In March 2008 the world-class Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island opened as South Australia’s new icon. The dramatic coastal national park location, architectural integrity, locally influenced cuisine and personalised interpretive adventures ensures this new entrant immediate success as an international destination of choice.

Southern Ocean Lodge aims to provide an iconic accommodation experience on Kangaroo Island and is designed to be a sanctuary of comfort, style and personal intimacy, redefining the Australian standard.

Located at Hanson bay on the Island’s south west coast, the Lodge site adjoins both the Flinders Chase and Cape Bouguer / Kelly Hill National Parks. 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. Modern luxury and design integrity meld with Kangaroo island vernacular and an amazing coastal colour palette, creating a unique eco chic style.

Its location, stunning views, contemporary environmental design, locally sourced food and beverages, personalised interpretative activities and modern wellness spa ensures its status as a South Australian icon.

Eat and Drink

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 Jed Archdeacon 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 honours these fine local ingredients with a cuisine style at once sophisticated and simple to promote the intense purity of flavours and to create a very special dining experience, unique to the Island and to Southern Ocean Lodge.

An excellent range of diverse Kangaroo Island and South Australian wines and beers has been hand selected to comprise the beverage menu. Rates include all dining and all beverages (cellarmasters list additional).

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, chill out lounge and spa cuisine program will complement an international spa design showcase.

Combined with the crisp Antarctic highly oxygenised air from the pounding surf, the Southern Spa invites guests to immerse in a pure, natural environment that is assured to rejuvenate and relax.

Experience

Southern Ocean Lodge offers guests a complete and personal Kangaroo Island experience. A signature itinerary of selected guided island excursions is designed daily and included in the tariff, allowing guests to encounter abundant wildlife in a ‘zoo without fences’ and discover the Island’s unique natural attractions, often with exclusive access and always with a touch of luxe.

The Southern Ocean Lodge guide introduces sea lions at Seal Bay, guides an exploration of the vast wilderness of Flinders Chase National Park, and leads a journey through coastal flora along the limestone clifftops. A menu of Bespoke Experiences offers further exploration and 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.
