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.

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

Spent three lovely nights here in April and our only regret is that it wasn't longer. Only nine rooms (all with a lovely outlook to the south - we enjoyed the Makambo Loft) in total plus a relatively intimate dining, lounge and bar area, the owners have made this a memorable place to stay. The meals are excellent (most ingredients... More

There are not enough superlatives in the English language to describe the pristine beauty of Lord Howe Island. As for Capella Lodge: everything about the place is superb - the location, the food, the rooms, the service. Nothing was a trouble to the attentive and friendly staff who were always happy to oblige.

The first thing to say is that the pictures you see do not do justice to the amazing view from the lodge. The second thing is that although we stayed for a week, we only managed to do a fraction of the things we would like to do. LHI is not a place to visit once, but to return to... More

We spent a full week at Capella and loved it. What worked for us: it's an island where you can be physically active every day without being a world class athlete. We biked, we hiked, we snorkelled -- but we also wined, dined, and napped in equal measure. The scenery is beautiful and the people are friendly. The weather is... More

My husband and I had a 5 night stay at Capella Lodge in April. We found the rooms, food, service, location and all the staff members to be outstanding. We were wanting a quiet break in between two very busy periods of business travel and we had that and more. The small nature of the resort made it even more... More
