Lord Howe Island

Renowned for its warm and friendly service and laid back ambience, Arajilla Retreat encapsulates the very essence of Lord Howe Island, offering guests a haven of tranquillity and peace. Perfectly positioned on the northern sheltered end of the Island’s lagoon, nestled under a canopy of Kentia Palms and Banyan Trees just behind Old Settlement Beach, meandering pathways lead through native gardens to the beach, to the serene Ayurvedic Spa, to Arajilla’s  luxurious suites and renowned restaurant.

Explore the extraordinary scenery and wildlife of World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island. Be as active or as passive as you like. Walk bush trails, climb mountains, swim, surf, snorkel, fish, cycle around the Island, play golf beneath the mountains, lie on a deserted beach, enjoy a massage or treatment, savour fine food and wine. And it’s all less than a two hour flight from Sydney or Brisbane.

Our relaxing Guest Lounge is designed as a meeting place and the perfect spot for cocktails, pre-dinner drinks and after dinner chats and coffee.

Each evening we stage Happy Hour where guests meet before dinner to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine or to choose a beverage from our well stocked bar.

During the day sit in a comfy chair, enjoy a cappuccino, latte or tea, and read the morning paper or discuss your next outing – Arajilla’s staff are always delighted to suggest options for you to discover spectacular Lord Howe Island. We offer guests Lounge service throughout the day till late.

Arajilla Restaurant is popular with all visitors to Lord Howe Island as the place to dine. Amongst the forest, surrounded by timber decks, the Restaurant is elegant yet casual.

This is the perfect setting for delicious international style cuisine, complemented by a wide choice of wines - both Australian and New Zealand vintages. Seafood naturally features with the evening speciality often Kingfish freshly caught by your Arajilla host Bill Shead.

For guests the tariff includes breakfast, lunch and dinner: we always recommend a hearty cooked breakfast for those with a full day's activities ahead, though a light continental is naturally available.

The restaurant is open daily for breakfast from 8.00am to 10.00am, and for a light lunch from midday to 2.00pm. for in-house guests only. For dinner the restaurant opens at 6.30pm for in-house guests as well as by reservation for outside diners.

In-Room Dining & Picnics - At your own pace

Whether in the comfort of your own Suite or in the great outdoors we cater to your needs. Choose from breakfast in bed, a casual lunch or snack, or a quiet dinner for two. If you desire a beverage, DVD, newspaper or any small item, we are happy to help. Room service is available throughout the day up until 10 pm.

Your Suite is equipped with a fully stocked mini bar containing Australian sparkling and still wines, beer, soft drinks and water, plus nibbles and confectionary. There’s a range of spirits. Coffee and tea making facilities are also on hand.

Many spectacular picnic spots dotted across the Island are easily accessible by foot or bicycle. Favourites include seated under Kentia Palms at North Bay, on the sands at Neds Beach or just in front of Arajilla on a grassy knoll at Old Settlement Beach. Not only are there barbeques at all key spots, there is also chopped wood ready for use. Arajilla provides a Hikers Lunch or full provisions for a picnic barbeque, including a chilled bottle, all neatly packed and ready to go within your Arajilla backpack.

The Arajilla Wellness Spa offers a range of special Ayurvedic programs to soothe aches and pains, to unwind and relax, awaken your senses and restore natural balance to body, mind and soul.

With visitor numbers restricted on Lord Howe Island life is relaxed. You can be as active or as passive as you wish – bushwalk, swim, dive, fish, cycle around the island, play golf, lie on a deserted beach, enjoy a massage, savour fine food and wine, sleep in or simply take an afternoon nap – its up to you!”
