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.

My husband I stayed at Capella Lodge for a week in December 2014. We had the most relaxing and wonderful time where I felt very spoilt by the fabulous staff who took care of my every wish. The food was fantastic with lovely servings - not too much, so I could have desert! I loved the breakfasts where you served... More

This was our 3rd visit to LHI and our 2nd to Capella Lodge - there's a saying once you've stayed at the best... Managers Libby, Mark and their team welcomed us like old friends and we were lucky with some great weather, although a little too hot at times! (there is no AC on the Island by law) The food...

Arrival shaped our experience, sat gazing at the imposing Mt Gower, champagne being poured and a tasty treat at hand, we where overwhelmed by how this lodge framed the beauty of this island paradise. Silent is not something I am accused of often, though in awe of the natural beauty it felt...right. Staff attentive and thought full. Now hooked, planning... More

what an incredible place! Such amazing service service, and the couple that run the resort have truly made this place special! Amazing food, service, rooms, views, activities and hospitality! The rooms are beautiful and spacious with beautiful luxury furnishings, which also reflect the atmosphere of the lodge. A true luxury lodge and a gem on Lord Howe Island!
