Cicada Lodge has shone again at the 2018 Hospitality NT Gold Plate Awards on October 1st, winning the Hotel Restaurant category.

“The Hospitality NT Awards for Excellence are recognised as the most prestigious awards in the hospitality industry”, said Nitmiluk Tours and Cicada Lodge COO Sveva Falletto, “and honour the achievement of excellence in NT hotels across a variety of segments.”

“These awards are a testament to the passion, creativity and hard work of the whole Cicada Lodge and Nitmiluk Tours teams. Our Executive Chef Adam Woods, together with Cicada Lodge Guests Services Manager Charlie Gourlay and Hospitality Operations Manager Brian Linklater were extremely pleased with the result and very thankful to the rest of their teams, which made this achievement possible.”

“Cicada Lodge was developed out of a dream to showcase the Nitmiluk region and the culture of our owners, the Jawoyn people; and to bring a new element to tourism in the Top End. In all facets of the operation – and in particular dining – we strive to achieve and deliver on that promise”, she said.

“Recognition of the excellence of the product in the region through awards such as this can only help grow our market profile”.
