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!

There is a reason why this resort has 5 stars and it is due to their incredible service and perfect location. We loved the quality of food and overall intimate service we received. The general manager and his wife have been at the resort for 10 years and have created something very special and unique. The island itself is incredibly... More

Can't praise Capella enough- everything about it made for a superb and relaxing holiday. The setting - both the island and the resort, the staff,the rooms, the food and our hosts, Libby and Mark added up to perfect. Even the inclement weather which was really disappointing couldn't spoil our first Christmas away from home because the resort was so comfortable... More

We stayed here for four nights as part of a two-week long honeymoon in Australia. After an epic journey from London, we arrived groggy and exhausted, but the trip couldn't have got off to a better start, with the hotel managers, Mark and Libby whisking us away from the airport and to Capella Lodge's lounge where we were handed a...

Service was mostly outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. The food and service the first night was amazing, but just terrible the 2nd night (Mark and Libby... More

Lord Howe Island and Capella Lodge had my wife and me saying "wow" so many times that it became the word that we used all of the time while on the island. Lord Howe Island provides a spectacular setting and Capella Lodge takes advantage of its location and therefore has the amazing scenery as its backdrop. Our room was a... More
