Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had the most wonderful stay at Nakatumble, absolutely beautiful design and architecture, so peaceful and private, surrounded by lush gardens and the sea. Romina, Bill and the whole staff went above and beyond and made us feel right at home. Not to mention their loving cats and dogs who looked after us the whole time as well! The reef is just incredible, one of the most beautiful and untouched that you can find. The meals were fresh and delicious everyday. Incredible massages. Look no further, Nakatumble is simply perfect. Thank you!

A special place that is hard to give justice to in words. Nakatumble is in an amazing location with beautifully appointed rooms and living areas, but what really takes it a world apart from anywhere else are the people. Romina, Bill and the team create such a personal experience that we really felt like part of their extended Nakatumble family. This is not just another island resort stay - it is no exaggeration to say you feel like it is a home away from home. We visited with three generations (grandparents, children, and grandchildren) and we couldn’t recommend Nakatumble enough. Thank you Romina, Bill and everyone of the amazing team!

Following an incredibly disappointing experience at one of the island's most expensive, 'top' luxury resorts, Nakatumble hosts Romina and Bill rescued us with open arms. Our stay was nothing short of fantastic: delicious, farm-to-table cuisine tailored to our dietary needs, immersive snorkeling tours of nearby coral reefs, and clean, modern villas and intimate communal spaces & MUCH MORE. In short, Nakatumble has everything needed for a top-notch holiday: kind & attentive staff, incredible & locally-sourced dining options, and warm & modern accommodation. At the end of stay, I attempted to pay MORE than what was charged, simply due to just how good the experience was. PRO TIP: Nakatumble does property buy-outs if made in advance. Perfect if you want to bring the whole family.

Paradise. My family of two adults and two kids spent the most incredible week at Nakatumble, arriving Christmas Day. From the initial booking process, Romina was fantastic answering all of my questions on WhatsApp (not matter how many or how small they were). She was also super helpful with recommendations for our visit. Nakatumble is set out away from town, meaning you are staying in a sanctuary that feels so peaceful and safe. The kids loved roaming the property and gardens - particularly when it was during one of Bill’s afternoon walks with the dogs. The lunch and dinners that Romina and the girls created were always delicious and fresh. Dessert every night was such a treat too! Being able to take a thoughtfully packed lunch for our trips was also incredibly helpful. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. They are made up daily, with a full washing service included. This was so helpful on a family holiday! The outlook to the ocean is unbeatable and the coral reef to match. I have never seen so much beauty and natural wonders. It was one of the best experiences of my life snorkelling just outside the resort. Thank you to Bill for taking us out to show us the ropes. We all had the best time at Nakatumble. It was so nice to meet another family staying at the same time. The communal dinner table - feast style, led to many treasured memories. The kids had a ball playing together in the pool too! I need to mention Joyce’s amazingggg massages. Absolute dream! We will be back 😁

When Mariah Carey sang “All I want for Christmas…” she’d clearly not heard of this Resort in Vanuatu, because all I’ll ever want for Christmas is this AMAZING location in Mele, Efate - Vanuatu! It’s THE MOST beautiful, tropical, well-planned, heavenly located, sustainable, remote, farm-to-plate-delicious, family-friendly luxury resort ON THE PLANET! And, in 20 years of #mumlife, I have NEVER had a holiday (yes, an actual holiday!) quite like this! The hosts (Romina & Bill) and their beautiful, hardworking staff create ALL the meals with freshly caught/locally sourced, organic produce, do ALL the washing - daily (yes I cried about this aspect when we left!) and ALL of the everything, ALL of the time - without missing a beat! The non-stop, next-level hosts took the 5 of us snorkeling, stand up paddle-boarding, kayaking, exploring, walking, farming touring and fruit picking! Romina booked our tours with locally-owned businesses and ensured we didn’t miss a thing across all of the 83 islands that make up Vanuatu. If you’ve ever wanted to get to the end of your holiday feeling like you’ve actually had a H-O-L-I-D-A-Y, then pop this slice of HEAVEN on your ‘top 100 things to do before you die’! It’s heaven on a reef and we never wanted to leave! 🪸🐠 🤿

What an incredible experience! To be invited along to celebrate 50 years of a great mate is one thing… but Romina, Bill and team took it to the next level. Our stay at Nakatumble was one to remember. Pure luxury. Such a stunning property that has been created from the ground up by Rom and Bill. An abundance of love and passion is evident in everything they’ve created, from the beautifully comfortable accommodation, picturesque garden settings that sprawl down to the waters edge, eco-friendly and sustainable practices to the incredible catering that lovingly accommodated dietary requirements and was thoughtfully created based on favourite meals. Rom even continued to share the love beyond our stay, arranging a beautiful dinner at a local restaurant and even went to the trouble to send along a birthday gift. One I’ll treasure forever. Everything was above and beyond expectations. So grateful for the experience. May we be lucky enough to return one day.
