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

Towoc Bungalows was a terrific 5 nights for us and a great halfway hourse between basic bunbgalows in a village to resort style accommdation. 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...

My wife and I stayed as guests at Towoc for five nights this last December. Janeth is a wonderful hostess and cook, and all of the meals are hand prepared and delicious -well worth the wait! We found all of the family and staff to be very pleasant and helpful arranging transfers and with local excursions. No problems with any... More

It is with regret that I am writing this review. As the Towock Bungalows were recommended to us by a friend, and appears to have some stunning reviews. I want to share our experience to try and warn and equip other travellers. We stayed in the beachfront bungalows, with a bathroom ensuite. Far from simple, I would say they are... More

Towoc is a gorgeous spot to relax for a few days. We stayed in one of the back bungalows for the first night. The bungalows (4500vt) are simple but well constructed and comfortable, with decent beds and mozzie nets. But the communal shower was broken so showering consisted of trying to wash off with a hose nozzle - not ideal.... More

This place was a perfect balance between a low cost authentic local experience while still being accessible and feeling safe and comfortable. Around half a dozen people there at a time so it's quiet but with the option of being sociable if you feel like it. Janet is a gem. Oh and I had a great mattress!

Towoc was a fantastic experience. We stayed 3 nights and could not recommend it highly enough. No fancy smancy bed linen, in room facilities or interweb. Bathroom is a walk from most bungalows, and if animals noises at night disturb you, perhaps another property would suit better. But the thing that makes Towoc special is the hospitality, honesty and integrity... More

We spent six nights in July at Towoc in a bungalow with an ensuite. The ensuite bungalows are simple, clean and perfectly located close to Towoc beach. Mosquitoes were not a problem inside as the ensuite bungalows have screens. The LED light was enough for all but reading, so if you plan to read at night, a headlamp would be... More

In the review from Airbus 100 he wrote that the taxi from Luganville to Towock is 400vt, I think that he means 4000vt, It is about 1 hour and 20 minutes from Luganville and this price is for 1 person and goes up for 2. Prices for 2 to 5 persons in the taxi cost the same though, not 100%... More
