What can I say: perfection. My partner and I spent 5 nights here, and what a holiday it was. Great location on a quiet beach, perfect for snorkelling, clear bottomed kayaking and paddle boarding (all complementary). A really good mix of just chilling and enjoying your surroundings. Tracey and staff are so welcoming and look after you like family. They... More

We have just spent 4 days at the beautiful Moyyan and it truly is not enough. From the moment you arrive in lovely Santo you feel a sense of relaxation, and it only gets better once you arrive at Moyyan. Tracey and her lovely staff are on hand to make you feel welcome, and a lovely Breakfast awaits you. The... More

The staff at Moyyan are one of many things that make this hotel special. They are intuitive, knowing what you need, before you even need to ask. You can stay a few nights here and you will without a doubt relax and unwind. Whether you want to dive a wreck or just watch a movie in bed, they will help... More

We spent 8 nights at Moyan for our honeymoon. It was a beautiful beach front bungalow on beautifully kept grounds with lots of snorkelling out the front. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, the food was absolutely amazing (we miss it already!!), and all the tours and services available were great. Tracey who manages the resort is an... More

We did not stay at Moyyan house, we had lunch there. we were on a small group tour and where we supposed to have lunch was ridiculously crowded so our tour guide asked manager Tracey if we could lunch there. She graciously allowed us and then we got a beautiful and well priced lunch in a stunning location. We were... More

We are not long back from 5 nights at Moyyan and knew after less than 24 hours we'd be back. I can't thank Tracy and her team enough for making us welcome and for creating a holiday we will never forget. Tracy stayed up until 10:30pm waiting for us as we had been delayed in Port Vila for 6 hours... More

This was an absolute treat for us. Moyyan House is in a great private location whilst still giving easy access to the beautiful blue holes and other exceptional attractions on the island. Beautiful snorkeling right off the beach, clown fish, angel fish, every kind of fish you could imaging in tropical waters! If you are very lucky you will see... More

So many enduring memories from Moyaan, situated directly on Barrier Beach the outlook is perfect, the food is sensational, above all else the staff were so friendly, helpful and respectful. The surrounding region provides numerous tours and treks, with Moyaan offering the absolute nirvana when returning from these adventures. The local tourism industry is working very diligently and successfully at... More
