Welcome to Agnes Gateway Hotel, a travellers paradise, where tourists, diving enthusiasts and fishermen mix with business people, government officials on tour and locals. For fifty years our lodge, in the heart of Munda on the shores of the Roviana Lagoon, has offered accommodation, meals and refreshments to all who travel through the Western Province.
Our hotel was started by Agnes Kera who, for nearly 30 years, had been the cook and custodian of the original British Solomons Government Resthouse, the building which is now known as the Orchid Wing. After Agnes' retirement, her family carried on the Anglo-Solomon hospitality traditions, and we are proud that even though the shareholding has widened to include long-serving staff members, Agnes Lodge is still a 100% owned Solomon Islands company.
During your stay with us you will get to meet many of Agnes' children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nephews and nieces. Not only is the Lodge local in most of its ways, you will be living very close to adjacent local villages where you can observe traditional Solomon Islands life and become involved in our local culture.
