A little bit about Kittawa Lodge

A secluded, ocean front 96-acre property on King Island, the award-winning Kittawa Lodge offers refined boutique accommodation, with panoramic views of the untouched rugged coastal landscape.

Completely off-grid, each lodge is architecturally designed to maximise your connection to the outdoors while minimising exposure to the elements. 

You can learn more about Kittawa Lodge here and our two luxurious lodges here.

A little bit about the package

Danielle will cook private dinners for guests in their lodge as well as a dinner offsite in an exclusive and unique location.  A selection of Tasmanian wines, beers and spirits are included throughout guests’ stay and matching Tasmanian wines will be served with each dinner.  

Every night, guests can learn from the award-winning chef as she takes you through her signature farm-to-table cooking, using the world-renowned and seasonal produce of King Island.  

A little bit about Danielle Alvarez

Danielle is an American-born chef living in Australia.  Moving in 2014, Danielle worked with restaurant group Merivale to launch Fred’s, a neighbourhood restaurant that broke the barrier between guest and chef.  

With Danielle anchoring her open kitchen in the middle of the restaurant, guests could feel like they stepped into a friend’s home.  

Danielle’s cooking focuses on using small scale organic producers for seasonal cooking, which aligns well with Kittawa Lodge’s ethos of storytelling through championing local produce.
