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 stongholds. 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, the Anangu, 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."
