Fantastic place. Kenneth is a gem and will proudly show you around his island and village way of life. Snorkeling is great and beaches down the track are incredible. Well worth the effort to get there.

CONTINUED from below: solar power. Kerosene lamp provided. Sand floor dining area was very useful. Washing line was handy. 2 small rooms to the side of the bungalow was for toilet and shower. Toilet used bore water from a bucket as the flush system. Shower was rainwater in a bowl. TAKE torch or head lamps. We had mosquito coils, but donít think they were necessary. Bottled water was advised. Breakfast & coffee was included in the hire price. We paid in advance in NZ, 10,500 per night for the 4 of us. Meals beautifully presented and filling.We were advised that we could buy the meals for 500 vatu for adults and 250 vatu for children, however the portions for the children were as large as the adults, so paid accordingly. Staying at Napanga forced us to really chill out and do nothing. Yes you can walk around the island in 2 hours if you want, or just wander to the point, but it was just as nice to sit under the trees looking at the world go by and watch the locals men go out fishing

Having visited Vanuatu in 2010, and stayed at one ni-Van bungalow, we wanted to enjoy the same experience in 2011. We have made a conscious decision to inject as much of our meager holiday spend into the Ni-Van population. Our travel agent was recommended via Everygreen Tours, this relatively newish bungalow. (on arrival they said they had 11 visitors over 12 months, so assume it's new, but doesn't add up with what is written below in other reviews - maybe a newer bungalow). It is on the island of Pele Ė on the north east coast in Undine Bay. Catch a long boat from Emua Wharf (about 20 mins or so). We had all these transfers pre-arranged via Evergreen. The owner of the Bungalow, Ennoch and partner, Joans were very helpful, pleasant, friendly and obliging. The bungalow was small but enough room for our 4 large suitcases and day bags. Like many bungalows, there is no electricity. Ennoch very kindly arranged for a re-charge of camera battery with one of the villagers who had solar

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here and we thought it was amazing! You can catch a lift with a transport truck that leaves Port Vila from outside of the Hua Chinese store (about 500m down the road from the police station) about 11:30-12:30 each day, it will cost 500VT per person to be taken to Emua Wharf, here the truck connects with boats going to both Pele and Nguna Island (also 500VT per person for the boat). We were taken to Pele where Kenneth Talang (assistant chief of the village) met us on the beach. We had called to book a few weeks earlier and then confirmed the day before so he could arrange to meet us, his current mobile is: (678) 5630315. He was a lovely man and showed us to our little bungalow that was right on the beach! We had a room with a two single beds and a double bed and it was so cute! There was a toilet which was pretty clean and a fresh water shower (the water is Vanuatu isn't even very cold so it was fine to take a shower here!).

Just returned from an enjoyable 3 night stay at Napanga. Note that the best contact number for Kenneth Talang is now mobile 5630315 (the other 2 numbers are no longer in use). Kenneth's son Sam collected us from Emua wharf (the boat ride cost 3,000 vatu return for 2 people). There are two bungalows. The one we stayed in had one double and two single beds. The food at Napanga is very tasty. Kenneth is the Assistant Chief at his village and was happy to show us around or have us dine with his family if we chose. Visitors are also welcome to join the locals for kava. The snorkeling was great. There is a nearby marine reserve and turtle hunting is taboo on the island. We saw 5 turtles alone during the boat trip home. We took a walk around the coastline of Pele island one day. You can also take a walk up the hill for 500 vatu (a couple of older children will be arranged to act as guides).

We stayed at Napunga for a week in July 2010. Fantastic place, great food, plenty to do, plus great place to relax. Kenneth and Lasong are wonderful and welcoming hosts. Highlights include snorkelling in the Natasariki passage, and walking to the top of the island. Will be returning there in 2011.

We have just had 3 nights on Pele staying at Napanga Bungalows (March 2011) Talang Kenneth is very welcoming and the meals are huge and tasty. The accommodation is cute, there is a cold shower, bucket flush toilet.
We spent one day walking round the island, (head off in an anti clockwise direction at low tide). Laoamoa has volcanic rocks and waves and the other side of the island has sandy beaches and snorkelling. If snorkelling at Piliura check with George first as they often have day trippers (none when we were there).
Our Pele stay was our favourite part of our trip to Vanuatu would throughly recommend it.
