A lovely property that is trying to survive after cyclones and lockdowns. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The property is clean. The food is generous and fabulous. The Snorkeling is wonderful, better than a lot of Islands. Hopefully maintenance and upgrades can be in their future plans.

The local staff were excellent. They tried their best. The property is in a state of disrepair. Price is very expensive for what you get.

lovely and wram resort
I really love this island, the staffs in this hotel are really professional and devote their best effort to make sure you enjoy your stay. Due to weather conditions, my original schedule was completely disrupted, and my flight was canceled in the last mins. I called this hotel to ask them whether I can change my reschedule stay. They said its ok, and tell me that I should come to the hotel ASAP because the storm is coming, and it was dangerous to travel in poor weather conditions in Port Vila. Once I arrived, they help me to move my luggage in the heavy rain. I in fact stayed in this resort for 6 nights. The staff provided their best service to me. In addition, they help me to deal with the worst service airline in the world, Vanuatu Air. To be honest, the resort has been closed for 3 years, and during my stay, I saw the staff and the hotel owner still working on making this resort back to its best after the pandemic. In addition, the view and environment are so nice under good weather beyond words can explain. During night time, walking on the beach and seeing the milky galaxy, walking around the garden, etc. anyway, stay in this hotel for few days is nice experience and I will like to comeback.

This is a gorgeous island. Accommodation is basic but very comfortable. Be aware there is no air conditioning when booking. It was clear that the resort has been severely impacted by Covid/cyclones but they are working very hard to rebuild. They only re-opened in December 2022. A very enjoyable place to stay. I would definitely recommend and would stay again. Do yourself a favour and stay here. The snorkelling directly out the front of the restaurant is some of the best we saw on our travels around Efate. Plus the underwater post office is a plus!

Peaceful and relaxing sanctuary...apart from when passengers from cruise ships in Port Vila visit - but resident guest areas (including small but lovely pool) off limits to them! Restaurant offerings limited but tasty and plentiful - fish coconut curry a standout! More could and should be done to protect the house reef from damage - signage at the (superfluous) shoreside steps is ineffective. There is opportunity for (brief) education of guests about coral reefs and the importance of their protection (globally, as well as locally) which would at least make a plea of ignorance implausible. Bungalow (9) accommodation very comfortable with beautiful sea view, reached by pleasant garden pathway stroll. Repair of (corrugated metal) roofing required where free edges corroding badly, otherwise more extensive (& expensive) roof repairs await. Resort staff are this place's singular asset - outstanding! Only one significant complaint - as we booked HIR specifically on account of their scuba dive centre, it was disappointing to learn on arrival that it had not yet reopened after Covid shutdown - a fact which should have been available on their website, or made clear in response to our (unanswered) enquiries about booking diving. All was not lost, however, as we did manage to organise one day of diving with Jerry's Dive Services - seems he's something of a scuba legend in Vanuatu, and certainly we can recommend him unreservedly!
