Metrics for southernoceanlodge calculated by Epicsta
IN • SIGHT There’s literally nothing between here and Antarctica - plenty of scope for daydreams.
YOU • BEAUTY! A record 600,000 voters contributed to @cntraveler’s 32nd annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey in 2019 and we're thrilled to share the news that Southern Ocean Lodge has been voted the best resort in @australia! Huge thanks to all the explorers, adventurers and guests for sharing what you love and for championing our clifftop lodge on @southaustralia’s wildly beautiful Kangaroo Island. #RCA2019
SUITE • SOPHISTICATION In the whiskey-toned Remarkable Suite, flames dance out of the coffee table, the ensuite is distinguished by a wooden bathtub and the well-stocked bar is wow-worthy. Outdoors a private spa invites a starlit soak au naturel; dare accepted.
SAFE • PASSAGE The magnificent structure that is the Cape Du Couedic Lighthouse has stood the test of time since 1909, guiding salty seafarers safely around the cape for generations. With its addition to the South Australian Heritage Register, all to come will be able to marvel at the tower that played such an important part in the history of Kangaroo Island. 📸 @nick.lutringer.photography
PERILOUS • WATERS At Weirs Cove on the island’s south coast, guests discover a derelict jetty where lighthouse keepers once landed supplies by flying fox, when they arrived every three months. That is, if they were lucky and the vessel carrying the goods made it to shore... 📷 @inbedwith.me
TOY • STORY Just because bath time should always be fun!
TASTE • KI Fast growing its reputation as a gourmet food bowl, Kangaroo Island is home to a diverse range of producers from free-range geese and lamb farmers to sustainable growers of abalone, oysters, marron and barramundi. The land’s best free-range eggs, pure Ligurian honey and world-class wines and spirits complete a menu of ingredients on offer each day at Southern Ocean Lodge.
SPACE • OUT The Southern Spa's lounge is one of those waiting rooms you'd be happy to never leave with a cosy fire and window framing the bay and coastal cliffs terraced into the distance; you can continue to soak up the aquatic views from your treatment room too, if you can keep your eyes open. 📷 @jamesgeer
ROLLING • FURY On the island’s south-west coast, the landscape becomes considerably wilder, the forests denser and the cliffs dramatically vertiginous. The ferocious swells roll in from Antarctica, claiming many vessels and lives in a madness to meet the shore. At the lodge, all the suites (other than the Osprey Pavilion), are named after the historic shipwrecks that regularly occurred in these dangerous waters. 📷 @jamesgeer
