My partner and I just returned from five flawless nights at the Capella Lodge. The experience was perfect - simply beyond expectations - and the staff has the service formula down to a science. Due to the popularity of the hotel, we had to book three nights in Lagoon Loft #2 and two nights in Makambo Loft #9. While the...

I have always wanted to visit Lord Howe and considering this was our honeymoon we read the reviews, researched the web and on recommendation chose to stay at Capella. We couldn't have been more impressed! The location, room, food, staff, facilities and attention to detail added to our instant love of the island! We only had 2 days at Capella...

Difficult to add much to what has already been said lots of times. Great location, lovely room, excellent food: add welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable staff and what more could one ask for?! Actually, better weather would have been nice, but that did not detract from a wonderful, if too short, stay. A great way to end our trip to NZ...

We have wanted to come to Capella Lodge for a while and to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary, we thought it was the perfect destination. Capella Lodge did not disappoint. It is truly beautiful, and being small it has an intimacy which we truly liked. From the moment we were collected from the airport, we felt welcome and relaxed. Libby,...

This is a wonderful escape from the world. The Capella Lodge is simply fabulous with an environment and staff to help you relax completely. Having a small number of guests helps too. Its setting is stunning and each meal is a joy to receive. Wonderful people and an amazing Chef who brings you all these superb evening meals. All meals...

5 stars are not enough to quantify our stay at Capella Lodge at LHI and the pleasure begins the minute you step off the plane with the stunning backdrop of Mts.Lidgbird and Gower......and from that moment it just gets better, better and better. A warm and genuine welcome from the 'Capella family' makes you feel very much at home on...

Initially Lord Howe Island is stunning, and an oasis of tranquility and natural beauty. We have been to Caribbean islands and Lord Howe has it all, if not more with the reef, but is not overcrowded due to the strict restriction on the number of tourists. Capella Lodge is the 5 star resort on the Island and the accommodation food...

We spent 7 nights in the Makambo Loft at Capella and I'll describe a typical day for us. Wake up in the most comfortable king bed we've ever slept in to a stunning panoramic view of the mountains and sea, if you're like my husband perhaps wake up a little earlier and wander down to Lovers Bay with a fishing...

This small luxury hotel set on a hill overlooking this beautiful tropical island in the middle of nowhere literally hundreds of miles from your nearest neighbours is about as good as it gets The location is only equalled by the service, the friendly staff make you feel like one of the family and the food is exquisite.
