The lodge immediately creates a familiar atmosphere. Staff is local and friendly! Bungalows are clean and you get more than you can expect on this very remote island. Food was very expensive though and a soda costs more than a glass of red.....

We had a good rest at Tanna Lodge. We had room at the top of lodge on arrival. We asked if we could move to a beach front villa. Which was much much better. We loved the closeness of the sea and the banging of the waves. Loved talking to the locals and the young ones who are learning and... More

Tanna is an undeveloped Pacific Island. Dusty bumpy roads.and a real remote flavor. This is where Tanna Lodge fits into the environment. The bungalows are locally made, clean and comfortable. They easily accommodated a family of 5. There is nowhere to really eat apart from the hotel. The food is basic, and was fine. Don't expect 5 star dining. The... More

This is a part of vanuatu that many travelers miss, we were so glad we took the extra time and went to visit Tanna island, many locals in Port Villa told us, we were seeing the real Vanuatu. We found the island very remote and isolated from the western world, no local shops where you can get what you want... More

Well I read the reviews for this place and there were mixed reactions from the variety of people who visited here. For us I can say we loved the place! It is a little piece of paradise that is not saturated with tourism traffic. To the people who were negative about Tanna Island and the lodge - some advice, grab... More

As would become clear from just brief research Tanna Island is a very much an island yet to be overwhelmed by the modern world and therefore unsealed, bumpy roads and basic amenities are standard for this location. In this light it is remarkable a place like Tanna Lodge even exists given the level of detail that has gone into building... More

I was rather anxious before my stay here after reading many reviews. The place is certainly rustic but has a real charm to it. We were picked up on time from the airport and driven over the rough dirt roads to this "resort". It took about 20 minutes. After our welcome drink we were shown to our beach-front villa. I... More

I recently went to Tanna to see Mt. Yasur. I booked through Expedia which gave a listing of 3 hotels. 2 were available at the time with Tanna Lodge been the cheapest at 170$ AUD. Unfortunately i didn't do much research and thought these were the only accommodation available on Tanna . There are other types of accommodation here, which... More

Stayed 2 nights at Tanna Lodge and had the most amazing time. Exploring the black sand beach just steps from the restaurant. Walked arounf the lava formations on both sides the the sand - beautiful. Nothing around to distract from the nature and natural beauty but everything I needed to make sure my stay was comfortable. I did the Mt... More

We stayed at Tanna Lodge at the end of July for two nights. First impressions were not good and it only got worse. We were left waiting at the airport for nearly 2 hours for our transfer. When we finally arrived we were told that they had forgotten about us and didn't even receive an apology. We were quickly rushed... More
