Beautiful resort in wilderness

Everything was good, unique bungalow warm and helpful staff. But everything here are expensive than other resort. I could understand because you find nowhere to eat no convenience store except in this resort.

Hotel is nice for a short stay

Hotel is probably the nicest on Tanna, but for the price, should be cleaner. Our main issue was the food, as there are no other options nearby, and it was very expensive (and not great quality). Menu looked great, but the meals that arrived were disappointing.

Slice of Paradise

Lovely little resort in remote location. Activities exceptionally well organised. Charming rooms and great hot water shower for Tanna. Very good massage in spa by therapist. Food good but usually overcooked and avoid the rubbery eggs for breakfast. The toast and bread are fresh made and taste great. Restaurant staff will eventually come and take your order and then steadfastly avoid eye contact the rest of your meal and whip your plates in and out with barely an opportunity to ask for a drink or dessert. They are lovely people so may just be an issue of lack of training or cultural resistance. They will not think to ask about replacing empty drinks, if you want dessert or anything else during your meal or during the lengthy period waiting for it to arrivevetc and it can be very hard to attract their attention to make any such request which can prove rather frustrating. A dessert ordered by a couple will never occur to them to bring 2 spoons or to ask any ordinary common sense questions.

Pros: The smiling staff, the views, and of course, the volcano!
Cons: The managementy - both of them were seriously unfriendly and didn't smile once. You are working in a paradise, make a bit more of an effort.
Location: Away from it all
