Arajilla is in an optimum position on Lord Howe Island. In a rainforest setting it is a short stroll to Old Settlement Beach and an easy walk to most activities. We stayed in the recently renovated Banyan suites which were quiet, comfortable and well maintained, although blinds on the downstairs bedroom would provide more privacy. Meals were from good to excellent quality and the gluten free option was varied and tasty. Everything was provided: snorkels, beach towels and chairs and even a beach umbrella, really important when you consider that there is 14 kilogram weight limit on check-in luggage on all flights to the island. The staff are extremely helpful, providing booking for excursions around the island, but our experience suggests you should confirm these bookings personally with the tour operator. Would we stay again? A resounding YES.
