South Africa-born Lucky Legong shines in her role as Assistant Manager at Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island and brings such warmth and zeal to her role that she creates an atmosphere of joy to all those around her. Recently swapping one spectacular island for another, Lucky is at home in the Baillie Lodges collection.
Since completing her studies in Hospitality Management, Lucky has predominately worked in safari lodges and boutique hotels in some of the world’s most extraordinary locations. The move from Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge in South Africa to Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island was a natural one for Lucky and when the opportunity arose to work at sister property Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island, it was a very easy decision.
Lucky thrives on being part of a tight-knit team, delivering exceptional service and experiences to guests and completing everything with an extraordinary level of care.
‘Being able to bring my attention to detail and my creativity to my role is rewarding,’ Lucky said.
Baillie Lodges initially arranged a temporary skilled working visa for Lucky. She has since obtained her Australian Permanent Residency status and plans to become an Australian citizen in the near future.
