We stayed at Tanna Lodge for 2 nights and we enjoyed the friendly service provided by Stella and her family from the start to the end of our stay. We were picked up by their friendly driver/local guide, Sam at the airport, who also introduced us to the island on the way while stopping at certain spots upon our request to take photos and buy things from the off-road markets!
The resort itself is situated on a stretch of black sand beach and our room was pretty much waterfront (which meant dozing off to the sound of waves at night). The only downside with our room was that the bungalow style hut was prone to mosquitoes and other insects which prevented us from having a good night sleep. However, the food was surprisingly tasty and there were no specific times for breakfast. We slept in till 10:30 in the morning and still had breakfast brought out to our table when we sat down!
Our tour to the volcano was also considerately thought out by the staff despite the rainy weather. We still managed to see the volcano, but we were not able to stay to watch the fireworks, which was a bit disappointing. But we considered ourselves lucky given that some visitors left without seeing the volcano because of the wet weather.
Overall it was definitely an enjoyable stay and we would stay again if we were to visit Tanna again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On the Island of Tanna, only 35 minutes flying time from Port Vila and a little over one hour flying time from Noumea. Within close proximity to the main town and only 20 minutes drive from the airport. We are established in a very private sheltered bay amongst extensive gardens and lush tropical foliage, on 4 hectares of interestingly contoured land. The site is unique in its topography, including to the rear heavily vegetated cliffs with large scale caves and tunnels, inaccessible other than from the resort. The resort is nestled in a sheltered private bay and fronts directly onto a large area of sand beach enveloped on both sides by interesting rock formations and coral reefs. ... more less
