Reservations went live for stays at the new-look Southern Ocean Lodge last week, as works continue on the rebuild of the award-winning luxury lodge on the wild southwest coast of Kangaroo Island. Southern Ocean Lodge is set to reopen late this year on December 6.
There were three easy ways to make a booking at Southern Ocean Lodge:
- Call the Baillie Lodges reservations team on 02 9918 4355
- Email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Book online at www.southernoceanlodge.com.au.
The reservations launch was preceded by an online auction campaign for ‘first in’ stays at the property, with funds raised for three community organizations, The Maggie Beer Foundation, The Royal Flying Doctor Service, and the KI Country Education Fund, proceeds raised reached a total of $43,000.
There’s a lot to explore at the new-look lodge. Southern Ocean Lodge’s original architect, Max Pritchard, and his team led the recreation of the property and included all the features the Lodge’s guests have loved best, along with some considered extras, ready for a new era of travel on Kangaroo Island.
With the same generous inclusions as the original – all dining, drinks, and signature experiences for starters – the new Southern Ocean Lodge also had almost the same footprint as the first, with 25 luxurious guest suites easing along the coastline.
New to the property was the ultra-premium Ocean Pavilion, cleverly designed to offer a single owner’s residence or two separate suites to create the ultimate Kangaroo Island hideaway for families and friends traveling together. The Great Room terrace now boasted a wet-edge pool, while spacious new surrounds for the Southern Spa allowed for three treatment rooms, a gymnasium, sauna, and hot and cold plunge pools.
Sustainability is core to the design of Southern Ocean Lodge, and cutting-edge technologies will boost water capture and solar power generation. The team have also planted a buffer of native succulents to enhance the lodge’s seamless connection with the environment.
