Lord Howe Island’s luxurious Capella Lodge reopened this month after a $4 million four-month refurbishment.
The suites’ outdoor areas let visitors enjoy the mountain and water views of the Heritage-listed island — 600km off Australia’s east coast.
Lord Howe Island Tourism Association says the area is the remnant of a now-extinct shield volcano that dates back seven million years and has been eroded to one-fortieth of its original size.
Visit capellalodge.com.au to check out various package deals, such as the 2019 Capella Classic that starts from $3600 per person twin share.
