One of my New Year's resolutions is to return to the Malowia Guest House in 2015 after a lovely weekend there last year. With its peaceful village setting, clean airy accommodation, and the wonderful hospitality offered by Janet and Willie, it is the perfect place for a weekend getaway from Port Vila. Iím keen to see if the turtles will pass by and love the changing views of the off-shore islands. Jill

We had a wonderful stay at Malowia Guesthouse. Easy to get there, magical location close to the beach, great food and hospitality; lovely clean, brand-new accommodation. Perfectly situated at the top of Efate for a weekend away from Port Vila. We'll be back. Keith (stayed 6 & 7 Sept 2014)
