We recently booked a one night stay at Sky City as we were attending a work Christmas party, due to the low season (wet season) I was offered a reduced Territorian rate of $199 for a sea view room. On arrival I was offered valet parking - this service used to be complimentary, however it now costs an extra $15.00... More

After booking a Superior Spa room we quickly upgraded from Skycitys hotel to their Resort having opened around 2.5 years ago. These rooms are far superior to the hotel. The room is situated on their lagoon. Our room was a swim up room, basically walk out of the room onto the private balcony then sun tanning lounge area, straight into... More

Stayed in the new lagoon resort for one night for our 25th wedding anniversary awhile ago. Didn't get a ground level pool side room which would have been nice but the room we had overlooked the pool and was lovely. Great comfortable room, its was great to sit out on the balcony with friends and had a few drinks. Pool... More

Stayed only 1 night for work and wished i could have stayed longer. Staff were very friendly and happy to help when i checked out earlier and was waiting for colleagues. They held my bags and i sat by the beautiful pool. The rooms are medium sized. Good for 2 people. Balcony small but great view and nice sea breeze.... More

Beautiful setting but disappointed as paid for a balcony with sea-view as not allowed to access your balcony 'on the first floor' (balcony door locked tight with a key) and outside furniture removed; so no glass of wine in those wonderful sea breezes and had to cancel breakfast alfresco. Asked to be moved and was only offered an upgrade for... More

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary in a Lagoon resort king room for two nights. Direct entry into the beautifully kept pool was very welcome. The actual room itself was perfect. Clean, spacious and just what we wanted. Room service was great, as was the champagne and strawberries on arrival. Breakfast and dinner at the buffet was... More

Beautiful on sunset looking out to the ocean, Rooms are nice and tidy with good views as well. Stayed here for work and would stay again if the price is right. Pool has a great view and wasn't busy when I was there. Some of the restaurants there are quite pricey but food is good. Not in the main city... More
