This is a mist for anyone wanting a break away from reality. The service is faultless and the managers john and Alyson just shine and generally care about you like you have arrived at there personal home. The food is local produce. The guided tours are also a great bonus

Wonderful 4 days of absolute indulgence . The lodge is amazing but what is really outstanding is the staff. Nothing is to much trouble for anyone. The meals are sensational, matched wines or go into cellar and choose what ever you feel like. The tours were so interesting , very knowledgable guides and they mix the guests around in each...

My wife and I spent 5 days, 4 nights at Southern Ocean Lodge in celebration of my wife's 40th birthday. From the initial ride to the lodge from the Airport with Melissa, it was evident that we were going to have a special stay. Words cannot describe the experience as you first walk up the boardwalk and have the huge... More

When we imagined our trip to KI, I envisioned this as being like the Aussie version of a safari; we had the African version three years ago and it was truly memorable. Largely because of Southern Ocean Lodge our high expectations were exceeded. First of all, this is an absolutely STUNNING location set along the cliffs overlooking the Southern Ocean.... More

The breathtaking beauty of this place is impossible to describe. The entire resort has been tailored made to cater to the awesome view of the southern ocean. Every window (and there are many) frames a picture perfect spectacle that demands your full attention. The rooms are exquisite luxury, the staff quickly become like family and the food and refreshments second... More

We have just spent two nights at this outstanding accommodation as part of our tour of Australia. From being collected at Kingscote Airport to being returned this morning, the Lodge has provided the ideal mixture of a luxurious suite, sumptuous food and the opportunity to spot remarkable native wildlife. Alcohol is included as part of the package and it is... More

We have returned from 3 fabulous days on Kangaroo Island. What a special place, so diverse. The wilderness is so untouched , and the locals are so welcoming. I think we got to try most of the local produce, we did save some for our next trip though. The staff at SOL are very attentive and make sure you want... More
