    The pool is warmed by the sun, at least that’s what it felt like. But after a day walking around the rock or the outback. It was a welcome way to cool down.

    Yes in the section I was in "sails in the desert" they did. there are other accommodation options at Ayers Rock Resort. Perhaps Emu walk apartments may have separate ones.

    Hallo Hotel management. Reading Rainer S review we just wonder how the service in your Hotel can be so substandard, considering you charge more than twice the amount of established Hotels, like the Four Seasons in Sydney for instance. Having spend many years in management training and consultancy, my findings often go right to the top, often revealing a bad attitude towards the staff below, which in return present themselves in a no care, stuff them attitude. Could that be the case in your establishment? If so, please consider a revamp of the structure in place, Uluru being a world know tourist destination should be a showcase of this country and obviously you are failing badly in that department. Distance has never been an issue in five star accommodation, so there's no excuse on your behalf, considering the Gold mine this resort must surely be.
