We travelled here in the hot humid dry season and stayed 3 nights. Enjoyed the 2 bedroom cabin with its facilities and proximity to other venues. Staff service prompt and friendly. Parking right in front of cabin. Sma pool on site if you have time. I would go for cabins with raised front porch.

Stayed: October 2017

We stayed in the cabins with two bedrooms and thought that the place was really clean and comfortable. Jabiru at this time of the year seem to be rather deserted and we were like the only family at the resort which made it fun to have the pool all to ourselves in this extreme heat. A tip for people who wants to book this room is get yourself stocked up with food from a bigger supermarket before staying more than one night there. There is one supermarket at the town centre but the things are slightly more expensive than buying from the big supermarkets but they can be far away. The kitchen is well equipped with the basic cooking materials (for instant noodles or microwavable food). Air con was good in the rooms but not in the living area which makes it very warm at 41 degrees in the afternoon. The toilet being outside the hut is not a good idea, it means that children will be have to acompanied by adults to the toilets every time, and even at night.

We stayed in the newer, more luxurious cabins (rather small inside). The outside shower is nice, the outside day bed also. There is a little fridge, coffee and tea making facilities, a soft bed, airco and fan. There are not many facilities in the ‘resort’. The pool is extremely small (more for children to play) not really for a swim. We think you pay to much for what is offered. Maybe next time we have a look for some other accommodation…

The receptionist was very friendly and helpful and refunded our 3rd night without fuss, and I really don't want to give this a bad review but I have to warn other travellers who are especially travelling at this stiflingly hot time of year. I'm not sure about the other cabins, but our air con was an old banger than barely cooled the place in 42C, the bathroom was in a separate building which I think was initially built as an ensuite for caravans, and it was quite aged. So there is nowhere to really escape the heat. The pool is about the size of a standard backyard pool. The beds were comfy and it was clean, but everything except the beds needs updating. There is no restaurant and it's very quiet and bare this time of the year. Meanwhile, the place across the road Kakadu Lodge, where we should have stayed, has a huge fantastic pool with shade, and a great restaurant offering more than just steak and chips. We should have stayed there or the Crocodile Club, which we also checked out and they have a special going at the moment which is cheaper than Anbinik, and you get much, much better quality, and great aircon everywhere.

We are a local Darwin family with 2 boys (aged 4 and 7). We've stayed here several times but I've never done a review! Recently we had friends from Sydney visiting with their 2 kids (aged 12 and 14) and so we had a 4 night trip to see Kakadu.

I love the fact that Anbinik Kakadu Resort is owned and operated by Djabulukgu Association Incorporated representing the Traditional Owners of Northern Kakadu and parts of Western Arnhem Land.

The resort has a range of accommodation types to suit everyone.

Bush Bungalows
These are a single breezy room on stilts with a bunk and queen. They are best when it's not too hot. They have a little fridge and an outdoor area with a BBQ that you share with a few other bungalows. These would be ideal for a group of friends or even a few small families in the Dry Season.

2 Bedroom Cabins
There are 2 bedroom cabins - one room has 2 single beds and the second bedroom has a single and a queen bed. They sleep up to 5 people. These cabins are very practical for a family as they have aircon, a fridge and a kitchen area with a TV etc. You get your own bathroom but its just outside. They are simple inside, but clean, well set up and totally functional with everything you need.

There are a range of new totally stylish suites which I LOVE. They have groovy semi outdoor bathrooms (that are totally private), a king bed or 2 singles and a cute little balcony. There's aircon, a little fridge and stuff to make tea and coffee etc.

Group Accommodation
There's group style accommodation with well set up 6 double rooms that have air-conditioning, a TV, a small fridge and tea and coffee making facilities etc with a shared breezy common area with a kitchen etc.

There are also van sites etc.

Being October it was hot so we stayed in the 2 bedroom cabins which have air conditioning and our friends stayed in the new suites which also have air-conditioning.

It's totally funky being designed by Troppo Architects. The pool area is also really great with a great shallow area for little kids. There are gas BBQs outside and heaps of space for kids to run around, so it's perfect for families. I've heard rumours that a Thai restaurant may be opening here, so ask if you book because that would be amazing!

I love this place and it's where I tell all my friends and family to stay when they go to Kakadu!

Libby, Darwin

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom cabins are great for families because they have kitchens etc. The suites are funky and great for couples.
