I stayed 5 nights at Tanna Lodge with my friend. The lodge is situated on a beautiful tranquil beach. Fell asleep every night listening to the sound of the ocean. This place has been the most peaceful area I have ever experienced to date. What made it even more amazing were the friendly locals and staff that run the lodge.... More

I had a great few days at Tanna Lodge recently, and left feeling very well looked after. The staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful - even supplying us with a breakfast at 4am when we had an early start for the John Frum Day celebrations. The bungalow my friend and I shared had a great terrace overlooking the sea, the... More

We stayed at Tanna Lodge as part of our overnight trip to the Yasur vulcano. The lodge is beautifully located on the beach (not very swimmable!) and plenty of green. The lodge is basic and probably has seen better times but nevertheless is charming. Our room was VERY basic with a very odd but interesting shower set-up. We were visited... More

We stayed two nights in Tanna Lodge at the end of our Vanuatu trip and found it the perfect place to unwind and relax near the beach before our return home. The volcano was an amazing experience and the tours from the lodge made the trip hassle free. The lodge is located right on a black sand beach with easy... More

Weve just returned from a wonderful stay in Vanuatu which included 3 nights on Tanna Island where we stayed with the gorgeous Stella and Hugh at the Tanna Lodge. We had such a wonderful, relaxing and happy time during our time there. Our room though very organic, was quite comfortable and lovely, and possibly more than Id have expected in... More

We spent 3 days at Tanna Lodge. Volcano is a must do whilst staying on Tanna. Our sleeping bungalow with beach views (bungalow 12) was nice but was not fully enclosed and had an actual tree through the roof of the bathroom. Therefore allowing many mosquitoes and island animals into our room. We complained as this was the only bungalow... More

We had a amazing time at Tanna Lodge for a month. The owners and staff show professionalism and we can't wait to go back. Beautiful family the Lowes are and we where looked after very well. We are so very grateful for meeting the awesome family and staff.

We were worried initially about our 2 day trip to Tanna Lodge, as we were not sure what to expect & were travelling with kids. I have to say we were very pleasantly surprised. The Lowe family are very warm & welcoming & made us feel very comfortable. The lodge itself has a small bar & restaurant which had a... More

We stayed 2 nights in a Villa and 1 night in the Beach Front accommodation (extra night due to flight being cancelled). Honestly, to thoroughly enjoy, appreciate and understand Tanna Lodge, you need at least 2 nights there. If you want a completely different experience than what you would get at western-influenced resorts, then stay at Tanna Lodge. The majority... More

helpful and friendly staff in a lovely spot on a black sand beach. Great trips to see the different highlights of Tanna, and Mt Yasur the ever erupting volcano was a trip we'll never forget.. truly awesome!

Hotel Class:3 star — Tanna Lodge 3*
Official Description (provided by the hotel):
On the Island of Tanna, only 35 minutes flying time from Port Vila and a little over one hour flying time from Noumea. Within close proximity to the main town and only 20 minutes drive from the airport. We are established in a very private sheltered bay amongst extensive gardens and lush tropical foliage, on 4 hectares of interestingly contoured land. The site is unique in its topography, including to the rear heavily vegetated cliffs with large scale caves and tunnels, inaccessible other than from the resort. The resort is nestled in a sheltered private bay and fronts directly onto a large area of sand beach enveloped on both sides by interesting rock formations and coral reefs. ... more   less
