Luxury Tent: From £872 per person per night
Longitude 131 is an Australian first and is quite simply one of the best wilderness hotels in the world. Stay in one of the fifteen tented sanctuaries, enjoying panoramic, uninterrupted views of Uluru and the surrounding desert landscape. The hotel is situated high on a sand dune eight kilometres from Ayers Rock Resort and is designed with meticulous attention to detail and unprecedented awareness of the cultural and environmental sensitivity of the area. At the heart of the camp is The Dune House, a stunning central area serving exquisite food and wine, a do-it-yourself or fully serviced cocktail bar, extensive library and reclusive lounge. Rooms are lavishly decorated with natural fibres and crisp white bed linen, whilst the swimming pool and open fire-pit combine to offer a deluxe camping experience like no other. An array of tours exploring the surrounding area take place throughout the day, from 'Sunrise and Valley of the Winds' at the Olgas, through Botanic Walks to the Desert Awakenings Sunset and Star Talk.
