We spent two nights at the hotel and I cannot fault the service provided by the staff. We were greeted with open arms and when we were unsure of what sunrise tour to do during our stay the staff were more than happy to point us in the right direction. Rooms were also extremely clean. I would strongly recommended others... More

All accommodation in Yulara is operated by the same company, but covers a wide range of budgets. Sails in the Desert is the "top-end" of the range -- great service, a welcome drink on arrival, quality food, well-maintained grounds and good rooms. The food is expensive as expected for this remote location, but the restaurants are excellent. The dinner had... More

Everything is more expensive in the Outback, be prepared! While they consider this to be a five star hotel, it wouldn't be anywhere else. Considering the other options in the Outback, this rating makes sense! The hotel is very nice, the rooms are modern and well kept. The pool area leaves something to be desired, but with the heat, it's... More

The food here was great! The room was clean and close to a Ayers Rock. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I was warned that the wi-fi would be slow, but it was super fast. This place got the job done for the location.

Love almost everything about this hotel, from the indigenous art gallery at the spacious foyer, the court yard with a pool, the spacious and clean room, the big comfortable bed, the spacious room to the restaurant and most importantly the friendly staff. The young guys outside the hotel greeting the guests and offering to help with your luggage are all... More

We had a great stay here. Having a nice pool and room with a terrace with comfortable loungers made for a great way to wind down after a day of exploring. We could also sit out an watch the stars at night. What made our stay extra special was the kindness we received from Trey and Jyoti at the front... More

What a fabulous 4 days we spent at The Sails. Large beautiful rooms with massive beds and tons of pillows. Like sleeping on clouds. We visited The Sails in January with a relative from the UK and hired a car to visit Uluru, The Olgas and Kings Canyon. All trips were a dream come true. The service by the hotel... More
