Capella Lodge

Celebrated as the pinnacle of luxury on World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island, Capella Lodge rests atop romantic Lovers Bay, and at the foot of the imperious mountain twins rising dramatically above. An inspired architectural design welcomes spectacular views of the ocean, reef and mountains into the Lodge.

A feeling of relaxed sophistication flows throughout, and attracts the discerning experiential traveler, or guests seeking a civilized sub-tropical island escape.

A short flight from Australia’s east coast transports visitors to a real ‘treasure island’, a paradise lost in time and perfectly preserved. Guests take to mountain walks, relax on white-sanded beaches and explore the riot of submarine color in the world’s southern-most coral reef.

Luxurious surrounds, exceptional island-inspired dining and unforgettable ‘first-name’ service combine to create an outstanding lodging experience.

Capella Lodge sets world-class standards of exclusive luxury on Lord Howe.
