Food: Delicious! I ate like a horse, and everything I ate was delicious!
Accommodation: Excellent. The bed was high quality, and very comfortable; the huts very clean, perfect holiday accommodation.
Location: Paradise; surrounded by pawpaw, breadfruit, banada, and coconut trees. Absolutely beautiful.
Staff: Friendly, talkative, most helpful. The Manager Ernest is a very genuine, warm, honest and warm character.
We were initially booked to stay at another resort in Vila, however when we arrived they regretfully informed us a double booking had been made, and alternative accommodation arrangements had been made at another resort. Well, what can I say, Nirvana was not only less expensive than our original stay, it was so much more beautiful! I have never been so glad for an accommodation mistake! Ernest, the owner of Nirvana, is such a friendly, helpful, and genuine person, and before we knew it we'd been welcomed into the Nirvana crew, were bundled into the van with all the staff and Ernest, heading out on an adventure to a Kava bar. And not any Kava bar either; a genuine, local haunt, best-kava-in-Vila Kava bar!
Given my other half spent years in Vanuatu, (Port Vila & surrrounds) in her teens, she's a very discerning judge of quality in the area. She was most impressed, and we were even more impressed by the quality of the relationship between Ernest and his staff. Ernest genuinely cares, and has visible genuine affection for those who work with him, and they him; and that's a rare thing to see between ex-pats and Ni-Van. They made us so welcome, and Ernest at all times made us feel not only most welcome as guests, but welcomed in to the circle of friendship between he and his staff.
I'm so grateful the mistake was made leading to our discovery of Nirvana. We both forged an unusual friendship for the circumstances with the staff, and the owner, of this patch of Paradise.
I cannot recommend Nirvana Resort enough to anyone, and very much look forward to returning to see Ernest & Jean-Paul again. It is exceptional value for money, and delivers a better experience than other, higher priced options elsewhere.
