Capella Lodge On Lord Howe Island

By: Peter R Stewart

A Romantic Getaway Package to Capella Lodge an exclusive boutique hotel situated on the southern end of Lord Howe Island in the South Pacific, is one that few people even know about. The fact is that Lord Howe Island is in the South Pacific, yet it is only two hours flying time from Australia, and it still remains almost unknown to the world at large.

Lord Howe Island has the distinction of having the most southerly coral reef in the world, and it is the island that boasts one of the best exclusive small boutique hotels in Australia called the Capella Lodge.

Capella Lodge is perched above Lover's Bay and is unique on Lord Howe Island in that is looks out over the ocean, the lagoon, and the mountains.

With a maximum of twenty guests, the elegant Capella Lodge is totally understated luxury, and so attracts really discerning guests who want and expect the best. Capella Lodge gives guests the kind of sophisticated weekend getaway that they feel comfortable with.

What you will get is a variety of high quality accommodation in nine suites, based on three Capella Suites, four Lagoon Lofts, the Capella Family Suite, and The Lidgbird Suite which is the Premium Suite with a wrap around veranda and a private plunge spa. If you want to bring children, then they will need to be over six years of age.

The quality of the furnishings in the Suites are of impeccable taste, with every detail thought of.

There are a huge number of things to do which is one reason this beautiful island and this exclusive boutique hotel are the ideal destination for a romantic honeymoon. This includes Lagoon Canoeing, Mountain Biking, Snorkeling, Cycling, Golf, Tennis, Boat Cruises and glass bottomed boats, Scenic flights to name but a few. You need to enjoy the stunning beaches and the crystal clear water.

Eating and drinking at the Capella Lodge is yet another reason to stay. The Capella Restaurant has stunning views of the lagoon and the mountains. The menus are contemporary and the quality is of the highest order. The service just adds to the atmosphere and this has to be the best restaurant on Lord Howe Island.

In fact the staff at the Capella Lodge are of the very best, from remembering guests names, and they have an uncanny knack of seeming to anticipate what you want accurately time after time.
