Nestled among Lord Howe Island’s gently swaying kentia palms, the Capella Spa is a private sanctuary offering a balm to the bustle of every-day life. As part of Capella’s 2018 makeover the spa was reimagined in a loft setting, towards the ocean. Linocuts, artworks and textiles with a distinctly Mambo-feel by artist Bruce Goold feature in the beach-house style retreat, while fabrics created exclusively for the spa by island resident Sarah Jordan complete a relaxed vibe.

The Capella Spa uses the Li’Tya range of spa care products and massage techniques. Taking the Indigenous meaning ‘of the earth’, Li’Tya combines the natural qualities of the Australian earth, sea and spirit with traditional indigenous massage practices. Capella spa therapists are specially trained by Li’Tya on the traditional use of Australian native ingredients and ensure the Aboriginal teachings remain true within the spa environment.

Each Li’Tya treatment at the Capella Spa is designed to help guests to reinvigorate to generate their own health and balance from within. The profound wisdom and spiritualty of ancient Indigenous medicines and healing modalities, communicated over generations is incorporated in a holistic approach to wellness. The Li’Tya spa experience combines a whole range of sensory therapies designed to purify, nourish and harmonise the body.
