Positives first: Beautiful remote location. Great driving and 4wd tracks in close proximity. Day trip to Kakadu within easy driving distance. Habitat cabins have lovely outlooks, quite private. The main lodge’s bar and deck show a stunning sunset daily. Sunset drinks tour and Billabong Cruise wonderful - guide Ralph is their best asset. Areas for improvement: Firstly, we loved our stay and found it to be a wonderful rural experience. My critical comments are regarding the ‘luxury’ description and speciality lodging price tag. With a few small tweaks Wildman could easily meet expectations in this bracket. This is a seasonal lodge, open only for a certain period each year which I imagine makes staffing tricky. The staff were all friendly and interesting with a high portion of them foreigners on working visas. I am guessing not all of these workers have experience in luxury service and it did show. For $780 per night we would have liked to have been welcomed at the door, doors opened for us and had our bags brought in. None of this happened and we had to wait at reception whilst staff were looking through photos on their phone. Service at the bar was very slow, no one ever came to us to take orders whilst by pool/sitting on deck. We were one of 6 guests in the entire resort for two nights so it wasn’t busyness preventing this service - simply lack of hospitality service experience. Breakfast was a very average buffet, dinner was nice but not gourmet as the price tag would suggest. The rooms are really nice but again don’t quite meet luxury standards with broken tiles, lights that don’t work and dirty windows. Again, nice property, amazing location and friendly staff but for the price it is in need of some polish and a step up in service.

We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It has a remote feel but is easily accessible from Darwin and the main road in a "normal" car. Our cabin was beautiful, very comfortable and sleek with big windows to admire the sweeping view, coffee machine, a large deck and the shower cubicle has a window so one can shower with a view! The tents look a bit crammed together. Wallabies fed just outside in the evening and early morning and there were many birds (and crocs!) in the nearby billabong. We loved the billabong cruise and sundowners excursion but were unfortunately too late in the season for an airboat trip on the flood plain as it was completely dry. The food wasn't as good as it might have been. If we hadn't had our own car we would have been a bit stuck with what to do during the day, as our two excursions were early in the morning and late afternoon and we didn't want to just chill all day.

Just a few hours from Darwin, this is a real experience. Excellent accommodation, food and pool. We loved waking up to the sounds of the birds. Our two night stay was a wonderful opportunity to relax and unwind.

Well we highly anticipated an excellent stay at the lodge and we weren't disappointed. For those that are critical of accommodation and meals remember this is the NT and distance, staff and fresh is hard to come by. For us, the stay was great having driven nearly 500km to get here. The staff are very friendly and efficient. We had a glamping tent and it is recommended. The heat of the day quickly disappeared and it was nice to sleep with the awnings open for the cool breeze. Very cold in the morning but there was plenty of blankets. The only criticism regarding the tents is that they could be a little further spaced apart. Sound carries easily and a little more distance between would have been well advised in the design set out. One other point is to get rid of the chairs on the open verandah, they are not well designed for relaxing to enjoy the ambience. Replace with 2 more upright chairs and a small table to enjoy the outside. The staff were so good, happy to chat without being overly intrusive. Well done team. A big wrap on the chef. We had 3 brilliant meals and class all the way. Finally a congratulations to Ralph the local guide, we did the billabong cruise and he is a wealth of knowledge. Wasn't over the top like some and quite open. We've done a few tours and having lived in NT and NTHQLD we learnt some more. Best time to travel May or September for the contrasts.

We really enjoyed our time here. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Our day at Kakadu with Danni was a highlight, as were our flight there (which lands and takes off right in front of the lodge) and our billabong cruise with Chiso. Tim, Calisto and Mel were great hosts in the bar and restaurant. We have a suggestion for another type of adventure: a nighttime billabong cruise to see the eyes of the crocs glow! Given how hot it gets there, we were very happy we reserved one of their cabins with AC. It worked well and we slept well because of it (even if we missed the nighttime sounds).
