Double page spread in Woman's Day


Woman's Day with Pinetrees Lodge on Lord Howe Island

Woman’s Day is Australia’s No. 1 weekly magazine. The readership is huge. So imagine our surprise when Pinetrees featured in a beautiful double page spread by travel journalist, Angela Saurine. 

Lord Howe is a stunning place, but sometimes it doesn’t feature well in magazines if the journo visited during cloudy weather and didn’t capture the amazing colour of the lagoon or the rich sunsets on Mt Gower. Angela’s article in Woman’s Day is the reverse – the photos are superb, particularly the lead photo of the jetty, lagoon and mountains.

Angela visited during our Spring Wellness Week where we provide guests with a daily program of yoga with Charlotte Dodson, adventure fitness activities and wholefood cooking classes. We’re a bit more relaxed than the typical wellness retreat – it’s a holiday after all – and encourage our guests to have a glass of really good wine so long as they’ve done 2 hours of yoga, climbed a mountain and paddled a kayak on the lagoon. Generally, our motto is ‘fatter but fitter’, except on Wellness Weeks where guests just get fitter. Thanks for the lovely article, Angela!

Thank you so much! We loved every minute of it. Now we have to go on a huge diet when we get home!

Pinetrees is the ‘complete holiday’. It provides a stress free environment and staff who are personal and friendly and efficient. You can really ‘connect’ with the island through tours, walks, fishing, snorkelling and meeting the locals.
Sue & Dennis, Turramurra NSW

Would I recommend Pinetrees? Absolutely NOT! I don’t want anyone else to find out about this paradise. This place is wonderful and anyone who visits will have the time of their lives! The work you’ve done to the accommodation is top notch. I can’t thank you enough for a wonderful holiday.

Pinetrees has welcoming and friendly staff and beautiful accommodations set in a natural and well cared for environment. You can really rest and relax here and I feel it’s a place for everyone regardless of age.
Susan, Beecroft NSW

Everything about Pinetrees is excellent! The staff are friendly and helpful, the meals were excellent, and the rooms are just beautiful. It’s setting amongst the pines and palms, right near the lagoon must make it the best spot on the island.
