What a glorious place to stay, we were made to feel at home the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble for the manager Kym. Perfect location, lovely rooms, with complimentary wifi and free mini bar. We had a great time at Lonely Bay and would recommend it to anyone travelling to this area. This is the first lodge...

What a wonderful place, luuxury but homley at the same time. We booked this lovely lodge for an early 60th get away, what a treat. Kym greated us with homemade cake & tea, what a warm friendly host. Then she took us to our room, Kym had up graded us, the room was fantastic, with the most amazing private terrace.... More

Utmost luxury is a place, where I feel as comfortable as at home. The real valuables of this mightily gorgeous place are the really friendly while unsophisticatedly staff, that made our stay totally relaxing and charming all the time. We really loved it here, literally one of the best places in the world, we had the pleasure to stay.

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in this gorgeous lodge. It was restful, welcoming and very beautiful. We had a wonderful time made so by the fabulous host Kym Trapski. She was exceptional, nothing was a problem and the ambience was truly exceptional. The breakfast was to die for - delicious!!

I have always believed that “perfection” was unattainable, existing as a purely conceptual state—that is, until my stay at the Lonely Bay Lodge. The Lodge itself is beautiful; the pictures on the website pale in comparison to the real deal. The breakfasts are sumptuous and delicious. I can’t think of one amenity that was overlooked. But even beyond the stunning... More
