About

#3 of 4 hotels in Yulara
Voyages Desert Gardens Hotel is a superior hotel at Voyages Ayers Rock Resort. Magnificent ghost gums and flowering native shrubs are the setting for this hotel. Voyages Desert Gardens Hotel is centrally located to all resort and touring facilities and offers a range of accommodation, from shaded poolside rooms to deluxe rooms overlooking the desert.You can 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 Resort'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.

Staff excellent, location and view fabulous. It is however very sad to see the ‘bounce’ of the resort affected by the lack of visitors. We had an issue with our room on arrival and I called reception who fixed us up with another room within 20 minutes. They couldn’t have helped faster! We had a rock view room with a little balcony where we could watch sunrise and sunset. You have to recognise you are paying for the location, not the fancy bits of a hotel!

Unfortunately with low visitor numbers this hotel serves no breakfasts and the grill room has been shut for 12 months You can get a light breakfast in the Town Centre but that means a walk because the resort shuttle only starts operating at 10.30 The tour desk is not functioning either The cafe opens at 11.00 - 9.00 pm and we had a couple of nice meals there Not much other places to eat except Sails in the Desert hotel - very nice but $45 pp for breakfast is steep Staff are great very polite and helpful

After going through the long lines after arriving at Yulara airport because of covid it was good to be met by friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were well presented and clean and spacious. Would recommend this as a great place to stay.

We stayed at this resort for 3 nights. Fantastic hotel we were completely spoilt. The room was beautiful. Very clean and everything you need was there. They serviced your room everyday. The bistro was great and the food was lovely. The price was reasonable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel if you want to be spoilt

Thank you to everyone at Desert Gardens. The friendliest, most helpful, knowledgeable staff who made the 6 night stay a dream and seamless. Hotel was so conveniently located and the shuttle service between all hotels at Ayers Rock Resort is brilliant. The room was lovely - very lucky to be upgraded. The only small issue was there was no TV reception and had to pay for WIFI to stream news and entertainment. But overall, highly recommend the hotel as a 3 star hotel. Hang in there everyone during tough Covid times!!
