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. Modernist suites favour refined comfort over ostentation to 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 rugged coastline. With a passion for providing a real ‘sense of place’, 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 convivial open bar and walk-in cellar featuring an exclusively South Australian wine selection. The great outdoors live up to their 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 just one 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.

From Jesetter:

"Consider Kangaroo Island Australia’s Galápagos, a lush terrain dominated by dramatic coastal views and endemic species like wallaby, goanna, and echidna (an egg-laying marsupial that looks like a cross between a porcupine and an anteater). This is the setting for the Southern Ocean Lodge, a 21-suite stunner whose glass-fronted façade follows the curve of its coastal clifftop. The ethos here is eco-friendly: limestone floors and spotted gum walls are made from recycled materials, there’s no public pool, and the award-winning seasonal cuisine is all sourced locally. After digging into plates of free-range lamb or foraged samphire, ask about their walking and biking safaris, which are led by the resort's naturalist guides."
