Grace Lodge is a newly established traditional style bungalow in Mengge Village on Simbo Island. Simbo Island is a venting volcano with megapode bird hatcheries. This is a great opportunity to experience local daily life and culture with the Simbo people. The slow pace of life and interesting daily tasks to gather food and maintain shelter creates a fascinating holiday.
