I have been to the dugong resort twice this calendar year for at least two weeks a shot. It is a beautiful place with various wildlife right outside my bungalow door. Wallabys and colorful birds greet you in the morning. The staff has been more than accommodating! Tim and Jihad will take good care of you! I love this resort!... More

I travel a lot and stay at a range of locations. The Dugong resort is a positive stand out. The range of rooms are all quality well presented clean and fresh. The capacity to have a wide range of meals is appreciated. The location is very private and feels secluded without being "remote" . The absolute beach frontage is special.... More

I stay here fairly regularly on business. If you are seeking seclusion & privacy in beautiful natural surrounds consider this place. Its situated just out of Alyangula right on the foreshore. You can do beach walks, go fishing and play golf nearby. Basic shopping, pharmacy and coffee shop on main settlement. Can purchase meals at the resort. Need a hire... More

If you ever land on Groote Eylandt, or you make it your destination, I advise the comforting rooms and exquisite service of the Dugong Beach Resort. Be aware, not much of a beach as the waters are crocodile infested. However, lovely choice of rooms, especially the "fishing huts" give you a splendid view of the ocean. The Restaurant has a...

I work all over the top end, i always look forward to my Groote Eylandt week as I get to stay here. Rooms are excllent and the restaurant serves meals from a menu that would not be out of place in any capital city. Staff are always very friendly. Excellent.

The resort is beautiful. The rooms at the front are spacious and clean. The bath is huge and the bed is very comfortable. Staff are excellent and the pool is lovely. There is a small but adequate gym.

I arrived by helicopter after a hard day's air work in Arnhem Land and was grateful for the warm welcome and efficient check-in. I was assigned Suite 234 in the Motel wing which I found easily after a short walk. Very comfortable and spacious, with up-to-the-minute bathroom. The Resort sprawls over a large area, with a range of bungalows, cabins... More

I forgot to write a review for the dugong which I have stayed many times for work. This is a beautiful resort on Groote and if you get the chance you should visit. Amazing food and views plus beautiful rooms and some with spas overlooking the ocean. Surrounded by Aboriginal tradition and culture you can do some amazing day trips... More
