All suites welcome uninterrupted views of sky and sea and the seemingly unending vegetation that blankets the inland. The panoramas all say 'rugged, raw, untamed' but inside, every feature is sophisticated, whether it’s the architectural grandeur or smaller design details like heated limestone floors, rain showers and soft linens. The perfect paradox...
March 29, 2008: The rusted steel doors of the lodge open to welcome the first guests, the Norton’s, from Queensland to reveal the mod-meets-magnificent retreat beyond. James and Hayley Baillie truly, deeply believed ‘if they built it, they would come’ - and they did! In the decade just gone, the enduring design by the KI-born architect Max Pritchard has hosted more than 37,000 guests from 40 countries, put Kangaroo Island on the world’s stage and been credited as a pioneer of experiential luxury lodging in Australia. To all who supported the dream, contributed to the project - thank you! To our dedicated lodge managers and team past and present, you transcend the experience from hotel to home - we salute you! #SOL10andtimeless Australia.com South Australia Authentic Kangaroo Island Luxury Lodges of Australia
