Lapita Lodge

Lapita Lodge is owned and operated by a Ni-Vanuatu couple from Santo and their knowledge of the culture and places in Santo is an added bonus!

The rooms are quiet yet in the centre of town and very safe and secure. The staff go out of their way to look after the guests with their special Santo hospitality.
Shops, banks, kava bars and restaurants are 5 minutes walk from the accommodation. Group bookings enjoy BBQ’s with facilities provided.

Lapita Lodge has fully equipped apartments for up to 22 people. Our setup is ideal for self-catering, perfect for long-term travelers and offers more affordable options for travelling families. There is free wifi for all guests and relaxing communal spaces, such as the reading room, for all guests to enjoy. Conference and workshop facilities are also available for hire.

An island breakfast of fresh tropical fruit and local bread, tea and coffee is included in your room price. Other meals are available for guests on request; however a fully equipped modern kitchen is available for guests to use.  Enjoy an outdoor BBQ, or try Kava at the Kava Nakamal provided.

Group bookings can also request traditional bunia or laplap which staff can prepare and serve to guests to celebrate the end of their stay with us at a very reasonable price.

Car hire and laundry services are also available.

Visitor Feedback

Lapita Lodge is an excellent place to stay. It’s located in a quiet spot surrounded by gardens but only a short walk to the main street. The staff are super friendly and helpful and always ready to greet you with a smile. The accommodation is clean and well kept and the rooms are light and airy. I would highly recommend staying whether you are a family, travelling solo or on a business trip.
