Contemporary in design and green in attitude, this lodge sits on a sparsely populated island 30 minutes by plane from Adelaide. The 21 spacious suites have limestone floors, pieces by local artisans, and outdoor terraces. Air-conditioning is unnecessary: the property was constructed to take advantage of natural weather patterns. Owners James and Hayley Baillie developed only one percent of their total acreage on the wildlife-filled isle, leaving the rest of the land in a preservation trust. Guests learn about the resort’s sustainability policy upon check-in, underscoring the Baillies’ appreciation of the landscape’s natural beauty.
