Regardless of where you stay while you're at Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, from the sanctuary of one of the four hotels, or the great outdoors and open spaces 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).

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.

Desert Gardens Hotel's Mingkiri Gallery is home to both inspired arts experiences and one of a kind souvenirs to commemorate your unforgettable trip. Meet the Artist in Residence, learn about their craft and watch them create masterpieces. Speak with the gallery staff if you feel inspired to participate in an art class or workshop.

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:   The rooms are fantastic with great desert views and grass for the kids to play in. The restaurants are plentiful and priced accordingly to the desolation surrounding such a remote hotel. The service is amazing and the staff outgoing to assist in all aspects of your stay. The apartments are two story with only stair access to the upper level. The selection for alcohol is also plentiful and able to satisfy most, if not all, partakers. Roughly twenty to thirty kilometers from Uluru and a forty minute drive to Kata Tjuta. The resort contains all the facilities you could need, including a convenience store and petrol station.

Review:   Not worth the time or the money. They gouge you at every opportunity. Disorganized. Hot as hell. A program was supposed to start at 11 AM. We waited until 11:30, as we were leaving, the attendant showed up, said that he couldn't find the keys to the venue. We heard that it was officially cancelled @ 12 noon. The restaurant that we ate at cost $56 for a rubber chicken sandwich and a tough 100 gram (3 oz) steak. It was so tough to cut, and they didn't even have a sharp knife. On a positive note the room, when it was finally ready was clean with a clean good sized bathroom.

Review:   Nice and very big resort. Modern and comfortable room. Clean. Quite expensive but you have good quality. Parking available near the reception. Pay attention that some rooms are upstairs with no lift.

Review:   Now this is a desert hotel that’s fits in environmentally, so some local wild life birds insects even sand might encroach on this wonderful hotel. We just love scenes from each window and footpath throughout the complex. In our opinion this hotel was not designed to be a 5 star carbuncle on the desert it is what it is comfortable, clean, nice gardens with good service.

Review:   Disappointed with welcome when arrived. No hello, welcome or smile. Appreciate that all guests arrive at the small time, which puts pressure on the team. But a simple smile goes a long way. Some great staff, and some really poor ones. Our party of 6 all remarked it was the most disappointing service of a 3 week trip. I was born in the Territory, and it doesn't reflect the warmth and genuine hospitality of the place.
