The Baillie Lodges commitment to the environment is best expressed by each lodge’s interaction with its local natural, cultural and community surroundings. A dynamic environmental management plan featuring state-of-the-art technologies steers lodge operations and ultimately enhances each guest’s experience of the destination as they see the daily power usage created by the futuristic solar panels lining the breezeway leading to the suites, and more.

99% of the land cleared in the construction of Southern Ocean Lodge is protected to guarantee its pristine state for future generations. Native vegetation clearing at Southern Ocean Lodge was minimised by using existing fire-trails or tracks.



The lodge is situated among national parks and conservation sanctuaries, and is a mecca for native wildlife. Boardwalks and walking tracks minimise the potential ‘edge effect’ of guest movements, and ensure the native flora continues to thrive.



Both the aspect and architectural design of the lodge were planned to maximise benefits of the lodge’s location and the destination’s natural weather patterns. Low-energy flow-through ventilation and double glazing offer natural acclimatisation in every season.



Water is harvested from all roof surfaces at Southern Ocean Lodge and stored in tanks with a total capacity in excess of 1.5 million litres. A key aim is to have the property rainwater self-sufficient nine out of every ten years.
