We purchased a 3 night package through groupon and it was very good value. The tents are well setup with a large bed and good sized bathroom. There is 2 indoor and 2 outdoor seats. You get a nice verandah area so you can sit outside and enjoy the views plus you get visits from the wildlife in the morning and evening. Its nice and peaceful and a very beautiful outlook with easy access to the walking trails and lots of wildlife. The resort is run by a local aboriginal group which is a good initative to employ locals. It would be good to see some improvements in the service over time though as there are some things lacking for a resort that wants to offer a very good experience.
"Acceptable, but could be better"
We had a two night Luxury Escapes Package staying in the tents. The package includes a short flight and a 4 wheel drive tour. The package is highly recommended, if you have ever wished to visit Wilpena Pound and the Flinders Ranges. The area is an outstanding physical location. The tents are excellent, but the rest of the Wilpena Pound Resort requires some general improvement. The Resort is poorly maintained and is expensive for the style of accommodation and service. The current owners have owned the property for over 8 years and it looks like it has had little TLC for this entire time. Some staff were good, indeed outstanding but the majority looked like they wished they were someplace else. The evening meals were acceptable and the wine and beer prices OK. The shop only had limited food supplies and it would be difficult to self cater if you did not bring food with you. The tent accommodation was excellent. The bed was very good and the bathroom excellent. Sitting on the deck watching the wallabies and sipping a glass of wine is very hard to beat. The flight over the Pound was fantastic and the 4 wheel drive trip highly recommended. A couple of local walks were also great including the walk into the Pound and up the first lookout. The public rooms all need re-decorating and re-furnishing. The roads around the Resort all needed patching and gave an initial impression of general poor maintenance which is never extinguished. Do not let me put you off because visiting Wilpena Pound is worth the trouble.
"An Intense Experience"
We booked a 3 night glamping deal at Wilpena (Ikara) that included a buffet breakfast, a half day 4WD excursion and a 20 minute scenic flight for the two of us. Overall, it was a terrific experience and highly recommended for all. The glamping tents were excellent accommodation. The beds were very large, the ensuite facilities were very good and the tents come with airconditioning which we didn't have to use as we had rain the first night and coolish days and nights therafter. They are a good size and also have a bar fridge and a safe (which wasn't really - it could be lifted out which made no sense to us plus it didn't work but that's another story. It didn't bother us.) so everything you need for such a stay. The 4WD excursion and flights were excellent and great value in our deal. Quite expensive ordinarily (excursion about $170 and flights about $135 or so, don't quote me) but still well worth doing if you can afford it. The whole trip gave us a better appreciation of Aboriginal customs and knowledge and we came away with more respect for their culture. The only weak point in the whole place and setup was the evening meals. Breakfast was very good but the a la carte food at night was satisfactory at best and left a fair bit of room to improve this area. If that could be improved then we would give it 9.5 out ofv10. As it is we think 7.5 is more accurate. No real complaints though as it is an isolated place with great walks and beautiful, stark countryside. Too many kangaroos and emus everywhere but that's the Oz bush for you. Taking our point more seriously about a mouse running around the dining room would have been good but, again, this did not affect the rating. We just think that because there are visitors from all walks of life and from all parts of the world Wilpena should make sure that hygiene is seen to be of the highest standard. Our thanks to Wilpena for making our stay a very good and interesting one. Highly recomended to glamp it!
"Location, Location, Location!"
We spent 2 nights in a Heysen Deluxe Room which contained a queen size bed and two singles and a small table and chairs. The room was spacious, clean and had an outdoor setting with a lovely view. The only downfall with the accommodation was the cleanliness of the bathroom, it was obvious that it hadn't been cleaned properly for some time. We ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay and the food on both occasions was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Both the food and wine were very reasonably priced and the service was excellent. For us the appeal of this resort was all about it's location (the quality of the food served in the restaurant was a surprising bonus) and on this basis it did not disappoint. The scenery was quite spectacular and our wildlife sightings were many.
We booked a safari tent which was absolutely fantastic. The tent was clean and the bathroom spotless. Plenty of wildlife around with a great view of the mountains. Watching the sun go down from the tent deck is priceless. The resort restaurant served delicious food and the resort staffs were very friendly and helpful. We had a memorable stay at the resort.
