Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel

1 Flinders St., Jabiru, Northern Territory, 0886, Australia

Shaped like a crocodile, this unusual hotel with spacious, refurbished rooms is the best of the area's accommodation options. The reception area, a de facto art gallery, is through the mouth, and the swimming pool is in the open courtyard in the belly. The property is owned by local indigenous people, who can advise on the best sights and tours. It is close to the Warranjan Cultural Centre and the Yellow Waters cruise. The on-site restaurant serves kangaroo and the hotel's namesake, crocodile, along with typical Western dishes.
