The Top 10 New Resorts for 2003: Longitude 131º, Northern Territory, Australia’s Outback

<< Back to Robb Report, March 2003

At this safari-style camp, you’ll follow the footsteps of early explorers, revel in solitude and serenity, and share a pioneer’s sense of wonder as you gaze upon sweeping views across red-earth sand dunes and Uluru (Ayers Rock).

This lavish five-star resort on the border of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park—the first safari camp in Australia’s outback and unlike anything else on the continent—immerses you in unspoiled wilderness. Even so, you will certainly not find the conditions primitive: Each of the 15 elevated tents offers gratifying luxury, privacy, and comfort with minibar, CD player, air-conditioning, and heating. All the amenities are furnished, from bathrobes and hairdryer to evening turndown service and writing desk.

Also on site: an outdoor pool and Dune House with lounge, dining area, library, and open bar stocked with premium Australian brews and spirits.
