We booked the Beach Spa Cabin at Lagoon Beach after researching any number of resorts in Vanuatu and it didn't disappoint, it lived up to everything other people had written. Although the resort was probably more than 50% full when we visited we hardly saw a soul except for the gardening staff of which there were plenty to keep the grounds looking immaculate. The cabin itself was exactly as photographed on the resorts website and the private beach was a wonderful oasis to escape to with a book or for an afternoon snooze. The team at Lagoon Beach were all happy & helpful and in their own quiet way made the stay especially enjoyable.
The owners of the resort have recently acquired Iririki Island Resort. Which may in time be a double edged sword. On the positive side guests at Lagoon Beach have free access to Iririki and all its facilities but on the other hand we did notice the supervision staff were being switched between resorts and you were never sure who was running the resort from one day to the next. I suspect this was just part of the bedding in process at Iririki but unless it is sorted soon there could be ramifications in the future for the smooth running of Lagoon Beach.
Finally, don't be put off by any comments you read or hear about simple requests taking too long. You're on Vanuatu, you're running on Island Time, just relax and go with the flow. You weren't in a hurry to get anywhere were you?
