Islands to Highlands Adventure

'Malolo' directly translated from Tok Pisin means 'rest' and the very nature of Malolo lodge, its surrounds and the local people, ensure that one can do just that - relax. A most serene place where one falls asleep to the gentle lapping of the ocean and wakes to the morning calls of tropical birds. Daily cultural tours visit nearby coastal villages where local people still live mostly off the ocean, the forests and the land, living in complete harmony
