Coral seen from the sky on arrival and the promise of perfect days on Lord Howe, so begins photographer and hotel reviewer Rhiannon Taylor’s stay at Capella Lodge. Checking out of the internet and any mobile phone coverage, Rhiannon quickly gets the off-grid luxury and relaxed, stylish vibe on offer at the lodge.
A surprise encounter with a green sea turtle while snorkelling in cool clear waters of the reef and the quiet thrill of spotting rare sea birds land for the nesting season complete a chilled few days in the welcoming surrounds of Capella.
Rhiannon has now journeyed to some of the world’s most spectacular hotels for her travel review site In Bed With, and recently nominated Capella Lodge as her all-time favourite.
