Heading south of Adelaide, Southern Ocean Lodge is, in their own words, ‘Australia’s first true luxury lodge’ and it sits on top of a secluded cliff on a rugged stretch of coast on Kangaroo Island overlooking the Southern Ocean. You can reach the island on a 30-minute flight from the city, or via car and ferry taking you down South Australia’s coast.
The 21 suites provide a sanctuary of refined luxury and comfort. Rooms feature lavish king beds, a sunken lounge, glass-walled bathrooms and spa amenities. The décor is understated and fitting with the landscape, with sandblasted limestone floors, recycled spotted gum tree walls and furnishing commissioned by local artists.
Your stay here is inclusive of accommodation, à la carte meals, drinks (including spirits and premium wines) and four-wheel drive touring.
The lodge offers small group tours of the island’s highlights, travelling during off-peak times so you can enjoy a more exclusive ‘safari’ feel, including the Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and the colony of fur seals and a visit to Grassdale where you can watch kangaroos and wallabies grazing while you enjoy drinks and canapés.
Southern Ocean Lodge is a fantastic eco-resort with sensational views over the ends of the Earth.
