Located in the Langa Langa Lagoon, a short boat ride from Auki in the Malaita Province lies Bataiasi Village Stay. Bataiasi Village Stay is a family-owned property and the hosts are always ready to welcome any visitor to their shores.
Stay at Bataiasi to experience real village life in a traditional style and setting. Engage with locals and listen to stories of shell money making from centuries old and how their ancestors used to live. 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.
The village in which Bataiasi Village Stay dwells is also the main Cultural Centre for the famous Shellmoney festival which is held annually on every August.
For an authentic cultural experience, come and stay with us at the Bataiasi Village Stay.
