Plans revealed for glamping at Kings Canyon Resort

Plans revealed for glamping at Kings Canyon Resort
February 24, 2019

Kings Canyon Resort in the heart of Australia’s Red Centre will have a new look for the winter season with plans revealed for a new glamping product, allowing guests a first-hand experience of the sights and sounds of the magnificent outback canyon.

Set to open on 1st June, six new Australian homestead-style glamping tents have been designed to blend with the Northern Territory landscape while offering luxurious hotel comforts for guests.

Spacious and contemporary, the new glamping tents feature canvas sides and large windows to welcome in the views, as well as king beds with premium linens, modern lounge and dining area, split air-conditioning and private ensuite stocked with Australian spa care products.  Outdoors, generous verandas offer cool lounging space.

Three tents have been designed for couples, while three family tents feature a king bed plus two king single beds. Rates in the new glamping tents start at $390 per person per night* and include breakfast. Children 12 years and under stay free, making Kings Canyon Resort an attractive option for family holidays.

Guests wake to the crested bellbird’s peaceful singing ahead of a day of adventure with a hike through Kings Canyon’s Rim Walk, a six-kilometre trail leading walkers around the canyon walls to the remarkable rock domes of the ‘Lost City’ and to the ‘Garden of Eden’, a hidden oasis sacred to the region’s indigenous Martutjarra-Luritja people who are the custodians of the land.

A two-night minimum stay at Kings Canton Resort is recommended to fully appreciate the outback experience, to take part in the Karreke indigenous cultural tour and dine under the stars with the five-course Under A Desert Moon degustation dinner showcasing local produce and bush ingredients.

Kings Canyon Resort General Manager Michelle Ikin said the new glamping tents were designed to appeal to the modern traveller, keen to really experience the landscape, food and culture of the destination.

Ikin advised “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.

“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. 

“Guests looking for more adventure can take a heli-tour over the outback or take out a quad bike. After sunset drinks and dining under a blanket of stars, our guests can end each unforgettable day at Kings Canyon in glamping-style comfort with the peaceful night sounds of the desert as soundtrack.”

Regarded as Australia’s Grand Canyon, the magnificent Kings Canyon is part of the Watarrka National Park, approximately mid-way between Alice Springs and the World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Kings Canyon Resort currently comprises a range of accommodation including resort rooms, value-travel lodge rooms and a camping and caravanning site overlooking Kings Canyon.
