Located in the Langa Langa Lagoon, a short boat ride from Auki in the Malaita Province lies Bataiasi Village Stay. Set close to the water’s edge in the village, its leaf roof makes it cool on hot days, and houses three guest rooms. Meals and entertainment are in separate buildings close by.
Stay at Bataiasi to experience real village life in a traditional style and setting. Story with locals and listen to stories of shell money from old and how a woman once gave birth to a baby shark… Through the area you’ll see the many settled man made islands, and ship building yards. The Langa Langa people are the only makers of the shell money in the Solomon Islands and also continue to build artificial islands of stone.
Around the property enjoy the peaceful views of the clear water lagoon, reefs, and many abandoned islands which were once island villages washed away by tidal waves.
