Fodor's Expert Review Mindil Beach Casino Resort

Gilruth Ave. Fodor's Choice

The most luxurious place to stay in Darwin, the three-story hotel adjacent to the Mindil Beach Casino offers oceanfront accommodations set amid lush lawns and gardens plus 32 resort rooms and suites surrounding a huge lagoon-style swimming pool. Some rooms even offer direct access to the pool from their private balconies. As of summer 2018, the separate infinity pool near the casino is now Darwin’s only beach club, Infinity. It has eclectic DJ sets on Friday and Saturday after 2 pm.

  • award-winning restaurants on-site
  • next door to Mindil Markets

CONS

  • casino operates 24 hours, so nights can be noisy
  • convention center attracts big groups
