Beware of expensive ripoff day trips!!!
The Resort itself is beautifully located right on a coral water front with a small sandy beach next door. The grounds are kept very tidy. They offer scuba diving. Wifi is in main area only and slow. The management are very cold and unapproachable. Beware of the day trips on the white board at reception that are not otherwise advertised on flyer or website. We were taken for a run around to collect Kava and coconuts by our driver with a very bare mean lunch and 2 bottles of water to last for a hot 9 hour day on the road. When we got back I went to the manager who got red-faced and was incredibly loud and rude towards me for what had happened, saying he wasn't there in the morning to supervise....!!? When I returned after I gave him space to cool down, he agreed to a half day discount, which was barley satisfying for a full wasted day of our 2 night stay and priced in Australian Dollars was super expensive. Discussing behavior that left a nasty taste in our mouth. We met traveller's at the airport who stayed right next door and had a bbq made on the beach and went to a village and met local's saw the traditional island living and had a terrific day on the same day for a much lower price.

I had a great time here - a fabulous team who were all very friendly. Just a beautiful place in a beautiful part of the world. And the volcano tour is incredible. :-)

Beautiful setting with access to amazing snorkelling just across the reef, a range of tour options and great food ( expensive - standard for Tanna). Service was very professional and friendly. Easy 5 min drive to airport.

Not as expected
The staff are nice. We have booked a room with ocean front, but when we arrived they didn’t have any free (there is only a few). After complaining we got a room, from where we could have a glimpse of the water, if we looked thru trees and bushes and between houses. Not as expected from the booking. The water in the shower is either boiling or freezing. Nothing between. The internet is unreliable so if you are lucky you can have a mail or perhaps a website. You are stocked at the resort. The only possibility is to by their expensive tours. Food is ok but not cheap. Drinks and wine are very expensive.

Kleinschalig hotel met leuke huisjes aan zee
Mooi complex met hutjes verspreid over het terrein. Zwembad is klein en ligbedden staan verspreid over het grasveld. Geen strand bij het hotel, maar via een steiger loop je zo de zee in waar je kunt snorkelen. Eten is goed, excursies keurig geregeld vanuit het hotel en de transfer van en naar de luchthaven is gratis.

Resort petit et douceur de vivre vue magnifique
Un resort très bien tenu avec des bures très cosi au milieu d’un jardin magnifique et vue mer a recommander chaudement Bonne nourriture personnel Compétent et vue magnifique sur le pacifique sud plein d’excursions possibles mais comme toujours dans cette région prix largement excessifs Notamment le mont yasur Les chambres sont simples et très confortables et d’une très bonne tenue . Un endroit idéal pour se reposer et profiter du calme avec cette vue incroyable sur les récifs et l’ocean Avons même vu des baleines depuis notre chambre . Le tout intègré magnifiquement et très bien conçu
