We stayed here over Christmas and I have nothing but the highest praise for this property. It deserves all the accolades it receives. The rooms are well-appointed, the food is fabulous and the staff was incredible. To put this review in context, we arrived at Longitude after being awake nearly 60 hours thanks to a truly incompetent U.S. airline. Upon arrival in Illurua, it was evident that Longitude 131 is not like the other "resorts" in the area. Aerial pictures on the property's web site are very accurate; it is set far away from the hotel compound. We were lucky to have one of the front row "tents" and the view was phenomenal. Given this property is all inclusive, I didn't expect the food to blow me away. But, it did. I assumed there would be a simple continental breakfast instead there was an extensive menu and this was also true for lunch. Dinner was also fabulous. Due to jet lag, we were only able to go on the first day's tour and the sunset viewing. The tour guide was informative and the sunset viewing came complete with a champagne toast. When we returned from the viewing, there were Christmas presents on the bed. Very touching. But, the true test of a property and its staff is how they perform when faced with unexpected and adverse circumstances. On Christmas eve night, I became violently ill. The staff drove me to the medical center in town where I spent the rest of the night and Christmas morning. The manager of this property personally came to the medical center to check on my condition at 2 am Christmas morning! This, to me, was incredible. Once I was released and back at the resort, without asking the staff called and asked what I could eat and promptly sent these amazing trays of food to the room. I was so touched by the staff and manager at Longetitude. We have been lucky enough to travel over the world and this is a must see property. We will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Camping certainly doesn’t come more glamorous nor the view from the ‘tent’ more spectacular than this.

In the spirit of the original pioneers, relax after a day’s exploring in a tent recreated for today's traveller with a swag of mod cons. The comforts of the lodge are offset by discovery of the World Heritage listed wilderness of Uluru-Kata Tjuta, explored on a series of signature guided encounters.
