Napatana Lodge

Napatana Lodge is the first eco-tourism lodge in Alotau.

Napatana is a traditionally built pole house that has been made from tropical timbers. The lodge reflects Milne Bay architecture, demonstrating traditional building skills by local craftsman. The open-air bar / restaurant overlooking the bay, popular amongst the handful of expats living and working in the area, is a great place to sup an evening beer with cool breezes floating in from the sea.

The cottages are set in a tropical garden, featuring free roaming animals that have been saved by the adjacent animal sanctuary. These rescued or sick animals have been nurtured to full health and released, but remain reluctant to move on and have become regulars guests throughout the Lodge.
