We stayed at the Moyyan for 5 nights the weather was not kind to us (windy & rainy) but still we enjoyed it. Its a very quiet and relaxing place to stay. We stayed in Fare 5 which is the most private. The meals in the restaurant were delicious, the fare was cleaned each day. We visited a local school... More

I strongly recommand Moyyan House by the Sea. The place is simply perfect and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were staying in a very stylish, confortable and clean bungalow with an astonish sea view. It was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon and we will definitely come back. Thank you for this wonderful experience!

I couldn't have had a more special birthday with my 5 best friends. By coincidence (and luck) we had the place to ourselves for the first week making us feel a bit like rock stars! Although we weren't sure we were going to get there. We flew into Santo during a category 2 cyclone and Tracey the manager was at... More

This was our 6th trip back to Santo, but our 1st stay at Moyyan and we couldn't fault a thing! My husband and I travelled with my Mum and my Aunt (both in their 70's) and had 3 out of the 5 fares available. All had nice linen, comfy beds & good pillows. There were plenty of towels for both... More

My partner and I visited Moyyan House in October 2012 and loved it. It was in such a beautiful part of Vanuatu, away from the touristy feel of Port Vila and relatively untouched. Moyyan was perfect for us - the fares cannot be beaten with a large verandah and hammock to enjoy in the afternoons, to the relaxed but modern... More

This was a return visit to Moyyan, having celebrated our wedding anniversary here 12 months prior. The decision to return again this year was an easy one, we had such wonderful memories of the location and the beautifully warm friendly staff. Moyyan manages to capture the stunning natural beauty of Santo in a very private and secluded location. Combine this... More

This is our second trip to Vanuatu, our first to Santo and to Moyyan where we stayed for 5 nights in late January 2014. I can only agree with the previous overwhelmingly positive comments about Moyyan. It is in a stunningly, beautiful location, coral literally at the shore line. The physical buildings have been built around the existing trees. As... More

This was our first visit to Vanuatu. We stayed at Moyyan House by the Sea in January for our wedding anniversary after reading several reviews. We were not disappointed. The location was picture perfect. The white sand beach fringed with magnificent old overhanging trees, were the perfect beach umbrellas. The facilities offered by the resort were impressive, such as clear... More

We have just returned home to Vila after a weekend away at Moyyan. We were there with my boyfriend's parents for two nights and we were all very sad to leave. The weather was a little uncooperative but still nice enough for us to spend a whole day snorkeling & lazing on the beach reading one of the books provided... More

Moyyan is a beautifully designed and situated boutique resort. The way the bungalows are laid out among the incredible trees on the beach really sets this place aside from so many other beach front resorts - so special. The rooms are well designed and ours had awesome views of the water. Tracey who managed the resort when we were there... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Moyyan is located on Espiritu Santo, the largest island of the archipelago of Vanuatu. Moyyan sits on a white sand beach where the buildings entwine with large trees, all just twelve steps from the shoreline. Five spacious farés offer a contemporary feel for the tropics with the accent on understated luxury. The cool, open restaurant and bar opens out onto the beach and shares stunning sea views. Books and board games are provided for your enjoyment as you unwind into a completely relaxing holiday. We also have bicycles, clear bottom kayaks and snorkelling equipment available for our guests. Moyyan Day Spa offers hand, feet and body rituals, facials and massage indulgences using pure botanical and aromatic Waterlily products. Staying at Moyyan means you start the day as you end it - relaxed, rejuvenated, and looking forward to all that the next day will bring. Guests at Moyyan unpack their bags into contemporary beachfront farés. Each faré has a luxurious bathroom, modern furnishings, king sized bed and private deck. They are designed to capture the sea breezes and are continually shaded to provide a comfortable environment in the tropics. In line with Moyyan’s philosophy of treading lightly on this fragile environment, each faré is architecturally designed to work in harmony with the tropical climate. They are insect-proof and take full advantage of the sea breezes. Ceiling fans create a comfortable environment. ... more   less
