Most awesome holiday experience

Pros: The staff, food, accommodation and position on the beach.
Cons: Internet was very slow but I expect that is an issue of Vanuatu rater than the resort
Location: Tamanu is about 30min drive from Port Vila, located on the beach. You can get there by taxi, bus or hire car. Pickup and drop-off available.
We just loved it at Tamanu! We had spent 3 nights prior at the Warwick Le Lagon, and would say that Tamanu was substantially better. From the moment we first walked in to the moment we left, everything was taken care of for us by the wonderful and attentive staff. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable with wonderful views, sea breeze and air con. Our room (unit 4) was absolute beach front and a 30 second walk to the restaurant and beach. The menu is modern that highlights the produce in the area with a focus on seafood and fresh fruit and vegetable. The service is the best you will see, and the staff are always smiling and very personable. Dishes are plated and presented with elegance and detail and you can eat either in the resturant or your room. There is coral reef directly on the beach, and there are nice areas to swim in the area. At night, the staff lite a couple of fires on the beach and provided bean bags to sit on. We would say this is a must do place to stay for couples who like quiet sophistication and enjoy fine dining in a relaxing and beautiful setting.

Romantic get away

Pros: Location and atmosphere was fantastic.
Cons: Internet was too slow to do any work with
Spent Valentines day there and it was amazing. Had the coral bungalow ad fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Restaurant was good too and coconut vodka and cocktails were fantastic.
