rates and packages
We offer a great range of packages. Bookings for 5 nights or more receive substantial discounts off the rack rate and include gourmet meals, island airport transfers and use of all lodge facilities. Our special packages have fantastic additional inclusions. We can also book the best available Qantas airfares to help you save time and money, but remember, flights and beds are limited on Lord Howe and costs increase closer to the date of travel. There's no such thing as 'last minute deals' to Lord Howe, so save money and book early. In 2014, Pinetrees was voted 'Best Affordable Resort in Australia' in Australian Traveller Magazine's People's Choice Awards.
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.
All rates are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and include GST.
Stays longer than 5 nights attract additional discounts off the rack rate.
Our 5 night 'all inclusive' rate includes island airport transfers, use of lodge facilities and all meals - full breakfast, lunch (either at Pinetrees, gourmet BBQ hamper or packed lunch), afternoon tea and 4 or 5 course dinner. The 5 night 'all inclusive' rate excludes drinks, airfares and other applicable levies and taxes. Our 5 night 'bed & breakfast' rate includes island airport transfers, use of lodge facilities, full breakfast, afternoon tea, 4 or 5 course dinner on the night of arrival and evening transport to local restaurants. The 5 night 'bed & breakfast' rate excludes drinks, airfares and other applicable levies and taxes.
Bed & Breakfast rate
There are no cooking or self catering facilities at Pinetrees, so all 'bed and breakfast' guests should have lunch and dinner at local cafes and restaurants. 'Bed and breakfast' guests are welcome to book for lunch or dinner at Pinetrees by 9am on the day, although seats are not guaranteed due to high demand. The 'bed and breakfast' rate is not available for our 3 Bedroom Cottage, 4 Bedroom Cottage or Garden Cottages. The 'bed and breakfast' rate is not available for any rooms from 20 December to 20 January (inclusive). All guests in each room must book the same rate (i.e all guests must be on an ''all inclusive' rate or 'bed & breakfast' rate). Pinetrees will not accept bookings with mixed rates within one room.
