In 1981, Umberto Coro began to realize a dream of sharing the extraordinary experience of underground living in Coober Pedy with visitors to the town. He had been associated with the town's mining and hospitality industry for more than 26 years, so in 1984 construction on the Desert Cave Hotel commenced.

Officially opened in 1988, 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.

For an experience of a lifetime, stay in one of the underground rooms, or if you prefer, above ground rooms are also available. Sleeping underground is a unique experience; the rooms are quiet, cool, dark and airy with high ceilings. Past guests have commented that sleeping underground was one of the best night's sleep they have ever had!

Enjoy an excellent selection of menu items at Umbertos Restaurant and be sure to pop into the lounge for a pre-dinner drink. For breakfast or lunch options, visit the Café Crystal located underground. Tour options available, ask for details.
