We made a last minute decision to see the Mt Yasur Volcano. So glad we did, it was the highlight of our whole trip. We were unable to book with Unity so we booked with Air Taxi & stayed at the Evergreen Resort. I was a little apprehensive after reading a few reviews on here ... but so glad I... More

Like many, if not most people, we went to Tanna to see the volcano, Mt Yasur. We stayed at Evergreen on recommendation from friends who had travelled there, and their recommendations were spot on. The accommodation was great, comfortable and spacious, and the food most enjoyable, the included breakfast a combination of fruit, toast tea/coffee. We found all the staff... More

The Tanna Evergreen team, or family as they have become were touched by your words Webster. It is interesting to see that as a rule of thumb we receive higher compliments from guests who stay longer than the ones who have shorter stays. Guess it is to be expected as one needs the time to relate to the place and... More

Stay here overnight for the twilight volcano tour. Rooms are primitive but the owner obviously made a great effort to create a good and comfortable environment. Food are surprisingly good except the 'daily special' !! But it is very relaxing. Will definitely go back if I visit vanuatu again

Keep in mind Tanna is a very remote place and island life is a bit slower paced. The main road is dirt. Don't go to Tanna expecting luxury. But do go there expecting relaxation and a once in a lifetime experience. We stayed at the Evergreen Resort for a couple nights as a side trip to our Port Vila trip.... More

Service was fine. Accommodation was nice, but a lot of the public areas were still under renovation. There was no real place to swim, there was no real beach, just rocky coast. tomato soup, fried rice, burger were nice. Lots of flies and mozzies.

This place was rated highly but didn't live up to expectations. The food was really nice but we wouldn't go back a all. It killed our Vanuatu vibe. Their description of themselves was all bull. It's NOT on the beach and under renovation. Being close to the airport was one of the fea good features.

This was my favourite spot in Vanuatu. Not a smart resort but interesting built with the coral walls & swept sand between the bungalows. The food was good although the supply of certain things (like dairy) is unreliable. The manger was very attentive & chatty - good to have in a low key resort. They are in the middle of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Evergreen" as the resort is more commonly referred to is 100% locally owned and known for excellent value for money. It operates the largest touring vehicles fleet on Tanna island with daily excursions to all the top spots such as daily tours to the volcano at noon, twilight and evening. The resort is set under the shade of a giant banyan tree and numerous palm trees with endless ocean views, cooled by ocean breezes. The location is a snorkeller’s paradise with pristine coral reef 50 meters in front of the resort. Eco-tourism is natural to us, as protecting our land, sea and culture is essential to surviving on this island. We want to encourage other Ni-Vanuatu’s to work for their own and their country’s economic independence. You could say, self reliance is our greatest motivation and we take this opportunity to thank the thousands of people we have had the pleasure of looking after in their discover of our island and who in kind have helped us grow, especially well known local resort managers/developers John and Silvana Nicholls have joined us to take the resort on its next growth phase which will establish this resort as one of Vanuatus’ iconic places to experience. ... more   less
