My wife and I have stayed in a number of 5 star eco lodges around the world. Wildman has the potential to be be truly great, but it needs lots of hard work.
The safari tent was great. Well appointed and very comfortable. When planning they could have been a little more spread out and not in a straight line.
The food was terrible, certailnly not 5 star, it would be lucky to scrape in 2 - 3 star. We have stayed in other remote lodges in the NT who have done this much better.
The girls who served were great, the boy just couldn't care less...sorry if we bothered you! There is no excuse for such poor service.
The resort needs to work on the experience, we wanted to walk, but were advised to just walk along the road. When we did venture towards the back of the resort, towards the billabong, there were huge piles of rubbish. There needs to be more walks and activities. Neddie was great, it would be outstanding to have more of the traditional owners available to share their experiences.
I hope that the resort improves quickly, there is such a shortage of choice once yu get out of Darwin.
