Galavanting Goddess Experience

Attraction details
Owner description: Definitely not for minor Princesses – this is an afternoon soiree for the Goddess.Designer fashion parade, and trend forecasts direct from Paris with fashion designer JoJo Vanuatu, the forecasts come from Paris but the garments are for real women.The heavenly foot and shoulder massage from the massage maestro will have you ready to imbibe in the sumptuous cocktails, while the high priestess of the high tea whips about with a never ending supply of freshly baked scones, cute little cucumber sandwiches, tropical fruits or whatever she fancies on the day.Float about on the coral reef, jump on a kayak, or if you are a bubbly sort you might prefer the freshly filled chemical free hot tub with your glass of champagne as Bert the Butler does his rounds with the fragrant face cloths.If you have had enough of the red carpet, take a stroll through the tropical garden or chill out on a lounger with your feet in the water as the tide goes out.Its barefoot glamorous and decadent – but not stiletto stuffy. Get the girls together and be a Galavanting Goddess.

Met at our resort by a man in a luxurious white tuxedo and top hat, but not forgetting where we are...no shoes and a sarong! Served champagne while taking in the breath taking view of the coral reef in a stunning private tropical setting. We were treated to JOJO VANUATU's unique fashion show AND then a man with the most amazing biceps offered head, shoulder and feet massage....all whilst sipping on freshly made cocktails! I was giddy with the delight!! We were served a high tea .... and more champagne while we girls got down to business trying on and ohh ahhh-ing over Jo Jo's collection. As the afternoon kicked on, we kicked up our heels dancing and swimming. Sometimes at the same time! Treated like a Goddess for a day and put it all down to EXPERIENCE!

There is only one place in my opinion that is a must see and do in Vanuatu and that is Jo Jo's Galavanting Goddess Experience. From the time you are picked up at your resort by Bert and then taken to Jo Jo's breath taking home the experience is unforgettable. Champagne, high tea, fashion parade beyond compare, shoulder and foot massage, a quick dip or a relaxing spa, its all your choice. Jo Jo's clothes are amazing........the only problem is deciding on what to purchase as there are too many stunning garments to pick from. Ladies you might want to get an increase on your credit cards before going on your trip because once you try these clothes on you won't want to leave without them. I can't wait to return next year..... we love you Jo Jo.......Goddess Narelle - Sydney

What an awesome afternoon we just had. Our heartiest thanks to JoJo, Rob and the awesome staff members who made us feel so very special for our 3 hours of pampering, indulgence and downright jolly great fun. You have to check out JoJo's range of couture - as diverse a clothing range as you could desire and prices to suit all budgets. The fashion show was spectacular, the models simply stunning, the clothes to die for and the massage from Kalmen was truly Oh La La! We walked in as average Jane's and came out as Sparkling Goddesses!
DON'T MISS THIS :-)

On a cold winters day Ive been looking at my vanuatu photos from May when I was there for a friends wedding and its prompted me to do my first ever review. ( yep, im one of the lazy ones who reads other peoples reviews but never bothers to do one, sorry)

The goddess experience is held at paradise cove in vanuatu and it is paradise!!!

Even in winter I can snuggle up with my beautiful Jojo vanuatu hand dyed silk pareo
( Jojo calls them pareos rather than sarongs) as a scarf and relive how it felt to be the goddess for the day !

The colours of my pareo were inspired by the paradise cove coral reef , how special to have something like this inspired by the actual water I snorkeled in, rather than touristy junk that has no meaning.

We had a great day and we all really really really want to go back again, it was perfect.
In the meantime I cant wait for the jo jo vanuatu online store to open so I can get my fashion fix..... please please Jojo

A group of us went to the Galavanting Goddess in May before my friends wedding. This was loads of fun, with fashion and being a GODDESS. We loved the fashion parade and fashion tips, the afternoon tea was awesome, and the snorkelling is great.
The whole afternoon was just perfect, it is such a different experience to the usual types of tours that its hard to explain it really is unique. We were 'Goddesses' for the afternoon and the Jo Jo crew really go out of their way to make it special for you. Trust me, just go, you wil be glad you did.
