Located on Australia's lush Kangaroo Island, Southern Ocean Lodge is an ultra-luxe, intimate, and modern hotel that sits secluded on a long stretch of clifftop overlooking a mesmerizingly blue ocean. And if that sounds like a place you'd want to spend a few nights, you're in luck. Because they're offering an exclusive package for Fodor's readers only.
Their Remarkable Retreat package includes four nights in the hotel for the price of three, as well as a hamper of KI gourmet treats, a spa treatment, and a certificate for a Bespoke Experience. The package starts at AUD$2,970 (about $2,950) per person. And for Fodor's readers, they're tacking on a complimentary suite upgrade, which saves up to AUD$5,600 per couple. The deal is valid for travel through December 16, 2012. To book, call +61 2 9918 4355 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and mention Fodor's.
Those prices include all dining, with open bar as well as your in-suite bar, signature Kangaroo Island experiences, and airport transfers.
The only complaint we anticipate is that four nights simply isn't long enough.
Insider's Tip: Every meal at Southern Ocean Lodge is diary-worthy, but pay particular attention to breakfast and sunset drinks. At breakfast, don't miss KI's famous Ligurian honey and make sure to look up from your meal to watch the day unfold along the coast, as breakfast is served at window-front tables. Then, at sunset, join fellow hotel guests in the lodge or outside in the field for a fresh, seasonal cocktail while you watch the sun go down.
