Luxurious Southern Ocean Lodge floats atop a secluded cliff on a dramatic stretch of deserted Kangaroo Island coast, commanding staggering views of the wild Southern Ocean.

The 21 deluxe eco-chic suites feature lavish furnishings and sleeping areas, sunken lounge, glass-walled ensuites and outdoor terrace, each extending to arresting views. Signature design elements such as sandblasted limestone floors and recycled spotted gum feature walls, as well as contemporary bespoke furniture and artworks commissioned from local artisans, promote a real sense of place and complement a philosophy of true ecological sustainability.
All-inclusive rates include gourmet breakfast, lunch, 4-course dinner with inspired daily menu, all beverages (cellar masters list additional), island airport transfers and exceptional guided adventures and experiences.
