About the listing
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.
Set amongst native forest, overlooking the Great Ocean Road, Alkina Lodge is your ideal luxury 12 Apostles accommodation. The three architecturally designed, four-bedroom luxury lodges are ideal for couples, families and groups of friends looking to escape to the unspoilt southwest coast of Victoria, who are looking to explore everything the Great Ocean Road region has to offer.
Each lodge has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and in total we can accommodate 2-24 guests based on double occupancy, or 1-12 guests based on single occupancy.
Alkina's fully self-contained lodges are fitted with only the most luxurious of features, including north facing windows to allow light to pour in, a stunning Gaggenau equipped kitchen, a bespoke wood fireplace, Nespresso coffee machines, Bang and Olufsen and Bose entertainment systems, fine European furniture, and a magnificent Villeroy & Boch bathtub with views of the night sky.
The luxury lodges were designed by award winning architects, Glenn Murcutt and Wendy Lewin, and are the only houses in the world they have designed that are available for short stay rental. ‘Touch the earth lightly’ is Glenn Murcutt’s creed, and this is reflected in the architecture of the lodges.

Alkina Lodge is the closest luxury accommodation to the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road. It has been designed and built with sensitivity to the local landscape, and compliments the surrounding natural environment. Heating is passively solar, supplemented by gas fired hydronics, underfloor heating in the bathrooms, as well as the bespoke fireplace. The lodges ‘breathe’ and can get chilly, so in winter, please bring appropriate clothing. Likewise, in summer, cooling comes from the southern ocean breeze, expansive screened doors and windows, and venting hot air up through the roof. This is supplemented by Dyson bladeless fans. There is no air-conditioning.
