The eco-friendly Ovolo Nishi in Canberra is a designer hotel through and through. From the attention-grabbing exteriors to spectacular interiors, this hotel is the epitome of cool. Safe to say, sustainability never looked better.
The rooms are furnished with locally salvaged and restored vintage furniture, and all artworks are original. Drawing inspiration from the Australian landscape, the interiors are dominated by earth colors: beige, brown, and ochre. The Sunrooms are brighter than Atrium so keep that in mind when making your booking.
Note that there’s an impressive range of freebies that come with your stay if you book through Ovolo Nishi’s site. They definitely like spoiling their guests rotten here, starting with free breakfast and in-room minibar to complimentary wine at happy hour. If you’re still hungry after free-flowing snacks, hit Monster Kitchen for a seasonal menu made with local ingredients.
Ovolo Nishi is not just a fad but a genuine art and design hotel. The onsite gallery showcases a carefully curated program of exhibitions exploring local identity, the natural world, and more. The small and intimate cinema screens arthouse films, and there’s a rich calendar of meetings, lectures, and performances to attend. The Canberra Museum and National Gallery of Australia are just a two-minute drive away for those craving more art and culture.
