The Berkeley River Lodge, Kimberley Coast

A truly remote, luxury experience awaits at the Berkeley River Lodge on the pristine Kimberley Coast.

You’ll find Berkeley River Lodge atop a spectacular sand dune overlooking the Timor Sea, Reveley Island and the mouth of the Berkeley River. With no road access, just getting here is part of the adventure. You’ll arrive by private boat or chartered floatplane from Kununurra, and be welcomed into one of Australia’s most isolated retreats where modern life is exchanged for wide open spaces, abundant nature and barefoot luxury by the sea. From river cruises and gorge hikes to fishing for the mighty barramundi, enjoy as little or as much activity as you like.

Surrounded by native vegetation atop a coastal dune, each eco villa boasts a 180-degree ocean or river view, plenty of privacy and an open-air bathroom - for bathing in the Kimberley moonlight. The main lodge blends contemporary architecture and the environment, and incorporates both indoor and outdoor dining facilities alongside panoramic views of the coast and river mouth. Dining is a laidback affair with flavoursome European menus utilising the finest global ingredients. A 20-metre lap pool will satisfy those wanting to relax, with poolside lounges and a library providing a great excuse to catch up on some reading.
