Matevulu Lodge

Ideal for tourists looking for authenticity and tranquility, Matevulu Lodge is located in a unique location on the East Coast of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu.

Our Bed & Breakfast is composed of four beachfront Bungalows offering modern facilities and comfort. Love the island decoration, the ocean view bathrooms and the wooden terraces literally 10 steps from the beach fringed with Tamanu trees. Equipped with a mini fridge, kettle, coffee plunger and spaced out from each other, our bungalows ensure privacy and intimacy. We have a Family room which is perfect for families and friends travelling together or privatise the Lodge for up to 14 people.

A Continental Breakfast is included in our rates with delicious homemade jams, breads and cakes. For the other meals, guests are sharing the Lodge’s spacious main Fare which is complete with an equipped kitchen, food storage facilities and a beachfront deck. You will need to bring your own food supplies from town before heading here as there’s only a small fruit/veggie Sunday market in the area. We are located at only 20 minute drive from town, there are also 2 restaurants within a 5 minute drive of the Lodge and we work with a take-away service who can deliver food directly to the Lodge (booking with advance)

Our rates also include free WIFI and the use of our kayaks, paddle-boards and snorkel gear. Matevulu Lodge is the only accommodation located between Riri and Matevulu Blueholes, both accessible by an easy half hour walk. Or choose to kayak up their pristine river, Riri Bluehole being at a comfortable half hour paddling distance under the native lush canopy. Explore the bay, snorkel the surrounding reefs, take a boat trip to the islands or go surfing. And why not just float down Riri river until the Lodge for a well deserved hammock nap. You can do as much or as little as you want.
