Capella Lodge
Makambo Loft

Makambo Loft

Inspired by the swashbuckling seafaring days of Lord Howe, this premium mezzanine suite draws mesmerising views of Lord Howe’s postcard twin peaks, Mounts Gower and Lidgbird.

The 90m² suite features a generous upstairs king sleeping area, reached by a striking red spiral staircase and is an ideal retreat for two people. Luxe daybeds in the living area below make for a perfect chillout, or can convert on turndown to one or two single beds for additional persons. A contemporary basalt bathroom is located on the lower level.

Generous private decks on both levels with lounging furniture and retro Ditzel ‘hanging basket’ chair promote quiet contemplation of Lord Howe’s dramatic natural landscape. Fat dairy cows munch contentedly on lush green grass at the mountains’ foot; it’s a world apart.

The Makambo Loft is a superior suite and features a dash of red for fun with Mambo artist Bruce Goold’s soft furnishings and lino cuts, already a Capella design trademark in the main Lodge. Organic artwork by Cardamatis and Saad features bedside. A private deck plunge spa complements the relaxed, fun-spirited sophistication of this luxe retreat.

The Makambo Loft is ideal for up to 4 persons.
