The negatives: As the rest of the island, the road to the Lodge is bad, so not a good first impression. No hot water in our lodge, hot water system was out of order. No blanket , it was freezing the first night. If you are after luxury, this place is not it. We wanted to go to White Grass,... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Tanna Lodge. The owner, Hugh, creates a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are large with verandahs over looking the see and surrounded by beautiful gardens. Its certainly not "up market" but I would always chose a place like this.

Over the 3 or so years I have been coming to Tanna I have stayed at Tanna Lodge because of its relaxed ambience, friendly and helpful owner (Hugh) and his staff, spectacular ocean views, comfortable Villas and as it is the best value-for-money accommodation on Tanna. I love knowing that the quality of my experience isn't going to change. Keep... More

Views are amazing and great to walk out onto the pebble beach. Isolated area. The pool was green and unusable. The rooms are basic but no privacy if sharing a hut. Power is run by generator so no in-room fridge. Sheets on my bed had blood splatter stains. Food was superb! You may have to wait a while but the... More

Stayed 2 nights at lodge. Manager organised trip to volcano and other special places we wanted to visit. It takes 1 hour and 30 minutes to drive to volcano be prepared for a rough trip. But well worth it! Climbing the volcano is a lifetime experience. Manager and staff at lodge very hospitable and friendly.

Very friendly atmosphere. Hugh the owner was extremely hospitable, he organised our trip to volcano, thinking of everything. Accommodation is close to beach. The waves serenade you to sleep at night. This was a nostalgic trip back to Tanna for me, I was a VSA volunteer about 30 years ago. On the way to volcano the driver made sure I... More

Spent a couple of nights at Tanna Lodge and what a great experience. First impressions were a bit ordinary but the friendliness and hospitality of Hugh and his staff was unbelievable. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable and the view over the ocean from our verandah was splendid. Hugh organised a volcano trip for us without hesitation, even though we... More

Really, we cant imagine a better place on Tanna. We had a wonderful time there. Hugh, the owner, is a great guy and generous to a fault. Staff was wonderful too and the food was better than we had in Port Vila. The atmosphere was one of the best we ever had on our travels. Fantastic! We stayed for 8... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the Island of Tanna, only 35 minutes flying time from Port Vila and a little over one hour flying time from Noumea. Within close proximity to the main town and only 20 minutes drive from the airport. We are established in a very private sheltered bay amongst extensive gardens and lush tropical foliage, on 4 hectares of interestingly contoured land. The site is unique in its topography, including to the rear heavily vegetated cliffs with large scale caves and tunnels, inaccessible other than from the resort. The resort is nestled in a sheltered private bay and fronts directly onto a large area of sand beach enveloped on both sides by interesting rock formations and coral reefs. ... more   less
