About Berkeley River Lodge

Tucked between the Timor Sea and its namesake river on an isolated portion of Western Australia’s Kimberly Coast, the Berkeley River Lodge is as remote as it gets. The Lodge is a bastion of luxury in the middle of one of the world’s last true wildernesses. Berkeley can only be reached by air (it has its own landing strip) or by traveling along the coast by boat. The nearest town, Wyndham, is 150 km away. Guests in the Berkeley’s villas are treated to views of the sea and the river - and, of course, the unbelievably scenic sunrises and sunsets. The main choice that guests are confronted with is whether they want a river view villa or ocean view accommodations. Ocean View Villas are set on dunes overlooking the coast and the mouth of the river. Each room has a king size bed, air condition ...
Tucked between the Timor Sea and its namesake river on an isolated portion of Western Australia’s Kimberly Coast, the Berkeley River Lodge is as remote as it gets. The Lodge is a bastion of luxury in the middle of one of the world’s last true wildernesses. Berkeley can only be reached by air (it has its own landing strip) or by traveling along the coast by boat. The nearest town, Wyndham, is 150 km away. Guests in the Berkeley’s villas are treated to views of the sea and the river - and, of course, the unbelievably scenic sunrises and sunsets. The main choice that guests are confronted with is whether they want a river view villa or ocean view accommodations. Ocean View Villas are set on dunes overlooking the coast and the mouth of the river. Each room has a king size bed, air conditioning, and a private open-air bathroom. The en suite facilities include a dual vanity and free-standing tub (the perfect setting for a romantic moonlight soak). Each Ocean View Villa has a private deck with lounge chairs and daybeds. Wireless internet access is available throughout all the rooms. The decor enhances the sense of balance between the rustic surroundings and the luxury that this Kimberley resort provides for its guests. The River View Villas are similarly equipped, though, as their name suggests, they offer inland panoramas. Room service is provided to all villas. Meals can also be enjoyed at the Dunes Restaurant. Featuring artisan foods and fresh baked breads, the Dunes would not be out of place alongside the best high-end eateries in Sydney or Melbourne. The head chef, Paul Seymour, has plenty of experience bringing world class ingredients to remote locations. Berkeley River Lodge can accommodate wedding parties of up to 40 people. If you want to experience the grandeur of nature in an intimate setting, this is the place for you. You can fly your guests in for a wedding weekend. The lodge’s 20 villas can host up to 40 people in total. The Berkeley’s coordinator can help plan and procure everything necessary for a memorable wedding in this un-matchable location. Whether they are visiting for a special occasion or not, Berkeley’s guests can enjoy a wide range of activities. Outdoor options include river cruises, nature hikes, fishing expeditions, catered wilderness picnics, sea turtle walks, and rides in 4x4s or even a helicopter. After the day’s adventures are over, guests can head back to the Lodge to enjoy a sunset cocktail. Other options include a stay as part of a cruise package. Guests who are sailing along the Western Australia coastline can enjoy a four-day stay at Berkeley either before or after their ocean journey. Additional packages are also available in season.
