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).

Located centrally to all resort and touring facilities, you can relax in the comfort of your own private balcony or courtyard, or unwind in the hotel's pool, sipping cocktails from the Bunya bar.


Offering the only rooms with views of Uluru in Ayers Rock Resort, the 4.5 star Desert Gardens Hotel features welcoming rooms, locally inspired dining options and interactive arts experiences within an oasis of native gardens.

Accommodation options are diverse from deluxe rock view rooms to shady poolside rooms all located under a canopy of towering gum trees and garden beds dotted with native flowers.

Once you've satisfied the urge to explore the magic within Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, you will find guided and self-guided tours through Desert Gardens Hotel's substantial and authentic native gardens just outside your hotel door.

Learning about Australia's native fauna and traditional Indigenous bush foods will awaken an appetite to uncover Desert Gardens Hotel's restaurants and bars.

White Gums Restaurant helps prepare you for the day with an interactive buffet breakfast, while lunch served on Bunya Bar's terrace comes with a side of total relaxation. Argnuli Grill's Red Centre inspired a la carte grill menu provides a perfect ending to the day.

Google Reviews

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. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   It's like an oasis in the desert. There is this huge outback with nearly no infrastructure and then you reach the desert garden resort. The hotel is just great and you got everything you need there. The rooms are very clean and new. You got a pool, free WiFi and even washing machines for your dirty clothes. That was one of the best hotels at our trip.

Review:   Only stayed here for one night. Reception can get very busy at times as there are lots of arrivals and departures. The staff were all very pleasant and efficient. Rooms were very comfortable, clean and air conditioned with tv as well as coffee making facilities. Pleasant pool area and gardens. Also small craft/souvenir shops on site. Large bar/restaurant and breakfast was AMAZING with choice of absolutely anything that you may want.

Review:   Overall this was a good place to stay: the front desk staff was very helpful, the room is clean, housekeeping was quick and did a good job cleaning the room, and have all the places to stay at the resort it had the best and most convenient pickup and drop off for tours, in my opinion. However the resort calls it a 4 Star resort and it doesn't quite seem up to this level. Things are a little maze-like throughout the entire resort and there is a significant lack of easy to identify signs guiding you where to go. Restaurants have odd and different opening and closing times and there is no central or easy to locate place that displays these times, such as in the hotel lobby. Being the desert, the area is obviously very hot and the pool lacks significant areas of shade. We tried to go in the middle of the day and the few shaded spots are already taken and it was way too hot to stay in the sun for more than 30 minutes or so. This is a very expensive place to stay and we just expect it to be a bit nicer and have a bit more to bring it to the 4 Star level. For the price you pay it fell overpriced. The best part of this place would have to be the people though, they are extremely helpful and will spend the time needed to answer your questions, to book a tour, or to understand what to do during the day.

Review:   Super amazing view to rock from room. Reasonably priced when remote location is taken into account. Breakfast staff are good as are reception. Rooms are roomy and upmarket. Will definitely return.

Review:   We were looking forward to coming to see Uluru but my husband had seen some bad reviews about the hotel so we were a little worried. I don't know what these people were saying what a fantastic hotel. All the staff are friendly and helpful, our room was huge and great bathroom. We ate in their restaurant on our last night where the food was delicious and the service first class. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and I would defiantly stay here again.
