Capella Lodge
Makambo Loft

Makambo Loft

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

The 160m² suite features a generous upstairs king sleeping area with ensuite powder room, reached by a striking red spiral staircase and is an ideal retreat for two people. Daybeds in the living area below make for a perfect chillout in front of the open fireplace, 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 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 pool, outdoor shower and cabana style daybed complements the relaxed, fun-spirited sophistication of this luxury retreat.

The Makambo Loft is ideal for up to four persons.
