The light coming off Ayers Rock is like something out of a movie – most photogenic environment I’ve ever witnessed. As one of only 30 guests, there is an element of privacy and serenity with nature that is unparalleled. The eco-tents are incredibly designed for comfort and once-in-a-lifetime views of Uluru while lying on your own outdoor daybed star-gazing by fire. The excursions are all specially granted to Longitude 131 by the indigenous people of Uluru and guests have access to parts of the rock that no one else can get close to, all in accordance with the respect these sacred grounds deserve.
Each tent has its own private view of the sun rising over Uluru. Reflecting colors I have never witnessed in real life, Uluru drenches you with its fabled light that changes constantly. The narrative on the walls of your tent tells the story of the discoveries made by an early outback pioneer. In the insanely comfortable king-sized bed you find the serene, silent sleep of the desert. Above the sweeping canopy of your palatial tent floats the clear night sky. I’ve never been able to see so many stars and this is simply because you are so so so far from any sense of bustling life.
There is a beautiful outdoor pool that cools you off from the dry heat.
The spa is a recent addition that was just installed in 2017 during upgrades and features treatments that utilize indigenous resources and bush medicine.
The Dune House is the central tent where guests dine, relax, and can access a feel-at-home bar that is open throughout the day, to satisfying any thirst with Australian wines and beers, as well as top shelf liquors. Private dining experiences such as Table 131 allow you to dine privately or with a group under the stars. During my stay, there happened to be an artist’s year-long light installation in a field nearby, that included a walkabout and then dinner under the stars to conclude the evening. It was magical. There is a bar that Crocodile Dundee would kill for inside the Dune House, but the real gem is sunset cocktail hour near the actual rock. A full bar and apps are set up, while you watch the sun set against Uluru and take selfies of a lifetime.
Children under 10 years of age are not catered to at Longitude 131.
Upon arrival at Ayers Rock airport a Longitude 131 representative had a private transfer waiting. Otherwise it’s a self-drive scenario. Helicopters are available upon special request.
Uluru (Ayers Rock) is located in the Red Centre of Australia, in the Northern Territory.
