Early Bird Deal

Autumn and Spring are the best seasons on Lord Howe Island, and now is the time to book. Qantas flights to Lord Howe are limited to 28 seats and the cost increases (in some cases doubles) closer to the date of travel. ‘Last minute deals’ to Lord Howe are rare, so book early, save money, and discover why Pinetrees was TripAdvisor's No.1 Hotel in Australia for 2017 and 2018. That's consecutive wins.

If you book by 31 January 2019 to stay at Pinetrees from 27 April - 26 May 2019 or 8 September - 21 December 2019, then we’ll include:

  • 7 nights’ accommodation (including one FREE night - Pay 6 Stay 7)
  • FREE coral viewing or snorkelling tour
  • FREE cooking class (and tasting) with our expert chefs
  • FREE 'behind the scenes' tour with our staff to see how conservation tourism works in practice
  • FREE bottle of sparkling (something good with a James Halliday rating of 94 or above)
  • FREE Lord Howe Island Cookbook
  • 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 7 nights and not touch your wallet – a genuine all expenses included holiday. In practice, you’ll still buy a good Mecca espresso at breakfast and have a few sunset drinks, but there’ll be no surprise bill when you leave. 

Early Bird package rates start from $2,580.00 per person twin share when you stay in a Palm Room, $3,066.00 per person twin share in a Transit Hill Room or $3,366.00 per person twin share in an Under the Pines Room.
