Lonely Planet review
Matikuri Lodge’s drawcard is its soothing sense of isolation, sitting on the western arc of Marovo Lagoon. Digs are in three island-style bungalows that face the sea; the four dorm-style rooms in the main house are rudimentary. There’s good swimming just offshore. No electricity, but kerosene lamps are provided. The dining area has a large deck on stilts. A host of guided walks, village visits and lagoon tours can be organised, and there are kayaks for hire. One-way boat transfers to Seghe airstrip (20 minutes) are S$250 per person.
Our independent authors have visited Matikuri Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Western Province.
