Where do I start ? This place exceeded our expectations ! My husband and I spent 9 days here in plunge pool 10 just after the resort reopened from cyclone Pam and any worries we had due to the cyclone disappeared the moment we got there. During our stay we also got married at the resort and we couldn't be... More

Booked for 1 week and regretted it from the start, we should have stayed longer. Eratap is renowned for being the best resort in Vanuatu and we understand why, from the excellent location to the superb food and extremely friendly staff, my wife and I had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay. Villa 9 was superb with our own plunge... More

We first visited Eratap not long after it opened. We have been back a number of times since and have just returned from our most recent holiday. The resort reopened six weeks after the devastation of Cyclone Pam and after a massive effort by Tony and all the staff. The resort is operating as normal in every respect, the only... More

Just returned from a week at Eratap, celebrating my 50th birthday with my husband. Was not sure what to expect after Cyclone Pam, they have done a fantastic job to get the resort up and running again so quickly. We had a couple of days of rain, but still managed to entertain ourselves around the resort, and out and about... More

This was our second trip to Vanuatu; the first being 30 years ago for our honeymoon. This trip was to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and like others we chose Eratap Resort purely based on the Trip Advisor reviews. We loved the welcome to the resort with a lovely glass of fruit punch and our bags were already in our... More

My husband and I were privileged to spend our honeymoon at Eratap Resort. Without exception Eratap is picturesque perfection, the service is impeccable and the hospitality exemplary. There was nothing that was too difficult or too much effort. From meals on the adjoining islands to helicopter rides across Vanuatu, everything was taken care of. The only limitation to our holiday... More

It's been 2 years since my wife and I stayed at Eratap. Everything about this place is outstanding. It is hands down the best accommodation across the board in the region. We stayed at what was supposed to be the best in the Islands after Eratap and it was actually depressing. Tony and his team at Eratap do everything to... More

Stay at Eratap cut short by Pam but the experience prior to the event was up to the usual Eratap standard. Great accommodation, service, food and staff. Thanks to Tony for keeping us up to date following Pam great to see the resort will be back up and running soon. I encourage anyone considering a trip to Vanuatu to do... More

We had an absolutely wonderful week. The snorkeling on the reef immediately off the beach was fantastic - amazing variety of coral and tropical fish. The kayaks and pool were also nice diversions. But the main thing is that the staff and locatiuon made it wonderfully relaxing. The cultural shows on a couple of the nights were interesting and entertaining.... More

We arrived home a week ago from our second stay at Eratap, with no knowledge of the impending arrival of Cyclone Pam. Our thoughts are with all the wonderful people who make this an amazing place. We hope all at the resort and 'the village' are safe. During our first visit in March 2014 Cyclone Lusi visited Eratap - clearly... More
