Desert Gardens Hotel

Offering the only rooms with views of Uluru in Ayers Rock Resort, the 4.5 star Desert Gardens Hotel features welcoming rooms, locally inspired dining options and interactive arts experiences within an oasis of native gardens.

Accommodation options are diverse from deluxe rock view rooms to shady poolside rooms all located under a canopy of towering gum trees and garden beds dotted with native flowers.

Once you've satisfied the urge to explore the magic within Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, you will find guided and self-guided tours through Desert Gardens Hotel's substantial and authentic native gardens just outside your hotel door.

Learning about Australia's native fauna and traditional Indigenous bush foods will awaken an appetite to uncover Desert Gardens Hotel's restaurants and bars.

White Gums Restaurant helps prepare you for the day with an interactive buffet breakfast, while lunch served on Bunya Bar's terrace comes with a side of total relaxation. Argnuli Grill's Red Centre inspired a la carte grill menu provides a perfect ending to the day.

Desert Gardens Hotel's Mingkiri Gallery is home to both inspired arts experiences and one of a kind souvenirs to commemorate your unforgettable trip. Meet the Artist in Residence, learn about their craft and watch them create masterpieces. Speak with the gallery staff if you feel inspired to participate in an art class or workshop.

All of Ayers Rock Resort's luxuries and conveniences, including numerous lookouts, Red Ochre Spa and Town Square, are within easy walking distance or accessible via the free shuttle bus.
