Southern Ocean Lodge

Kangaroo Island, Australia

Getting back to nature can be luxurious -- just take a deep breath of the crisp, salty air blowing in from not-so-distant Antarctica at the Southern Ocean Lodge if you don’t believe us. Tucked into the rocky southwestern coast of Kangaroo Island, this lodge prides itself on sustainability. Features include a spa that uses Australian-made natural products, restaurants built on the philosophy of "produce to plate" and wildlife that roam free. Did we mention there's no TV? Talk about getting away.
