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:   Visited Illkari for the dinner buffet. It was a typical buffet except for one station where you would request made to order food that they brought to your table. The made to order food was really good. The normal buffet good was okay. The desserts were not bad. Better than your typical buffet where the cakes are usually dry. They also had ice cream and a chocolate fountain. Overall, the food was decent but the price of admission is pretty steep at $75 a person, no drinks included.

Review:   Found it generally clean and tidy. For the location was not too expensive although breakfast at 28 dollars is a bit rich. Starting to show its age and maintenance is not being kept up. Helpful staff and liked the free activities. Also liked the viewing platform within the resort.

Review:   Sails in the desert seems like the jewel in the crown in Yulara. The hotel is nice, rooms are comfortable and the staff are very nice. Hotel is large and has the usual amenities The Ilkari Restaurant is a buffet with a live cooking station to order as well. The food is beautiful and I highly recommend the lamb cutlets from the cooking station and when its available the Adobe pork belly. Need to book.
