Tranquil and serene, absolute getaway from bustling Port Vila. We stayed in a beach bungalow with a view towards the gorgeous natural, tidal pool. Bungalow with en-suite bathroom is spacious, simply furnished and very clean. There were coffee and tea making facilities in the room and a small fridge. Breakfast was provided daily with lovely fruit salad - option of omelette at extra charge. We hired a car for our stay (Hertz delivered the car to the resort) and spent our days exploring Efate - great recommendations from Damien our host who knows the island well. Recommend this small and intimate resort for couples or small groups.

Thanks to Damien and Sally for a great stay at Ripples. The room was basic but large and very clean and had sea views and the food was fantastic, loved the fish curry! It's about 25 mins drive away from the town which has it's pros and cons. The natural swimming pool is stunning. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone curry lovers! Thanks again

We just spent 5 days at this gorgeous place and totally fell in love with it. The lagoon and bay are so very beautiful - we went kayaking in water the colour of liquid sapphire and saw coral of every different colour. Quite stunning. Sally and Damien are the perfect hosts who couldn’t do enough for us. The food is exceptionally good. We were totally relaxed and spent our days lounging on the jetty and cooling off in the lagoon. By the end of the 5 days we were very sorry to leave - hoping to come back some day! Thoroughly recommended on every level!

Our stay at Ripples was amazing. The room is simple and clean and had amazing views of the beautiful garden and ocean. Room also had a fridge which was always stocked with cold Tuskers! Breakfast was served each morning at what time we requested and consisted of toast, yoghurts, fruit, muffins and yummy coffee, and Damiem’s famous delicious bananas with coconut! Lunch and dinner menu is awesome! Some of the best food we had In vanuatu and James will make you the best cocktails! They provide bikes, kayak, snorkel gear and reef shoes and the coral out the front was some of the best coral we had seen! We took the bikes out and went for a ride to Aquana for a massage and lunch and also down to Tamanu on the bay for lunch which is short ride away Sally & Damien also organised for a bus to take us into town at whatever time we liked as well The Owners Sally & Damien are super friendly and very helpful. James and Sunny were also really friendly and nice to talk with If we go back to Vanuatu we will visit Ripples again! Thanks for having us
