About Arajilla Retreat on Lord Howe Island

Arajilla Retreat is perfectly positioned on the northern sheltered end of the Island’s lagoon, nestled in a forest of ancient Banyan Trees and Kentia Palms – just behind Old Settlement Beach, where the turtles come down to swim.

Meandering pathways lead you through gardens of Kentia Palms and Banyan Trees to luxurious accommodations, to the guest lounge, to the Day Spa, to the renowned restaurant and the beach, all the while surrounded by the Island’s wondrous beauty.

Explore the stunning landscapes and wildlife of an Island so beautiful it has World Heritage protection and where visitor numbers are limited to a maximum of 400 at any one time.

The Meaning of Arajilla

Arajilla is derived from an aboriginal word roughly translated as “a mystical place to rest”.

Where lush mountain pastures meet Old Settlement Beach
Where Kentias and ancient Banyans bathe in soft filtered light
Where the suites are spacious and stocked with pleasures
Where the food and wine is pure magic
Where you can be as energetic or as enigmatic as you wish
Where the picnic feasts are legend
Where the air is fresh and salty and good
You’ll find Arajilla
