Everybody who enters the reception area of the Southern Ocean Lodge is speechless and breathless. The view is the most spectacular I have ever seen as the lodge is perched about 20 stories on the cliff of Kangaroo Island overlooking the beaches and the wild surf of the Southern Ocean.
Each Suite is equally spectacular with an enormous walk in closet, a large sleeping area with controls to open and close the window treatments, a beautiful living room area with chairs and sofas, and a bathroom area that also wows you with an enormous open shower facing the ocean as well as a large soaking tub. There is also a private outdoor area with a queen size bed for lounging.
All of your meals and liquor are included in the room rate and the service and food are superb. If one does not desire the daily menu there is an additional standard menu with salads, pasta and comfort foods always available The daily home made ice cream and sorbet choices are an added treat. Within an hour of our arrival most of the staff knew who we were.
The daily excursions are included with choices of hikes, bike rides, touring what are called the Remarkable Rock Formations, the sea lion and seal colonies and of course getting to see lots of kangaroos, wallabies and Koala bears. Some of the excursions are during the day and others are at dusk as the kangaroos and Koala bears are nocturnal.
The Southern Ocean Lodge is ranks in the top three of 6 star resorts that we have ever been to. It was worth every penny. We were there three nights but wish we could have stayed longer. What a hidden gem.
