Matikuri LodgeAddress: Matikuri Island, Marovo Lagoon, Morovo Lagoon view map
Matikuri Lodge sits at the northeast end of Matikuri Island at the western arc of Morovo Lagoon - the world's largest lagoon.
Built in the early 1990's, guests have their own small leaf house with a completely private deck sitting over the water - a perfect place to idle away a day or stargaze.
Matikuri is owned and run by Benjamin Kaniotoku, who comes from the nearby village of Bopo, and his wife Jilly who is from Nazareth village. Benjamin is one of the Lumolo family whose ancestors have lived in the area for hundreds of years, and the village of Bopo has ancient petroglyphs.
