Welcome to the Desert Gardens Hotel – a magnificent sanctuary surrounded by towering ghost gums and flowering native shrubs among the red dunes. During your time at the Desert Garden Ayers Rock Resort, relax in the comfort of your own private balcony or courtyard, or unwind in the hotel’s pool, sipping cocktails from the Bunya bar.

It’s only a short stroll to the Desert Gardens Hotel’s numerous lookouts, where you can view what is arguably Australia’s best sunset, with the spectacular play of colours across the face of Uluru and the surrounding desert. Once the sun has set, dine at Arnguli Grill and savour an a la carte flame grilled menu.
