And its premier accommodation is Capella Lodge, hidden on an untouched corner that overlooks a near-secret beach. It’s a superlative, palm-fringed view that is showcased in everywhere from the horizon pool to the chic lounge and its floor-to-ceiling windows. The views from the nine suites and their private decks are equally good, framed by a flawless contemporary design. The generously sized living areas of the split-level loft rooms are particularly enticing. There’s even one that features its very own plunge pool.
Given the lodge’s remote setting, it won’t surprise that much of the ingredients are sourced locally. Think line-caught fish and fresher-than-fresh seafood dressed in herbs from Capella’s garden. It’s all realised in three-course dinners and delightful European breakfast spreads. You’ll also have the option of gourmet picnic lunches – best taken on a gentle hike – along with barbecue packs for some beach indulgence.
Return from your day’s activities to complimentary drinks at the open bar as you watch the sun set over the Pacific with a cocktail or glass of premium Australian wine. Further relaxation can be found at the spa, where a range of treatments are on offer; take yours al fresco to make the most of the Aussie sunshine.
