It's no secret that the Mercure and Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s is under major construction. Over the years the most commonly received feedback from our guests and clients is: The rooms and the whole place is looking a bit tired and needs a facelift. Between both Mercure and Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s it can be loud and intimidating with the ongoing construction. However, it is long awaited and is guaranteed to be worth it!

So here we are! The well-deserved TLC the Mercure and Novotel Darwin Airport has needed. It is a huge thanks to our owners, the Airport Development Group (ADG) who have committed to transforming the Mercure & Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s into a world class destination. 

Construction first started at the Mercure Darwin Airport Resort focusing on the transformation of our beloved Bungalows that had never received a refurbishment since opening in 2006! Our now popular and luxurious Tropical Pool Villas completed in July 2021 followed by Deluxe Queens and Deluxe Bungalows already available at the Mercure Darwin Airport Resort. There are more rooms on the way! 

It’s all very exciting as we are ongoing construction with the next stage of integrating the Mercure and Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s in progress.

Unfortunately, with construction comes quite a few obstacles. For example, the construction has now entered the next stage that has resulted with limited car parking availability at both Mercure and Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s. It remains free for all our guest and clients at Mercure and Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s. There is unavoidable noises and unfortunately it is out of our control. We are still operating as normal throughout the ongoing construction and we do apologies for any inconvenience. However, we ask all our guests and clients to be patient and bear with us. It is a working progress!

In regards to the location of our hotel car parking arrangements. It is still walking distance to both hotels. The Mercure and Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s Parking is located next to the Novotel Darwin Airport Hotel’s. If you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact our friendly staff.

The Mercure Cossie’s Bar and Bistro and the newly refurbished Novotel Poolside Restaurant are available to our guests for tropical and relaxing dining experience. However, there are also plans for new restaurants, pools and conference facilities included in the renovations.

The world class renovations is scheduled to be finished by 2023!
