Excellent place in Alice Springs
I stayed in a studio which was very spacious and comfortable. It has all modern amenities. Communal areas are great! I specially liked the artwork in the rooms and outside. Overall fantastic place.

Can't ask for more.
We (5 of us) stayed in Vatu Sanctuary for (VC) 3 nights starting 6/7/2016. I was so busy enjoying myself in Ayers Rock that I have forgotten to call Colin to arranging the check-in. Colin couldn't call me as I didn't leave him a phone number. Colin, who has left me a e-mail that I didn't read, gracefully accepted my apologies and promptly orangised our check-in. He even left us a fruit basket! All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay in VC. The rooms were clean, aptly furnished. The air conditioners worked perfectly, not to mention the wifi, pool, BBQ, patio etc. What we enjoyed most is the kitchen where we have a lot of fun in preparing and cooking our dinners. We did try our very best to return the kitchen to its original sparking condition. Vatu Sanctuary is no doubt the best value for money accommodation we have experienced in the past 3 weeks in Australia.

Peace and beauty with all home comforts
The garden is miraculous and full of roses when we visited. The Pond had three gardens from which to choose, all different, all beautiful. The fountains were particularly welcome. The kitchen was a cook's delight with a supply of herbs, spices and olive oil as well as loose leaf tea and real coffee. Art work throughout the house ( much of it for sale) added a personal touch. Colin the manager is a gem and on hand to help with every situation.

A hidden oasis in Alice Springs
Could not fault the Vatu Sanctuary. Stayed five days in the studio, which was therapy in itself. The staff are thoughtful and helpful and the units have every single thing you could possibly need. And that's before you get to the amazing atmosphere, art, furnishings and convenience. Don't now if I should let others in on this secret!
