Baillie Lodges has transformed its luxury desert camp Longitude 131° with the addition of stylish new balconies on each of its 15 ‘tents’, creating contemporary outdoor living areas while enhancing its unrivalled views of Uluru.
Styled with expansive day beds, armchairs and EcoSmart fireplaces, the luxury of Longitude 131° has been extended outdoors, providing guests with a new perspective on the surrounding desert landscape. Central to the new concept is a bespoke luxury swag for two, a modern reinvention of the traditional Australian bushman’s bedroll. Unfurled at nightfall in front of the fireplace, it gives guests the option of sleeping beneath a blanket of southern stars while still enjoying the comfort and style of Australia’s most celebrated desert retreat. The swags are offered as part of a decadent new evening service in which guests are served port, Cognac and other digestifs by firelight.
The new balconies are the latest enhancements by Baillie Lodges since taking over Longitude 131° in late 2013. They follow a multi-million dollar refurbishment that introduced features including designer furnishings, Indigenous artworks and the group’s signature “Baillie Bed”.
Creating a whole new level of intimacy, the luxe outdoor features are designed to remove any barrier between guests and the landscape at Australia’s spiritual heart. Revealing a fresh panorama in an environment of relaxed luxury and natural peace, Longitude 131° elevates the outback experience to iconic heights.
