Recently I visited the world-heritage Lord Howe Island off the New South Wales coast and stayed at Arajilla Resort. It was my second visit and I was incredibly impressed by the very high standard of accommodation and food. The staff and service at Arajilla were warm, friendly and accommodating.
The tariff includes all meals and I have to say that they were of a very high standard, particularly the 3-course dinners in the beautifully appointed verandah restaurant.
Ayurvedic treatments are available and conducted in a specially constructed yurt in the garden.
The island is only 7kms long and I had not ridden a bike for years but had no problems cycling all over the island. If you want night life then this is not the place to go however a perfect place if you're looking to relax and wind down. Highly recommended.
