Lonely Planet review
Top of the CP price tree, the Desert Cave brings a much-needed shot of desert luxury − plus a beaut pool, a daytime cafe, airport transfers and the excellent Umberto's restaurant. Staff are supercourteous and there are tours on offer. Above-ground rooms also available (huge, but there are more soulful places to stay in town).
Our independent authors have visited Desert Cave Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Coober Pedy.
