These bungalows, the village and the owners are nothing short of beautiful. Morris and his family are quite possibly the loveliest people I've ever met. They were so genuine and it was humbling to be made to feel so welcome and be thanked so much for visiting. Morris arranged everything for us, transport, guides, food, traditional dance, etc. Morris met... More

I stayed with Morris Poita and his lovely family for 4 nights at the end of April 2015, just 5 weeks after cyclone Pam. I was a bit apprehensive getting there and traveling on my own but as an experienced traveler i followed my nose. I definitely found the best place to stay and people to stay with. The volcano...

If you can do with very basic bathroom options you will get a 100% authentic island experience. Sitting on the porch in the evening watching the red glow over the rim is priceless. Morris and Suzie try everything to make guests feel like home. You can walk to the volcano in an hour or so, the way back is a... More

Every previous review has done a good job of describing the place and we loved it as we weren't expecting anything above camping however please note that while we were there Morris was in Port Vila arranging a proper flush toilet and shower so we were one of the last people to use the hole and bucket! This will be... More

My family had arranged to stay at Volcano Island Paradise Bungalows for 5 nights, staying in 2 bungalows while we explored the jungle, the volcano and village life on foot and at leisure. However, we left after only 2 nights due to the discomfort; one of our kids became ill (traveller's diarrhea) and the facilities weren't adequate for our developing... More

Morris and Suzie were very lovely hosts who invited us into their family run accommodation which consisted of authentic bungalow/huts made from bamboo. Morris started this accommodation to help his community to provide funding to assist children financially so they are able to attend school. Accommodation was clean, comfortable and basic. Don't expect to be able to charge your cameras/mobile... More

No visit to Vanuatu is complete without a visit to Mount Yasur. There are very few places in the world where you can easily hike up to the top of an active volcano and see it shooting lava bombs into the air up close. While it is possible to stay at one of the fancier resorts on Tanna and do... More

If you really want to know village life in Vanuatu, this is a great place to visit. The value is extraordinary and the service can't be beat. Amenities are comfortable and parallel with local living standards. I loved waking up each morning and writing/reading in the traditional house restaurant while listening to the volcano erupt and watching plumes of smoke... More

My girlfriend and I stayed with Morris, Susie and their 5 children for only 2 nights which was far too few for our liking! Volcano Island Paradise is a beautiful set of bungalows which are situated about a 60 minutes walk from the rumbling erupting crater of Mt Yasur! The view from the dining bungalow is absolutely pristine: looking across... More

The bungalows are in a quite nice surrounding and it's just amazing sitting on the terrace and watching the volcano! We went to the volcano by ourselves as we do not like taking guides. So Suzie, Morris' wife, accompanied us to the entrance of the volcano which was great as we wouldn't have found the way without her. From the... More
