We stayed one night and it was beautiful. If you are already in Malekula you know it is a place for the "off the beaten track" traveler. Nawori was basic accommodation, but it was clean, comfortable and safe, and the hosts Ettienne and Lyn are welcoming and can't do enough for you. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was shared with cold running water - but it was refreshing (vanuatu is a tropical place). The food was delicious and plentiful. The best thing however is teh view from the front sitting area, looking over Wala and Rano islands at sunset with a Tusker - it was great! Talking with Ettiennes elderly father was also a treat as he told us of his recollections of the Americans in World War 2 in the area (speaking in French).We would definitely go back. Be prepared for a few jungle and seashore creatures (crabs) during the night - so keep food stashed away in your luggage , and you shouldn't have any problems.

Etienne and lyne are exceptional hosts for whom nothing is too much. Lynne's cooking is beautiful; big home style meals. Etienne goes out of his way to ensure you see what you want and you get there on time. Within the first hour of being there lyne had organized a boat to take us to wala island to snorkel.
Room was spacious with a lovely window out to the sea. It was very clean and the bathroom area had lovely home touches. The gardens are immaculate and come complete with 4 ginger kittens. Their family is extremely welcoming and will sit and have a chat with you.
Malekula is the real Vanuatu. It is quiet and you can find your own 'private' beach or reef without having to pay to be at a large international resort. Small nambas were excellent and the cannibal site very informative.

Room tip: Ask for the double room looking out to sea.

We spent one night in this horrible place (one too many). There is no privacy, place is dirty, no running water in shared bathroom, uneatable food, and luck of any services.Everything is falling apart. We simply couldn't wait to run away.

Room tip: Avoid this place. This place has no good rooms.

For those who are adventure travelers off the beaten path.....this is the place your looking for. Rustic accommodations with the best accommodations offered on island. Our host Etienne and Lynn were very helpful and accommodating. The views of the bugalow breath taking. A word of caution....trucks are the only mode of transport and must be willing to hop in the back of the truck.
Over all experience.....Awesome!

As a solo traveler I stayed at Nawori for two nights. Nawori has a beautiful setting on a low cliff next to the sea, just opposite of Wala Island. The owner Etienne runs a tight ship together with his friendly wife. The rooms are basic but clean. The generator is run every day from 6pm to 9pm, providing light and an opportunity to charge batteries. Meals were basic but nice, and very fairly priced at 400 Vatu. The Small Nambas performance nearby was very nicely done, and so much better than the Big Nambas at Mae which in hindsight I wish I had skipped. If you are there on a Sunday I recommend visiting church (also if you usually don’t go) to see the community gather in their colorful dresses and listen to the beautiful singing. It’s located a 10-minute walk away on a hill with great views over the sea and the small islands offshore. It’s worth going up there for the views even if there’s no church service. There’s a fascinating cannibal site a 45 minute walk away in the bush which is well worth visiting. Etienne at the bungalow or Veronique (Small Nambas Group) can help arranging this. I also visited Wala Island which has a nice beach and a friendly village, but otherwise not much interesting to see. Ask Etienne to take you to the Kava bar at night to have a few cups and kick back with the boys. All in all I had a lovely stay at Nawori. Recommended!
