The Southern Ocean Lodge is an architectural stunner with 21 cliffside suites that overlook the waters of Hanson Bay. The interior feels like a ship captain's home—the Great Room's curved wall of floor-to-ceiling windows also provides views of the bay; cozy, white-cushioned swivel chairs are oriented to the sea alongside blond timber tables.
With rooms named after local shipwrecks—more than 80 have been recorded here since 1836—the windows overlook the landscape and the bay from any spot in the suite.
