Definitely the best location for a trip to the volcano. The huts are basic, with shared toilet and a very hit and miss cold shower, but that becomes insignificant when you can hear the volcano erupting and feel the vibrations throughout the village. We arranged a 4am trip up to the volcano, we were on the rim of the volcano... More

The lodge is located at the entrance of the volcano. The whole night we could hear and feel the rumbling of the volcano eruptions which was great experience. We were late for the sunrise visit and therefore went for early morning 4am visit and was a unforgettable experience of the volcano lava bursting out. The lodge has all the basic... More

Jungle Oasis Bungalows will stay an unforgettable human experience thanks to Kelson, Philippe and Patrick, who permitted us to live our first active volcano discover with pleasure. The perfect place of bungalows, just close to entry for Mont Yasur is one the best advantage. Meals are delicious and our bungalow located in a tree was very warmly and original for... More

We didn't stay overnight here, but Jungle Oasis was responsible for our day tour to Mt Yasur. We bought the package through Air Vanuatu and our hotel (Eratap). I therefore can't comment on overnight accommodation. The tour included transfers to and from Tanna airport, lunch at Jungle Oasis and transport to the volcano. The driver was excellent, but there was... More

First thing to mention is this is far from luxury, and is extremely basic. So before booking here, decide what you want from your trip to Tanna and what you - and the person/people you're travelling with can cope with. If you are happy enough to put up with basic, then you'll probably be ok. If you like things a... More

I stayed here with a friend for one night, and we both loved it. To be honest, if you are going to judge this place by Western standards, and are expecting an overly comfortable, luxurious stay, then this probably isn't the place for you. What can be expected is a basic, yet very clean bungalow stay very close to the... More

Nightmare sums up our (wife & I) experience at this establishment. We have never been so relieved to leave anywhere. The list of complaints I left in the visitors book was a page of A4. It is hard to know where to begin. The main issue was the filth and sharing our bed with a large rat. The manager Kelson... More

We booked 3 nights in jungle oasis, including the volcano entry and guide, with the help of Janelle from Travellers Motel in port Vila. She already told us that we were guinea pigs because she had some problems with Kelson before - people complained about no working toilets and showers and that the food there was not good (one guy...

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights, towards the end of a month long Vanuatu trip. By this time we had grown accustom to sleeping without a fan, bugs in our room, outside bathrooms, cold showers, bumpy rides and dirty feet. We had learned to go with the Vanuatu flow. We found Jungle Oasis to be reasonably comfortable,... More
