Sensitively designed to blend seamlessly with this ruggedly beautiful, untouched landscape, Southern Ocean Lodge appears to float along its secluded cliff top setting.
The expansive Great Room lies at the helm, forming the hub of the lodging experience – dine decadently in the Restaurant, lounge with a book and a drink or plan a great day ahead. Floor to ceiling windows extend panoramic views of white-sanded beaches pounded by the wild Southern Ocean. Local limestone walls, recycled timbers and bespoke furnishings afford guests a sanctuary of refined comfort and luxe, Kangaroo Island style.
Guests can be as active as they please or, just enjoy time out watching the Great Southern Ocean and the lodge ambience of the Great Room.
A grand, ever-changing landscape and wild untouched horizons invoke a sense of being a privileged pioneer. With exceptional guided experiences and adventures included in the nightly tariff, Southern Ocean Lodge delivers a complete Kangaroo Island experience. Guests can be as active as they please with a personalised experiential itinerary tailored on arrival, which affords guests the opportunity to encounter abundant wildlife first hand whilst ‘treading lightly’.
A range of signature activities offered daily allows guests to encounter a rich and varied wildlife: an up close and personal encounter with a sea lion, an excursion to explore the vast labyrinth of nearby Kelly Hill Caves, the discovery of the magic of the Southern Sky from the comfort of the stargazing platform. Walk amongst enormous sea lions basking languidly on the beach, witness kangaroos at dusk – ‘kanape’ in hand. Discover Island food and wine delights or the local arts with an optional private charter or relax and enjoy nature’s theatre from a stage of organic luxe.
For dedicated island exploration, excellent private charters are also available. Discover epicurean delights, visit local artists or step off the beaten track to encounter wildlife in Australia's own Galapagos.
Venture along the coastal boardwalk to the secluded Southern Spa, an intimate and tranquil oasis atop sheer limestone cliffs, with views to the great sweep of the southern sky and imagined Antarctic. Retreat and rejuvenate with tailored treatments featuring the Dreamtime-inspired Li’tya spa care range and indigenous massage techniques. Kangaroo Island’s own natural beauty products – Ligurian honey, eucalyptus, mineral salts and lavender combine to create an essential Island spa experience.
