Situated on Lola Island in Vona Vona Lagoon in the western province, is the quaint Zipolo Habu Resort. It is a 20 minutes scenic boat ride from Munda airport or Noro Shipping Wharf. Established by Joe and Lisa Entrikin, the resort strives to provide a true island living experience to reflect the surrounding blue lagoon and green palm trees. The bungalows are constructed using local materials including Sago Palm Leaf, Lawyer Cane and Wild Betel Nut Tree. The food is infused with tropical flair and made from fresh, local ingredients. Be prepared for a getaway of a lifetime.
Zipolo Habu Resort offers three types of accommodation to suit all budgets and sizes. All bungalows have 240 volt power, fans and a kitchenette equipped with gas stove, refrigerator/freezer and cooking utensils. Fresh rainwater is provided, along with tea and coffee making facilities. Mosquito nets are provided in each bedroom but are seldom needed.
The traditional bungalows utilise local design and allow you to experience a typical village style house. Sago Palm shutters can be opened out to let the breeze through or lowered during any moments of rain. Large airy balconies allow you to relax with a view over our gardens and out to the lagoon.
For those seeking a touch more comfort, the Semi-Deluxe Bungalows provide a little more attention to detail. Installed with 24 hour lighting and fans and fitted with beautiful hand woven walling and louvre windows, the semi-deluxe bungalows are comfortable and well appointed.
The two deluxe bungalows offer a premium level of comfort, privacy and style. Absolute waterfront positioning provides panoramic views across Vona Vona Lagoon to the dormant Kolombangara volcano in the distance. Each bungalow incorporates an ensuite bathroom with hot water showers, well-equipped kitchen and furnished balconies. Perfect for honeymooners.
Although the Zipolo Habu Resort are known for the speciality in sports fishing, they also can arrange adventures in the form of tours, diving and surfing.
On site, you can enjoy the Lola Bush Walking Track, beach volleyball, fishing from the pier, kayaking or indulging in a book swap or playing a board game.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite from all your adventures, enjoy the Zipolo dining, which is based on fresh ingredients and Solomon Island cooking style.
It offers international food with a twist of local flavours with seafood as a specialty – choose from barbecued crayfish, cuttlefish soup, chilli mud crab or sashimi tuna. If you want something light, kickback at the Waterfront Café and enjoy a drink of Sol Brew at the fully licensed bar.
You can also prepare your own meals in your room and it is advised you bring vegetables from either the Honiara or Gizo markets and catch or purchase from the plentiful supply of seafood readily available at Lola Island.
