Lonely Planet review
One of Yulara's originals, the standard rooms, particularly the bathrooms, are looking dated but, at the time of research, a major renovation was planned for the near future. Currently the spacious deluxe rooms are the best option, featuring balconies with desert or Uluru views. A big buffet breakfast is served in the restaurant and there's a pleasant pool area shaded with gums.
Our independent authors have visited Desert Gardens Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort).
