Luxury Tents & Tree Houses

by Sarah Tuff

Voyages Longitude 131, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Australia
Forget Foster's oilcans, shrimp on the barbie, and anything Dundee. Now imagine a cluster of 15 solar-powered tents that seem to hover above the dunes near Uluru (otherwise known as Ayers Rock), the sacred sandstone site that glows red and orange in the Outback. This is luxury camping, Australian-style: The staff has created a personalized sound track that plays as you enter your flowing-fabric tent, left you a plate of freshly baked cookies, and stocked the minibar with cold drinks, all included in your rate. When you wake up, you flick the bedside switch to open the curtains and watch the sunrise over Uluru. Get up at leisure for a walkabout, which might include a look at ancient Aboriginal rock art. As evening rolls in, prep for an alfresco dinner with a splash in the pool and a quick postcard back home from your tent's writing desk—no Australian clichés, please.
Doubles from $900, all-inclusive; two-night minimum
