Ayers Rock Resort

3-Day Ultimate Weekend Away

If you're planning a romantic getaway or a weekend escape, but are looking for something inspiring and relaxing, then spend the weekend discovering Australia's heart. Dine under a canopy of stars, climb on the back of a camel and discover the rugged outback and enjoy some pampering outback style at the Red Ochre Spa.

DAY 1

  • Fly into Ayers Rock Airport and take the 10-minute courtesy transfer to your hotel.
  • After settling into your hotel, enjoy a cool drink at the Walpa Lobby Bar located at Sails in the Desert hotel
  • Visit the Red Ochre Spa to book your treatments in advance. Combining nature's intelligence and the power of touch, our therapies mirror the balanced beauty of Uluru - the essence of Australia. The Spa has been designed with pampering and total indulgence in mind - a sanctuary where guests exchange stressed or weary states for tranquility and embrace treatments that renew energies or evoke delicious relaxation.
  • One hour before sunset, you'll be collected from your hotel, and taken to a secluded sand dune in the desert. As a didgeridoo player weaves his magic enjoy a welcome drink and a selection of outback-style canaps. As the sun sets, feast on a BBQ buffet of authentic Australian delicacies. Attention then turns to some of the world's best stargazing, as our star talker takes you on a tour of the spectacular southern night sky

DAY 2

  • Wake early and join the Desert Awakenings tour. Before sunrise travel by bus into the outback, where a light breakfast is served as the sun rises over Uluru. The tour provides an introduction to the natural and cultural landscapes of this remarkable region and includes a visit to Mutitjulu waterhole in the shadow of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and stops off at the Cultural Centre
  • Take an afternoon helicopter ride for a picturesque view of the Red Centre. Discover the enormity of the region with views over both Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)
  • Visit the National Park Cultural Centre and get an introduction to Anangu art, Anangu way of life, history and languages
  • For your last evening in the Red Centre, visit Sails in the Desert hotel's premier dining experience, Mayu. Taking the traditional and ancient Pitjantjatjara name for flavour, Mayu serves up a truly innovative and modern a la carte menu. The finest ingredients are transformed into inspired dishes before being served with your choice of Australia's foremost wines.

DAY 3

  • Arise to a scrumptious and personalised breakfast experience with the international menu at Ilkari Restaurant, located at Sails in the Desert.
