Information

Have you ever dreamed of escaping to your own private island? Leave the rat race well and truly behind at Oravae Cottage – your own Robinson Crusoe style bungalow in the heart of the Pacific. Perched on the edge of an islet 20 minutes from the mainland, there’s nothing to distract you here but the gentle sound of waves.

Spend your days relaxing on the wooden verandah, swimming pristine lagoons, diving or snorkelling WWII Japanese war relics, feasting on traditional island banquets or sinking an ice-cold beer and watching the sun go down as the rest of the world becomes nonexistent.

Oravae Cottage is an open-plan wooden bungalow built from local supplies. The highlight, undoubtedly, is the over-water verandah that leads right out over a beautiful blue lagoon, complete with hammocks and deck chairs.
The Penthouse is an overwater bungalow adjacent to Oravae Cottage. It has a double bed, indoor toilet and outside shower, and a vast wooden deck perfectly positioned to catch the sea breezes across the lagoon.
The Treehouse is nestled in the trees on stilts right on the water’s edge. It has two wooden decks, the main one having direct views of the impressive Kolombangara Volcano, one double bed, and bathroom facilities are shared with the Cottage and Penthouse.

Tasty meals are planned and prepared on the island by your welcoming hosts and delivered to the cottage at meal times. Soft drinks and beer can be ordered in advance of your stay and are payable on arrival. Other amenities include gas lighting, fridge and stove; cutlery and kitchen supplies; tea and coffee; linen and towels; traditional canoe and a selection of inflatables to float your day away.

Whether you’re after a romantic getaway for two or somewhere for a party of 10, Oravae is the perfect escape.
