spring sale

Spring in the subtropics is one of the best times of the year – the water and air temperature are both 21 degrees, and there’s always a perfect spot in the sun. At night, after a beautiful 4 course dinner, you can relax in our new secluded outdoor baths under the Lord Howe night sky (Garden Cottages only) and wash your memories of winter away. Imagine how well you'll sleep! Mention our 'Spring Sale' when you book by 6 September and receive up to 2 FREE nights, FREE tours, FREE Moet Champagne, ALL meals and discounted spa treatments

Our Spring Sale is valid for stays between 8 September 2019 and 27 October 2019, and includes:

  • 6 nights’ accommodation (including 2 FREE nights) if you travel between 8-30 September 2019, inclusive
  • 6 nights’ accommodation (including 1 FREE night) if you travel between 1-27 October 2019, inclusive
  • FREE coral viewing cruise on the Lord Howe Lagoon
  • FREE picnic cruise to North Bay
  • FREE cooking class (and tasting) with our expert chefs
  • FREE 'behind the scenes' conservation tourism tour
  • FREE bottle of Moet Champagne on arrival
  • 20% discount on day spa treatments
  • full breakfasts
  • lunches (either at Pinetrees, gourmet BBQ hamper or packed lunch)
  • afternoon teas
  • 4 course dinners
  • island airport transfers
  • use of all lodge facilities
  • and, best of all, no need to shop, cook or clean

So, in principle, you can stay with us for 6 nights and not touch your wallet – a genuine all expenses included holiday at TripAdvisor's Number 2 Hotel in the South Pacific for 2019 (and TripAdvisor's Number 1 Hotel in Australia for 2017 and 2018). In practice, you’ll still buy a good Mecca espresso at breakfast and have a few drinks with dinner, but there’ll be no surprise 'five star' bill when you leave. Read the Locals' Guide to Lord Howe Island to discover the amazing World Heritage experiences you'll enjoy with us.
