Location

Value
Staying in the village is an amazing experience. The bungalow is basic but adequate. However, staying there provides you with a unique opportunity to experience life in a Vanuatu village. The locals are extremely welcoming and happy to sit and chat or demonstrate cooking, weaving, thatch making or any other activities. We took our two kids who are 7 and 9 and they had a ball hanging out with the village kids and completing chores like collecting water and feeding the pigs. They also learnt some new games and passed on a few of their own. Overall, and amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone.
