Rambutan in Townsville is not your average backpacker hostel
When you think of backpacking, the words luxury and glamour don’t usually come to mind. Well, that’s about to change!
The Rambutan Resort in Townsville is setting a new benchmark as Australia’s first ‘glam-packers resort’ (the term backpacker hostel is soooo ’90s), providing high-quality and uber stylish accommodation at a rate that won’t break the travel budget.
Let us take you on a photo tour of this chic new venue:
Set to be the newest hotspot for travellers and Townsville locals, the Rambutan resort’s playful and laid-back atmosphere makes it the perfect place to stay, grab a drink and enjoy yourself.
If you like a lil’ privacy, the resort boasts some beachy double and twin bedrooms.
Or if you feel like being a social butterfly, a bed in a dorm room starts at $24 per night and rooms cater to either mixed gender or cosy female only.
But if you really want to spoil yourself, book one of their roomy and quaint cottage-style King Rooms.
And for travellers always on the go, Rambutan also provides underground mobile campsites with access to power and secure parking.
Take a dip in the rooftop pool and follow it up with some lazy cocktails while lounging in one of their luxury poolside cabanas. #livingthedream
Or why not try their Rambutan lager house beer at the rooftop bar?
While living off two-minute noodles is all part of the backpacker experience, during your stay at Rambutan you can treat yo’ self to some drool-worthy cuisine at their restaurant.
With a smoke house imported from America, your poolside hangs can be peppered with South American inspired treats. Mmm, chicken wings!
Adding to its charm and character, Rambutan has mixed the old with the new in its architectural design.
Not only does the resort look incredible, but they’ve incorporated numerous elements of recycled materials. Kudos for being environmentally conscious!
So, to all you backpackers out there… welcome to the high life!
