This 179-room hotel is gracefully combining vintage architecture and design with modern services and amenities, leaving its visitors with a never-forget experience that makes them wish come again. Staying here will give you a glimpse of royalty, especially if you choose its famous Four Seasons Experience which actually includes a private dinner on the centre stage at the Hungarian State Opera House followed by the concert of the orchestra playing only for you.

This incredible hotel is located on the Kangaroo Island and offers you a peaceful and cozy stay. Here in Southern Ocean Lodge you are able to choose between 21 suites, each of which contains an outdoor terrace and limestone floor. The hotel is built in a way that it uses all the natural weather patterns, so you won’t need an AC here. Once you enter the hotel, you’ll be able to see works of art on every step, which makes a kind of a small artistic exhibition. And if you want to have the full privacy, you can book the glass-walled suite with its own pool and a granite bath. When it comes to activities on the island, you can for instance go fishing and your catch can become your lunch with the help of the chef Tim Bourke.
