Nasama’s distance from the centre of Vila should be no deterrent: local buses drive along Pango Road regularly and frequently. Being four kilometres from the traffic chaos and tourist-shops probably contributes to its peace, comforts and the feeling that you are surrounded by the real Vanuatu.
The resort’s rooms are spacious, comfortable, tastefully decorated and appointed, and clean. We were provided with milk, biscuits, tea and Tanna coffee, … and further provisions can be found in the Reception/Store.
From our room and our balcony, we looked out at an infinity pool, and gardens with Melanesian shrubs and gaudily-coloured flowers. And beyond, the lagoon, Erakor Island and beyond: during our four days’ stay, the mood of the lagoon varied drom greens, turquoises and perfect calm to gunmetal skies, grey waters, waves and rough breakers.
While we could relax in the resort’s pool, swimming in the natural coral pool adjoining Nasama’s beach was much more enjoyable.
The manager, Paul, is very knowledgable: about Vanuatu, … and beyond. And the people working at the resort are, without exception, lovely, friendly and so obliging.
Would we return? Doubtlessly!
