Overview - Voyages Sails in the Desert. Copyright Voyages Sails in the Desert.

Named after the soaring white sails that crown its roof, this is Voyages Ayers Rock Resort's premium hotel. The interior decor focuses on Aboriginal heritage and culture, with a gallery in the lobby and significant artworks featured throughout the public areas and in the private rooms.

Slip into comfort right in the heart of the central Australian outback at Voyages Sails in the Desert Hotel. Relax in beautifully appointed rooms, enjoy a cocktail in the lovely grounds, or sit back and relax under the magnificent white sails.

The Hotel also features the acclaimed Mulgara Gallery, the lively, buffet-style Winkiku Restaurant, tapas-style cuisine by the pool at Rockpool (seasonal), and the award winning signature restaurant of Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, Kuniya Restaurant.

Regardless of where you stay while you're at Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, from the sanctuary of one of the five hotels, or the intimacy of Voyages Ayers Rock Resort Campground, you can experience the beauty of the living cultural landscape of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, in Australia's Northern Territory.

With over 65 tours, local activities and attractions within the Resort and the Uluru (Ayers Rock) - Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) National Park, your days will be action-packed. Ride a camel across the desert dunes. Hop on a Harley, or embark on a base walk of Uluru (Ayers Rock).

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   Excellent hotel with well-trained and friendly staff. Rooms are large, the food is excellent. The breakfast buffet ticks all the boxes. Dinner buffet seemed pricey at first but is worth the money as every single dish was delicious. Parking was available for free. We were granted a late checkout as our flight didn't leave until 2pm. Highly recommended as a base for anybody keen to explore Uluru and surrounds.

Review:   The rooms are large and comfortable, with some nice nods to the culture of the area in the decor. Decent fridge so you can keep some snacks there, comfy beds and all the toiletries you need for a short stay. Buffet breakfast was nice, and worth getting with your room. If you have a buffet breakfast booked but will be away for it at a sunrise viewing, the hotel will do you a free breakfast takeaway pack (ask the day before before 7pm, pick up on the morning). We traveled with kids, and the hotel was good with them but the one issue that did occur was with the pool (which has a large deeper pool and two smaller toddler pools) - the resort is called Sails for the large amount of shadesails there, but there is none over the pool area so with the high UV the pool is basically unusable in the middle of the day when you are most likely to be in the hotel.

Review:   Great pool! Lovely staff. Great cocktails. What more could you ask for really? You will pay like crazy for pretty much everything though.

Review:   Food was exceptional at Illuka restaurant. The 5 star rating is not accurate at all as the rooms were like a cheap motel in a pub, nothing but a jug to use no toaster. If it were not for the beautiful surroundings I would have complained. Staff were really great and helpful. You can clearly see there are major inequalities between the locals and the hotels as I was told by one local lady it appears the hotel side of the rock is what dreams are made of and the other side is utter poverty.

Review:   Really enjoyed our time at Sails. The rooms were nice with plenty of space. The pool area was nice but needs more shade, even some umbrellas would help. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the food good. The whole organisation at this resort is well setup and organised.
