Capella Lodge, Lord Howe Island, New South Wales, Australia
This is definitely a treasure island, a small jewel of
sub-tropical natural perfection off the coast north-east of Sydney; and Capella
Lodge is the ideal retreat.
Overlooking the secret beach of Lovers Bay, the mountain
and ocean views are mesmerising, as is the contemporary design. Suites have all
the hallmarks of beach-house chic with spacious light-filled interiors, while the restaurant is inspiring,
the petite spa sublime and the whole lodge feels like a private beach hideaway.
