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

Capella Lodge is simply one of the very best places we have EVER stayed! Anywhere! What's there not to like about a most attentive staff, exremely good food, a 'killer' view, and a small luxury hotel, all set on an uncrowded island of friendly people. We particularly enjoyed some very good snorkeling, bike rides to 'town', and chats with other... More

My wife and I just returned from a three day stay at Capella. This was our third trip to the magical lord Howe Island but our first at Capella. From the relaxed and generous welcome from mark and the early checkin to our room, it was a superb experience and worth the substantial cost. Our lagoon loft was well appointed,... More

First visit to Lord Howe Island and first time lucky. Impeccable service, fine gastronomy in idyllic surroundings. Mark and Libby are attentive and friendly managers, forever giving good advice. It is five star all the way for a holiday you will never forget. As much as I want to keep it a secret, I have to share the love.
