When you wake in your luxury “tent” here, you can reach out from your king-size bed and press a button to raise the blinds on your window for a view unmatched anywhere in the world: Uluru as dawn strikes its ochre walls. Your bed, under a softly draped romantic white canopy, is in one of 15 five-star eco-sensitive “tents” set among isolated sand dunes a mile or two from the main resort complex. Each room is decorated in tribute to the European explorers and pioneers of this region. There’s a CD player and MP3 docking station but no TV (and who needs one?). The central area, the Dune House, has a restaurant with superb food, a 24-hour bar, and a library. Settle in for some after-dinner chess or chat. For a special dining experience, book your place at Table 131[dg], where dinner is set up in style under the stars among gently rolling sand dunes. No children under 13.
