South Australia is home to three of Australia's top luxury resorts: The Southern Ocean Lodge, The Louise and Arkaba.
The Very Best
Enjoy the best of the best: South Australia is home to three of Australia’s most luxurious retreats: Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island, The Louise in the Barossa, and Arkaba in the Flinders Ranges. All three are members of Luxury Lodges of Australia.
Southern Ocean Lodge
Southern Ocean Lodge is an exclusive, luxury accommodation on Kangaroo Island. It is located on a cliff with spectacular views of Hanson Bay.
Each suite looks out to the Southern Ocean and is completely surrounded by bushland. The remote, wild location is matched by intimate service with modern architecture and plush comforts.
This is brilliantly showcased in the Lodge’s huge open lounge and dining area where you’ll enjoy first class food (all ingredients are locally-sourced) and fine South Australian wines.
The Louise is the top resort in the Barossa. It’s a luxury vineyard retreat surrounded by hundreds of acres of grapevines.
The Louise has 15 suites and offers a private experience that brings together the very best of the Barossa’s food, wine and hospitality.
A stay at The Louise is made extra-special with a meal at its restaurant Appellation, regarded as one of Australia’s finest regional dining experiences.
Arkaba is at the foot of the dramatic Chace Range in the Flinders Ranges. It offers an exclusive experience for a maximum of up to 10 guests a time on its entire 100mi2.
Early morning safari drives reveal remarkable wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies and emus, and breathtaking views of the surrounding ranges.
On warm evenings when cocktails are served, lounge in the outdoor pool and watch the light fading on the Chace Range.
