welcome to Lord Howe Island

Pinetrees Lodge is famous for exceptional meals, personalised service, relaxing spa treatments and our stunning beachfront location on the Lord Howe Lagoon. Discover world-class diving, snorkelling, fishing, walking, surfing, kayaking and golf, or just relax and rejuvenate on one of Australia's most beautiful islands. In November 2014, Pinetrees was voted the ‘Best Affordable Resort in Australia’ by the readers of Australian Traveller Magazine.

Most of our regular guests have travelled to Tahiti, Hawaii, Fiji and Bali, but they always return to Lord Howe Island – it's close, relaxed, secluded and hassle free. Stay with us once and you’ll understand why so many guests return every year.

Lord Howe Island is one of the most spectacular destinations in the world. Its dramatic scenery, lush subtropical forests, rare flora and fauna, pristine beaches and colourful marine life are breathtaking and unique. In combination with a warm climate, vibrant local community and great range of world-class activities, Lord Howe is the perfect destination for all ages. In recognition of its scenic beauty and biodiversity, Lord Howe was inscribed as a World Heritage site in 1982. The list includes Uluru, Kakadu, Fraser Island and the Great Barrier Reef.

Accommodation at Pinetrees includes elegant en-suite rooms, luxury Garden Cottages and 3 and 4 bedroom family cottages. All of our rooms are serviced daily. Our accommodation is single storey and has easy access to the restaurant, lounge, bar, verandah, day spa, tennis court, gardens and waterfront deck. For a taste of the Pinetrees experience, please watch the short video clip every day at Pinetrees by film-maker Andy Lloyd.

We are serious about food and wine. It's the feature of a Pinetrees holiday. The quality of our food is exceptional and we serve full breakfasts, lunches (including picnics and BBQs), afternoon teas and 4 course dinners every day. Our chefs have worked in some of Australia's best restaurants and can prepare meals for all dietary requirements. All you need to do is eat, drink and enjoy – we'll do the shopping, cooking and cleaning.

Every year we host a variety of great events including food and wine weeks with famous Australian chefs (such as Steve Snow, Peter Kuruvita and Tom Kime), guided walks, photography classes, adventure weeks, wellness weeks, dive weeks and ocean swim weeks. We also offer 15 tailored adventure activities, through partnerships with the best local guides, to help guests experience parts of Lord Howe Island that very few people see.

Pinetrees attracts great editorial reviews in the media. We’ve been featured in TV shows such as Weekend Sunrise, Better Homes & Gardens, The Living Room and Sydney Weekender. We’ve also had dozens of great reviews in publications such as the Sydney Morning Herald, Sunday Telegraph, Weekend Australian, Australian Traveller Magazine, New Idea, Women’s Fitness, Delicious, Australian Yoga Journal, Great Walks, Nature & Health, House & Garden and Green Living (just to name a few).

Bookings for 5 nights or more receive substantial discounts and our special packages have fantastic additional inclusions. We can also book the best available airfares to help you save time and money. There are no ‘last minute’ deals to Lord Howe, so please book early for up to $600 savings on Qantas airfares.
