I recently had the opportunity to stay at Tanna Lodge. The room I had was quite large and was clean and comfortable. The staff and the owner make you feel most welcome and are always helpful. Located on a small bay, with excellent sunsets, the combination of good food and cold beer made my stay very enjoyable.

We have spent some months on Tanna, rebuilding churches and schools (now safe houses for future cyclones). During this time, we stayed in tents mostly, in the villages. In one village, we were told we were the first white people to set foot in their village! Many villages have no running water. Their toilets are holes in the ground, and...

We were hoping for a lodge as it was rated star wise and this was not the case in so many ways. We were very disappointed with this Lodge and can only imagine that in its day it must have been worth a stay, but certainly not as it is now and with poor attitude of the owner and some...

We unexpectedly ended up at Tanna Lodge after a mix-up with a booking elsewhere. Hugh (the owner) was expecting us for lunch, however not for the night. It was no problem to get a room ready for us, and arrange some lunch and dinner too. Our kids had a great time in the small bay just down from the lodge,...

Don’t visit Tanna Island with the expectation of luxury resorts and restaurants otherwise you will be disappointed. Tanna is mostly undeveloped with the majority of people still living the village life and living off the land. All of the roads on Tanna are dirt and sometimes very rough however the main road that runs along the east coast is currently...

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,...

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...

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
