Yandina Resort

Does anyone have info on travel to and accom on MBanika Island in the Russell Islands? The website for Yandina Resort is still accessable but there has been unrest in this area and I can't find out if it is still operating. No reply from them to emails. Are there any church or Govt guesthouses?

The Russell Islands Plantations are still in turmoil, and the resort has not been operating for a few years now.

It is a great pity, as I think the Russells are one of the prettiest places in the country.

However, when I went there (more than 10 years ago) I stayed with plantation workers in their substandard accommodation, and I can understand exactly why they object to the company management.

Thanks for the info, I was afraid this was the situation. I lived on this island for many years and would love to visit but the situation is so different now. Such a shame as the local people are the ones who suffer.
