“Paradise found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Just recently returned to Vanuatu for a short stay and was looking for accommodation that was on the beach and relaxed. Found it with Ripples on the bay. Only about 20 minutes from Port VIla but well worth the drive. Bungalows are brand new, clean and have amazing views across the ocean. Rock pool swimming area to relax for a swim and the restaurant serves great food. If you need to unwind for a few days this is the place. Been to a few resorts in Vanuatu but would return to Ripples without hesitation.

Thank you, Andrew,

Thanks for our inaugural Tripadvisor review. I'm a bit behind with my management responses on the accommodation, and we've had the pleasure of your company a couple of times, now. Looking forward to next time.
