We stayed at Nasama recently and had a wonderful break thanks to the location, accomodation and staff. 10 minutes out of Port Vila by local bus and a short walk or bus ride to other resorts is far enough away to provide added peace and quiet, but close enough to allow a wide range of options for activities and dining. The cooking facilities in the rooms (cooktop, microwave, toaster and kettle) and in the resort (BBQ) allow for good self catering if you wish, with supermarkets and local shops close by and a limited range of essentials at the reception shop. The starter pack of cooking oil, salt and pepper is a good idea and saves buying these when you only need small amounts. Alternatively, there are lots of restaurants in resorts close by if you want to avoid a ride into Vila. Nasama is on the smaller side and has large grounds with a number of different places to hang out; pool, kids pool, BBQ area, beach, or your balcony or patio all of which have great outlooks to the ocean which is just a few steps away from your room. The local busses are fantastic - wave your hand and they will pick you up and drop you wherever you like for a small fixed amount per person; sometimes with the added bonus of island music, interior disco lights, or conversation about good places to eat or things to see.
The Nasama staff are very helpful - particularly Elizabeth who recommended specific tour operators (not the big ones) for a more authentic island tour, and arranged airport transfers for us. Chanel also made sure we were pleasantly introduced to the room and facilities and made sure we had everything we needed. Being a new resort there was still a bit of work being done on the grounds but this is mainly tidying up and adding landscaping so shouldn't inconvenience anyone. Vanuatu itself is so handy to Sydney (except for the stupid flight times) that we will certainly return and when we do, I am sure we will be staying at Nasama.
