Southern Ocean Lodge

Hanson Bay Sanctuary
Kangaroo Island , New South Wales , Australia

The 21 spacious suites cascade down a ragged cliff face overlooking remote Hanson Bay; they’re outfitted with limestone floors, artwork by island artisans, and outdoor terraces complete with daybeds. Though owners James and Hayley Baillie purchased a nice swath of the wildlife-filled island, they developed only 1 percent of their total acreage, leaving the rest of the land in a trust to protect it against future development. Each guest is informed of the resort's sustainability policy upon check-in, underlining how integral conservation of the surrounding environment is to the resort's philosophy.
