Longitude 131

Yulara Northern Territory, Australia

Fifteen elegant white tents afloat on a vast sea of Australian outback -- welcome to Longitude 131°, a luxurious safari-like experience where the ochre-red hues of the bush envelope you like a sleeping bag. With the sacred Aboriginal site of Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, rising up on the horizon, here you reside close to the core of indigenous Australian mythology. Gaze upon Uluru from the glass walls of your ultra-comfy tent, but don’t fail to get closer with a personal sunset tour of the famous rock -- drinks will be waiting for you in Longitude 131°’s campy bar when you return.
