Towok is a great place - something you won't experience anywhere else. We stayed 4 nights in a waterfront bungalow - we got half the family bungalow as we wanted separate beds so we had a bit of extra room. The property is a little hard to describe...it's sort of a combo camping/farmstay/homestay/lodge. You need to be a bit adventurous... More

It is the perfect place for placing your tent in Santo. We have camped there for 4 or 5 nights (not sure anymore) and it was simply magic. The place is so peaceful and quite and green! We paid 1000 VUV/ night/ tent which is really good compared to Vanuatu prices. We had placed our tent under a little hut... More

Stopped here for lunch. I know it's Vanuatu but it took 2.5 hours to get our meal. While we waited, we checked out the establishment's accommodation ... western price for less than ni-Van standard. This place needs to lift it's act if it's going to compete with other places on the island of Sant

Stayed here for 4 days during May 2015 and had the entire place to ourselves. The most beautiful place I have stayed. The Ocean on your doorstep with a swimming area that is safe for all ages. Although there is no hot water for the shower & no 240 volt power to the bungalows this only added to such a... More

Towoc bungalows offer a true vanuatu experience, not a resort run and owned by overseas interests, Janeth, Peter and her family run and own the place, bungalows are set on the waters edge in a rural setting with cattle, pigs and chickens likely to pass by. Most of the food is grown in the family vege patch up the hill.... More

It must be said, these bungalows are set amidst some pretty fantastic scenery. Champagne beach is a 6 minute walk away, and Towok beach isn't anything to scowl at either! We stayed in the "family bungalow" which was clean and efficient. We are not picky travellers and more than happy with the basics - a cold shower is still a... More

I spent 5 nights here with my family, we all loved it very much. Every morning you can collect fresh spring water (champagne water) straight from the edge of the beach, it tastes amazing! Speaking of tasting amazing, Mary's pancakes, yummo! Made fresh every morning and served with massive fruit platter(picked straight from the tree to you). Great breakfast. Most... More

We stayed 10 wonderful nights at Towoc Bungalow's, we came as travellers but left feeling like members of the family. A family whose smiling faces and generosity we will never forget. If you are looking for an authentic Vanuatan experience staying in a stunningly beautiful location, where you can engage with the family and have the privacy of your own... More

Towoc is not a European style resort. It is local bush accommodation. I have stayed at many local guesthouses and bungalows around the islands, and this is the best. The back bungalows are bush material on the top half and cement on the bottom half. This makes for clean, level floors that are easy to walk on, but with the... More

We stayed in one of the two beachside bungalows with separate toilet and shower (no hot water, but you didn't need it it was so warm). It was completely comfortable, although at 6000Vt a night the...
