              The location was stunning, staff were excellent and we loved the room. The place exuded a very luxurious, exclusive ambience. We'd love to have eaten there but unfortunately there was no option to have lunch, and dinner was served too late in the evening for me to eat a three course meal. The complimentary canapes offered were very tasty and although the menu offered each evening looked very appetising, the choice was too limited for people with special dietary requirements. The pool was a little too small for my liking, but otherwise the design was faultless perfection.

              Expected more for the price tag and the 3 course meal was just awful, I think we were unlucky and stayed the wrong night as many reviews say otherwise. But the main course, seafood Tom yum, was awful. The room was beautiful, but again, the price of it wasn't justified. We expected some sort of feature for that sort of money, such as an outdoor shower, a larger balcony, a pathway down to the gorge perhaps... But there was nothing :( just a small pool, that's it. Shame.

              Absolute Perfection”

              The staff were professional, helpful and friendly. Rooms were elegant and connected with nature. Food exquisite and plentiful.

              Our stay was perfect from arrival to departure. We were greeted with champagne in a relaxed atmosphere without the formal reception desk and from this point it was as if we were old friends or family returning home!! The attention to detail, from personalised menus to the little notes left by the wonderful girls who attended the rooms always brought a smile to your face. This is not a budget holiday stay and therefore expectations are quite high but the staff, chef, everyone surpassed them all. The food was exquisite, with an abundance at breakfast including hot food cooked to order, no luke warm buffets here!! Dinner in the evening was equally as good if not better, with the chef using alot of local and bush produce. The staff were well knowledged in the food supplied and the best wine to accompany each course. (Have to say though that the happy hour is not to be missed, with food and as much to drink as your heart desires - all inclusive in your stay). This is a 5 star stay with a difference due to the remoteness of Cicada Lodge but it is a must, especially if you are going to partake in a highly recommeded dinner cruise on the Katherine Gorge (which can be arranged by the Lodge). My husband and I were celebrating his 60th birthday and we left to hugs and tears as if leaving home again. It is not often we will revisit places, as there is so much else to see but we will make an exception for Cicada Lodge - even if it is a long way from Brisbane!! Well done to everyone involved in this venture, long may it continue and prosper and hopefully inspire other centres in the Northern Territories.

              room, location, cleanliness

              The place is beautiful and in a perfect location. The staff were very nice and helpful when they had time to focus. They definitely need more help, though. Our biggest concern, though, was with Agoda. The hotel claims that Agoda won't release info on guests, such as email addresses, which means that they could not contact us ahead of time to ask about tours, dietary restrictions, etc. It meant we missed out on some opportunities we had thought would be available but that were sold out. Since we will probably never make it back to that part of the country, it was disappointing.

              Luxury in the wilderness”

              Meals, luxurious accommodation & proximity to the natural attractions of Katherine Gorge

              We had 4 glorious nights with plenty to do in the vicinity at Katherine Gorge & surrounds. We loved the helicopter tour to the rock art site & swimming hole. The staff at Cicada were wonderful & treated us like royalty. The only tiny criticism would be that the staff weren't entirely familiar with the attractions in the vicinity due to their relatively short tenure at the spot but online research & the nearby Visitor Centre completed the picture. We would highly recommend Cicada Lodge.
