Set on its own in the desert 3 km (2 miles) from Ayers Rock Resort, a stay at Longitude 131° is the be-all and end-all of Outback luxury with 15 "tents" that pop out of the desert like a colony of perfect white domes. Each tent has floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors for a panoramic view of the rock from the king-size bed. 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 and an self-serve bar of top-shelf liquors. The resort also runs Table 131, an outdoor Sounds of the Silence–type dinner only for its guests. No children under 13 allowed.
