Home of the feral camel, red kangaroo and emu, who would have thought that the remote Australian Outback is also the stomping ground of a 5-star luxury hotel and resort: Longitude 131°.
This eco-sensitive and romantic resort is found at the border of World Heritage listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in the Northern Territory in Australia, perfect for an Outback adventure in comfort.
Accommodation at Longitude 131° is really unique. Guests stay in elevated luxury tents, each paying homage to an early Australian pioneer or explorer. Each of the hotel’s 15 rooms is adorned with white domed roofs of flowing fabric draped from the center. They’re designed to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The creative and rustic design certainly fits the mood of the Outback. And, of course, each suite offers breathtaking views, especially during sunrise and sunset: a true experience in this stunning area of the world.
During the day, guests can “take the road less traveled” through Longitude’s exceptional wilderness touring program. Be sure to go on an expedition to Uluru—Australia’s world-renowned sandstone icon. You can experience tours in an intimate environment with a few other guests, or customize your own personal itinerary.
In the evening, enjoy the sunset at Dune Top with pre-dinner cocktails before going to dinner. Guests can feast under the stars at Longitude’s outdoor dining venue, Table 131°, or they can relax indoors in the Dune House. For guests looking for a more private dining experience, arrangements can always be made to dine in the library area, the Dune Top or at the poolside.
There isn’t any better way to experience the Outback in style, which is why Kiwi Collection recommends this desert gem.
