A terrace room at Ayers Rock Resort’s Sails in the Desert proved the perfect base from which to explore Northern Territory’s Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park.

Given visiting Uluru (Ayers Rock) has long been on my bucket list, I decided to see this most remarkable rock in style.

My luxurious room at Sails provided all those little extras to ensure a memorable stay. The terrace, complete with two lounge chairs and a table and chairs, provided the ideal retreat from the searing Northern Territory sun early morning and late afternoon.

As my room was close to the resort’s pool it was also the perfect place to rest between swims in the resort’s beautiful swimming pool.

Extremely helpful reception staff and a wonderful breakfast, which was included in the tariff, added to the experience.

How Did It Rate

The room had everything needed for an opulent stay including a very comfortable king size bed, two-seater table, couch and Indigenous inspired décor. The bathroom included a large bath. The room was extremely quiet.

The terrace. It was extremely spacious and the perfect place to spend a balmy evening.

The staff, especially those working at reception.  All my questions were answered quickly and efficiently with Edith a standout.

The buffet breakfast.  There was a wide array of hot and cold food on offer.

Sails in the Desert pool.

The large pool. It was a great place to cool off.

While an evening turn-down has welcome the failure of housekeeping to replace the facecloth and bath mat they took was a little annoying!

The lack of shade around the swimming pool.  While I had my terrace there was a lack of shade around the pool.
