Getting away from it all in Vanuatu can be a little difficult when there are thousands of other tourists trying to do the same thing. Fortunately, Poppy's is a little further out from the action, allowing you to really escape from it all. Though it is a little further out, all that Port Vila has to offer is accessible by...

Large hotel room that was very relaxed with nice views. The buffet breakfast was delicious with a few different options to choose from and was easy to organise tours with the front desk. Close to Port Vila shops and markets
