Nature! Wildlife! Wilderness! A coastal national park surrounds the 250-acre, all-inclusive Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island (Australia's second largest). Twenty-one eco-friendly, casually chic suites are cantilevered off the cliff, each with a wooden tub, an ethanol-burning fireplace and a spectacular vista of Hanson Bay. Check out the Pavilion suite for romantic sunset-to-sunrise views. Elevated plank walkways protect the landscape and lead visitors around the property and toward the serene Southern Spa. The stand-alone spa pavilion is perched high atop a cliff and affords outstanding views of the Southern Ocean stretching toward the Antarctic, as well as a setting for respite and romance after the excitement of seeing koalas and kangaroos. The three-treatment-room facility features a steam room and chill lounge. The spa specializes in indigenous Li'tya rejuvenation and relaxation treatments inspired by the Aboriginal dreamtime.
