Regarded as the most beautiful island in the Pacific, Lord Howe Island is a remote idyllic paradise lying off the East coast of Australia, perfectly preserved and listed as a world heritage site for its undeniable beauty. Luxurious living and nature go hand in hand here, with an abundance of rare birds, plants and marine life. Dramatic mountains, spectacular beaches and one of the best diving sites in the world, Lord Howe Island has no shortage of things to do.
Lord Howe is a convenient 2 hour flight from Sydney. Capella Lodge is situated in the centre of Lord Howe Island and only takes a 15 minute walk from the airport or an extremely quick 2 minute drive down the road. You can land, unpack and set foot on the beach within the hour, making your transfer as effortless as possible. The coastal location provides stunning views of the Tasman Sea, and with the soaring twin-peaks of Mount Gower and Lidgbird on your doorstep it’ll be hard not to let that jaw drop.
The Capella Lodge has nine authentically Australian beach house suites. All suites come complete with king-sized beds, a bar, wireless internet, en-suite bathroom and bespoke furnishings. The Makambo Loft features your very own plunge spa as well as a mezzanine and private verandah for you to enjoy those awe-inspiring views. The Lidgbird Pavilion comes complete with a wrap-around verandah, bar, plunge pool and a banquette lounge, so whatever your choice, you’re in for a treat.
