Capella Lodge has just undergone a luxe redevelopment, one of the highlights being the remodelled Capella Spa which reaches new heights with a loft level offering mesmerising views to the soaring mountains and the tranquil reef beyond.

Even though it’s only about 10kms long and just under 3kms wide there’s a lot to see and do on Lord Howe Island. Given the marine park status (the world’s southern-most coral reef is here), a plunge beneath the waves for some snorkelling or scuba diving is pretty much mandatory. Heaven!
Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky and Elton John have all stayed here.
