The dining tent at Longitude 131 in Australia

Located in the heart of Australia's Northern Territory, Longitude 131° is a luxurious eco-sensitive resort ... and the perfect spot to watch the sunset over Uluru (Ayers Rock), the country's celebrated, 600-million-year-old, red sandstone mountain. While here, you'll stay in one of fifteen elevated tent-like structures, each with a specific theme paying tribute to early Australian pioneers and explorers. Guests can hang out with fellow adventurers at the Dune House, home to a library of maps and books about the region, a casual lounge and the house restaurant, serving outback-inspired cuisine. For a unique culinary experience, Table 131° features fine dining and cultural dances under the stars. As with everything else about this property, the excursions are meticulously curated and include sunrise walks through the desert landscape and tours of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
