Escape to Australia’s third-largest island and follow the white gravel roads between undulating sheep farms where the glistening blue of the ocean dances on the horizon. If it’s romance you’re seeking, at Stowaway Kangaroo Island you’ll experience those heady honeymoon days all over again. Designed as the ultimate adults-only retreat, four luxurious Stowaways are spread across this 80ha regeneratively farmed property, each ensuring utter privacy. All the ingredients for a soul-replenishing stay are here: outdoor hot tub on your timber deck, cosy cantilever window seat, a double-sided wood burning fireplace and, in The Snug and The Hide, a glass-fronted sauna. Settle in with complimentary nibbles and sparkling wine on arrival and after whipping up a meal in the full chefs kitchen, settle down in front of the fire with a glass of port from the complimentary bar cart. Birdwatching gear and head torches are supplied to get the most out of your position, nudging Lathami Conservation Park, while just down the road you’ll find Stokes Bay – voted Australia’s best beach in 2023. But with in-room spa services, gin-tasting experiences and gourmet food hampers available as ad-ons, you’d be forgiven for staying in.
