We eloped here to Capella Lodge, Lord Howe Island, in 2006 and had a wonderful wedding - one that involved Capella's managers as witnesses and the Island's Deputy Administrator taking on the role of Celebrant. Capella Lodge was very a special place then and it's still a very special place now, 10 years later. The excellent service, lovely rooms, delicious... More

For years friends raved about how beautiful, unspoiled and magical this small, volcanic outcrop, World Heritage listed, paradise island is and we had it on our bucket list. However, being part of New South Wales our home state, and only a 2 hour flight away, we had neglected coming as opposed to venturing farther afield. What a mistake! There aren't... More

Great food, wonderful service, lovely fine dining restaurant, innovative a la carte menu, would easily meet and exceed in many cases Sydney top restaurant standard. The superb service of their capable and professional staff deserves another mention - it's warm and welcoming and delivered with character and style. Loved pre dinner drinks as we had a range of totally innovative... More

Can't say enough positive things about the Capella or Lord Howe Island. We went for our anniversary earlier this year and had the best time. The Lodge and the service in particular really made the trip special. Everyone goes well out of their way to make sure you are having the best time possible (whatever that might be for you)....

Lord Howe is a beautiful, unspoilt island. There are plenty of hikes, the beaches are clear and it is a super relaxed type of place. Capella sits away from the main "town" (keep in mind the island has a full time population of around 300, so the town is a few buildings). The lodge is isolated and looks over the... More

We spent 4 relaxing days at Capella Lodge. Our holiday was made so enjoyable by the excellent managers and their team of dedicated staff. The Lodge itself is relatively small and pleasantly furnished without being luxurious. The Lounge area though encourages people to gather around the fire at night and chat whilst enjoying the excellent canapes and drinks. The Dining... More

We have just returned from a short stay on Lord Howe Island. In a word, absolutely amazing! Okay, that was two words, but one just couldn’t do it justice. The Island is like something out of a movie – a touch of Jurassic Park, a bit of Castaway etc. It’s an unspoiled tropical Island, without the problems that the tropics... More

Rather than repeat how fabulous Capella is, you should just GO, as it's really everything that has been said and more. ... so refined is the experience that its beauty is absorbed into your system... that's why everybody leaves softer and always smiling. Dreams of nature, romance of the senses - comfort for the spirit that unconsciously deals with everyday... More

My husband and I have been to LHI a few times, always staying at a different lodge. This time we decided to go all out as it is unlikely that we will be back. Capella is expensive... but a very, very special experience. Nothing was too much trouble, all the staff were friendly and extremely helpful without being 'over the... More

We were lucky enough to find Lord Howe Island while searching the Internet for a one-of-a-kind honeymoon. Itself one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited, the island was made only better by staying at Capella. The lodge is everything that the reviews say and more. It is worth every penny and every hour of travel. We will... More
