Lope Lope Adventure Lodge, East Coast, Espiritu Santo.
The ‘wow’ factor? Absolutely. Santo is well known for its untouched nature which is most certainly true. But, expect the unexpected because hiding in the jungle, there are all sorts of five-star facilities. Lope Lope Adventure Lodge is such a place and its restaurant/bar is, well, wow. It boasts an expansive deck right over the water, a huge bar, a towering natangora roof and a massive TV screen. As part of the elegance, local hard woods and quality finishes reflect the owners’ taste and grand vision. The menu brings together flavours from all over the world – you probably weren’t expecting to find a South African ‘Potjie Kos’amongst its dishes or a ‘Castle Lager’ on the beer menu. Popular with the local castaways is the Friday night pool competition and for the sports lovers, watch the games on the big screen. Is there more? Well, yes, high-end accommodation, horse rides and more. Ph: 36066 Email: [email protected] Web: www.lopelopeadventurelodge.com.
