Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island

Set back from a cliff above the pounding surf the sensitive design showcases a full frontal panorama and is within easy reach of all of Kangaroo Island's major attractions. Defined by superb contemporary design, astonishing location and service.

It’s hard to imagine a more sympathetic tribute to the wild beauty of Kangaroo Island than Southern Ocean Lodge. This celebrated retreat, perched on a rise above Hanson Bay, takes full advantage of the surrounding nature without disturbing it. Contemporary suites cantilever along the curve of the clifftop each offering spectacular ocean views, while myriad thoughtful details from custom furnishings to warm limestone create a feeling of relaxed luxury.

The social hub of the lodge is the Great Room, a breathtaking designer space of restaurant, cocktail bar and lounge framing remarkable views of the rugged coastline. Dining is a true gastronomic journey with the best and freshest regional ingredients honoured across every menu. A generous ‘at-home’ feel flows throughout with a help-yourself bar and walk-in cellar featuring an exclusively South Australian wine selection.

The great outdoors lives up to its name with a Galapagos-sized contingent of endemic and unusual wildlife. Naturalist guides lead guests to first-hand experiences; a walk amongst the sea lions, spotting a soaring osprey or coming up close to a kangaroo are just some of the island’s many privileges. The secluded Southern Spa, housed in its own stunning cliff top pavilion, features signature treatments with Kangaroo Island botanicals to relax and rejuvenate, inspired by the Aboriginal dreamtime.
