The Desert Cave Hotel allows you to experience dug-out style living, underground shops, bar and opal display areas - all within sandstone surrounds in the heart of Coober Pedy. Visitors can stay underground, or if they prefer, above ground rooms are also available. Sleeping underground is a unique experience. Quiet, cool, dark and airy - the rooms are spacious with high ceilings. Most visitors say that sleeping underground gives them the best night's sleep they have ever had. The hotel offers visitors the best opportunity to experience Coober Pedy 'dugout' living.
Coober Pedy is a town located in South Australia which houses a unique way of life. This town is the premiere destination for tourists looking to mine opal, and also the home of quite a few families. You may be thinking that living underground like this makes no sense, but the harsh summer temperatures in the deserts of South Australia can often times be too much. These underground caves sustain a consistent cool temperature, making it the perfect place to live in a not-so-perfect town.
The Desert Cave has 19 underground rooms and 31 aboveground rooms, you can sleep underground or above-ground, enjoy fine dining, splash in the pool, relax in the spa. Stroll in the cool comfort of our underground displays.
Underground and Aboveground accommodation, Opal shop, Cafe, Bar, Restaurant and display areas - all within beautiful, soft, natural sandstone surrounds.
Desert Cave Hotel, the only International underground 4 Star Hotel, allows you to experience dug-out style living. It's the experience of a lifetime.
