Ecopia Retreat


Check In: 14:30|Check Out: 10:00

Ecopia Retreat is a boutique eco luxury accommodation, in a private wildlife sanctuary in Kangaroo Island. Immersed in 150 acres of natural wilderness, the property offers a unique nature experience, in a curated off-grid eco-luxury setting, with guest services showcasing the Island’s premium produce.

Ecopia was created with the environment in mind! From the ground up, with every bit of the design and build we had an eco approach front and centre. The land was not cleared. We did not disturb any native vegetation. We chose the sites for the Eco Villas based on how we could ‘sink’ them into the natural environment, harvest solar energy and maximise views. A solar-passive architectural design, created by the rammed-earth walls, double-glazed windows and simple eco principles. Ecopia is completely off-grid – using solar power and pure rainwater. We carefully curated an experience with zero to minimal footprint, yet in luxury!

The property offers exclusive use of three bespoke luxury retreats – two Eco Villas and the Ecopia Residence – providing guests with front row seats to one of Kangaroo Island’s most covetable wilderness escapes. Imagine yourself sitting on the deck with a glass of one of our famous Kangaroo Island wines, while listening to the wildlife and enjoying the splendour of the natural landscape, not a car to be heard, the hustle and bustle and noise of civilization gone!

Ecopia Retreat is a registered wildlife sanctuary, located on a vast private property in the centre of Kangaroo Island. An unparalleled wildlife experience on Kangaroo Island! During your stay, you will be immersed in the natural beauty surrounding your accommodation. We encourage you to step off the deck and explore around this stunning property, to see wildlife in the wild and deepen your experience of this magical place! The property allows exclusive access to the Eleanor River and offers a unique opportunity to explore the inland beauty, one that is rarely experienced by travellers to Kangaroo Island.

Villa Ada and Villa May. Understated Kangaroo Island Eco Luxury Accommodation.
Just two luxuriously appointed rammed earth eco villas, each graced by sweeping panoramic views of the natural surroundings and carefully sited to provide guests with an intimate, private experience in this wildlife sanctuary.

Each villa is stunningly crafted from rammed earth, and appointed with a luxurious king-size bed, and a freestanding bath. A contemporary open plan design boasting double glazed full height windows throughout, Spotted Gum floors and a charming log wood fireplace gives guests a truly unique eco-luxe immersive stay.

Combining eco-luxury with a quintessential Kangaroo Island nature experience. Meticulous attention to the design of the rammed earth villas has made it possible to achieve the softest footprint when it comes to luxury off-grid living. Warmth in the winter, coolness in the summer is harnessed within the surrounds of the monolithic 300mm thick rammed earth walls, while the full height double glazed windows bring the outside in.

Each villa is completely off-grid, using solar power and rainwater, and equipped for an eco-friendly luxurious self-contained stay on Kangaroo Island.
