Great place and great management. A great balance between adventure and relaxation! I would defiantly go back again! The rooms were great if you are up for a Eco resort style stay. A great way to get back to nature. Meals provided were also fantastic.

We spent 8 days at Tranquility on the week leading up to Christmas. As are large group of divers at different certification levels, the team managed to find interesting dives for all of us every day. Dive sites around the island are great and all within easy reach, special recommendation goes to Owen's Reef and the wreck of the MS... More

As a diver and snorkeller I was looking for somewhere Robinson Crusoe style to relax and wind down. Tranquillity Island Resort is ideal for the lone traveller or a family who doesn't want to spent vast amounts on a glitzy resort but still want all the mod cons. I just loved it, I had very gracious hosts in Bill and... More

Much too expensive for such a run down place. It might be ok if you are a diver but if not it's not worth staying there. The bungalow is old and run down. They are hiding the need for renovation behind the label "eco"! If you love big spiders then this is the place to be! They are everywhere -... More

My daughter and I stayed for 4 fantastic nights on Tranquillity and could have stayed forever. Beautiful location, basic but lovely accomodation and such great staff. Bill and Lisa are wonderful hosts and thanks to Lisa's immense patience I got comfortable diving in record time. Moso is gorgeous, the water is incredibly clear and the diving was exceptional. We would... More

We are so glad we decided to come to Moso Island and stay at Tranquility for a night. It is about a 30 to 40 minute drive over to Havanah Harbour from Port Vila and we were taken over to Moso on the resort dive boat. Bill and Lisa are dive masters and they manage the resort. They are wonderful... More

We have been diving around the globe for the past few months and no other dive site has compared to tranquility island. With crystal clear waters and incredible coral you are sure to see many rare sea creatures (we even sighted the age old nautilus). High quality dive gear and trained instructors, the friendly staff will make you feel at... More

I only came across this absolute 'diamond' of a diving base by chance. With a couple of poor days of weather in Port Vila, I thought it would be good to try a day of diving on the other side of Efate where so many people had told me “If the weather in Port Vila is poor then it is... More

Did a dive course here. It was a great dive and a great place to stay privately away from the busy-ness of Port Vila. The food was great, and they even served us directly at our own private cabin. We had a camp fire by the beach and then a hike the next day. All in all, a great place... More

We stayed at Tranquility Island last year, and had such a great time, we decided to return this year with extra friends and family. With a total group this time of 12 of us it was an absolute brilliant decision. Ranging from teenage nieces, and nephews to 72 year old parents,, everyone reckoned this was the feature of the trip!... More
