Amazing experience of a lifetime

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

pujachan TripAdvisor review

Our stay at the Sails in the Desert was an amazing experience. We went as a couple and were blown away by the guest experience, hospitality and friendliness of all staff and the quality of food at the hotel and other related establishments. The Tours were breath-taking - I would highly recommend the WINTJIRI WIRU SUNSET DINNER and the Field of Light - star pass or general admission. Uluru of course is majestic and you can choose the walking tour, desert awakenings tour or the Segway or cycling tour depending on your mood and fitness level. A Beautiful experience in totality.

Travelgypsyisme TripAdvisor review

This is rated the best hotel in Yulara. It is very spread out but the rooms are like a cool oasis. Very spacious and extremely comfortable. Just make sure you leave the doors locked and lock all food away as field mouse can get inside.

Thank you for your positive feedback and tips for keeping out unwanted guests!

Good enough for a 3 night break.

UK-Northants-Family TripAdvisor review

We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel and room were reasonably clean and comfortable. The Buffet evening meal was excellent as was the breakfast. Don't know why, but unlike other hotels,other than check in we had almost no interaction with staff and the hotel itself had quite a 'bland' functional feel to it. Staff communication/training was very poor, we almost missed a couple of trips because of staff giving wrong information. Ok for 3 nights but no more.

We are very sorry to hear that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. We take all feedback seriously and will be investigating the concerns you have raised. We hope you were still able to enjoy your stay with us at Ayers Rock Resort.

Nice but expensive

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

_j83davies TripAdvisor review

Had a lovely stay here for 2 nights when going on a day tour to Uluru. Lovely hotel, nice, spacious & comfortable rooms. We enjoyed the trip, staff were helpful and friendly, can’t ask for much more Food in the hotel is expensive, we had the buffet style evening meal & breakfast and although it was very good it is a bit pricey with little competition in the area.

Thank you for your feedback! We are pleased to hear you had a great time exploring all that the local area has to offer.
