Had a fantastic stay at Marovo Sea Lodge. You will stay in small huts on a family's property - Jeremiah and Dixon are your hosts, they are mentioned in several reviews. The food was fantastic, and Jeremiah and Dixon will happily arrange activities for you. As it is a small family-run business, there is no website etc. I've attached a... More

The lagoon is a scuba divers paradise. The water temp ranges between 26 - 30c and has amazing visibility up to 50m. Pelagics, macro, reefs, walls and wrecks. This place has it all and is very accessible from Uepi Island Resort by boat. If you are planning on diving in the Solomon Islands then make sure the Marovo Lagoon is... More

Kopikorapa is a small private owned lodge on a private island, near Uepi resort. It's basically a local older man (James) who is trying to get an accommodation lodge up and running at his own house, with help of family and friends, but he's not well organised or resourced. It's quite basic, but ok if you like roughing it a... More

We stayed at the locally owned Sea Lodge resort near Chunchulu in Marovo Lagoon. The location is fantastic and the views over the lagoon are great. The accommodation is small and traditional but the owner has big plans for expansion- I'm still unsure whether this is a good or a bad thing. We kayaked to the mindi mindi Islands- went... More

this lagoon is spectacularly beautiful. the water is so clear that you can see the colourful fish and water creatures without having to dive or snorkel. On of the most beautiful places I've been to.

A beautiful place to visit - we spent two nights in the Marovo lagoon enjoying the sun, sea, fishing and wildlife. A wonderful place to base yourself as you island hop and experience the diversity of the western Provence.

We were greeted by war canoes of Telina village and were shown demonstrations in the village of local crafts and cooking while being entertained by musicians. Off shore there is excellent snorkelling over the coral reef.

We went to the Marovo Lagoon to do a tour around. But Maravo Sea Lodge appeared to be in the lagoon! So we arrived at Marovo Sea lodge with the intention to stay 1 night, but we ended up staying here our whole holiday. In one word, it's paradise! The water-bungalow with its view at the lagoon, the beautiful flowers... More

This is a place to explore for days. Outer parts of lagoon gave great diving into the abyss. Inner parts shallow coral full of fish and sharks. Some villages, especially those not decimate by clear wood cuttings have developed a tradition of sustainable, and valuable wood carving. Go out of your way to find a carver called John Wayne. Not...
