THE FIRST LUXURY LODGE IN THE WORLD’S LAST PARADISE
With clear views over the Pacific Ocean and the world's southern-most coral reef, Capella Lodge rests above Lord Howe Island's tiny, secret beach at Lover's Bay and at the foot of the imperious twin peaks, Mounts Gower and Lidgbird.
Guests are captivated by mesmerising views of the mountains and turquoise lagoon stretching to the horizon from the Lodge's indoor and outdoor lounging areas, the restaurant and suites. A clever, contemporary architectural design features an open-plan bar, restaurant and lounge to create an easy living, flow-though feel; skillion roofs and floor to ceiling windows welcome the outside in.
The restaurant throws open its windows to catch the sea breeze and the scent of frangipani. Interiors are Lord Howe beach-house chic; washed wood and luxe organic finishes combine with modern mariner and Lord Howe kentia-themed Bruce Goold furnishings to create a relaxed, contemporary style and streamlined luxury.
From the expansive Gowers Terrace, a dip in the horizon pool or lounging with a book or a loved one carries a spectacular backdrop of mountains and subtropical forests, of green pastures running to the jewel-toned reef. Guests relax with sunset drinks as the sun dips over the horizon.
Capella Lodge is an intriguing mix of international sophistication and Australian understatement, designed to emulate a private beach hideaway.
