A great place to stay in Vila. When I arrived at the airport I was picked up by a very nice young man, Thomas. Return transfers only $10. The place was quiet, friendly with a lovely waterfront veiw. Clean & tidy. It's not too far from town and for only a few dollars Thomas will drop you off to anywhere... More

We had a lovely family holiday here for one week. The Bungalows are comfortable and perfect for a family of five. The bathroom was a little tired but clean, we had intermittent hot water and a shower that tended to leak onto the floor. The gardens were lovely and a nice place to spend the day. Tara beach is off... More

We stayed in Tara Beach for two nights before flying out to Tana Island the next morning. First of all, the bungalows are very nicely furnished with flowers all over and they are very clean. Not every bungalow has hot showers though. Chistine, the cook is very nice and just sits with you for a chat. Having said that, the... More

I cannot imagine a more welcoming location. Sala and his family and staff were very warm and friendly. I stayed for a week and feel like I have left with real friends on the other side of the world. My list of favorite things about Tara Beach is long: snorkling, kayaking, being dazzled by the darkness of the sky and... More
