Quiet resort recovering well from the recent tropical cyclone in March and with a welcoming owner and staff. Rebuilding work and landscaping work due for completion soon. A good place from which to visit Yasur volcano. The wifi service has not yet been restored, but should be soon.

We had the pleasure of staying at Tanna Lodge while doing an overnight tour of Mt Yassur. We had a beautiful bungalow right on the beachfront so we fell asleep to the waves crashing on the sand - I loved it but perhaps pack earplugs if you need silence to go to sleep. The bungalows are lovely and clean, and... More

Volcano trip is a must do . Awe inspiring . The trip there and back bone crushing but worth every bump. Make sure you stay for a few extra days to... More

Atmosphere, meals & service is fantastic. Management & staff are simply great, nothing is difficult. Accommodation is wonderful. Plenty to do, Only a short trip to the volcano. Short drive from the airport. Make sure you drop into the DJB shop just down the road & buy the greatest bread on Tanna, just ask for Walter & say Larry from... More

We were visiting the Mt Yasur volcano and required somewhere to stay for two nights while in Tanna. We are glad we chose to stay at Tanna Lodge. Clean accommodation, friendly staff, nothing was a problem. Always smiling and ready to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The meals were good and we enjoyed the fish. They offer airport transfers... More

A beautiful place to stay. Minor repairs were happening to the lodge after cyclone Pam, rooms and food were just beautiful. The outside shower was a real treat, not what we were expecting. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The local village use the stream that runs through the lodge to do their washing. Fascinating to watch. Beach has... More

I was on assignment in Tanna and my employers arranged for me to stay at Tanna Lodge. FANTASTIC FUN!!!! The hosts are awesome and food was good. I particularly liked the breakfasts all home made from the bread/ Jam/ Coffee :-) A real find!

If you ever go to Tanna (which you should), Tanna Lodge is for sure the right place to stay. Tanna is a lost paradise with a beautiful sea and amazing landscapes, enriched by the fantastic local traditions and culture. A must go, in your visit to Vanuatu archipelago. Regarding Tanna Lodge, probably the best choice in whole Island, it will... More

My partner gave me a side trip to Tanna for my birthday as I am fascinated with volcanoes and the opportunity to get up close and personal with Mount Yasur was a dream come true. Unfortunately due to the arrogance and laziness of the Tanna Lodge owner, the trip to the volcano turned out to be a dream almost too... More

We stayed here for a night as a part of Air Taxi Vanuatu's Yasur Volcano overnight tour. We came here 1 month after the Cyclone Pam. This place is the only hotel in Tanna (except Whitegrass) that still be open. We also took a tour to Yasur Volcano with them. They gave a room on the right wing. The room... More
