Luxurious, eco-sensitive and romantic, Longitude 131° offers complete immersion into the wilderness of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. This award-winning luxury camp in Australia's Red Centre has achieved new heights in ecotourism and has raised the bar for responsible travel. Longitude 131° is set atop an isolated sand dune close to the border of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. From the crisp, white linen of a king-sized bed, visitors are introduced to the peaceful sleep of the wild and awaken to the remote and beautiful expanse of the Australian Desert. As one of only a select number of guests, bask in the comfort of your intimate, luxury tent and take pleasure in your own private view of the sun rising over Uluru (Ayers Rock). Dine out at Table 131° situated directly in the outback, and enjoy an unforgettable evening experience as the glow of the sun fades and your voices carry on through the night. This property was named one of National Geographic’s Most Unique Lodges in the World.
Your luxurious tent is a private place to rest, relax and refresh. No expense has been spared in ensuring your stay with Longitude 131° is a special experience which nurtures your body, stimulates your mind and liberates your spirit. A white dome roof and flowing fabric draped from the center create the illusion of camping. But unlike the early pioneers and explorers, guests revel in sublime comfort. The flick of a bedside switch is all it takes to raise the blinds and watch the spectacular moods of Uluru at sunrise. Meticulously designed to remain cool in summer and warm in winter, interiors span 40 square meters (430 square feet) and comprise a palatial sleeping and lounge space, comfortably filled with turn of the century campaign-style furnishings and an intriguing array of artefacts.
Dine and relax in the earth-toned Dune House, the heart of Longitude 131°, with its panoramic views and dramatic domed roof. Breakfast begins early with freshly baked pastries, fruit and a la carte menu selection. Premium espresso coffee and a generous selection of fine leaf teas are signature elements. After a morning filled with walks, or simply spent relaxing with a book by the pool, appetites are up for lunch. The three course menu offers a selection of seasonal treats and is deceptively light, leaving room for afternoon tea served to coincide with departure of the afternoon activity. A selection of Australian and international cheeses and homemade lavosh are provided on tour.
Dine out on sumptuous outback fare and discover the wonders of the southern night sky. As you arrive to your dinner setting, enjoy canapes and cocktails as the sun dips below the horizon, and later be mesmerised by indigenous performers with a cultural dance. Feast on four delicious courses complemented with the finest Australian wines at our outdoor dining venue under the stars.
Indulge and relax right in the heart of the central Australian outback with a visit to the serene Red Ochre Spa. A treatment is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the timeless landscape of one of the world’s most beautiful natural wonders. The advanced skincare formulations and professional spa therapies provide life-enhancing solutions for every man and woman. Unique massage sequences and power-boosting facials address your specific skin and body conditions, producing visible results, whilst re-awakening the senses. The Red Ochre Spa is located within Sails in the Desert Hotel, at the nearby Ayers Rock Resort. Longitude 131° provides return transfers to and from the Spa.
