Ayres Rock Resort’s Sails in the Desert Hotel Reopens after Renovation

A complete A$30 million ($31 million) renovation of Ayers Rock Resort's Sails in the Desert Hotel and the construction of a meetings and conference facility, the Uluru Meeting Place, has been unveiled by Australia's Minister for Tourism Martin Ferguson MP. Ayers Rock Resort's premium Sails in the Desert Hotel is now a flagship property with a complete re-fit of all 231 rooms in the hotel including two suites and 16 terrace rooms.

The Uluru Meeting Place, named in acknowledgement of the local Anangu people who have used the area as meeting place for thousands of years, is calling its new look a “modern indigenous design” with facilities that include a new ballroom seating 420 people that can also be sub-divided into smaller meeting spaces. There is also a second ballroom that seats over 300, which can also be split to create an integrated conference arena. When combined, these two rooms create a large area ideal for events and trade shows.
