Sails in the Desert

In Australia's Red Centre, the five star Sails in the Desert hotel beautifully contrasts Uluru's raw natural beauty with a decidedly luxurious outback holiday experience.

Against a canvas of neutral tones and textures, the mystery, colour and wisdom of the local Anangu people is interwoven into every facet of Sails in the Desert's modern design.

Discover the passion behind Aboriginal art at Sails in the Desert's Mulgara Gallery. Then be lulled into complete relaxation by one of the Red Ochre Spa's package treatments.

Sails in the Desert hotel features an expansive gumtree lined heated swimming pool and a diversity of modern dining, bar and lounge options. Awaken taste buds with Mayu's signature dining experience, relax and feast in the brasserie-style Ilkari Restaurant or let time tick by enjoying cocktails, music and culinary temptations in the Walpa Lobby Bar.
