Capella Lodge - At a Glance

Celebrated as the pinnacle of luxury on World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island, Capella Lodge rests atop romantic Lovers' Bay, at the foot of the imperious mountain twins rising dramatically above. An inspired architectural design welcomes spectacular views of the ocean, reef and mountains into the lodge.

A feeling of relaxed sophistication flows throughout, attracting the discerning experiential traveller and guests seeking a civilised sub-tropical island escape.

Capella’s nine contemporary island-style suites are designed to complement Lord Howe’s pristine natural environment.

A short flight from Australia’s east coast transports visitors to a real ‘treasure island’, a paradise lost in time and perfectly preserved. Guests may take mountain walks, relax on white-sanded beaches and explore the riot of marine colour in the world’s southern-most coral reef.

Inspired by the carefree spirit of the authentic Australian beach house, suites feature lavish king beds, beach-chic furnishings and generous decks. This is barefoot luxury at its best.

Fine dining in the Lodge Restaurant showcases a bounty of local seafood and fresh regional produce. Guests unwind in the petite Capella Spa with its menu of signature treatments for complete relaxation.

Luxurious surrounds, exceptional island-inspired dining and unforgettable ‘first-name’ service combine to create an outstanding lodging experience.

Capella Lodge sets world-class standards of exclusive luxury on Lord Howe.

'One explanation for the almost Edenic purity of Lord that visitors are capped to a minimum of 400 at a time, a lucky 20 of whom get to stay at Capella Lodge, an unexpectedly luxurious yet laid-back hideaway.' Marion Hume, Time Magazine
