“Kangaroo Island is widely regarded as Australia’s Galapagos and home to abundant native wildlife and spectacular natural beauty … every day is an all-inclusive, make-your-own adventure at globally celebrated Southern Ocean Lodge.”
Rooms: Perched on a dramatic cliff top, the Lodge is comprised of 21 organic luxury suites, each with welcoming panoramic views of the great Southern Ocean and boundless coastal wilderness. Featuring an environmentally sensitive design, every consideration has been given to navigating the fine balance between nature, comfort and contemporary style. Locally commissioned designer furnishings, recycled timbers, hand cut limestone walls and sandblasted floors complement a groundbreaking sustainable philosophy to promote a true and unique sense of place. All suites feature lavish King beds, sunken lounge, dramatic glass walled bathroom, heated floors, complimentary room bar, music system and an outdoor terrace with occasional seating and daybed.
Dining: Dining at Southern Ocean Lodge is both a dynamic delight for the senses and a true gastronomic journey of Kangaroo Island; the ‘produce to plate’ approach is a real passion for Chef Jack Ingram and his team. Celebrated as Australia’s culinary capital, the rich soils and pure rains of South Australia inspire artisan growers to produce a bounty of premium, fresh and often organic food and wines. The daily changing menu honors these fine local ingredients with a cuisine style at once sophisticated and simple to promote the intense purity of flavors and to create a very special dining experience, unique to the Island and to Southern Ocean Lodge. Rates include full gourmet breakfast, light lunch, 4-course dinner with inspired daily menu, selected alcoholic and all non-alcoholic beverages.
Pool & Gym: There is not a pool or fitness center at this very unique property and, take it from one of our advisor’s who has been there, “You will not miss it a bit.”
Spa: The Southern Spa is a private oasis of calm, perched high on a cliff top and commanding dramatic views of the Southern Ocean stretching toward the Antarctic. A destination in its own right, the spa fuses the unique landscape and location of Southern Ocean Lodge with the acclaimed Australian-made Li’Tya range of spa products and professional staff. A signature spa menu offers a selection of traditional and cutting edge treatments. A steam room and chill lounge complement an international spa design showcase. Combined with the crisp Antarctic highly oxygenized air from the pounding surf, the Southern Spa invites guests to immerse in a pure, natural environment that is assured to rejuvenate and relax.
Wifi: Complimentary internet in all suites and throughout the Lodge.
