My husband and I could not have picked a better place for our honeymoon! What a fantastic experience we had! Not only were the Mangoes staff extremely friendly, but the food was the best we had on the island. We had massages everyday directly in our room, which could not have been more relaxing. The girls are trained at the same place as those from the larger spas, and for ~US$20 for an hour massage - it could not have been nicer (did I mention they come directly to your room!?!?). Not only does each bungalow have its own pool, but there are various larger pools around the property to relax in. The staff puts fresh flowers in your room, on your bedside tables, in your bathroom, around the pools and in the restaurant EVERY day, which is such a lovely touch and just another example of the many small details that they do just right.
Mangoes is also conveniently located close to many other fantastic activities the island has to offer. One day, we hopped in a taxi and traveled ~10 min away to Hideaway Island to see some of the best snorkeling I've ever seen in the world, where there are little clown fish swimming in and out of bright anemones ~2 meters off the shore!! All taxis are ~US$5 around town, which couldn't be more convenient/affordable. Another thing that I found fantastic about Vanuatu (in general - not specific to Mangoes) was that not one person ever asked us for money. Apparently this is very rude culturally, so even if a person is trying to sell you something at their market stall, they will not say a word to you - they will just wait for you to ask a question and then politely reply.
We couldn't have had a more lovely honeymoon in Vanuatu, more specifically at Mangoes!! We were so glad to have had it recommended by a friend, and when returning to Vanuatu, which we will definitely do, we will be back at Mangoes!!!
