Turtle Bay Lodge

Turtle Bay Lodge is found on the point between Turtle Bay and Peterson Bay.

There seem to be water views wherever you look. There’s the ocean in one direction, with the delightful Turtle Island beckoning. And there’s the bay in the other direction, which frequently glasses off so there’s not even a ripple to be seen – a breathtaking sight. 

With 10 rooms in total, we are sure to have something to suit everyone at an affordable price. Turtle Bay Lodge has 2 Sea Front Family units, 6 Ocean View Double Rooms, 1 Pool & Seaview Budget Room & 1 Pool View Budget Family Room. All, but one of our ten rooms have ocean views of the bay.

Eating one of the many fabulous meals from our restaurant on the deck overlooking the water is a highlight. At high tide the water comes right up and you can watch the fish – or if you’re lucky a ‘black and white’, which is what the staff call the little black and white sea snakes.

Turtle Bay Lodge is the perfect place for those that love snorkelling, kayaking, walking and the chance to really get away from it all.  It’s a great base from which to explore the island of Espiritu Santo.

It’s also an excellent place to just kick back and relax – you don’t need to go anywhere when you have a delightful swimming pool, a great reef for snorkelling and a peaceful bay for swimming right on your doorstep!

Turtle Bay Lodge has its own restaurant and bar onsite for your convenience. The restaurant features an extensive menu as well as daily specials, ensuring you have something new to choose from every day.
We use organic, locally grown fruit and vegetables and buy most of our seafood from local fishermen who often arrive by dugout canoe! The famous Santo beef is a highlight for many guests.

Occasionally we organise a Melanesian feast. It’s a lot of work – the staff spend all day preparing their traditional local dishes.
The restaurant is staffed entirely by local people and they derive great pleasure from happy customers (sometimes we see the chefs sneaking a look out the window as their meals are delivered so that they can see the guests’ reactions!).

Visitor Feedback

Sitting on the deck, eating a meal, right on the waterfront in view of Turtle Bay is one of my favourite places to be. Whether it be deck chairs or lounges on the sand or lazing by the pool, there is no choice but to relax. Turtle Bay Lodge is clean and comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful in planning any outing you want to do.
