May 19, 2014 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

Solomon islands Visitors Bureau (SIVB) CEO, Josefa ‘Jo’ Tuamoto has described the newly opened Tituru Eco Lodge in Rendova, Western Province, as providing a perfect example of how tourism plant in the Solomon Islands needs to be developed into the future.

“Geographically and culturally we offer the world a unique product,” Mr Tuamoto said.

“Introducing this type of responsible tourism product that conserves our pristine environment while helping to improve the welfare of the local people is very much the way forward for this destination.

“Eco-tourism has become a by-word for an ever-increasing number of very environmentally aware travellers,” Mr Tuamoto said.

“While currently we may only be a small destination on the world tourism map, we know and we have been quick to realise that delivering the right type of product and catering to the right kind of traveller will play a major part in our aspirations for the local tourism industry.

“I was extremely pleased to be a part of the official party invited to open this new project.

“The setting and the people were awesome and undoubtedly, aside from the wonderful accommodation, a major highlight of a stay at Titiru is the many attractions and activities the resort offers it guests – from Mangrove Tours, caves, healing waters and a local village visit.

“I was very impressed.”

Comprising four bungalows, Tituru Eco Lodge is located on the north coast of Rendova Island, a 20-minute boat ride from Munda Airport which is serviced daily by Solomon Airlines domestic services.
