“Great spot, friendly owner, hot spa”
Reviewed July 7, 2008

We stayed here (Parents and 2 kids) for 2 days in July 08. It’s located about 70 kms from Port Vila and about the opposite side of Efate Island. It has 3 very nice mineral swimming pools, heated by underground volcanic activity (either very hot, hot or warm) in a very good position overlooking a nice coral reef which is ideal for reef walking at low tide.
Although quite basic, we found this to be a terrific place to stay with a laid back style, a very friendly owner and helpful staff. We were made to feel at home the minute we arrived!
The accommodation was simple but adequate with just a basic room and ensuite bathroom. There’s a restaurant and bar onsite and surprisingly, the food was excellent with freshly caught fish and seafood available. Nothing was too much trouble (hard to find in Vanuatu) for the staff or owners.
The kids had a great time and the owner arranged for us to visit Emau Island just across the water which is an idyllic tropical paradise with a beautiful lagoon, villages and absolutely magnificent scenery.
We would highly recommend this place for a couple or a few lazy days.
