  • 4.0.Fair

    No joy

    Vanuatu is a poor country and sure, these bungalows are luxury, be it a bit run down. However, hospitality does not cost anything, and the way this place is run is unwelcoming and cheap. It has a negative and cold atmosphere. It did not spark joy.

  • 6.0.Good

    Very mixed feelings about this 'Resort'... Upon arrival, it was not what I expected based on photographs and the description on Expedia. Photos were very misleading and cleverly done to hide the fact that the resort is not on an accessible beachfront, the only way into the water is down a ladder off a jetty - as the waterfront is untraversable rocks. You have to walk 25-30 minutes up the road to get to an accessible/sand beach area. The swimming pool is very small compared to the size it appears to be in the photographs. We were not aware that the only dining option is the one small restaurant on the resort. The next closest restaurant is 30 min walk away. However, the evening meals we had there were always very nice and of good quality. The same can not be said for the 'complimentary' breakfast. It was nice to be away from Port Vila - by the water. It is quiet and peaceful. The downside of this placement means you have to arrange a bus or taxi every time you want to go on a trip or leave the resort. Management will do this for you, but it obviously costs every time - and we didn't find it cheap. The bungalow was spacious and well equipped if you wanted to cook for yourself - but a trip to get food meant a bus or taxi ride. Based on the facilities on this property I think the word 'resort' is a bit misleading. it is a collection of 16 or so bungalows, in pleasant gardens with one small restaurant and a small swimming pool.

    Boutique self contained resort on reef waterfront

    Comfortable and spacious self catering 2 bedroom bungalow on the water. All staff friendly and as it is a small resort everyone gets to know each other (staff and guests) Good snorkelling right out the front and great restaurant on site. No sandy beach if that’s what you want, but didn’t bother us. 400vt pp each way to town from resort

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great spot to stay. Quiet area, great landing by the water where we had 5 o’clock drinks with other residents a few times. Well managed with plenty of help, quality meals at the restaurant, incredibly comfortable villas with large rooms, kitchen and balcony. Very friendly environment. 20 mins out of Port Vila. Thoroughly enjoyed our 7 day stay. Easy Bbus access from the villas to anywhere

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Some of the facilities were a little tired, but all were scrupulously clean, and worked.The constant breeze kept temperatures balmy, but sometimes whipped up the sea to make snorkeling difficult.Once in the water there was never any current so it was very safe unless too close to the top of the reef. Feeding the many large fish was a delight for some of the guests. The staff were very friendly, and Gerry and hubby made sure every wish was made possible. Highly recommended. Transport was easy if a little expensive, although that is normal in Vanuatu.

    Nice place. Little out of town but you can get buses quite easily. The jetty was awesome for snorkeling coral and fish were very plentiful and majic.

    Excellent small resort away from Port Vila in shaded tropical setting with a healthy coral seascape at the bottom of the garden. Excellent restaurant run by the wonderful resort manager Gerry who ensures the stay is magical. We will return.
