Sails in the Desert at Ayers Rock Resort is absolutely first class. Great accommodation, food is fantastic and so are the staff. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Perfectly located and all tours and activities arranged at the front desk with no fuss. Went for 3 nights with my daughter, we'd been talking of doing it for 15 years since she was little. Finally got around to it and glad we did. A must for all Australians to see this iconic and unique region.”TripAdvisor
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Sails, wonderful service, friendly staff and delicious food. Our room was very nice, very comfy beds, which is a plus! Lovely and clean and pleasant outlook. We would love to go again but next time in June/July...we had a wonderful sound of silence experience, I'd say that was the best.”TripAdvisor
Stayed here for 2 nights on a trip around Australia, had a great experience from start to finish. Room was really spacious and well laid out, service from staff exceptional and facilities justify the grading. Used the hotel restaurant for one dinner (pretty good and a wide range of food on offer) and breakfast (really good) We did the 'Sounds of Silence' experience on the first evening, which was really good and 'Dawn Awakenings' on the second morning, which was equally worthwhile. Great courtesy facilities to and from the Airport…”TripAdvisor
