We booked here because of positive TripAdvisor reviews. The bungalows were well appointed and roomy enough for a couple to not trip over each other. There's no restaurant but meals are only a 5 minute walk (or short drive) away at the Rum Jungle Tavern which we found to be better than expected. The first morning's breakfast was provided in...

We loved our 2-night stay at Rum Jungle Bungalows, it was a perfect base from which to explore nearby Litchfield National Park. The bungalows are immaculately kept and the pool was great for cooling off. It's easy to walk to nearby pubs for an evening meal, and the welcome breakfast provided was really delicious. Highly recommend!

Quite small, with just a few separate rooms beautifully choreographed into a shady oasis, we were disappointed as to only having one night available before moving on. Sue was a charming hostess, and very helpful in describing the options available in the Litchfield NP. As a result, we were able to make two trips in, on the afternoon of our... More

Owner Sue has created a wonderful tropical garden setting for her comfortable bungalows. A tranquil spot to relax and a convenient base to explore Litchfield National Park. Only an hour to Darwin but you need a car to reach Batchelor. Breakfast includes fruit such as papaya from her own garden.

This has to be the best place to stay in the Batchelor/Litchfield area. The bungalows are private and comfortable in a very peaceful shady garden setting. Sue provided a wealth of information and suggestions for our brief visit and her advice on where to go, what to see and where to eat was perfect. Complimentary breakfast was a bonus. I... More

Brilliant little place to stay. There are 6 bungalows, so you get a real feeling of privacy. Tastefully decorated, lovely and cool inside, with a shaded veranda outside to enjoy your complimentary breakfast! Lovely little pool for a dip (if you get chance from exploring Litchfield with its' many pools), and a great location. We took a quick walk down... More

Thank you for taking time to write such a lovely review. I'm so pleased you would still love to stay again considering your 'squeaky bed" experience. The hand carved plantation teak beds do look great...but can squeak from time to time. We're sorry if you didn't have a 'peaceful' sleep! Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments... More

After a long day of driving from Katherine and hitting all the swimming pools at Litchfield, checking into Rum Jungle B's was calming and relaxing. Butterflies flying around, shaded areas, cool pool - what a welcome and nice way to relax for a few hours. The cabin has all that you need for a quite stay and the breakfast goodies... More

We stayed here in July and it was a wonderful place. Sue was very kind and the bungalows are great. There is an area where you can cook dinner and have breakfast. The pool is small but great for a quick dip. We loved it!

'Perfect!' - We are always very pleased when people enjoy their stay at the Bungalows. You must have been brave (or from Melbourne) to have enjoyed a quick dip in the our shady pool! July is our coldest month, but can feel relatively 'hot' compared to southern climes! Thank you so much for your kind and lovely review. More
