Marrakai Luxury All Suites Darwin
Ranked #30 of 36 Hotels in Darwin
Reviewed 19 August 2012

We had a two bedroom apartment which was big although the triple share room included a very small double bed barely big enough for two people. The décor is dated but it’s generally clean and comfortable although not to stay in more than a night or so.

The location is great if you want to be able to walk into Darwin town centre but there is quite limited parking area at the front of the building.

Generally this is overpriced for what you get but given the location it’s better than some other options.

Well reading through the reviews I wondered if we had stayed at the same place. Our apartment was fantastic. Huge loungeroom with two sofas. Brilliant kitchen. Two bathrooms, one with a double shower. And a lovely balcony. It felt so spacious after hotel rooms. The service was excellent and I would recommend highly.

We stayed at this place for 3 days and found the location ideal. The room was on the 15 floor facing the ocean, afternoon breeze was great sitting on the deck. The units are clean and tidy, may need a face lift at some point. The people running the office were very accommodating

Stayed: August 2012

We have just returned from a ten night stay in Darwin. These apartments are spacious and well apointed. The kitchen was clean and the beds were comfortable and it has two bathrooms. On top of this we had a superb view of the Darwin sunset every night from our large balcony. The July weather was perfect and the pool was warm enough to swim in every day. A great place to escape the winter.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment with a sunset view.

The apartment was large, clean and comfortable. It appears all the apartments are decorated differently making it difficult to talk about all apartments. The one we were in had LCD TV in the lounge and both bedrooms. The main bedroom had a queen bed and an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom had a queen and single bed. The apartment was fully airconditioned and the balconies had a great cooling breeze. The pool was well maintained and the BBQ area nice and clean. A good place to stay with a family as there are lawns the children can play on as well as the pool and spa areas.

All the things one wants is there, may not quite be 'luxury' in today's terms. One needs to remember this building was the first 'high rise' in Darwin.

Room Tip: Select one that has the morning sun as the afternoons can be quite hot.

Hi all, i ve been traveling to Darwin rather regularly since 2001 and tried out a few hotels and resorts up there, however nothing compares with the marrakai which is my only choice to stay at these days!

The location is superb. It's smack in the middle of the city, only a few mins walk to cbd mall and waterfront one direction or Cullen bay, casino and mindil beach in the other. 

And all that space of a huge two bedroom apartment you get (ask the friendly ladies at the reception for higher floor for killer views all around the bay)!! Yes, it comes at a bit of a premium, but it's affordable for a big family or two couples sharing.
