Two years after Baillie Lodges’ award-winning flagship property Southern Ocean Lodge was razed in the Kangaroo Island bushfires, the rebuild of the globally celebrated luxury lodge is well underway with bookings at the new-look Southern Ocean Lodge, dubbed ‘SOL 2.0’, now open in anticipation of the grand reopening on December 6, 2023.

South Australian architects Max Pritchard Gunner have created innovative plans for SOL 2.0 that combine the timeless features of the original with grand new features designed to raise the bar of the Baillie Lodges’ guest experience of the wildly beautiful island. New to the property is the ultra-premium Ocean Pavilion, cleverly designed to offer a single owner’s residence or two separate suites to create the ultimate Kangaroo Island hideaway for families and friends travelling together. The Great Room terrace now boasts a wet-edge pool, while spacious new surrounds for the Southern Spa allow for three treatment rooms, a gymnasium, sauna and hot and cold plunge pools.

The new operation will once again be a champion of South Australian and KI suppliers of food and beverages, where a commitment to using exclusively local produce is a veritable boon to the regional economy whilst offering guests a genuine sense of place, a concept essential to the Baillie Lodges guest experience.
