Tangkyu Tangkyu tumas to the wonderful owners and staff at Reflections Retreat!

It was a peaceful and reflective time for my partner and I to learn about ourselves and the community of Vanuatu away from the tourist strip. The best bang for our buck with three meals a day and personally guided activities everyday as part of the overall cost!!

We highly recommend Reflections Retreat for so many reasons, especially its sumptuous, healthy meals ( we arrrhed with delight each morsel), the robust and fun personal activities, the well trained, friendly local staff, generous sized, clean rooms, and the vision and integrity of Gillian and Brad who own and operate this retreat. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

P.s The glorious massage’s were also winners!

In February this year I really needed a break from a challenging time in my life. And did I find the perfect spot for to relax, reflect and renew! Brad and Gillian seemed to immediately know what I needed without me saying much. I did not expect this at all. I’ve never felt so well taken care of in a retreat (and I’ve been to a few!).

I’m sure Brad and Gillian have a sixth sense of what their guests need – and they totally master the art of balance. Gillian was there for me if I wanted to talk. At the same time, she knew when I just needed to be alone. And Brad intuitively knew exactly what yoga asanas I needed. Bliss!

7 days at Reflections Retreat worked wonders for me. I can really recommend this magic place for any solo traveler. Namaste!

Brad and Gillian have created a lovely retreat center right on the sea. We felt that they really cared about us and were very helpful and kind. We slept in the most comfortable king size bed in the world. The food was delicious. The ocean there is lovely to swim and snorkel in. The staff are lovely, friendly people. We highly recommend and we want to go back again some day. Thank you.

I recently hosted my first Yoga retreat at Reflections. From the very first enquiry I was met with clear, concise answers and and understanding of the support I would require.
The accommodation is stylish, squeaky clean and functional. The swimming pool, Yoga shala, dining area and beachfront are just stunning.
Then there is the food...the menu is designed by Gillian (an amazing Naturopath by the way!) in collaboration with her team of cooks and chefs. The fixed menu is a delight, offering all the seasonal foods you could dream of, plated and presented as you would find in a world class restaurant.
If you are looking for a place to 'retreat', this is it!

We had a wonderful 10 day holiday at Reflections Retreat! Having been to Vanuatu many times and being familiar with this part of the island we chose Reflections Retreat as it was in an area that is more sheltered from the trade winds and has a reef just off the beach for snorkelling and an exciting surprise was the inclusion of boat trips to the reefs around Lelepa are available if you wish. We chose to go out almost every day and enjoyed our trips in the capable hands of Captain Patrick and Ben the snorkelling guide.
Afternoons were wind down times with daily Swedish style relaxation massages...Bliss!
Rooms are luxurious spacious and the bathroom even has a deep bath and magnesium salts on hand for total relaxation. Other highlights are the first class healthy meals presented by chef Johnny and Gil. Morning yoga in the pavilion overlooking Havana Harbour is truly memorable. Brad is an excellent teacher with many years of experience. Gillian a naturopath and Brad are the owner managers and are a warm and friendly couple and have created a unique paradise

Reflections Retreat was pure bliss and contentment.

The moment Gillian picked us up and drove us to the grounds of Reflections we were sure that our holiday would be one of the most memorable ones.

Accomodation:
Reflections is a boutique get away that only has 4 Room at any one time.
Exclusivity is guaranteed.
The rooms were spacious, tastefully done with high quality timber flooring.
The water view was magnificent and the sounds of the waves lapping are ever present around the property.
The grounds were beautiful and the pool was divine.

Food:
The food was one of the best we ever had. We had beef, fish and chicken during our stay.
Reflections has its own chef conjuring tasty meals to suit anyone's dietary needs.
We really looked forward to our meal times. It was just like having your own private chef.

Activities:
Activities at Reflections were abundant, you can do whatever you like, there is absolutely no pressure. Massages, yoga, boat trip, guided snorkeling trip and kayak trips are available.

We spent our nights sitting by the beach, watching the fire and exchanging stories.

Both Gillian and Brad were lovely hosts and as a person who never goes back to the same place twice, I would return to Reflections in a heartbeat. It will always have a special place in my heart.

We just spent the most relaxing week of our lives at Reflections Retreat in Havannah Harbour Vanuatu. Gillian and Brad are amazing hosts, the rooms, the food, the staff, everything is wonderful. If you are looking to relax, reset and renew then this is the place for you. Nothing is too much trouble, and everyone is so friendly and accommodating. With amazing healthy food and daily massage included in the package and snorkelling, fishing, swimming, yoga and kayaking just to name a few of the many activities available at this amazing place, you really can't go wrong. Do as little or as much as you like, the choice is yours, so do yourself a favour and book your retreat today.

It is in a beautiful location, very quiet and the amenities are lovely and modern. We ate our meals there and the food was wonderful. They specialize in natural, healthy ingredients and in many cases the recipes were their own creations. Just try Gillian's protein bread/toast! Everything was delicious.

But what really set this place apart was the people. The staff was all delightful, friendly and competent. But the owners, Brad and Gillian, are a cut above. From picking us up at the airport, to recommending places to eat, shop and exchange money, to hiring excellent and reliable drivers for us...they were superb. I've almost never seen anyone as invested in customer service. They really wanted us to enjoy our stay and paid attention to the smallest details; even down to mundane things such as remembering how many cups of coffee we liked in the morning and how we liked it prepared. Brad took us to the airport for our departure and stayed with us until he was sure everything was good to go. And they did all this while being friendly and providing very cordial, intelligent and enjoyable conversation in just the right amounts. It really was one of the best places I've stayed, and I'm 60 years old and have travelled quite a bit. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
