Lord Howe Island & Capella Lodge is the ideal place for relaxation, the minute we were greeted at the airport I knew we had made the right decision, it was all so friendly and easy. Capella and the staff are wonderful can't do enough for us. The food and wine are just another thing that makes this place amazing. You... More

I finally bit the bullet and booked Capella having been to LHI several times and wanting to try Capella but it was either unavailable or not suitable. Arrival: Libby was on meet and greet and as the only arrival on the flight I was whisked away quickly and the next time I saw my luggage was in my suite. On... More

If you like to be one with nature but have all the luxuries, then Capella Lodge is ideal. Its a small hotel and the managers Libby and Mark run a fantastic service - making you fell relaxed and at home from the minute they pick you up to the drop off at the airport. Nothing is too much trouble. The... More

Capella Lodge with its 9 lodges, all with magnificent views of Mt Gower and adjacent mountains just down the road is a truly luxury resort. Breakfasts and Dinners with all drinks after 6pm are included, and the service of the staff is first class. The dinners are a series of fantastic creations starting with the evening cocktail, through to hors... More

My partner and I stayed at Capella Lodge just last week and I'm already missing all the comforts. From pick up at the airport (actually, before you even arrive) to the moment you are dropped off to leave, everything is taken care of. Canapes on arrival with champagne and a discussion on what you plan to do while you are... More

Nothing can compare to the plunge pool over looking the towering peaks and the hot tub is mandatory. Internet intermittent and suites furnished rustically but with a lovely terrace. Be prepared to disconnect from technology. Food inclusive in rate and very good. The beach is a short walk or bike ride from Capella. Found sitting with a glass of wine... More

We had an unforgettable experience on Lord Howe from beginning to end. The Capella Lodge team make you feel welcome guests at their breathtaking hideaway. It's really a place to get away from the hassles of everyday life (you don't have a choice as there is no mobile reception on the island and very little internet connectivity). It's a place... More

The island The island is amazing. Remote, unspoilt, with less than 400 people living on it - this is complete isolation. There are no shops, no bars, no restaurants (one cafe) - just a few very small hotels, you, and nature. If you are looking for professional beach access, loungers, beach service etc this is not the right island for... More

If you are looking for a luxury lodge, totally remote, peaceful and elegant, you will find it in Capella Lodge on LHI. This 9 room gem is special in every way. The views from our duplex suite with terraces on both levels were outstanding from both inside the room and on the terrace. Our suite, the makomba loft, was furnished... More
