I was only in Vanuatu for two days and the entire experience was quite wonderful primarily due to the friendly service and the lodge! Ian and his team ensure that the accommodations are clean and welcoming. We were pleasantly surprised and upgraded to a Lagoon waterfront cabin that is perfect for anyone looking for a private relaxing retreat, or a... More

Host Ian is always helpful and attentive, happy to give you some useful advises to help you save cost and enjoy the holiday. A few minutes walk to the town and the big supermarket, quiet and comfortable... More

We stayed four days at Seachange Lodge before flying to Santo and came back for another two nights before flying back to Melbourne. The lodge is located along Erakor lagoon and has a cool sea breeze. The rooms are nice and there is a lovely swimming pool on the property. But the best asset is Ian, the manager. He's a... More

I was part of a group of 7 who stayed at Vatu House (part of Seachange Lodge, a few doors down from the other lodgings) for 2 weeks, and was extremely satisfied with our time there. The location was ideal, being situated on a quieter back street overlooking the lagoon, yet a large supermarket was just a 5 minute walk... More
