We stayed at Longitude in two "tents" for three nights in late August. Upon arrival we were greeted and given champagne and a overview of our itinerary and hotel stay. We were informed that we should "make ourselves at home" and help ourselves to the fridges and bars as we please. We felt very comfortable throughout our stay and were treated extremely well by all staff.
The "tents" are amazing! They have non-interrupted views of Uluru, which is just perfect to wake to to! Electronic blinds & fly screens make it all the better. The beds are very comfortable. The Australian discoverer theme was done tastefully in both our tents.
The table 131 dinner under the stars was a fantastic opportunity. But being there in winter meant sitting in the dark was freezing!
The chefs do a great job with the menu, incorporating local Australian ingredients as much as possible. We found that it would have been better for the lunch menu to change daily or 2nd daily as we ended up repeating and having to choose from & eat the same things...bit repetitive. But dinner changed each night and breakfast was great. The staff were excellent at pairing wines with the different courses and were eager to please. The service was really great.
The organized tours were good & incorporated exactly what you would want to do/see in Yulara. The hotel was happy to drop you off/pick you up from extra activities as you please.
We felt very privileged as the "star talker" gave us a special talk and look through his telescope on our last night. As there was a full moon out for our table 131 dinner which obstructed the stars earlier in our stay.
There are iPads provided in each room with great free wifi. And the hotel provides privileged check in when flying virgin which meant we were able to skip the queue! A really nice touch!
Make sure you allow time to just enjoy the hotel room and facilities!
Everything is taken care of and you can really just enjoy your stay in Yulara without having to worry about a thing!
I would definitely recommend, and wouldn't stay anywhere else whilst visiting the red centre!
