Nagol Bungalows is about 5 minutes walk south of Salap village. It has been operating since 1993. The business slowed down from 2007 but we've been told that it's now springing back to life. It's a good place and send us an email or post a comment below if you can update our pricing.
Nagol Bungalows has a good standard and friendly service
but it's rather expensive at 3500 Vatu per night for singles or
2800 Vatu per person for groups. In the low season the bungalows are
empty and walk-in guests should be able to negotiate a discounted
rate. All expenses are
payable in Vatu cash. Exchange
Bungalows offers several tours include land-diving, Ratap
village, bush walking, caves and a kastom
Eel Stone. The prices for these tours are not clearly set
out (there's no price list). Before taking a tour, ask what
it involves and if there are any restrictions (eg photography).
The Lonely Planet guidebook did promote Bunlap kastom
village on the east coast but we've heard of visitors being
charged a 5000 Vatu entrance fee. Also note that the road across
south Pentecost was closed in February 2005.
