Matikuri Lodge sits at the northeast end of Matikuri Island on the western arc of the world's largest lagoon, Marovo. 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.
With other uninhabited islands dotted close by, Matikuri is the perfect place for kayaking and it's also an enjoyable canoe trip around the island in one of the local dugouts. The reef extending out in front of the main house offers snorkeling with easy access
Matikuri Lodge is located on the northeast end of Matikuri Island in the Morovo Lagoon, 6km south of Seghe Village.

On arrival at Seghe, you will be transported approximately 6 km across the lagoon in a 22 foot open canoe with outboard engine. - standard transport in the area. Its best to be prepared for the chance of getting a little wet from spray on the way to the island!
