    Accommodation In Vanuatu

    With the buoyancy of a wine cork in the sparkling water of a ridiculously awesome beach, the community of the Vanuatu Islands has transformed itself from a remote archipelago into a must-see destination. As the blue waters and rushing waterfalls will tell you, this island nation makes bouncing back look good. Wanna escape to a waterfront destination with spirit and spunk? Vanuatu Islands holidays are perfect for you. Pack your bathers and sunnies and check out Wotif’s deals now!

    As you begin the search for hotels in the Vanuatu Islands, you have a tough decision to make: Sugar-white or golden sand? With 65 inhabited islands and islets to choose from, you’ve got to whittle the options down somehow, right? Perhaps you have your eyes on a little more city swagger. If that’s the case, book accommodation in Port Vila, the capital city located on the south coast of Efate Island. What are you waiting for? Get going already!

    Things to Do in the Vanuatu Islands

    If your holiday self craves coconut cocktails, lazy beach days and outdoor adventures, this is the place for you. Otherwise, well, snooze in a comfy Vanuatu Island hotel while your mates are out snorkelling through colourful coral reefs off the coast of Bokissa Island and hiking around Mount Yasur on Tanna Island.

    If you like chasing waterfalls, it’s time to grab your togs for some island-hopping. Drift down a river in Luganville on Espirito Santo Island, where you’ll end up beneath Mount Hope Waterfall. Once you’ve cleaned up and floated back to Efate, it’s time for some cultural immersion in Port Vila at Ekasup Village. Stop in for an event featuring traditional Melanesian dance, history and cuisine.

    And while you’re here, don’t forget the world that’s waiting beneath the ocean’s surface; learn about the finned fauna at Hideaway Island Marine Reserve from knowledgeable guides who can take you on an aquatic safari—no pith hats required.

    Getting To & Around the Vanuatu Islands

    Touch down at Bauerfield International Airport (VLI), about 6km north of downtown Port Vila. From there, you’re conveniently close to Vanuatu Island accommodation in Mele Bay or a ferry ride from other island hideouts. On land, catching a cab is the most efficient way to get around; look for license plates with the capital “T” for “taxi”, “travel” and “terrific”. Yeah, we made the last two up. Ferry services and boat tours are a breezy treat when you want to branch out to other sands.

    Upcoming Events

    Festivals in Vanuatu are anything but few and far between. Make your way to this South Pacific nation in early July and celebrate with the locals during the annual Yam & Magic Festival. The festival is held in honour of the harvesting of the main crop of the nation. There are custom dances, sand drawing demonstrations and magic stories about the yam. Who knew that an orange vegetable could possess powers like Harry Potter?

    Maybe you’d prefer to visit in early September; if that’s the case, great! You can hang around the Rah Island Canoe Race. Outrigger teams compete in a 30-minute sprint around Rah Island for various prizes. As a spectator, you can join in local festivities and eat some of the best food in Vanuatu. A nice drink of kava with a plate of fresh seafood is perfect for watching an outrigger race.

    Get Outside!

    You’re on a beautiful island surrounded by turquoise water filled with lively coral reefs. In other words, you’d be nuts not to go snorkelling. You may catch a glimpse of green sea turtles, clownfish (Nemo) and blacktip reef sharks. Just remember, sharks only bite when you touch their private parts.

    Trade the soothing realm of the ocean for the treetop canopy of the jungle. Strap yourself into one of the zip-line tours and go screaming above the jungle floor like one of the flying foxes that inhabit the area. Hang on for dear life and have some fun!

    If you really want to get high above the islands, take a City Helicopter Flight and Resort Landing. You’ll soar above the many moss-covered rocks that make up this amazing archipelago. Eventually, you’ll land at one of the finer places to stay in Vanuatu, where you’ll lay your head down in paradise.

    Must-See Spots

    If for some reason you’re only spending one day in Vanuatu, go for an easy hike to the Mele Cascades Waterfall. Leap from the top of the falls into the pool below or slide on your backside down the slippery rock face. It could be the ride of your life.

    So when are you getting out of town? Mix and match hotels and flights to the Vanuatu Islands to create your perfect getaway with Wotif!

    "Lovely resort in a great location."
    My family enjoyed a relaxing holiday at Iririki Resort. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We made use of various hotel facilities - pools, snorkelling, kayaking. The shuttle boat to town was very easy and there were various shops, markets and cafes close by. The resort is well presented and has lovely views over the lagoon and surrounding areas from lots of vantage points. We would recommend this resort to other families.

    A nice hotel boosted to great by its staff. Everywhere you turn is someone waiting to greet you or help you with whatever you need. Special shout out to restaurant and spa staff! Rooms are neat and comfy. Overall the grounds are well kept. Highly recomnended. You may find the decor of rooms a bit tired but not terrible. Also pool area was nice but can use a bit of shade.

    "Quiet location with great staff and restaurant"
    We stayed for seven nights and had a really good time. Nothing was too much trouble and the location just a few kms out of town was perfect. We were affected by the passing edge of Tropical Cyclone Cook so had one day stuck in our room. The management kept us well informed and made the necessary precautionary preparations just in case. The restaurant was excellent and just closed one evening when the worst of the rain and wind went through. They stayed open long enough to cook really good takeaway dinners to have in our room. This is not a really flash international type resort which is why we liked it so much. All the staff were lovely and were always smiling. Billing of meals and extras was completely accurate so there was no difficulty or disagreement at checkout time. We would stay here again if we are back in Vanuatu.

    "Great place in a great spot, awesome food"
    Had a very relaxing time here. Very friendly, genuine staff, the beach out the front is interesting (especially if geology is your thing), had great discussions with Hugh, who is putting in an admirable effort developing the lodge with great cooperation with the locals. The food was surprisingly delicious, very professional. The volcano (an excursion which the lodge arranged for us) - my lord, what an experience. The only thing I might say was that dear old Prince needed a wash haha.

    "Fantastic place to stay!"
    We spent 7 nights at Aore Island Resort and loved the experience. Very pretty island setting, lovely sea breezes, gorgeous beach and great restaurant. Very convenient to lots of fun activities on Santo whilst having a really comfortable base to return to in the afternoon. The huts had everything we needed and nothing we didn't - lovely accomodation in an unspoilt paradise. It was a great relief to be away from air conditioning and tv of Port Vila, but the fans, mossie screening and ensuites made the huts very pleasant to stay in. Everyone in the family really relaxed with books, swimming, playing cards and socializing with the other guests when we weren't out exploring Santo. We spent the first few days of our trip at a big international resort near Port Vila and we can say we all much preferred this - it had the friendly feel of a family-run resort but with everything done to a really high standard. Of the five resorts we visited on our trip this was by far our favourite. We can't wait to get back there and have told all our friends about it.
