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

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.

We only managed to stay one night at Reflections at the end of our holiday in Vanuatu. We wish we could have stayed longer. The luxuriously appointed en-suite rooms are super comfortable , sparkling clean and tastefully decorated. Gillian is an excellent hostess and cook and Brad her partner fulfilled his dream of building and landscaping six acres of garden and beachfront . We went snorkelling on their house reef which is pristine. We saw so many colourful fish and the coral was exceptional. We hope one day we will return . The retreat is half an hour away from Port Vila airport on Havannah beach and is an excellent choice for those looking for peace and calm and beauty away from the hustle and bustle of the town.

We loved our stay at Reflections Retreat. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. With only a few rooms available, it is a quiet oasis and feels like a refined getaway from the hustle and bustle of Port Vila. Gillian and Brad were excellent hosts and made our time there all the more enjoyable. While it is quiet, you will never be stuck for something to do. Although at home we don't normally do yoga, it was an amazing way to start the day when you are right on the water like that with such a beautiful view of Havannah Harbour. You are in goods hands with Brad as he has been teaching yoga for many years and his experience shows. After yoga we'd have breakfast, then depending on what you like you can go for guided snorkelling tours, go kayaking, go on a boat trip or just relax and have a massage. There isn't any schedule for these activities and you can do as many or as little as you like. Reflections is a great place to relax so we also enjoyed just reading on the day bed outside our room or by the pool. At night we would sit round the fire and talk with the other guests, if you let your eyes adjust to the darkness for a few minutes you get a great view of the Milky Way. The food at reflections is really great and it felt good to eat healthily. As we were all inclusive we had 3 meals a day and were perfectly content, despite being quite active. We arrived just before lunch and ate some great barracuda with a light ginger sauce that another guest had caught the day before on a boat trip. They can cater for vegan, vegetarian, gluten free etc as well as people like us that eat everything. When Gillian found out I hadn't tried poulet fish yet and this was our last stop in Vanuatu she had some cooked especially for me even though she had a different menu planned, which was really nice of her. The accommodation itself is top class, all the timber used is very high quality and you can really tell that this place was built to be luxurious. The bedroom is extremely spacious and the bathroom is beautifully designed. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. We wish we had more time to spend at Reflections and we wouldn't hesitate to go back, next time we will stay for longer.

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.

The food is fantastic, both tasty as well as super clean and healthy. The yoga is amazing, with a deck right on the waterfront, you can't help but feel relaxed and in the moment. The swimming and snorkelling is brilliant, some of the best in Vanuatu. Spectacular place to go for a few days. We will be back!
