To start planning your holiday to Longitude 131
A collection of luxury tents set in spectacular surroundings overlooking the sacred sites of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, Longitude 131 is romantic, exclusive and luxurious, offering guests an intimate encounter with this spirited land.
With only fifteen tents overlooking Uluru (or Ayer's Rock), one of Australia’s most iconic features, Longtitude 131 is the most unique way to experience this amazing destination. Here you can enjoy the luxury of good food, comfortable beds and wonderful service as well as the best guides in order to explore and experience this amazing place.
Longitude 131 takes 'glamping' to another level. The tents are lavishly decorated in a traditional Australian style with a white dome roof, billowing drapes, plush five star furnishing. The flick of a bedside switch is all it takes to raise the blinds and watch the spectacular ever changing light move across Uluru.
The Dune House is the central building with dining room, open bar and library and here meals can be enjoyed communally with other guests or private dining can also be arranged. Dining at Table 131 is something that all guests must experience at Longitude 131 - it is atmospheric alfresco dining at its best with the sound of the didgeridoo accompanying modern, Australian fusion cuisine. There is even a resident storyteller to share stories of the past around the camp fire.
An exclusive touring programme is included in your stay here, and with only a few other guests you will get a unique insight into this sacred land, the aboriginal culture and the flora and fauna of this vast desert landscape. There is also a fantastic pool from where you can watch the changing colours of the rock as the sun sinks low over the plains.
Each of Longitude 131's 15 luxury 'tents' are raised on platforms for maximum views. Furnishings are modern and lavish and all rooms have bedside controls for the blinds so sunrise over Uluru can be enjoyed without moving an inch. Each tent plays homage to one of Australia's early pioneers or explorers and visual narratives adorn the walls. Rooms have heating and air-conditioning, bose sound systems, CD players and iPod connectivity.
In addition each tent has a balcony which offer luxurious outdoor lounging and unparalleled views of Uluru. The balconies feature comfy armchairs, an EcoSmart fire for the evenings and generous daybed. Opt for a night under the stars, an after-dinner snack with accompanying digestifs as part of the luxury turndown service. Star-gaze and enjoy a peaceful sleep in the open on the new custom-designed Baillie swag.
Children under the age of 12 years are not accepted at Longitude 131.
Wholesome breakfasts and gourmet lunches are served for guests in the Dune House and Table 131, the resort's alfresco three course dining experience under the stars is an unforgettable evening rounded off with after dinner drinks at The Dune House. Private dining can also be arranged. The Dune House has a library, dining area, open bar, swimming pool and deck with panoramic views of Uluru. Guests can visit the Red Ochre Spa at the nearby Ayers Rock Resort for pampering spa treatments.
Staying at Longitude 131 includes a touring programme. Experiences include walking to the Gantju Gorge to witness the gorge walls ablaze with the falling sun and enjoying champagne and nibbling canapés while the sun sets over Uluru. Another experience includes a sunrise walk with a breakfast set up for you at a picturesque resting point. Longitude like to combine history, nature and luxury! Camel, helicopter and harley rides and privately guided tours can also be booked at an additional cost.

Red dusty earth, cornflower blue sky and seemingly just in front of the Rock a scattering of structured white tented rooms… the colours really do make fabulous contrasts. Uluru (Ayers Rock) is undoubtedly a stunning sight, rising up from the flat earth, and has many Aboriginal spiritual and cultural traditions attached. And Longtitude 131 is by far the best accommodation here - in luxury tented rooms with fabulous views. Adults only, definitely no children making it a calm and relaxed atmosphere. However, in my personal opinion, I think Ayers Rock could be missed out of an itinerary altogether if time is a restraint, as it is a long flight here and there are equal if not better Aboriginal experiences elsewhere in Australia.
