Type: Hotel

Grade: Standard

Introduction

Magnificent ghost gums and flowering native shrubs are the setting for this 218 room hotel. It's only a short stroll to numerous lookouts, where you can view what is arguably Australia's best sunset, with the spectacular play of colours across the face of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the surrounding desert. But once the sun has set, its time to indulge in an evening cocktail, or savour the flame-grilled menu at the hotel's bar.

Each of the 218 rooms has a TV, minibar and bathrobes provided as well as a balcony or veranda. The Deluxe Rock View Rooms are worth the price, offering private panoramic views of Uluru from the veranda. But a stay in the Desert Gardens Hotel is more than just the monument which is Uluru and a range of complimentary Indigenous Activities are available on site. These include guided garden walks, Indigenous art classes for kids, interactive didgeridoo playing, spear & boomerang throwing, wakagetti cultural dancers (guest participation is welcomed) and 'bush yarns', where a local Indigenous storyteller captivates audiences with local myths and tales.
