Lonely Planet review
This hotel has a relaxed island vibe with its shady palms, cascading bougainvillea and Indonesian-style villas. The rooms – which have cathedral ceilings, kitchenette, tiny bathroom, TV and private balcony are rather dated, though the island swimming pool is a big hit with kids.
Our independent authors have visited Desert Palms Resort and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Alice Springs.
Description provided by property
An oasis in the outback, the Desert Palms is a 3.5 star outback property offering individual studio villa accommodation, set around a crystal clear free-form pool with island and waterfall surrounded by tropical gardens.
All villas are air-conditioned and include bougainvillea-covered verandahs, private en-suites and kitchenette facilities. The hotel offers outstanding value for the visitor wanting comfort at an affordable price.
We're located in the main accommodation centre of Alice Springs on the banks of the Todd River, close to town, Lasseters Casino - Alice Springs entertainment hot spot, the Convention Centre, and the Alice Springs Golf Club is our backyard.
Some of the best restaurants in Alice Springs are within meters of the Desert Palms. These include the Golf Course Club House, Hanumans (Indian/Thai) and Balloons Bistro at the Double Tree by Hilton and the four restaurants at Lasseter's Casino, including the Juicy Rump.
We offer a small kiosk/shop on-site where food items and liquor can be purchased, a guest laundry, BBQ area, secure gated off street parking directly outside each villa, and free Wifi in villa and throughout the property.
Desert Palms offers a calm, peaceful environment, which creates a sense of relief for the weary traveller. After a hectic day of travelling by road or air take pleasure in watching the world go by on the privacy of your own private balcony surrounded by palms trees while watching the spectacular sunsets over the MacDonald Ranges.
