Reward and Incentive Destination: Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island


Widely acclaimed as Australia's Galapagos, Kangaroo Island is home to an abundance of native wildlife and spectacular natural attractions. Covering almost 4,500 square kilometres it is Australia's third largest island and offers the best of the mainland on a smaller, more intimate scale. With more than one third of the island declared as Conservation or National Park, visitors readily come face-to-face with prolific bird and animal species such as New Zealand fur seals, koalas, kangaroos and much, much more. Flanked by the indomitable Southern Ocean, dramatic coastal vistas and sculptured landscapes lay unspoiled by development and riddled with sheer limestone cliffs, sheltered coves, rocky headlands and deserted stretches of sugar-white sand.


Southern Ocean Lodge aims to provide an iconic accommodation experience on Kangaroo Island and is designed to be a sanctuary of comfort, style and personal intimacy, redefining the Australian standard. Set back from a cliff above the pounding surf the sensitive design showcases a full frontal panorama and is within easy reach of all of Kangaroo Island's major attractions. Modern luxury and design integrity meld with Kangaroo island vernacular and an amazing coastal colour palette, creating a unique eco chic style.

The Restaurant at the Lodge features contemporary Australian cuisine, showcasing the freshest island and local seasonal produce. A convivial open bar and walk-in cellar highlight premium South Australian wines and beers whilst elegant interiors and personal service ensure a memorable dining experience

Other areas include the Great Room, the design pinnacle of the Lodge featuring floor to ceiling glass windows with full frontal panoramas and a sumptuous array of lounge choices, outdoor seating areas and a heated wet-edge plunge pool. The Baudin Lounge is another serene and private place to escape, read a book, watch a movie, enjoy a nature presentation or challenge a friend to aboard game! Featuring a comprehensive reference library, interpretive display, movie and game library, the lounge can also be used for intimate meetings and events. Capacity: 20 boardroom / 40 theatre style.


Twenty-one luxe suites endowed with imposing views of the Southern Ocean cantilever along the coast, creating the ultimate fusion between a breathtaking wilderness setting and unbridled creature comforts.

Interiors feature lavish King beds, sunken lounge, dramatic glass walled bathroom and outdoor terrace with occasional seating and daybed. Rates include full gourmet breakfast, light lunch, 4-course dinner with inspired daily menu, selected alcoholic and all non-alcoholic beverages.


Southern Ocean Lodge offers guests a complete and personal Kangaroo Island experience. A signature itinerary of guided excursions is designed daily and included in the tariff, allowing guests to encounter abundant wildlife in a 'zoo without fences' and discover the Island's unique natural attractions, often with exclusive access and always with a touch of luxe.

The Lodge guide introduces sea lions at sunrise, guides an exploration of the vast labyrinth of nearby Kelly Hill Caves, and leads a heavenly navigation of the Southern sky from the comfort of the stargazing platform. For dedicated island exploration, excellent private charters are also available.

Southern Spa

Housed in its own stunning pavilion, the Southern Spa is an intimate and private oasis of calm set amongst coastal drama. A signature spa menu offers a range of Li’tya rejuvenation and relaxation treatments, inspired by the Aboriginal dreamtime. Three treatment rooms, a steam room and chill lounge offer the ultimate pampering experience.

Southern Ocean Lodge is contemporary in design, extremely green to boot and will redefine benchmarks for luxury travel and sustainable tourism development in Australia and the Asia Pacific. Its location, stunning views, contemporary environmental design, locally sourced food and beverages, personalized interpretative activities and modern wellness spa ensures its status as a South Australian icon.
