My husband and I celebrated our 9th anniversary at this hotel for the first time on the 13th of January and we are so thankful that we booked the lagoon resort room at a cheaper price online. We did not regret on celebrating our anniversary here. We checked in earlier than the check in time around 11am - for free...

Last mid year we had the pleasure of 8 days at Sky City Room 501. This is a swim out room with disabled bathroom facilities (only room left ). This was a stroke of luck because it had a huge double shower basins just perfect for wash up after the pool and when our kids came for a visit with...

We had a double room with Ocean View which was lovely. The Balcony is big enough to squeeze in 2. There is enough to do and restaurants & bars to visit plus 2 large pools to keep you busy for a couple of days without leaving the complex. Especially if you like to have a punt in the casino. Personally...

The room was good, we had a one bedroom suite. Perfect for us and kids. The bed was terribly hard and annoying there wasn't any blackout curtains. Other than that, the staff is amazing, the breakfast buffet is fantastic, love the lagoon and overall a great place for a getaway!:)

Darwin's wet season pricing coupled with SKYCITY is a recipe for success. Less than $100 per night at a 5 star resort on the seafront of a capital city! Check in was a breeze, Debbie at concierge was extremely friendly and helpful. Ensuring the room configuration for booking suited the needs of our family. Check-in bonus was a handful of...

Stayed last week at Skycity Darwin for 2 nights . Great value for money. All amenities you need from casino to restaurants and a great ocean view. If they keep the rates around those I would stay there every trip. I go to Darwin approx 6-8 times per year.

You think the amount on the bill you get when you leave, is the amount the hotel takes from your creditcard......think again and check it. They charged us for a present from their shop, we didnot buy anything. They promised us not to charge for a late arrival, noshow was charged on our cc. We had some discussion via email...
