Gazing down upon a jewel-toned lagoon and protected by the twin peaks of Mounts Gower and Lidgbird, Capella Lodge is Lord Howe Island’s premium boutique accommodation.
Combining spectacular views with idyllic luxury, it’s here that you can experience a stylish and sophisticated escape – be it in the contemporary cuisine, five-star service, relaxed sophistication or intimate surrounds – and envelop yourself in a stunning natural setting. Regarded as the most beautiful island in the Pacific, Lord Howe is a remote paradise off the east coast of Australia.
Perfectly preserved and listed as a World Heritage Site for its undeniable beauty, you’ll find an abundance of rare birds, plants and marine life set amongst dramatic mountains, spectacular beaches and one of the best diving sites in the world.
CAPELLA LODGE LOCATION
A convenient 2-hour flight from Sydney, Capella Lodge commands views of the Tasman Sea, the soaring peaks of Mounts Gower and Lidgbird, and the secret beach at its foot, Lover’s Bay. A mere 2-minute drive down the road from the airport, you can be on the beach within the hour and feel the sensational ease of relaxation set in within the day.
Not quite 7 miles long and 2 miles wide, Lord Howe Island is a tiny place packed with the utmost potential. Find the world’s southernmost coral reef available at your fingertips, along with lush forests, serene lagoons and rolling surf. Seventy-five percent of the island is preserved as a marine park and subtropical rainforest, and only 400 people are permitted to visit at any one time.
Capella Lodge echoes its environment with its décor, combining washed wood and luxe organic finishings for a result that’s beautifully beach-house chic. A stay in any one of the nine suites reveals spacious, light-filled interiors and timber floors, marine ply joinery and custom furniture pieces. Reflecting the mountainous cliffs beyond, bathrooms boast basalt stone features and oversized rain showers. Fluffy beach towels and bathrobes are, of course, included.
Whether you book into the Capella Suite or Lagoon Loft, Catalina Suite or Lidgbird Pavillion, all rooms feature king beds with superior linens, a music system, television, DVD, telephone and Wi-Fi. An in-suite bar tempts locally-sourced treats, and the bathrooms spoil with island-inspired Capella Spa toiletries. Daily housekeeping services and evening turn-down service are also provided.
Capella Suite The 484 square-foot Capella Suite has a flowing single level design, with king or twin bedding, an integrated lounge area and private outdoor deck with lounge furniture and views of the ocean and mountains. High ceilings and textural artwork give the space an airy, laid back feel, while an ensuite basalt bathroom features an oversized shower, custom Capella Spa amenities and natural sky lighting. The Capella Suites are ideal for one or two travelers.
Lagoon Loft The 645-square foot Lagoon Loft is a dual-level suite with comfortable living area downstairs, a king bedroom upstairs and a private deck on both levels. Soft furnishings are custom designed, and a generously sized daybed can be converted to sleep one extra person, accommodating up to three. The basalt bathroom has a rain shower and smooth slab vanity, and the private decks hold teak armchairs, a daybed and your own private hot tub where views of the lagoon, ocean and mountains can be enjoyed.
Catalina Suite Ideal for a family or group of four friends, the dual-level Catalina Suite spans 1076 square feet. A king bedroom, ensuite bathroom and balcony make up the upper floor, while a second king bedroom, separate lounge and fireplace are on the lower. Vaulted white ceilings and marine finishes lend to a cool and airy feel, extended by the outdoor deck laid with a daybed, occasional furniture and private hot tub with mountain views.
Makambo Loft Inspired by the seafaring days of Lord Howe and suitable for up to four travelers, the Makambo Loft stretches 1722 square feet. A large king bedroom and ensuite powder room can be found on the upper level, while a red spiral staircase connects it to two daybeds, an open fireplace and basalt bathroom on the lower. Generous private decks on both levels feature lounge furniture, a private plunge pool, outdoor shower and cabana-style daybed.
Lidgbird Pavilion The 1291 square-foot Lidgbird Pavilion is a popular choice for special occasions, with a wrap-around veranda capturing views of both the ocean and the mountains. The ground level features a living room, banquette lounge and expansive outdoor area, while upstairs is the king bedroom and basalt bathroom with dual stone slab vanities, a rain shower, extensive timber benches and Capella Spa toiletries.
