We stayed in 3 resorts on Santo and Moyyan was by far the best
When we left Moyyan for transfer to the airport, the comment I made to host Justine was “best holiday ever”!
We arrived on our anniversary day and the crew at Moyyan made it memorable.
During our stay we were made to feel like one of the family, there was no discomfort that you might experience at other resorts, instead of limitations on activities we were encouraged to indulge, no charge for use of the equipment, they even lent us their boat to go exploring the islands, without even asking !
Location is 20mins from the airport, 10 mins to the nearest blue hole and snorkelling for WW2 wrecks in the sea. Champagne beach and Lonnoc easy half day trips.
Beautiful daily continental breakfasts served by Catherine who provided silver service -like waitressing and Johnnie who looked after us in the evening, yet without being too attentive to intrude. The food was notches above the other resorts of Santo and that was a standout for 2 food lovers.
We already thought the food on Santo far surpassed the restaurants of Port Vila but when Cameron cooked our first meal of Santo Beef we knew we wouldn’t need to be going anywhere else.
I asked where they bought their produce from which The Chef simply pointed out to sea, i laughed thinking he was taking the mick, but then he informed me their seafood is delivered daily by boat and hand picked for the best quality, to say the least our last night there was Lobster and a nice bottle of white watching the sun go down.
We stayed in Bure 3 and woke up each morning to the sun rising over the glistening aqua water. This is one resort where the photos dont lie, the accommodation was superb, a huge king bed, impressive timber design and immaculate bathrooms, ipod docks in the room, torches for nite walks on the beach; pukka !
With so many other places to explore its rare I would return to the same place again .... but Moyyan will be an exception.
