This traditional style Eco- lodge offers guests an opportunity to experience local accommodation combined with conservation initiatives and the natural environment. Pota'a Sauragi Eco-Lodge is situated in a quiet bay with a bungalow situated on a low hill or one nestled in the protected mangroves. Both offer a relaxing place on an open veranda enjoying the cool breeze. This is a perfect site for bird watchers; the song of Sagata can be heard in the afternoons. With simple traditional style, your host will ensure that you visit will be a memorable one.
Peter Sagupari, his wife Margaret and 6 children have developed the lodge with the assistance and training of SIDT which is the Solomon Islands Development Trust.
