Nestled on the pristine World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island, Capella Lodge is a luxurious boutique lodge that boasts breathtaking views of the ocean, reef and surrounding mountains. Celebrated as the pinnacle of luxury, Capella Lodge rests above romantic Lovers Bay and features nine individual and private suites, providing the perfect setting for a romantic couple’s escape or a honeymoon retreat like no other. 

Contemporary architectural design in the lodge’s main area, featuring floor to ceiling glass, creates an elegant indoor-outdoor space that mesmerises guests with the views of the mountains and turquoise lagoon that stretches to the horizon. Luxurious surroundings, designer fabrics and bespoke furnishings create a feeling of relaxed sophistication and unpretentious indulgence. 

Days at Capella Lodge can be spent lounging with a book in the well stocked library, enjoying the horizon pool or indulging in one of the signature spa treatments at Capella Spa. For the more active, there is an abundance of rare birds, plants and marine life to discover as well as rainforest treks, walks on the sublime beaches and exploring the underwater world by snorkelling or aboard a glass-bottomed boat. 

Capella Lodge also revels in its reputation for fine dining, boasting a spectacular restaurant that features views of the Tasman Sea below, providing a dramatic backdrop for savouring fresh island cuisine over a romantic dinner for two or perhaps even a proposal?

Each of the nine contemporary suites has been designed to complement Lord Howe’s pristine natural environment, providing a private, luxurious and serene sanctuary for guests.
