Loved everything about Uluru and Sails!

Cannot wait to go back!


A very memorable holiday

Voyages Sails in the Desert Hotel is the perfect holiday accommodation when visiting Uluru. The premises are well maintained and clean and the ambience is relaxed and soothing, especially after a full day of strenuous outdoor excursion. The restaurant is well stocked for choice, reasonably priced, the food is good and the staff is professional, courteous and efficient.
Our room was spacious, clean and well maintained. The attached bathroom was clean, but not sufficiently ventilated.
Overall, our stay at Voyages Sails in the Desert Hotel was a very pleasant experience and we do recommend this hotel, especially for families and senior travellers/tourists.


Sails Resort

We had a fabulous time. Sails was really nice.
