Perfectly positioned to make the most of the Australian outback, Sails in the Desert is just a 5-minute walk from the Uluru (Ayers Rock) lookout and is a great spot to take in the desert sunrise or... Our room was EXCELLENT. The entire place was really nice & exceeded our expectations.
Desert Gardens Hotel offers air-conditioned rooms, some with a private balcony or views of Ayers Rock (Uluru). Guests can unwind in the outdoor pool, or at the restaurant and bar. The hotel was perfect! We stayed at the Desert Gardens for 3 nights - the room was really modern and the pool / reception / restaurant was only a short stroll away. It was my partners 30th Birthday and the team at Desert Garden's gave us a room wiht a view of Uluru & also a complimentary bottle of wine.
Emu Walk Apartments are just a short walk from Ayers Rock Resort center. Each apartment is air-conditioned and has a TV with free-to-air channels, plus a balcony or veranda. The family apartment was exactly what we needed after a long drive from coober pedy. Extremely clean, cool, relaxing environment. The room even had a washing machine to catch up on road trip washing. Although it was extremely hot, the pool was amazing, the local amenities including IGA supermarket was a welcome sight. Staff were really friendly, definitely be returning in cooler weather.
At Ayers Rock there are soo many activities to do from The Base Walk around Uluru, to the Valley of Winds at the Olgas. Take in the Field of Light tour late at night and enjoy a different perspective from high above with pilot Amanda @Ayers Rock Helicopters it was by far a highlight of our trip and definitely worth it. Make the most of every sunrise and sunset from the different lookout points not one sunset is the same or sunrise. Grab your morning nibbles from the Training Academy Cafe as the coffee and muffins were amazing.
This was our first time to Uluru and we were absolutely amazed by the shear beauty and magic of the area. We started early in the morning to beat the heat and walked the perimeter of the base of the rock. The amount of vegetation and wildlife amazed us. We experienced sunrise and sunsets and were amazed by the different colours that Uluru changed to as the sun moved across the face. A wonderful experience.
the walk around the Uluru with beautiful description of the traditional owners beliefs and way of life and it made me happy there was no more climbing up the Uluru rock that was very disrespectful towards the traditional owners
we loved the desert camel ride taking in the sunrise and Uluru and Kati TJUTA DOMES ..Magnificent to think that we had been to all those places.The FIELD OF LIGHTS canape and wine night was spoilt by lack of seating and those that had the seating were using it as a wine stand. I ASKED for a crate for my 76 yr old friend to sit whilst I SAT IN THE RED DIRT..
I've wanted to visit Ayers Rock for years and it didn't disappoint. I took a sunset camel ride and the Segway sunrise tour. Both were great. The Resort has a free shuttle bus that stops at all of the resort properties and staff housing. I was there in the summer and it was very, very hot! I did a star gazing tour one night and I've never seen so many stars. The sky was clear and the Milky Way was so distinct! The guide was very knowledgeable and had 2 telescopes set up for us to see different stars.
There is nothing like it. We went in February. It was 38-40 degrees and I have never seen so many bus. Fortunately, bug screens to cover your head are available and economical. This is an expensive holiday from accommodations to dining out but for an outstanding experience, it is worth a short visit.
Room with Terrace at 'Sails in the Desert' was outstanding, very comfortable with the bathroom/shower being luxurious. The breakfast was substantial, fresh and had variety. The reception was very courteous and helpful. The foyer was very well appointed and exuded 5-star style.
Loved that it was right next to the town square and easy access to being picked up at the hotel next to it for tours. The swimming pool was an amazing amenity to have access to in the heat! Room was clean and spacious!
The whole location and accomodation was excellent, front staff are an asset to the resort
It was billed as 5 star. More like 3 star at 5 star prices.
