Sails in the Desert, Uluru

A five star oasis of modern luxury in the heart of the Australian Outback, Sails in the Desert provides the perfect contrast to the rugged and ancient beauty of Uluru and its surrounds. Boasting stunning accommodation and an architectural style that has been inspired by the indigenous cultures that continue to thrive in this fascinating part of the world; immersing yourself in both culture and luxury is incredibly easy here.


Sails in the Desert sits right on the doorstep of the UNESCO listed Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park, so you’re well placed to make the most of the area. Surrounded only by an endless expanse of parched landscapes and sat beneath a vast stretch of bright blue sky; this is a destination that has the power to leave you feeling awe-struck. In this day and age, that is a rare and special feeling. Reaching the resort is quick and painless. Flights from most of Australia’s main capital cities land at Ayers Rock Airport, and from there it’s just a 15 minute complimentary ride to your hotel.


You’ve got the choice between Superior and Terrace Rooms and the Deluxe Suites at Sails in the Desert, but rest assured, all are incredible. If you opt for a Terrace Room, you’ll be treated to a private terrace that’s been furnished with a day bed, perfect for that late afternoon nap beneath the gum trees. Sounds idyllic, right? The interior design is just as spectacular, blending perfectly with the natural landscapes that lie just beyond. Feeling indulgent? Then go for the Deluxe Suite. Just imagine, after a day of exploring the parched desert and watching the changing colors of Uluru, coming back to a room complete with a spa bath and multiple outdoor spaces from which to enjoy the views.


Sails in the Desert is so much more than just a luxurious hotel. It is a resort that goes the extra mile to ensure your stay is as immersive as possible. Encouraging its visitors to interact with and learn about the indigenous cultures that are so important to the area, the activity programmes and attention to detail in everything from the décor to the impeccable service will ensure your stay is as memorable as it could ever be. It’s totally family friendly too with bespoke experiences such as dot painting, bush cookery and astronomy designed to keep everyone entertained. If you’re planning a trip to Uluru, this is the only place you should consider.
