Poingam Lodge – Poum

Nicknamed ‘End of the World Hotel’, the Poingam Lodge is situated right at Northern tip of New Caledonia, near the village of Poum. This previously ruined ‘gîte’ was totally renovated and restored by Jean and Josy Broudissou who took over in 2000. Each room is individually decorated with the artistic touch of the owner! This little paradise off the beaten track is worth the effort to get there!
