Zipolo Habu Resort is located on Lola Island in Vona Vona Lagoon in the Western Province of Solomon Islands. The Resort, lovingly built over many years by Joe and Lisa Entrikin, ticks all the boxes on an island paradise: blue lagoon, white sands, comfortable accommodation, fresh seafood and cold, cold beer.
While definitely a relaxing and peaceful location, this doesn’t mean that your holiday would need to be a quiet one! There are plenty of activities to take part in, such as scuba diving, surfing, beach volleyball, kayaking, bushwalking and board games. Excursions, including WWII tours, rainforest trips, and visits to other islands such as Skull Island and Mantaray Island, can all be organised for you.
What perhaps is Zipolo Habu Resort’s speciality would have to be the fishing. They offer lagoon, deep sea, river, estuaries and outer reef fishing and regularly catch marlin, sailfish, mahi mahi, giant trevally, wahoo, spanish mackerel, coral trout, red sea bass and plenty more.
The Zipolo Habu Sport Fishing Fleet includes three boats, custom built for fishing comfort and safety. All are equipped with marine VHF radios and life jackets. Quality fishing tackle for light and medium sport fishing can be provided or you’re welcome to bring your own.
The real island bungalows of Zipolo Habu Resort are constructed using the traditional Vona Vona materials of Sago Palm Leaf, Lawyer Cane and Wild Betel Nut Tree. All bungalows have 240 volt power, fans and a kitchenette equipped with gas stove, refrigerator/freezer and cooking utensils. Fresh rain water is provided, along with tea and coffee making facilities. The waterfront deluxe bungalows have ensuite bathrooms, while the traditional and semi-deluxe bungalows use shared facilities.
So, how do you get there? The resort is located approximately a 20 minute boat ride from Munda Airport or Noro Shipping Wharf. Joe and Lisa are also happy to organise connection by motorboat from other areas in the Western Province.
