Lord Howe island is magical and beautiful, and Arajilla helps its guests get the best out of it, whether by helping with hikes, picnics, booking diving or just pouring that glass of wine to cap off a day in paradise. Staff are extremely kind and patient. Rooms are comfortable though do get quite hot. The location a few minutes from...

We just got back from 3 nights at Arijilla and enjoyed every moment. The Kentia suite is gorgeous, light and airy and fitted out thoughtfully with beach towels, umbrellas, robes, backpacks. Even the complimentary toiletries are excellent quality. More than enough room for a couple, and close enough to the common area, although we never heard any noise, not even...

Arajilla is hard to beat for a relaxing few days at the end of a long trip. Beautiful island, comfortable rooms, excellent staff and fabulous food. It's true that the wifi's poor and there's no mobile signal but who cares??

A very private and very luxurious few days spent here. It would be wonderful for honeymooners. We had already spent a few days elsewhere and this was the treat cap. The breakfast food was outstanding and healthy. Lord Howe is an amazing treat overall. More Australians should go and enjoy it.

Everything written about wonderful stays at Arajilla is absolutely true, our stay was the same, we couldn’t fault it, right from the time we were picked up from the Airport to the time we left, 6 days in all. It was faultless. However, I would also like to mention the remedial massage I had with Isabella in the Arajilla Day...

The rooms were large and clean. The resort is set amongst a small palm forest making it feel really calm and relaxed - the sounds of birds serenading. The staff were amazingly friendly and maintained a very high level of service (uncommon in Australia). This is an all inclusive resort and we were very happy with the quality and quantity...

Lord Howe is an amazing place. Truly unspoilt with beautiful walks, beaches and scenery. Arajilla is a lovely place to stay, be warned though the wifi is patchy, no mobile coverage and the walls are paper thin! On the upside the food is fab and the staff, led front of house by Rebecca and Phoebe could not have done more...

It was great to return to Lord Howe and stay at Arajilla once again. Thankyou Bill, Jan and family and your wonderful team for such reliable service, comfort, tranquility and gorgeous food. Batteries now recharged! See you again in 2017.

L.H. has been on our bucket list for years. Then to celebrate a big 'something' zero birthday we decided to escape to the Island instead of a party...to have some 'our' time away from it all .. & this proved to be the best decision.

Arajilla Retreat was a wonderful place to stay, relax, eat and enjoy the beauty, peace and calm of this lovely island. Food, especially dinner, was outstanding. Service provided by all the staff, whatever their function, was exemplary: helpful, cheerful and always going the extra mile.
