Located on the edge of a tropical lagoon on Gatokae Island, The Wilderness Lodge is an idyllic destination to escape from everyday life. Enjoy real Melanesian hospitality with your Marovo hosts,Waelinah and Vaelathy, and unique local experiences and genuine adventures with the Wilderness guides. The all Solomon Island staff have been trained in the nearby village of Peava. At The Wilderness Lodge, years of experience and integration have created a unique example of culturally and environmentally-sensitive tourism.
Catering for a maximum of 12 guests, The Lodge has been designed to meld the atmosphere of the Gatokae rainforest and ocean with the lifestyle of the neighbouring small village whilst retaining Western comforts and convenience, featuring traditional construction using sago palm leaf, wild bitalnat palm and village-sawn hardwood with exotic timber and pandanus mat interior.
With prime access to the three wild and uninhabited islands of Bulo, MaleMale, and Kicha, the 2,900 foot jungle-clad peak of Mt Mariu, and ancient fortified villages and ceremonial sites, The Wilderness Lodge is the perfect base from which to explore the incredibly diverse marine and terrestrial ecosystems of the Marovo Lagoon and learn of the fascinating past culture of ritual headhunting which persisted into the twentieth century.
People of all ages, walks of life, levels of fitness and interests will find a week relaxing and exploring at Wilderness a rich, cleansing and memorable experience.
