Turtle Bay has had a makeover and wow! Wha a difference! The "new" management team (they've been there a year) have put in a heck of a lot of work and really transformed the place! There are additional beach areas, the grounds are well tended, the rooms are clean and the communal area is looking swish. Well done team! It's... More

We were delighted by the hospitality and beautiful location at Turtle Bay. After being transported from Luganville Airport in the morning we still had enough time to have an exciting day hiring Stand up Paddle Boards on the Bay. We paddled all the way to the Blue Lagoon, were we had an fantastic time on the rope swings. There was... More

Personally, i have never experienced service like this. I found all the staff highly efficient as well as genuinely friendly. They were more than friendly they were kind always anticipating what you might like and providing it. The managers Diane and Skye were available from early morning to late at night and absolutely nothing seemed to too much trouble for... More

Turtle Bay Lodge was a great place to stay, although it is a wee bit out of town, this is what makes it perfect. All the activities were close by (e.g. Mellenium caves, Karva tasting, Blue Holes, Horse riding) and all of this could be organised with Dianne, Skye or Delphine. They were great and went above and beyond any... More

I had been dreaming of coming here for a few years. I loved it! Diane and Sky were wonderful hosts. The food was impeccable and everyone that worked there Delphine and Iris were wonderful. Very friendly always smiling and very helpful. Rooms with sea view and beautiful greenery. Superbly clean.
