On paper, Kittawa Lodge ticks all the boxes of luxury redefined by isolation and sustainability; two private one-bedroom lodges tucked into 96-acre property on King Island with only the local red necked wallabies, wild peacocks, and sea eagles for company. Beyond aesthetics, which are supreme, no detail has been overlooked, from the exclusive locally-made body wash to the biodegradable slippers. There’s yoga mats, a picnic rug and hamper, warm jackets for adventures, books and board games and a private chef on call. Sink into the handmade concrete bath in this untouched environment and you’ll start to recalibrate. You’ll see the stars more clearly. Your food will taste better, and not just because it’s from the bountiful land on which you sit. And you’ll leave feeling like you’re a part of the family, without any of the kitsch B&B connotations.
Things we love
“People arrive tightly-wound, firing off question after question. But by day two their speech slows down… all of a sudden their itinerary with 10 things per day starts to go by the wayside”
~ Aaron Suine, Kittawa Lodge
