Sails in the Desert

Indulgent escapes await at Sails in the Desert, where soaring white sails shade 228 lavishly appointed rooms and suites.

Cool off in the sparkling swimming pool lined with lush gumtrees , or linger over unique Australian flavours paired perfectly with your favourite regional wines at one of the resort's dining, lounge and bar options. Relax in the brasserie-style Ilkari Restaurant, unwind after a day of exploring with cocktails and Indigenous-inspired cuisine in Walpa Lobby Bar, or curl up in one of the daybeds and enjoy a casual lunch and beverage by the pool.

Immerse yourself in one-of-a-kind Indigenous art at the stunning Mulgara Gallery, or be lulled into complete relaxation with one of the Red Ochre Spa's sumptuous treatments.

Terrace Room

Woven into the fabric of the carpet, dotted along cushions and splashed across walls, the very real presence of the living cultural landscape outside is obvious in every facet of this luxurious room. Style and comfort from within flows onto the terrace that begs you to stretch out on the lounge under the towering white gums. At the end of the day, wind down from your adventures by relaxing on your lounger and gazing at the sparkling outback sky above.

Your stay in a Terrace Room includes a delicious buffet breakfast daily at Ilkari Restaurant - the perfect way to recharge before a day of exploring the outback.

Superior Room

Natural tones are complimented by Indigenous artwork, artifacts, and decorative pieces that surround you with the magic and mystery of loal Anangu creation stories.

Step out onto the balcony or patio and listen to the desert day transform to night before curling up in the pure opulence of one of Sails in the Desert's luxury beds.

Rooms are configured with either twin queen beds or one king bed. Interconnecting rooms, cots, rollaway beds and wheelchair accessible rooms are available on request and subject to availability.
