Lonnoc beach lodge was in the picture perfect location right on the beach only 10 minute walk to champagne beach. It has a great feel to the area and you can’t help but love it. Wendy and Bob, the hosts, were so so lovely and looked after us in every way they could. Wendy runs the restaurant there and the food is delicious. People come from the surrounding accomodation to eat her food. Wendy has Wifi that she would turn on whenever we needed which worked quite well.
Although the location, people and food were fantastic the lodges are quite rundown. They aren’t somewhere you would stay for luxury, as we didn’t have hot water or water for some parts (Wendy and Bob did fix it ASAP) but if you don’t mind a few bugs and a bit of heat this place would be perfect for you. You do still need to pay 500vt per person when you walk through the town of Towoc as an entrance fee. The food was fantastic but it is very basic (meat/eggs veg, rice and chips) you may like to take a few snacks and bottles of water as there are no shops for miles and the menu is still quite expensive as most places are around Vanuatu. I would recommend this property to travellers who aren’t looking for luxury and want to stay somewhere for a couple of nights walking distance to Champagne beach.
Wendy, the manager, was the best part of the experience. She is a great host and a great cook. Her dishes are amazing. The views from the bungalows and the restaurant are stunning.
The beds could be comfier.
Wendy and Bob (AKA Jim Beam) and all the staff were awesome.
Location of the property is great. Locnoc Beach is one of the best in Santos. The lodge is also next to Champagne Beach. Restaurant has good selection of food at reasonable price compared to others nearby. Staff are great and helpful. Property is right on the beach (you can't beat that!). Rooms are spacious with outdoor patio - quiet and relax. You can go for a swim right in the front beach.
Limited electricity supply hence no fan for the room (really hot at night). Rates are a bit higher than similar properties in the same area upon our visit and after comparing with others nearby. Other properties have kayak for guests to use (not at Locnoc Beach Lodge).
- excellent snorkelling at your doorstep - saw a pufferfish! - room really close to sea, so nice and cool - no fan or air con needed - 5 min walk to Champagne beach - Wendy’s cooking was excellent and she looked after us, a lovely lady - free WiFi and snorkelling - very clean - cleaned out room every day too
- got bitten by mosquitoes - could do with a mosquito net in the rooms / seal the rooms - cold showers - no bottled water provided - 6% charge to pay by card - should be free
