Longitude 131 has been named the world’s top eco-friendly hotel by a recent travel survey.
British travellers taking flights to Australia to explore the country’s Northern Territory and see outback highlights such as Uluru have been alerted to an eco-friendly travel destination.
Longitude 131 has been awarded the top prize for eco-friendly resorts and hotels in the Centurion Magazine Readers Choice survey 2011.
This international poll of American Express Centurion card holders included votes from over 30 countries worldwide.
Tapa Tibble, general manger of Longitude 131, said she was “delighted” to win the award from such a discerning readership.
“This recognition reaffirms our dedication to providing guests with the ultimate Australian outback experience and our commitment to eco-tourism,” she added.
Longitude 131 offers an ideal base for exploring the dual World Heritage listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park as well as some modern Australian cuisine, with private views of the sunrise over Ayers Rock.
Prices for a three-night break over the coming months start at $880 (£568) per person per night, including all meals, guided tours and spa treatments.
