How to Get There
The Sails is part of the overall complex of hotels around Uluru. Really good hotel with an excellent pool. friendly service ( call out for Patrick and Christine the servers at the bar) great food and lovely accommodation. The hotel has free parking at the front and is laid out in blocks. There is a regular bus shuttle which takes you around the resort if you haven't got your own transport or want to have a drink in one of the other resort bars
Sails in the Desert is a luxury hotel which caters for every aspect of one's trip to Uluru. The front desk staff are very helpful and courteous. As we only had a couple of nights, the staff at the front desk recommended the tours we could take that would leave a lasting impression on us.
There are a lot of free activities that one can participate in at the resort during the day. We learnt a lot about the aboriginal culture. LeRoy the presenter was excellent. His knowledge intermingled with his humour made the presentations very entertaining.
Make sure to eat breakfast or lunch at the Kulata Academy Cafe to support the indegenous trainees on the road to success.
We had 4 nights at Sails and the staff are very friendly, check in was easy and they were very accommodating with all our tours and changes we made. The Breakfast was fantastic, everything you needed, however the 5 star restaurant is located at one of their other resorts which is just a short walk down the road, sails offers a buffet for dinner only. The rooms are dated and need a refurbish but however the linen and towels where lovely. The pool area is good and they have lovely round daybeds to lay in but some umbrellas would be good as its so hot you cannot stay out there very long.
After months of reviewing price researching I made my decision to travel to the Northern Territory. I chose Outback Spirit as my tour company as I had heard of their attention to detail comfortable accomodation and excellent tour guides. I was not disappointed. My tour started in Alice Springs and as I always do I booked my accommodation for the night before at the same resort that the tour was to leave from the next day. The resort Mercure at Alice Springs was a easy five minute walk from the town across the Todd River Bridge. The resort was exceptional food wonderful staff friendly and approachable. After the rest of the tour group arrived the next day we travelled to Kings Canyon staying at the Kings Canyon resort and enjoyed Two nights staying in a cabin style rooms. Once again good comfortable accommodation and a buffet style of eating - From here we traveled on to Uluru staying at The Sails resort. A fantastic last 2 days was one of the many highlights experienced. The accommodation was superior. Food buffet was 5star the room clean modern roomy and air conditioning was very welcome. The staff were helpful friendly and nothing a was a problem to them. Everyone should visit Uluru at some stage what a spiritual experience this wonder if the world is! Make sure you have a guided tour with an experienced guide as it makes so much of a difference to hear the stories and “dreaming “ tales. The rock as we all know is big but actually visiting it mind blowing and the history fascinating. I traveled solo but met other like minded wonderful people travelling solo. Our guides Magida and Colman were knowledgeable entertaining and fun - Just do it !! you won’t regret the journey.
We recently spent 3 nights at Sails in the Desert in 42 degrees heat and found it to be everything it claims it is. What a lovely experience. Airport transfer was quick and easy, check in was great and it was lovely to be met at the entrance by very welcoming staff. The decor of the hotel was lovely. Stayed in a superior room overlooking the pool with a king bed which I had requested and my request was granted. Could not fault the room, it was very clean, cool and comfortable with lots of space. The pool was very refreshing with lots of chairs which could easily be moved to follow the shade. I had booked a number of tours whilst taking into consideration the heat of the day. The first night was spent dining out in the desert at the Sounds of Silence dinner and field of light tour , this is advertised as a once in a lifetime experience and it is. What a wonderful experience. We also booked the Desert Awakenings Tour, I cannot speak highly enough of this tour, with Toby as our tour guide. I had strong reservations about booking this tour compared to other sunrise tours to Ulura, the reason being that it is not listed separately on TripAdvisor so I could not read any of the reviews. I decided to take the chance and I am so glad we did. This tour was the highlight of our trip. Toby was an excellent, knowledgeable tour guide, the egg and bacon rolls and damper was delicious, the view of the sunrise from a secluded position was spectacular, the short walk and drive around the base of Ulura was special and we were back at our accommodation before the heat of the day. I would highly recommend this tour and would like to see it as a tour on TripAdvisor so other people do not miss out on another once in a lifetime experience.
