Sails in the Desert – 5 Star Luxury Hotel for Marathoners

In the heart of Australia’s Red Centre, Sails in the Desert hotel beautifully contrasts Uluru’s raw natural beauty with a decidedly luxurious outback holiday experience.

Soaring white sails crown Ayers Rock Resort’s Sails in the Desert hotel, shading 228 luxury five star 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. More than luxury accommodation, Sails in the Desert hotel is a destination of exploration and indulgence.

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.

Sails in the Desert hotel features an expansive gumtree lined swimming pool and a diversity of modern dining, bar and lounge options. Awaken your taste buds with Mayu’s signature à la carte dining experience, relax and feast in the brasserie-style Ilkari Restaurant or let time tick by as you enjoy cocktails, music and culinary temptations in the Walpa Lobby Bar.

There are three levels of accommodation for you to choose from at Sails in the Desert

Deluxe Suite

Featuring a separate living area, spacious bedroom and multiple balconies, the Deluxe Suite offers a modern neutral palette accented by colours and textures from Anangu creation stories and the desert landscape outside. Luxurious features such a spa bath and, of course, Sails in the Desert’s aptly named ‘Ahh’ Bed, are complimented by local Indigenous artwork and artefacts.

Terrace Room

Woven into the fabric of the carpet, dotted along cushions and splashed across walls the very real presence of the living cultural landscape outside is obvious in every facet of this luxurious room. Style and comfort from within flows onto the terrace that begs you to curl up on the day bed or stretch out on the lounge under the towering white gums.

Superior Room

Natural tones are complemented by Indigenous artwork, artefacts and decorative pieces that surround you with the magic and mystery of local Anangu creation stories. Step out onto the balcony, terrace or verandah and listen to the desert day transform to night before curling up in the pure luxury of one of Sails in the Desert’s ‘Ahh’ Beds.
