Unwind at Kittawa Lodge on King Island, Tasmania

Kittawa Lodge was dreamt up to be a place where busy people can unwind and breathe deeply – its island home, in fact, has some of the cleanest air in the world. Welcome to a unique new accommodation offering on Tasmania’s King Island, which lies, rugged and beautiful, off the state’s north-west coast (accessible by plane from the mainland or a 30-minute flight from Melbourne).

At Kittawa, two architecturally designed lodges sit snug in the sand dunes on the property’s 750 metres of coastline. The bespoke structures were made on mainland Tasmania from sustainable materials and feature charred timber cladding, which is inspired by a Japanese technique that provides a natural resistance to bushfires and is well equipped to weather the elements over time.

With sweeping views across the Bass Strait from every room, the two lodges are designed to maximise guests’ connection to the outdoors. The interiors feature luxurious bamboo linen, a handmade concrete bath and original artworks by renowned King Island-based artists.

And, of course, no Tassie experience would be complete without lashings of local produce, and King Island does it particularly well – it’s renowned for its seafood, cheese and beef.
