Lonely Planet review
This welcoming abode obviously suffers from excessive self-esteem, but offers commanding views over the sea (with Simbo and Rendova islands seen on the horizon). It's perched on a hill in a quiet area, a 30-minute walk from downtown Gizo. The budget rooms downstairs are cramped and a bit sombre; it's worth shelling out for the more expensive rooms upstairs, as they have private facilities and sea views. You won't have to venture outside after dark; homemade meals can be provided.
Our independent authors have visited Paradise Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Gizo.
