Like other reviewers, we visited Saffire and Wolgan Valley and Southern Lodge on this trip. Each frankly was magnificent in its own way, and each showed off a brilliant architectural design, leading-edge furnishings, top-class service and ecological sympathy ... basically all are real tributes to this recent evolution of luxury/ecology travel in Australia. Likewise, each of these three lodges provide...

It’s almost 10pm on a late summer’s night. The moon is starkly lit in a cloudless sky, and we’ve had our eyes glued to the antics of a young female koala for the past 15 minutes. She doesn’t seem to care that she’s bathed in glaring torch light with our I-Phones busy clicking away on her persona. She is busy...

A two night stop while "doing Australia". This was amazing from start to finish. I won't repeat what so many "Excellent Reviews" say. I urge you to believe them. This is fully inclusive splendour. All the many staff and guides are pleasant, enthusiastic, courteous, and a pleasure to chat with. The rooms (suites) are stunning with fantastic views of the...

We visited Saffire, Wolgan Valley, and Southern Ocean Lodge on the same trip. The activities at Southern Ocean Lodge were the best - we did the Remarkables, kangaroo kanapes, two visits to the Koala sanctuary (one at night, which was amazing), and then visited the sea lion sanctuary. We also did a great guided hike along the coast, which I'd...

Southern Ocean Lodge is the ultimate luxury experience. Beginning with the friendly greeting at the airport and informative guide in the ride to the lodge. The rooms are beautiful with an amazing ocean view. The food was so fresh and wholesome among the best food we have ever eaten. The tours were very well planned. The service is extraordinary. This...

Flying into Kangaroo Island early morning, and greeted by Southern Ocean Lodge with a warm welcome and a chilled towel is dreamlike. The beauty and tranquility is revealed during the transfer to the Lodge. Being greeted on arrival is like visiting old friends at their special hideaway. The building has been developed in sympathy with the environment, using local stone...

We stayed here in Feb 2015 for a couple of nights. Location is fantastic and the building totally blends in the landscape. Rooms are very comfortable with nice views. Used the spa where treatments are good. Activities offered by the hotel are nice, especially the "kanapes and kangaroos" one. The restaurant staff is very friendly and professional. Food and wines...

This is one of the most memorable hotels that I have ever stayed in. From a hot tub to great food and high end bikes. Everything is top drawer. If you can afford it you will not regret it. Many tours are included.

My wife and I stayed here in feb 2015 for a weekend away. It absolutely loved up to the marketing hype. The food was sensational- clean, simple, elegant and special all at once. The views were breathtaking and the overall resort gorgeous. The staff were friendly and welcoming, if a bit young and inexperienced at times. Overall - incredible!!

Quite enjoyed this safari style holidays where you see the typical Australian wildlife complimented with extraordinary service. We stayed for 2 nights but felt 3 nights minimum would be apt for a wonderful place like this and would make a great balance between exploration and relaxation. The staff if wonderful and made us try some local honey liqueur and local...
