Designed to create an exclusive and intimate experience, Alkina Lodge offers the discerning traveller private luxury accommodation on the Great Ocean Road. Located at Wattle Hill on the Great Ocean Road, just 20 minutes from the 12 Apostles, 30 minutes to Port Campbell and less than 3 hours from Melbourne, Alkina Lodge is close to other major attractions including the Great Ocean Walk, the Great Otway National Park, Wreck Beach, The Redwoods, Apollo Bay and Johanna Beach. You’ll find Alkina Lodge the perfect base from which to explore the dramatic scenery, sweeping beaches and ancient rainforests the Great Ocean Road is renowned for. Enjoy stunning ocean views from the master bedroom of your lodge, wake up to the sight of kangaroos feeding just outside your bedroom window, and appreciate the abundance of native birdlife, from bold laughing Kookaburras and petit Blue Wrens, to Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and cheeky Magpies. On a clear night, our signature sky windows afford spectacular vision of the Milky Way; the celestial beauty is pristine as there is no ambient city light at Alkina Lodge.

We had a fantastic stay at this luxe property. It is high end all the way. The bedrooms are fresh with the main bedroom looking out over a green patch of grass which attracts grazing kangaroos each morning and evening. The kitchen is very well decked out so you can cook up your feast. The property is close to the 12 Apostles for visiting. A few points: Maybe I missed it when booking but breakfast items are provided. I don’t think the website clearly stated this as well as the booking documents. In any case it was a nice surprise to see some great produce and items waiting for us in the fridge for breakfast! It would be great to have a guide for the property in the lodge eg local walks; how to get the mountain bikes from the manager; where to go to eat/buy food, etc. Again no biggie as everyone is so connected via the internet these days. Overall though this place is still 5 star luxury. We would return...

We really enjoyed our stay at Alkina lodge. The lodge was beautiful, clean and modern. The main bedroom has a beautiful view of a field where there were kangaroos in the morning and afternoon. There is also a bit of a view of the ocean in the distance but it is limited and not what I would expect from a “sea view”. The hosts were very accomodating and were kind enough to let us plug in our electric car to the mains power which was a lifesaver. I would recommend bringing food and supplies with you because there are no shops nearby (although breakfast is provided).

Quite possibly one of the nicest, most modern places we've stayed along our travels. Nestled in a quiet, private locale, only a short-ish drive from civilisation. A real hidden gem. Would definitely recommend.

We highly recommend Alkina Lodge. The accommodations were top notch, we loved seeing the kangaroos grazing right off our back patio. We also highly recommend doing the Australian BBQ dinner. Cyndi & Jordan do an amazing job, the food was fantastic.

Fabulous place to stay on your Great Ocean Road drive. Remote but close to to the road and touching distance of the 12 Apostles in Australian terms. Accommodation is vast and very comfortable, plus Jordan and Cyndi on hand. Kangaroos on lawn, Wreck beach close by, great stay!
