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 is owned and run by Jilly Kaniotoku and her late husband Benjamin Kaniotoku, who comes from the nearby village of Bopo, and Jilly the wife is from Nazareth village. Late 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.
