Nestled atop a spectacular sand dune in one of the last true wilderness areas on Earth, is the luxurious Berkeley River Lodge. Accessible only by air or by boat, this completely secluded retreat offers an indulgent outback experience with a breath-taking view of the Timor Sea on the Kimberley Coast. 

Boasting twenty luxury villas perfectly positioned along a 65 metre high dune, this private wilderness escape is perfect for the ultimate couples getaway or a super special honeymoon. Commanding 180-degree panoramas of sweeping vistas, from Joseph Bonaparte Gulf to Reveley Island, this really is bare foot luxury by the sea at its best.

At Berkeley River Lodge you can enjoy as much or as little activity as you like. Choose from a varied selection of activities including a boat cruise along the coast or down the Berkeley River where you can encounter waterfalls, birdlife and even crocodiles, or take a more relaxed pace and spend time walking along pristine uninhabited beaches or simply enjoying the unprecedented views from your villa’s spacious balcony. For something truly special, take to the skies in a helicopter for a remote wilderness picnic or perhaps a spot of heli-fishing - a truly unforgettable experience.

Designed to blend contemporary architecture with the unique Kimberley coast environment, the main lodge is just a short stroll from your villa. Here you can indulge in the lodge’s restaurant, combining flavours as rich as the surrounding scenery, cool off in the 20 metre lap pool or take a book or magazine from the lodges library and find a comfortable spot to sit back and read. 

Each of Berkeley’s ocean view villas are surrounded by native vegetation, making each one completely private from your neighbours. A touch of luxury adorns each villa with luxurious interiors designed to mimic the surrounding landscapes colours and materials. Not only does each beautiful villa boast 180 degree ocean or river views, they also feature a king sized bed and open-air ensuite, complete with dual vanities and a free-standing bath tub for bathing under the stars. Beyond the dramatic glass frontage you will find occasional seating and a daybed on your deck, beckoning you to laze away an afternoon.

Note: There is no mobile phone coverage at Berkeley River Lodge. Please note that the lodge is closed between November and February each year.
