AUSTRALIA: For many people, business trips are an integral part of your working life. But, after a long day of calls, presentations or meetings, it's also super important to relax and recharge your batteries ready for the next day... and that's where Adina Hotels, with our spacious apartment-style rooms with kitchen and laundries shine. So, if you're travelling for business post COVID-19, here are our tips for maintaining work-life balance.

Cook Your Own Supper

Prepping a tasty meal exactly the way you like it, is the perfect way to 'start' your evening at 'home'. For many, cooking is not just a means to an end, but way to relax and unwind... and it's even better when paired with a tasty local wine. All our studios and apartments throughout the Adina network come with a fully equipped kitchen including pots and pans and essential kitchen utensils. And when it comes to the all-important grocery shop, our hotels are conveniently located in city centres so you can easily pick up fresh produce.

Top Tip: If you're visiting South Australia, the Adelaide Central Market is a street food safari and an absolute must do.  Featuring 150-years of foodie know how, this market, bursting with local produce, cafes and characters,  is the oldest and one of the best in Australia. And the best thing?  It’s less than a two-minute walk from our gorgeous Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury.

Work Your Way to Wellness

It was invented by the Finns but adopted by the world!  After all, who doesn't love the cosy warmth and decadence of a sauna to recharge your batteries and relax tired muscles after a day spent on the go? Every Adina Hotel throughout our European hotel network and many throughout Australia boast a sauna and wellness area – including the Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne which is stone’s throw from the city’s chic boutiques, cool laneways and trendy bars - so you can heat up and cool down in absolute comfort.

DID YOU KNOW? Saunas not only soothe tired muscles, but they also relieve stress, improve cardiovascular performance, flush toxins and can help you sleep better. Or, for those that like a healthy start to the day, we invite you to indulge in a couple of lazy laps in the heated pool or catch a few z's on the cosy lounges before your working day begins.

Indulge in a Little Yoga or Meditation

Ohmmm. Yoga is a must if you want to glide gently out of work mode and leave the thoughts of the day behind. In our spacious studios and apartments there's plenty of room to roll out your yoga mat and continue your daily routine. Add a little soft music in the background to soothe the soul and let your mind to rest. And, when you stay at the Adina Apartment Hotel Brisbane, you can add Brisbane River views into the mix! 

If you're already an expert at bending and stretching, we recommend adding  some dynamic asanas - a single leg balance, standing cat cow or a plank to dolphin plank - to your yoga session... it's a wonderful way to relax into your day.

Let's Get Physical

There's no reason your exercise routine has to suffer because you're away from home. Trust us, after sitting for long periods of time at meetings, in a plane or on the train, your body will thank you for it. So, if you're a fitness fanatic with a preference for treadmill, weight training or resistance exercises using your own body weight, then we've got just the spot for you.  

All Adina Hotels offer modern fitness areas, so there's no excuse not to get physical… and hotels like Adina Apartment Hotel Sydney Town Hall or Adina Apartment Hotel Sydney Darling Harbour you can add Hyde Park and Sydney’s incredible harbourside walks to your list.

Get Your Motor Running 

After a long day at the office, running is the ultimate release. From the moment you lace up your shoes and put on your playlist to that sweet moment when your thoughts run free as your pound the pavement, running is nature's stress reliever.

Our friendly hotel teams know their local area like the back of their hands, so when you stay at an Adina Hotel, you can quite easily combine your after-work run with a mini sightseeing tour.  Adina Apartment Hotel Perth or Adina Apartment Hotel Perth Barrack Plaza, you have the gorgeous Kings Park and Botanic Garden, and The Swan River to run beside.

Insider Tip: If you like to pace yourself out on a longer run... there are plenty of quiet running tracks away from traffic and our city centres. The Tan Track is Melbourne's most popular running track and loops around Kings Domain and the Royal Botanical Gardens, south-east of Melbourne's CBD or The Bay Run just out of Sydney’s CBD is super scenic.

A Cultural Stress Reliever

For culture vultures, a visit to a new city offers the chance to uncover local cultural treasures. From art exhibitions to lectures or private viewings, a dose of local culture can provide the perfect pick-me-up when you're working away from home. Guests checking in the Adina Apartment Hotel Auckland Britomart have the added benefit of being closed to the Britomart shopping and cultural precinct, the ferry for day trips to indulge in New Zealand’s wine and food culture at Waiheke Island and a short walk to the Auckland Art Gallery Toi O Tamaki.  With 16,000 pieces dating from the 11th century to modern times and a swag of permanent and international exhibitions, you’ll get your cultural fix quite easily.

Pro Tip: Blend Business and Pleasure 

Don't underestimate the healing powers of Bleisure trips! The blending of business and leisure is growing popularity these days and a great way to make the most  of our busy lives.
