Desert Gardens Hotel

Offering the only rooms with views of Uluru in Ayers Rock Resort, 4.5 star Desert Gardens Hotel offers 218 elegant guestrooms within an oasis of native gardens.

Accommodation options are diverse from deluxe rock view rooms to shady poolside rooms all located under a canopy of towering gum trees and garden beds dotted with native shrubs and flowers.

Taking its name from the Pitjantjatjara word for desert quandong, Mangata Bistro & Bar serves a delicious buffet breakfast and, for lunch and dinner, a diverse range of light meals showcasing the finest Australian produce with highlights of native Australian bush tucker flavours throughout. The contemporary indoor area flows seamlessly to an outdoor terrace, surrounded by the native greens of the iconic gardens of the hotel.

Arnguli Grill & Restaurant, Ayers Rock Resort’s premier à la carte dining location, takes its name from the Pitjantjatjara word for bush plum. Located in the shadows of the hotel’s ghost gums, overlooking the central pool and garden, the restaurant offers quality Australian produce featuring native Indigenous flavours. Open daily for dinner, Arnguli’s outback-inspired interiors feature distinctive Indigenous artefacts and a dramatic patterned carpet inspired by local vegetation.

Once you've satisfied the urges to explore the magic within Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, you will find free guided walks through Desert Gardens Hotel's substantial and authentic native gardens just outside your hotel door.

All of Ayers Rock Resort's luxuries and conveniences, including numerous lookouts, the beautiful Red Ochre Spa and the shops, tour & info centre and café’s located at the Resort Town Square, are within easy walking distance or accessible via the free shuttle bus.

        Mani Mani Indigenous Cultural Theatre

        Mani-Mani Theatre Company’s unique sound, lighting, 3D effects and performance take you on a visually captivating experience transporting you to the ancient lands of Central Australia where the story of Walawuru, Kakalyalya & Kaanka unravels. The symbolic story of Walawuru, Kakalyalya & Kaanka is a tale of love, jealousy and greed. Expressed through ‘Mani-Mani’, the local art form of storytelling, this contemporary Indigenous performance brings to life the ancient ancestral beings Walawuru the Wedge-Tailed Eagle and his two wives; Kaanka the black crow and Kakalyalya the white cockatoo. Walawuru is happy with his two wives but little does he know Kaanka is evil and very jealous of the kind and caring Kakalyalya. The word ‘Mani-Mani’ comes from the Yankunytjatjara & Pitjantjatjara language of the Anangu people of Central Australia. Anangu people would often tell stories by drawing symbols in the sand using a stick taken from a branch of the Mani-Mani tree. The stories were often about ancestors, real events in history and the Tjukurpa creation time. Tour duration: approx. 40 minutes. Days and times: Wednesday to Sunday, 11am and 2pm Location: Arkani Theatre
