William and Kate's romantic night under the stars at luxury 'glamping' resort in the Outback
22 APRIL 2014
To complete Prince William and Kate Middleton's unforgettable visit to Australia's iconic Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, the royal couple are to spend the night at Longitude 131°, a luxe tented resort with 15 exclusive pavilions, each with a stunning view of Uluru.
For them to fully enjoy the secluded experience at the stunning retreat, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to have a night off parenting duties, leaving their adorable son Prince George with his nanny in Canberra.

All 15 luxury suites ‒ canvas-topped "tents" dotted around the red dunes at the entrance to Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park ‒ are reportedly booked out for the night. Lucky guests will get to "glamp" under the stars in the Outback – one of the best places to explore the galaxy of stars in the night sky – before waking at sunrise to watch the changing light on one of Australia's most famous landmarks.
The super stylish, yet welcoming and relaxed resort invites guests to enjoy the spiritual heart of Australia with the utmost of luxury. Tents come with wall-length windows offering uninterrupted and unparalleled views of the north side of Uluru, which bears natural markings that are culturally sensitive to the local Anangu people, draped canvas roofs evoking thoughts of Arabian Nights, as well as the home comforts of luxurious bedding, spotless bathrooms and tiled floors.
William and Kate, relaxing after a busy day at the world's largest monolith and learning about the sacred sites of Uluru and neighbouring Kata Tjutu, will at last enjoy some time alone, when they can help themselves to drinks in Longitude's explorer lounge, or sip cocktails around the oasis pool.
Gourmet dining with a daily menu change is served either in the restaurant, or in the sandy desert under a blanket of stars, accompanied by the hypnotic sound of a didgeridoo, at the exclusive, $1100-per-person resort at Uluru.
