Capella Lodge is Lord Howe Island's premium, luxury retreat. Gently melding modern design into glorious natural surroundings, Capella's relaxed aesthetic lets the true star shine: views of the jaw dropping dramatic Mounts Gower and Lidgbird. A feeling of relaxed sophistication flows throughout with beach-chic furnishings, island-themed artworks and kentia palm fringed decks creating an easy ambience and barefoot luxury. Fine dining is a drawcard and the innovative menu showcases a bounty of local seafood and fresh regional produce. The verdant World Heritage site is a paradise of rainforests, reefs and beaches and is home to hundreds of rare and endemic species. Take to mountain walks, relax on white sandy beaches and explore the riot of submarine colour in the world's southernmost coral reef. Nine contemporary, island-styled suites provide a private retreat, stylishly appointed with fine linens, bespoke furnishings and commissioned artworks while a well-stocked in-suite bar offers a range of gourmet treats for lazily indulgent moments. Inspired by the carefree spirit of the Australian beach house and refreshingly off the radar, Capella Lodge brings the ultimate castaway escape to life.
