Longitude 131° - At a Glance
Timeless and enriching, Longitude 131° lies at the gateway to the dual World Heritage listed wilderness of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
“The Red Centre is Australia at its most iconic and to visit here is to embrace this ancient land’s spiritual past. Longitude 131° honours Uluru’s significance with moving guest experiences.” Signature Luxury Travel & Style magazine.
Longitude 131° offers an essential experience of Australia’s spiritual heartland, a true sense of stillness and beauty in the desert landscape, rich in culture, heritage and history.
In the spirit of the original pioneers, safari-style tented pavilions are recreated for the modern traveller to float over the rust-red dunes. Unparalleled views of Uluru’s changing lights play out from the end of the bed, or on balconies from the warmth of a cosy swag unfurled in the cool night air. Contemporary furnishings, artworks by local indigenous artists and an array of mod cons dispel any illusion of roughing it.
Central to a stay is discovery of Uluru-Kata Tjuta and connection with the ancient creation stories of the land’s traditional custodians, explored on the Lodge’s personally guided adventures.
The Dune House is the heart of Longitude 131° with its panoramic views and cantilevered roof. Enjoy an outback sundowner at the convivial open bar and savour world class cuisine celebrating a fusion of modern and indigenous flavours. Retreat to Spa Kinara for a rejuvenating treatment, relax poolside or absorb the breathtaking setting from the Dune Top, best observed submerged in the plunge pool, glass-in-hand.
"Once the beaming red hue of Uluru browns and darkens as the sun sets on Australia's spiritual centre, most visitors begin to depart, leaving the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to its Aboriginal custodians. But for those who stay at Longitude 131° - a five-star tented eco-camp with just 15 luxury tents, a stone's throw from the sandstone monolith - the evening comes alive with the sound of a didgeridoo as the stars twinkle in the skies above."
