The perfect getaway
on Aug 29, 2016
A beautiful spot indeed. Comfortable and we'll equipped bungalows with installed hot water system, good range of available activities, child friendly settings, friendly and reliable staffs, cool breeze are a few things that make Ropiko unique. Some suggestions - improve power supply to accommodate hot water system, staffs prepared to work 7 days, sell alcohol, improve access to wi-fi. Will be a boost to the business if ghatokae airstrip is reopened so tourists can have the option of quick arrival or enjoy lagoon boat ride to seghe. Otherwise, Ropiko classic na!
Amazing Ropiko Beach Resort
on May 8, 2016
I spent a weekend at the Ropiko Beach Resort on a travel photography assignment for the resort.... That classy resort is not just for family vacation. There are many outdoor activities to do there; bird watching, fishing, village tours, photographing, visit to a nearby community school, and an adventure into a cave with lots of bats and shrimps in it. It's about 300 meters to walk into that cave.
One cool thing about that resort is the access to wifi. Weh posted alot of photos into Face Book from there. Great experience there with another fellow photographer and writer, Julian!

Beautiful place, beautiful people. Brand new, pristine accommodation in a serene setting. The resort doesn't have the same range of activities as nearby wilderness and uepi resorts, but staff are more than happy to transport you to other resorts and locations for scuba diving, spear fishing, snorkeling etc. No request was too much trouble. We visited other resorts and the accommodation at Ropiko was honestly much better - newer and cleaner, and significantly cheaper. Staff made bonfires for us on the beach each night at our request, and the resort even had working free wifi. Avoid leaving/arriving on Saturday as the owners are SDA and won't do boat transfers on Saturday. They will arrange another boat to come from Seghe, but this is at significant extra cost. Overall, a beautiful, secluded place.
Fresh, clean and friendly

Ropiko Beach Resort is brand new, located on a beach overlooking a bay, with the bungalows enjoying a beautiful fresh breeze. Even though our hut had 24 hour power, we didn't need to use the fan in our bedroom because it was so cool and fresh. The high ceilings in the hut and big louvred (and flyscreened) windows also kept us really comfortable. Our family bungalow was generously sized, with a dining table and a small kitchen including fridge and microwave so we were able to mix some self-catering with meals in the dining room. Generous serves of fresh local fish were complemented with beautiful fruit platters. The team at Ropiko worked hard to look after us - we went on a day walk to a nearby village, over the water to Wilderness Lodge for an amazing dive - nothing was too much trouble. Give this one a go - it's really lovely accommodation and service in an amazing setting.
Ropiko Eco Lodge

Serenity at it best. we stayed in the bungalow on the waters edge.. Divine. Extremely friendly family. the grounds were clean and full of orchards and coconut palms and even a ww11 plane in the garden. nothing was too much. Highly recommend. if you are looking for a hammock under a tree on the waters edge with crystal clear water and let the stresses of the western world left far far behind, then I highly recommend.
