The Capella Lodge sits on Lord Howe Island, which is located in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand. The stunning cliffs, endless ocean vistas, and secluded feel of this little-known island make it a perfect destination for anyone seeking an exclusive and unique holiday experience. Capella brings a sophisticated and undeniably luxurious edge to Lord Howe. Built on the shore of the secluded Lover’s Bay, between the island’s twin peaks, Mount Gower and Mount Lidgbird, it also puts a premium on both privacy and scenic beauty. Capella’s restaurant, indoor and outdoor lounging areas, and its nine suites all feature breathtaking vistas. Each airy suite boasts wood floors, a spacious design, and contemporary furnishings that create a chic, upscale atmosphere. The king-size beds are covered in fine cotton linens, and guests can enjoy their own state-of-the-art entertainment system from the plush seating area. Rainfall showers, sleek stone-covered countertops and vanities, and designer toiletries bring Capella’s luxe appeal into the bathrooms as well. In the Lodge’s public areas, stylish modern furnishings beckon guests to simply lounge while enjoying the stunning views and upscale ambiance. The expansive outdoor terrace also features an infinity pool. Capella’s restaurant serves cuisine that matches the classy, cutting-edge surroundings, while an open-plan bar and lounge offer a welcoming and social atmosphere. The restaurant serves Pacific-themed creations that are made with fresh ingredients from the ocean and from sources on Lord Howe and the Australian mainland. Breakfast and dinner are included in the rate, and sunset drinks are also complimentary. Both indoor and outdoor treatment spaces are offered in the intimate Capella Spa. A full menu of services are available, and many of the treatments showcase local products. For example, the hot stone massage uses heated basalt rocks from the island’s beaches. Outside of Capella's property, the magic continues. Rare birds land on Lord Howe's remote shores. The world’s southernmost coral reef lies just offshore, and guests can get an up-close look in a glass-bottom boat. Snorkeling and scuba diving are also on offer for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the unique aqua-scapes around the island. On land, secluded beaches and endless forests of banyan and palm trees offer a unique set of landscapes that are waiting to be explored. What to do Appreciate the unique marine scenery on a glass-bottom boat tour or get a closer look by donning a mask, fins, and a snorkel. Lounge on the Lodge’s expansive terrace, then savor an delicious Pacific-themed gourmet meal and toast the sunset with a glass of fine wine. Relax at Capella’s spa, which offers an array of unique treatments. Photos Courtesy of Capella Lodge
