Retreat Bungalow Surfing Fishing
Enjoy Papatura Island Retreat, Solomon's newest holiday destination and Santa Isabel's first world standard tourism project. Relax in your beachfront bungalow with warm tropical waters lapping the white sand beach on metres from your deck. Papatura boasts excellent fishing and awesome surfing, world class reefs for snorkelling, some great tropical rainforest walks and a true culture experience unspoilt by mass tourism. Papatura Island Retreat is your island getaway and is quickly being known as one of the Pacific's most sought after secret spots to step off the map and leave behind the worries of the modern world. Pure isolation. We have 3 standards of bungalows- 2 twin room Beach bungalows that can sleep up to 3 people in each room, our 2 loft bungalows with private bathrooms and newest addition the Sunset Bungalow for the romantics. Each is located on the beachfront and has a view of the Isabel mountain range, the torquise waters of bay and brilliant sunsets from your bedroom. They are constructed using traditional materials like sago leaf and wild beetle nut, all have large decks with hammocks and are fitted out using LED lighting, inner spring mattresses and rarely needed mosquito nets.
