About 15 kilometres outside of Uluru you will come across the Voyages Ayers Rock Resort.

Here you have the option to stay in accommodation that will suit every budget, from 2 to 5-star hotels for you to choose from. It’s a great base to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta from and is really the only accommodation available in Yulara. Facilities at the resort are open to guests staying in the campsites, cabins or hotel and feature over 65 tours, restaurants, shops, a supermarket and a petrol station. Amenities on the site also include a BBQ, self-serving laundry, outdoor kitchen and playground for the kids.

  • Sails In The Desert

    This premier 5-star hotel combines the ultimate luxurious getaway with the beauty of the outback. They do this by incorporating the nature that surrounds the hotel in the design work, such as the swimming pool lined with gum trees and the Australian inspired menus at their dining options. The hotel also offers spa treatments at the tranquil Red Ochre Spa, as well as the Mulgara Galley which showcases fine Indigenous art.

  • Desert Gardens Hotel

    This 4-and-a-half-star hotel is special as it’s the only one of its kind to offer views of Uluru from the entire Ayers Rock Resort. Here you will find a total of 218 rooms lovingly paired with designs taken straight from the outback and a restaurant that showcases brilliant native flavours and cooking techniques.  Take a stroll in the gardens that surround the resort with traditional greenery that flows along the property.

  • The Lost Camel

    This funky hotel is in the heart of the resort and just a quick 20 minutes away from the base of Uluru. Each room is bright and vibrant, with the design in touch with your surroundings as well as private bathroom facilities. A large king bed sits in the middle of each room however this can be converted into two separate single beds if need be. The Lost Camel is the most contemporary of the hotels on offer. 

  • Outback Pioneer Lodge

    For those with a budget, the Outback Pioneer Lodge offers rooms with or without bathrooms in a friendly hostel setting.
