Sails in the Desert

In the heart of Australia's Red Centre, Sails in the Desert hotel beautifully contrasts Uluru's raw natural beauty with a decidedly premium outback holiday experience. Re-opening on 01 August, Sails in the Desert will welcome guests back for an unforgettable holiday with a new look and feel, including elegantly redesigned guest rooms and suites, refreshed lobby and pool areas, and an elevated dining experience at Ilkari Restaurant.

Soaring white sails crown Ayers Rock Resort's Sails in the Desert hotel, shading 228 beautifully-appointed rooms and suites.

In a destination where one of the world's oldest cultures still thrives, the mystery, colour and wisdom of the local Anangu people is interwoven into every facet of Sails in the Desert's modern design.

This hotel features an expansive gumtree lined swimming pool and a diversity of modern dining, bar and lounge options. Relax and feast in the brasserie-style Ilkari Restaurant or let time tick by as you enjoy cocktails, music and Indigenous-inspired cuisine in the Walpa Lobby Bar, or curl up on one of the daybeds and enjoy a casual lunch and cocktail by the pool.

Sails in the Desert's stunning Mulgara Gallery takes you on an exploration through the unique styles and breathtaking stories of Indigenous art. Find each of your senses lulled into complete relaxation as you give in to one of the Red Ochre Spa's treatments.

Your stay includes an Indigenous Activities Program, complimentary return Ayers Rock Airport transfers, in-room WiFi and free use of the Resort shuttle bus service.
