We spent 3 nights at Sarangkita at the end of our Vanuatu trip. It's a really lovely setup, outside Vila and right on the ocean. We stayed in the Matahari Suite and it was every bit as enjoyable as we'd hoped - the photos don't really do it justice! In spite of the intimidating warning signs, the dogs are very... More

Sarangkita is an ocean front property. The residence and "two" guest houses are set back from the ocean, and surrounded by very well kept grounds. These grounds and houses are also very well protected by Christiana's very loyal dogs. The Matahari was attached to the main house via a small walkway and the lap pool, and was comfortable enough. There... More

Beautiful! Amazing accomodation, peace and quiet. Beautiful food. You can watch the sunset from the rock pool having a sunset drink. The most difficult decision of the day is to swim in the ocean or the pool go for a walk or read in the sunchair :)

Our experience at Sarangkita was one of ultimate relaxation and indulgence, that totally exceeded our expectations in every way. We spent the first 2 nights of our 8 night Vanuatu honeymoon at Sarangkita and it was by far the highlight of our holiday (we also spent 6 nights at Tamanu on the beach). Christiana is a fantastic hostess and an... More

I had the privilege to spend time at Sarangkita at several occasions. It always was a great pleasure, time out and away from daily life. The property is splendid, giving the feeling of seclusion and privacy. The balinese-style compound is beautifully landscaped and has direct access to the ocean and white sand beach. The houses are tastefully furnished and comfortable.... More

I'm a very picky traveler but when a travel experience achieves perfection I'm not afraid to tell people about it. Lots of places offer droopy palms on tropical beaches but Vanuatu tops them all for wild, pristine, remote beauty. The best, most private, most luxurious place to stay is definitely Sarangkita. The location is stunning, on the biggest private beach... More

Sarangkita is unique in Vanuatu, from its stylish Balinese-inspired architecture to its absolute beachfront position, it enjoys the added advantage of its gourmet cook hostess Christiana. Having stayed in many places in Vanuatu over a 20-year time span, this is a must for anyone looking for something akin to a private spa-like experience accompanied by great food and a peaceful...
