Did a trip to south australia and friends recommended staying here because of what it had to offer. The food, wine, service was all class, the property itself was very stylish. When when you arrive until you leave it feels like you are in paradise

Spent a weekend here with my wife. Can't say enough. The food was fantastic, service great, property was beyond expectation and the rooms gorgeous. Definitely a bucket list kind of place to visit. All the food and wine is local or South Australian. Sooo good.

There are not enough works to describe our experience here and the rating is not high enough either. It a 10! The setting, lodge architecture and styling, comfort, hospitality, food and wine quality, local knowledge, Eco-interpreters, I could keep going on and on, all 10!

I stayed at Southern Ocean Lodge with a family group of 7 adults in March 2016. From the moment we walked in the door we knew we were in somewhere very special. The views, the rooms, the food and activities were all excellent. The quiet efficiency of the staff was also amazing. This is what service is all about. My... More

Beautiful, beautiful lodge in a secluded part of Kangaroo Island. Fabulous staff. Every possible guest need taken care of. Amazing building. Incredible food. Wonderful wines. Great tours. Idyllic spa. The all inclusive nature of SOL really works.

Once you recover from the spectacular view from The Great Room at the Lodge and settle into your beautifully designed suite, it will probably be time for a cocktail or three from the extraordinarily generous open bar, followed by yummy food, mostly locally produced and artfully presented. Included experiences provide a good taste of what Kangaroo Island is about, the... More

I love this place - everything about this place! The suites are stunning, the sights and sounds are simply amazing all through the day, and the service is excellent. I spent two nights here in November 2015 and just couldn't wait to come back. I would recommend visiting during the cooler months for the best experience. I was there late... More

My wife and I enjoyed our three-night KI Classic package immensely! The only thing lacking was our own foresight in not booking an additional night! The Ocean Retreat room was the perfect accommodation. The wildlife tours, clifftop walk, and Kangas and Canapes were all quite enjoyable and expertly led. The meals were varied, excellently prepared and presented, and often offered... More
