We were looking to take our 5 children who are between 6 and 12 on a cultural experience. On my check list for accommodation I needed a pool to keep the kids amused and cool and cooking facilities so we could self cater, Worawia had both, Air conditioning would of been nice but you can't have everything when your on a budget. The pool ended up being mediocre due to the rain and heat the chlorine doesn't last long but it saved the kids from over heating in between walking the 4 minutes to the clear pristine beach to play on the water toys outside the Beach Bar and a 2 minute boat trip to Hideaway island which had the most amazing snorkeling and was the perfect snorkeling conditions for our aged children. We talked to the locals who got us some great deals on local entertainment and an authentic cultural show. This accommodation is set on the out skirts of the one of the largest Villages in Port Vila and walking in the Village was lovely. The kids could buy sweets and the local kids gave us flowers and seemed as intrigued with us as we were with them. We had a great stay at Worawia the staff were very helpful, honest and cleaned our room everyday. No small task when there are 5 kids! If you are looking for a 5 star luxury holiday this isn't the place for you but for an authentic Vanuatu holiday on the cheap this place is fantastic. It can get a bit rowdy at night time from the local parties probably depending on the time of year you travel but their music is lovely and we never had any trouble. The traveling to Port Vila can be expensive if you go in everyday but you can buy fresh fruit, vege, chicken and anything else from the local village. You need to have VATU.
