the swimming pool, relaxing and reading a book and wandering over to Trampoline for our favourite Classic Chocolate ice cream (in our swimmers).
Friday night we dressed up and went for our Valentine’s date at Il Lido. We had window seats, great service and a three course dinner with a glass of sparkling wine. All included within a special deal with Vibe Hotel, only valid for the month of February.
As a bonus it was Chinese New Year celebrations up in the Mall. The Lion Dance Troupe from The Chung Wau Society bestowed blessings on businesses in the Mall and into the Star Arcade. Dragons in elaborate gold costumes gyrated and danced. Their eye lids fluttered, fluffy eyebrows winked, drums rolled and firecrackers exploded.
Then it was back to Vibe for some more relaxation.
