aus­tralia

Be­neath the shift­ing red light of Aus­tralia’s Ay­ers Rock, Lon­gi­tude 131 in­vites you to ex­pe­ri­ence the un­tamed out­back in the most el­e­gant way pos­si­ble. The 600-mil­lion-year-old rock is hailed as the red heart of Aus­tralia and you can feel the syn­ergy of the land­scape from your own pri­vate deck. Tan­ta­liz­ing tented cabins go the ex­tra mile – adorned in whim­si­cal white fab­ric, lo­cal art­work, and with floor to ceil­ing win­dows so you can wit­ness the chang­ing colours of Uluru. The main pav­il­ion is its own oa­sis away from the deliri­ous desert heat – the self-ser­vice bar is a sublime touch, as is the ex­tended pool deck with its frigidly re­fresh­ing wa­ters for lin­ger­ing af­ter­noon dips. Sup­pers at Lon­gi­tude call on lo­cal in­gre­di­ents; kangaroo steaks, Aus­tralian king prawns, golden man­gos and chia jam and won­der­ful wines. When you aren’t in­dulging in beau­ti­ful bush treat­ments at the spa, you can hike the base of Uluru, wit­ness the Walpa Gorge and star gaze be­neath the arched con­stel­la­tion clad sky. lon­gi­tude131.com.au
