Capella Lodge

Refreshingly off the grid, Capella Lodge is Lord Howe Island’s premium luxury retreat. Nestled at the foot of the island’s natural caretakers Mounts Gower and Lidgbird, Capella welcomes spectacular views of the ocean, subtropical reef and rolling green pastures.

A contemporary architectural design channels the carefree spirit of the Australian beach house, styled with custom furnishings, recycled timbers and island-inspired artworks. Generous indoor-outdoor lounging areas and a light-filled bar and restaurant bring the mesmerising views of ocean and mountains to the fore. Outside, Gowers Terrace offers luxurious lounging, ideal for relaxing or enjoying sunset drinks, while a horizon pool invites a languid dip.

Nine island-style guest suites offer a relaxed, barefoot luxury vibe designed to reflect Lord Howe’s pristine natural environment. Spacious, light-filled interiors feature stylishly appointed king beds and sleek basalt stone ensuite bathrooms. Wide doors open to an outdoor deck, many with inviting hot tub and daybed and endemic kentia palms framing idyllic island cameos.

World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island is a ‘treasure island’ preserved in time. Home to hundreds of rare and endemic species, any visit to the island has the sense of a National Geographic expedition. With Capella as one’s own basecamp, guests take to walking tracks to explore subtropical forests and white-sanded beaches. There are mountains to climb including to the summit of Mount Gower. Below, the clear, warm waters of the world’s southern-most coral reef are ablaze with the colour of corals and a riot of fish cruising the reef, perfect to discover by snorkel or glass bottom boat.

Dining at Capella is a celebration of the freshest local and regional produce, brought to the plate in a light, sophisticated style. Resting easily in its lofty setting among swaying palms, the Capella Spa invites dreamy surrender to island-inspired massages and beauty treatments.

Specialising in intimate residential conferences and leisure focused incentives, Capella Lodge offers the ultimate island castaway escape.
