Northern Territory’s highly-remote Kings Canyon Resort in the Watarrka National Park is set to diversify its accommodation offerings for the coming dry season with the opening of six new luxury ‘glamping’ style tents.
The six canvas homesteads will reflect the rugged Territory outback but will be blended with luxury hotel facilities including air-conditioning, premium linens and private ensuite with spa care products, while each will also be fitted with large windows to maximise the view. Each will feature a separate lounge and dining area and a verandah with outdoor lounges.
Three of the tents have been designed for couples and will offer a king bed, while the other three will be aimed at families and will be supplemented by two single beds.
Activities on offer to guests at the camp include a morning Rim Walk hike along the six-kilometre return trail which takes guests to the ‘Lost City’ rock formations and the ‘Garden of Eden’ area sacred to the local Indigenous community. Guests can also enjoy a helicopter tour and quad-biking. In the evening, guests can dine under the stars with a five-course degustation dinner using ingredients sourced from local communities.
“The new glamping tents will offer our guests the sensory experience of the Australian outback – the sights and sounds of the desert – but with all the comforts of a hotel stay,” said Kings Canyon Resort General Manager, Michelle Ikin.
“We think this style of accommodation will be a reason for guests to linger longer at Kings Canyon and explore more of this fascinating region.”
The six luxury tents are scheduled to open to guests on 01 June.
