We spent 5days at the Reef House, Vanuatu at end of May and had a fantastic time.
It is one of those places that upon arrival you realise the the photos on the website don’t do justice to the real experience.
Such a delight.There were on the four of us (2 couples) so many of the bedrooms lay idle.
The house is spacious and extremely well equipped , It is so comfortable and the relaxed island decor blends beautifully with the direct beachfront setting.
Big comfy lounges, expansive dining tables, a library of books and dvds to choose from. The Wifi is excellent.
There are plenty of areas to find that perfect spot to relax and read or suntan (or both)!
There is the hammock , outdoor bath (big enough for 2), sun lounges, grassy lawn or beach to choose from.
The outdoor barbecue is a dream and perfect for cooking local beef or seafood (or fish was caught whilst out fishing).
The beachside fireplace made a fantastic bonfire on our last night of celebrations! The evening sunsets are glorious.
Go there and visit the nearby stunning white sandy beach of Eton and famous Blue lagoon swimming hole.
There are fabulous restaurants nearby including Tamanu sands and Eratap Resorts -fantastic fresh modern cuisine using local produce.
Close to Port Vila yet far enough away to be secluded, tranquil, relaxing. The only sounds were heard apart from our own voices, were birds and the waves. Spacious property with all conveniences. Nice swimming pool and if the tides are right you can venture into the bay for swimming and snorkling. We self catered buying supplies at Bon Marche supermarket in Port Vila but you could eat at nearby restaurants. The staff supplied lots of fresh fruit - pawpaw, bananas, grapefruit, limes for our use. Pantry was well stocked with staples but we took meat, vegetables and copious amounts of wine for our stay. Go to the markets for lots of the freshest vegetables and salad requirements - beware some things are very expensive eg Lettuce $12 !! The house came with books, dvds, tv and games. The staff kept everywhere clean and tidy for us yet remained in the background. The outdoor bath was a bonus - lots of hot water and we added bath salts and fresh flowers - very decadent ! Came home feeling very very relaxed.
Our first stay at the Reef House was everything we expected it too be and more ! The location , views , accomodation and grounds were spectacular. Our stay here was very enjoyable with our two children . Asnet and Wendy looked after us very well and made sure we had everything we needed . The building perfectly compliments its surroundings with its huge shutter doors opening up to the sea . We will never forget our stay here . 5 Star .
The Reef House is quite simply the best Villa in Vanuatu! It's a pleasure to stay here amidst the amazing architecture, surrounded by stunning views and tranquil setting. The house is immaculate and your every need is catered to. If you're looking for a wonderful luxurious escape from reality this place has it all including some special touches such as the fabulous outdoor bath and fire pit by the sea. Plenty of space to relax and chill out and share this special place with friends. John the manager was very helpful with seamless checkin and Stanley the gardner is lovely and on hand to help out if needed. All in all cannot recommend this place enough. Can't wait to go back some day!!
A great house to start our 1st family holiday. The property was truly beautiful and loved waking up in "paradise" and with such a great view. On our departure we felt fully relaxed. We throughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again.
The reef house is a favorite of ours. As residents of Port Vila this is a fabulous get away from the traffic of Port Vila.
This trip we took our visiting family. As first time visitors to Vanuatu they were delighted to see the beauty of the environment with a magnificent indoor/ outdoor living environment. The design of the building allowed space and quiet time to relax and enjoy family. The pool and ocean frontage provide space to play and the indoor/ outdoor showers allowed us to connect to nature.
Staff were amazing and loved the interaction of my nephew. Making my family feel at home as well as enjoy what Vanuatu is famous for. Smiles, laughter and glowing happiness.
The reef house provides everything you need for a relaxing break or holiday. you will have no regrets booking the reef house!
