Just returned from a seven night stay. Having travelled to Vanuatu on many occasions I must say this trip was wonderful.. As stated before if you want the hustle and bustle of Port Vila then this is not the place for you. If you want all the basics covered at a very reasonable price then you will not beat this... More

We spent three wonderful and relaxing nights here. It was exactly what we were looking for from our trip to Vanuatu - a little bungalow overlooking a beautiful bay, relaxing in the sun, doing a bit of snorkling, then a bit more relaxing, bit more snorkling... Wonderful! Wish I was still there. This is the perfect spot to stay if... More

This is one of those places that I don't even want to review because I want to keep it my little secret. :) But Gideon and his family are wonderful, and I want their business to succeed, so alas... If you want the Hyatt or some resort with fancy robes, don't come here. If you want a suitable little bungalow,... More

We were traveling in their off season and were the only guests at the time. The lady who shoed us around was super friendly and pleasant. The bungalows are set in beautiful tropical garden with a nice view to the beach which is also reasonable for swimming and snorkeling. But the water was cloudy when we were there. The bungalow...

My husband and I first started visiting in 2007and were last there in December 2011, we discovered beautiful Havannah Harbour and the Eco Lodge run by local Ni-Vanuatu man Gideon George. Back in 2007 we had to navigate the rough and ready dirt road from Vila - but now it is sealed. Back then we had to completely self cater... More

We have stayed here many times and truly love it! The accommodation is pretty much just a step up from camping, but the location is sublime and the local people delightful. The bungalows are just a few steps from the water, where you can snorkel and see coral and beautiful fish like Nemo and even turtles. The Harbour is very... More

We stayed two nights at the Havannah (not to be confused with the $500 a night Havannah just up the road), mainly to get away from Port Vila for a few days and snorkel ourselves silly. As you bounce your way down the potholed drive you wonder what you've gotten yourself in to - then the forest opens up to... More
