Dune House forms the property’s communal dining and lounge space and features a bar decorated with some 500 individually hand-painted tiles from Indigenous arts community Ernabella. Full board is included as part of the day rate, and you’ll be glad of it come the evening. The signature outdoor dining experience, Table 131°, serves up a night sky of billions of stars and even glimpses of the Milky Way.
Continuing the celestial theme, Spa Kinara (meaning ‘moon’) is the property’s spa and takes its design inspiration from the traditional Aboriginal outback shelter, or wiltja. Although fairly small – just two rooms – it offers an innovative menu of treatments using a posy of outback botanicals, including the cure-all irmangka-irmangka (scented emu bush).
For an intimate and luxurious way to experience one of Australia’s most iconic natural wonders, Longitude 131° is as memorable a stay as it gets.
