We were spending the day exploring Havannah Bay, hoping to find somewhere for lunch in one of the several bars, restaurants on the sea sgore. Unfortunatly pretty much everywhere was closed in Feb. We have stopped at Gideons Landing before for transport to Tranquillity Resort but didnt realise they did lunch . The food was delicious , a small but... More

We had a terrific day and were very impressed with the flexibility that was shown around our diverse group with one older person. It still was very direct and interesting and a real life experience for all. We didn't stay overnight but it was well worth the trip up from Port Vila. We saw the famous cave and had a... More

Fantastic beach and coral outside but the bungalows were in poor condition, floor was covered in slime, shower didn't work properly, no hot water, insects, grit and dirt over everything. beds were comfortable but no ceiling fan,...

We spent 7 nights at the beginning of Sept 2014. We stayed in one of the new bungalows that had only recently been built - lovely! - at the far end, so pretty quiet. Huge covered deck with solid table and really comfy chairs made for a great outdoor lounge. Best of all, the water is only 4 or 5m... More

We have just returned from another stay at Havannah Eco Lodge and I just wanted to update my previous review as a lot has changed since we last visited. This trip we stayed in one of the two new bungalows and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. These bungalows are absolute waterfront with views to die for and have new comfortable beds... More

Whilst on a self drive circumnavigation of the island came across this resort in time for lunch. The food was excellent and service like all of Vanuatu very friendly and attentive. Great place if you are in to most forms of water sports with a beautiful swimming beach. Away from town but only 20minutes to centre of Port Villa. Very... More

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
