If you want a dress circle view of Uluru, look no further. This secluded, low impact ecolodge – Uluru’s most prestigious accommodation – is a bucket list experience in itself.

It consists of just 15 luxury tents perched on the red dunes outside Yulara. Each pod is equipped with a lounge, bedroom, bathroom and private balcony.

Treatments at the Spa Kinara include rejuvenating facials, Swedish massage and body exfoliation. It’s designed for well-heeled couples; children under 10 are not permitted.

Not only is its location extraordinary, but also an ideal base for exploring the park. The lodge itself offers a wide range of its own guided walks, indigenous art tours and bespoke dining experiences. Scenic flights, camel rides and Outback cycling tours are also available.

Surrounding area

Longitude 131 is located on Aboriginal land about 15 minutes’ drive from Ayers Rock Airport.

The resort has been built on a series of dramatic red dunes that overlook Uluru. There’s nothing else around for miles; thanks to its isolation, the property is the perfect place for stargazing.
