We spent three days at the Berkeley River Lodge in the dry season in 2014. The flight from Kununurra in a float plane was an excellent experience, landing on the Berkeley river to be ferried to the resort. Accommodation was very comfortable in chalets. Views were exceptional. Food was excellent. The fishing trips on the River were brilliant with many... More

My husband and I visited for four nights and I can't speak highly enough of every single aspect of the experience! From the time we made the booking enquiry, until we left, the experience was completely first class. You truly feel as though everybody involved in your stay genuinely cares - which I think is a pretty rare feeling when... More

We visited with another couple and had rooms 20 and 19 with stunning views. These are the farthest away 10-15 minute walk from the main resort but the staff will happily pick you up in a golf cart. The room had every facility except perhaps more hanging space and we enjoyed the outside bathroom with frogs in the toilet and... More

It is all too good to believe or do just in a quick review... a simple but truly elegant, easy-going, eco-conscious resort. It's a great all-inclusive value too. Freshly caught fish served up as gourmet snacks during happy hour before a degustation dinner. Who needs the super premium wine list? The inclusive wine offerings from OZ & NZ are too... More

Best holiday destination. Unique and spectacular sights. Never seen better sunsets (try casurina Mountain ) and sunrises (try suicide hill!) mainly due to the location and the incredible staff who go beyond the call of a job to make it special. Location is one of a kind but so are the staff! Coming back for the after wet and villa... More

My husband and I have just spent 4 nights at Berkeley River lodge . Words cannot explain how beautiful this place is . From the minute we were picked up in the bus from Kununurra by our gorgeous pilot the experience begins . When you fly over Berkeley and you see where you are going to stay you can't help... More

Having stayed at a number of SLH of the world in the past (including similar high quality 'adventure breaks') our expectations were high and I am delighted to say we were not disappointed; indeed our expectations were surpassed. BRL does an amazing job, which is even more remarkable considering its remoteness and logistical challenges. Whether you like fishing, hiking, bird... More

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Berkley River Lodge and had a fantastic time. When we booked our visit we anticipated spending much of our time lazing by the pool. However when we arrived we realised there was so much to do and see that we ended up being quite busy exploring all that the... More

Expensive but worth it! An excellent alternative to a cruise as a way to see the Kimberley's in style. Helitouring, fishing, boat tours and exploring on foot all kept the days full, with evenings spent enjoying drinks on the lodge verandah with the magnificent view of the cliffs and river-mouth, then fine dining under the stars. All the staff were... More
