This was a brilliant hotel and everything contributed to a great stay. Rooms were large and attractive with balcony views that were breathtaking. Meals were available at the casino and ranged from economical snacks to top of the range restaurant and and amazing buffet. The sunset views over the water were a photographers delight. Although not serious casino attendees there... More

We called around a year ago to stay in the Lagoon Access rooms at the Skycity Lagoon Resort to be told that these rooms were already occupied. We were told that we could ask be placed on request for the room upgrade and ask closer for availability and if available we could pay a further $50 a day which would... More

I stayed in a lagoon King room swim out. The room itself was lovely with a lovely deck, sun chairs and lounge on the balcony and a beautiful bathroom with deep bath. Location was great. Mindil Markets next door, but that ended up creating lots of noise all night :(

We stayed for just one night and would rate the deluxe room allocated to us as just average though it seems that other rooms have been done up and rate much higher. There was a very tiny balcony which had a side way view of the beach but was accessed by stepping over a strange raised window ledge. The shower... More

I have always loved heading to Darwin for a bit of winter warmth, and have spent over 50 nights at Skycity. I can not recommend the hotel and its surrounds highly enough. However the new lagoon rooms are the absolute optimum in Australian Hotel accommodation. Everything about the lagoon resort exudes class. The rooms are appointed absolutely perfectly, the lagoon...

We are regular annual visitors to Sky City Casino Hotel and pretty much love the place but management please heat the pools up a bit - they are FREEZING, especially the infinity pool. Complaints from ourselves and several other guests were to no avail. We spoke to the guys cleaning the pool who said the heat exchanger was broken and... More

Skycity Darwin is one of our favourite places to stay when in Darwin. Rooms are spacious and well set out. Ocean, pool and garden view rooms are a must. Swimming pool if fantastic and to top it off you are just a few metres from the beach (swimming only during safe seasons.). Location is within walking distance to the Mindl... More

Accommodation was great, tidy rooms, with great views when on the waterfront. Restaurants have excellent food, no matter which one you choose. Sunset restaurant is the cheaper option (buffet). Friendly staff. Have stayed here numerous times and never been disappointed.

The new Suites in the Skycity Darwin are beautifully appointed and overlook the most beautiful pool with man-made beach. Did not want to leave! Wonderful loation beside the beach and famous Mindil Markets. Breakfast restaurant also overlooks the pool. A fantastic end to our NT adventures.
