I have visited many exclusive lodges and resorts around the world and enjoyed great hospitality. Capella Lodge stands out for its exceptional team of hosts who delight in helping, answering silly questions, and in every respect going the extra mile to make your holiday experience unforgettable. The venue is gorgeous based on a beautiful semi tropical island, the rooms and...

The Lodge nestles into a small hill at the southern end of the island. Other reviewers have waxed lyrical about the "Capella Experience" and it is all true. It is the ideal luxury retreat for those wishing to have a relaxing, care free break in a beautiful,quiet pastoral environment with the advantages of the beach and mountains close by. The...

My husband and I recently returned from our honeymoon at Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. The island itself is as picturesque and breathtaking as any I have seen with a lovely temperate climate. The lodge is situated at one end of the island in a beautiful spot with views over the...

Exceptional and ever changing views of two volcanic plug mountains on a nearly unique island in the Pacific. Very attentive and professional (but not intrusive) service in a country not renowned for its service (too much turnover). Dont need to lock anything up as no one will take anything. Excellent food. Great walks and snorkelling.

We were met at the airport by our wonderful hosts, Libby and Mark. They shuttled us to the lodge which is nearby, truly a five minute drive but we took our time so that we could learn a bit about the island and the many sights, beaches, trails, golf course etc...that were close by. The lodge is set back from...

Can't recommend Capella Lodge highly enough. The facilities are outstanding, staff were exceptional in every way. Guided walks are not to be missed. The food......unbelievably good! A magnificent destination so close to home.

If I could be marooned anywhere in the world this would be the place I would choose. Nestled at the isolated southern tip of Lord Howe with views dominated by the towering cliffs of Gower and Lidgbird standing aloof over this once volcanic island, Capella provides you with the escape and comfort that the marooned could only dream of. The...

My husband asked me what I'd like to do for my 50th and I immediately replied we should invite a few friends to stay at Capella where there would be no mobile phone and minimal internet to distract us.

Staying at Capella annually is like 'returning home' - there is nowhere in the world that has the ambience that one could call home away from home From airport pickup to the sad airport farewells you could not be in better more caring hands than with the amazing Managers Libby & Mark and Sally the Assistant Manager.
