EXCLUSIVE: Ayers Rock Resort Reveals Plans for Major Spa

Voyages Hotels & Resorts will be adding a full-service spa to its Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, a unique resort offering a range of accommodations for up to 3,000 guests in a variety of options, ranging from five-star hotels to a resort campground, revealed Chris Tallent, CEO of Voyages Hotels & Resorts, and Nicholas Baker, executive general manager for the Sydney, Australia-based company, to Travel Agent on their recent swing through Los Angeles. The spa will be in its premier hotel, the Sails in the Desert Hotel. The 500-square-foot spa is targeted for a March 2008 opening and is expected to double in size in the future. Look for treatments featuring indigenous products. Baker acknowledged that next month's Australia Tourism Exchange will be welcoming substantial numbers of travel agents for the first time, primarily graduates of the Aussie Specialist program. Baker invited visiting agents to contact Voyages Hotels & Resorts to arrange visits and overnight stays at special rates. In addition to Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, the company has 12 other resorts throughout Australia. Voyages Hotels & Resorts is a firm believer in having agents experience their properties firsthand.
