Fodor's Review

In the desert 3 km (2 miles) from Ayers Rock Resort, Longitude 131° is the be-all and end-all of Outback luxury, with 15 elevated hard-floored "tents" with uninterrupted views of Uluru. Each tent is decorated with indigenous artworks and artefacts and has floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors for a panoramic view of the rock from the king-size bed. There are also private decks—perfect for watching the sunset over the rock—complete with a fire pit for when the temperatures go down at night. Gourmet meals using local and seasonal produce (room rates include all meals and drinks) are served in the Dune House, which also contains a formal lounge with an extensive library, a self-serve bar of top-shelf liquors and a swimming pool if you need to cool off. The resort also runs Table 131, an outdoor Sounds of the Silence–type dinner only for its guests and a range of personalized guided tours in and around Uluru are included in the tariff. There's no denying it's expensive, but if you can afford it, it's an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience. No children under 13 are allowed.
