Longitude 131°, Australia
Location, location, location! As the crow flies, this unique eco-sensitive ‘all-inclusive’ tented sanctuary is only 10kms from Uluru (Ayers Rock). Deluxe camping at its very best, Longitude 131° has brought a whole new level of luxury to Australia’s Red Centre. It offers an extraordinary opportunity to become immersed in the remote wilderness of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in Australia’s heartland - and has been acclaimed as one of the best wilderness hotels in the world.
Accommodation is provided in 15 stylishly appointed elevated tents, breathtakingly positioned on an isolated sand dune close to the border of the National Park. Each tent enjoys its own private view of the sun rising and setting over the Rock. The interior décor has been purposely designed to reflect a visual narrative of Australian history - each tent is individually themed with the life and adventures of Australia’s early explorers and pioneers, from the 1800s to the modern day.
No expense has been spared with the contemporary furnishings - and each features a kingsize bed (some twins are also available), an ensuite with shower, air-conditioning and even an ipad from which to play music - this is ‘splendid isolation’ at its very best! Fly screens cover the glass doors at the front, allowing you the option of sleeping with your windows open to experience the sounds of the desert at night. All tents now feature a balcony with a day bed and fire place, you can even sleep outside if you so desire.
The Dune House is the central hub of this unique wilderness ‘camp’. It includes a lounge, library, a self-service open bar and a communal dining area where you can enjoy modern Australian cuisine whilst exchanging ‘desert’ stories with the other guests. There is also a pool and deck with panoramic views of Uluru.
Every second evening, a gourmet dinner under the stars is available. The evening begins with Champagne and canapés at sunset before sitting down for dinner in a secluded desert setting - you will be joined by a resident astronomer.
Integral to the Longitude 131° experience is the daily programme of optional sunrise and sunset tours (all included in your stay) which explore the living, cultural and natural landscapes of Uluru and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). You will join the other privileged guests for an authentic and fascinating insight into the ecological fabric of Australia’s red heart. In addition, there is also the Eco Walk (an interpretive walking tour of the local bushland) and the Gallery Tour (Mulgara Gallery at nearby Ayers Rock Resort is leading the way in championing local indigenous artists and their works).
Children 10 years and under are not catered for. A minimum 2 night stay applies, but if time permits, we highly recommend a 3 night stay.
