Set against the dramatic red backdrop of the almighty Uluru, the white canopies of Longitude 131° seemingly float with dreamy temptation.
A luxury desert basecamp at the forefront of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, it’s here that you can wake to the sacred rock peering over the foot of your bed, and to a kaleidoscope of colors sweeping across the walls of your suite.
Rich in cultural heritage, history and all the comforts of home, Longitude 131° overflows with a certain kind of opulence – that which would undoubtedly seduce even the most seasoned luxury traveler. Indulge in a sense of stillness at your sanctuary of earthy elegance.
Relax on outdoor decks, sleep under a blanket of stars or learn ancient stories of the Anangu.
At the end of the day, treat your taste buds to a meal at Table 131° and toast to the setting sun.
The burning oranges and reds will take over the outback, and the stars will claim space over the velvety night sky.
LONGITUDE 131 LOCATION
Regarded as the spiritual heart of Australia, the Northern Territory’s Red Centre is rich in Aboriginal culture and enchanting natural beauty. Dual World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta spans an immense 311,000 acres, and the crown jewel of it all – Uluru – sits warmly at its core.
Direct flights are available to the Red Centre daily from Sydney, or on a less frequent basis from Melbourne. Longitude 131° provides guests complimentary 4WD airport transfers, resulting in a mere 15-minute drive to get to the resort and more time to settle into your luxury surrounds.
With just 16 private luxury tents, Longitude 131° brings contemporary comforts to the rugged Australian outback. Each one of the canopied pavilions boasts classic furnishings and Indigenous artwork, while electronic blinds and a glass wall on one side reveal unobstructed views of Uluru itself. Air conditioning, an inviting bathroom and small desk with iPad and MP3 input round out the rest of the in-tent experience, making for a simple yet refined sense of luxury.
Outside, balconies feature modern day beds, fireplaces and pools. Swags can be available on request should you wish to camp out under the stars, and you can complete the experience with a selection of digestifs by the fireside. Meals here are masterfully-prepared by the lodge chef, highlighting authentic Australian flavors through the finest produce found in the country.
Luxury Tent Designed to accommodate two, the Luxury Tents are filled with custom-designed furniture and feature a bespoke ‘Baillie Bed’ dressed in the finest linens. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out to the enormous rock that is Uluru, while the ensuite bathroom boasts a rain shower and a large deck offers a day bed, armchairs and fireplace. A complimentary bar, plush bathrobes, daily housekeeping and signature evening turndown service complete the amenities of the room, along with a music system, wireless internet, telephone and safe.
Dune Pavilion Expansive and contemporary, the Dune Pavilion can accommodate up to five guests, making it ideal for two couples, a group of friends or a family to share. The only accommodation in Australia to enjoy views of both Uluru and Kata Tjuta, it offers separate living and sleeping areas, custom furnishing and artwork, a bathroom with deep tub overlooking the desert landscape and an outdoor deck with daybed, fireplace and private plunge pool. Amenities for the Dune Pavilion are the same as the Luxury Tents, but with the added perks of a curated bar and private dining for breakfast and sunset drinks.
