The Kimberley

Berkeley River Lodge

51 Carnarvon St.
The Kimberley, Australia
TEL: 61-8-9169-1330
It takes more than 24 hours of travel from the U.S.—including three connections, plus a jaunt in a floatplane—to get to Berkeley River Lodge, on the Kimberley Coast, in Western Australia. The payoff? Barefoot luxury in one of the most remote places on earth. Twenty stylishly spare villas are set on massive sand dunes that rise 200 feet above the Timor Sea, each with alfresco bathrooms and cantilevered patios that overlook otherworldly gorges. Go on a naturalist-led hike through the surrounding grasslands, or better yet, explore King George Sound and Mitchell Falls with a ride in the hotel’s private helicopter.

Room to Book:

Most romantic room? Villa 20. Naturally it’s the most remote, with only one neighbor and overlooking three miles of deserted beach.

Insider Tip:

Some 50 different species of fish can be caught in the river, the coastal mangroves, and the Timor Sea. They include barramundi, mangrove jack, threadfin salmon, Spanish mackerel, tuna, and shark.
