“tara beach "my paradise"”
Reviewed 2 November 2008

We have returned from Vanuatu having spent 7 days there for our 21st Wedding Anniversary.

Our first night at the le meridian, 3 nights at Hideaway and 3 nights at Tara beach resort.

Tara beach was the best by far. Snorkeling and fish feeding were amazingand just off the jetty. Dolphins passed by in the morning and evening which added that special touch to breakfast, and sundowner cocktails each day. We were also able to do reef fishing and our son did spear fishing with the guys. In the evenings we were serenaded by Sela (the owner) and his son Eric. You would simply love the experience of "Elvis at Tara"!
Christina does day trips around the island for those who are interested, Lulu entertained us on the patio of our bungalow with his guitar one afternoon while it was raining. Lulu, Carl and Christina went out of their way to make sure that everything was good and we were comfortable.
Everybody was very friendly - one afternoon we decided to walk to the village shop, before we realised it, James appeared with 2 bicycles and he accompanied our son on their cycle to the village.
The meals were great, freshly prepared, probably the biggest lobster we have had!
The resort is very new and only has 3 bungalows available at the moment with 6 or 7 in progress. The bungalows are very spacious and lovely and clean. Overhead fans throughout and a lovely patio overlooking the bay.
This is the place to go if you are looking for a special getaway with that personal touch that all the other resorts lack!

Tara Beach Resort has got to be the most perfect spot to unwind. We spent 7 idyllic days in peaceful surroundings and the friendly staff could not do enough to help us. Breakfast every morning at the restaurant on the beach set us up for the day and of our 7 nights on the Island, we dined at the resort for 6 of them. Feeding the fish off the jetty was a nice touch and snorkling over the coral at the end of the jetty was excellent.

If you are looking for peace and tranquility where the staff are helpful and friendly, and the bungalows are on the beach with fantastic views then we would recommend Tara Beach Resort.

Stayed August 2008
