The owners, managers and staff of Southern Ocean Lodge have managed to grasp and promote a fine balance between first class creature comforts and an amazingly beautiful natural environment.
Firstly, and most importantly, this has been achieved by the owners in employing an architect who has designed a sensational sleeping, eating and relaxation space in which guests can interact and enjoy themselves within the surrounding stunningly natural space.
Secondly, without the exceptionally well trained staff, this balance would be tipped over.
Tony and I returned from this adventure yesterday and we are still discussing our time there.
What was very important to us (having stayed in other luxury resorts over the years) was the incredibly natural, polite and interesting attitude of all the staff at the lodge. We felt completely at home from the moment we set foot inside those wonderful tall timber doors!
The restaurant staff were relaxed, well acquainted with the intricasies of the menu and very attentive.
The chef was adept in producing food that was unique both in flavour and design. Every morsel was savoured. Thank you.
The staff who conducted the tours (especially Jess) emanated a wealth of knowledge, constant observation of bush activity with a happy, natural style.
Thank you all for a very happy time.
Cathryn and Tony
