Nice place to stay, close to the airport in Darwin (5 minute walk to front door). Great pool and nice rooms with friendly staff. I only stayed for a night before an early flight, but was happy with the experience.

This is a terrific place to stay. They have a bus to and from the airport and it will also drop you at the Casuarina shopping centre however you have to get a taxi to return to the resort. We had booked a Bungalow not knowing they had units with a kitchen separate bedroom and a bathroom with a spa... More

We stayed here for the last 3 nights in Darwin and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful pool, pool area and bar area where you can relax or dine. Facilities clean and comfortable as was our room. No airport noise was heard. Only 1 restaurant in complex and one across the road so if you're making this your base you will need... More

Fantastic feedback and tips GlorsSa, also fantastic that you spent 3 nights with us and got to truly relax and experience our property. So often we are a quick stop and we merely tease our guests with the lagoon pool and relaxed atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers Jamie More

A stunning entry foyer & beautiful pool, such an inviting warm welcome to the NT when arriving by plane. Great location, just a short walk to the airport. Reception desk a little slow, but otherwise a great option for your first or last night in the NT.

We were looking for a place close to airport and this was great. Nice pool and breakfast buffet ok without being spectacular. Bar at night fine but barman keen to close up early (9:30pm). Rooms good, clean and comfortable.
