My wife and I just soaked up six most peaceful days in Vanuatu at Paradise Cove Resort. We were looking for comfort, quiet, privacy, warmth, good food, good snorkelling and friendly but not intrusive staff. We got the lot and more. The resort has just 10 bungalows and caters to a maximum of 30 guests. It is about a15-20 minute ride from Port Vila, the main town which I found unimpressive and a little third worldish but the resort itself was embedded in lush jungle foliage and fronts onto a huge bay which itself opens to the ocean. The snorkelling right in front of the resort is great and if you need a change of scenery just walk for 15 minutes to Honeymoon Bay for an alternative experience on a long sandy beach. Ask any of the staff and they'll clue you in to what is good.
The managers, Belinda and Andrew, hinted that Vanuatan beef was the great and it was. I had some of the best steak I can remember. The fish was superb too. For my vegetarian wife the choices were a little more limited but their salads were excellent and the pizza pastry had a uniqueness to it. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
