“AMAZING!!!!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

villa heimana is paradise in Vanuatu, It is simply beautiful with its gardens, well looked after villa and starfish lagoon. You can go for a kayak or snorkel whenever you like and easily whip up a meal if you don't feel like going to a restaurant or to port vila just down the road. I would recommened sunset bungalows for breakfast. theres no need for a rental car as there are hundreds of buses and taxis driving past the front gate. Monica was so knowledgable when it came to the island, We would ask her anything and she had the answer, she was friendly and made the stay that much better. her dog Mack was also very friendly and gave you that extra laugh when he would chase crabs. My family and I loved staying here and will definitely be returning.

“Amazingly peaceful and beautiful”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in January 2013

I stayed at Villa Heimana for a week earlier this year with my mum and sister and had the most wonderful holiday with the right balance of exploring and relaxing.
The accommodation was stunning, clean and beautifully furnished. 5 stars all around, including air conditioning in each of the 3 bedrooms which allowed for a comfortable sleep each night despite the humidity outside. Having a fully equipped kitchen was great to be able to whip up a meal on days we didn't want to get changed out of our swimmers and venture into town.
Our host Monica was warm and friendly and gave us great "local advice" about things to do, see and eat. She was more than willing to help us throughout our stay.
Walking out the door of our gorgeous accommodation and being able to jump straight into the lagoon was just fantastic. It was warm but refreshing and we spent hours admiring the huge star fish on the lagoon floor. Being able to use the kayaks was a great way to explore the lagoon and the paddling right past villages to experience some culture.
We spent lazy afternoons on the day bed reading and enjoying the warmth and beauty of the place. Watching the sunset across the lagoon was a highlight of each day. We loved this place and have already booked our return trip next year! Let the countdown begin!
Thank you Monica for such a pleasant stay.

“10 out of 10 Tropical Paradise”
Reviewed 1 May 2013 for a stay in January 2013

On the recommendation of a friend I travelled with my 2 daughters aged 26 and 19 for a girl’s getaway to the beautiful Villa Heimana for 7 days.

It definitely exceeded our expectations. If you are after peace and relaxation, this beautiful tropical paradise fits the bill.

I am not one to go to noisy, busy, large tourist hotels so this was just heaven.
The accommodation could not be faulted. It was well appointed, had everything we needed, roomy, air conditioned bedrooms, modern, clean and very stylishly decorated.

Every morning we sat on our balcony and admired the view of the Lagoon, and tried to figure out a scheme to move in permanently! In the evenings we watched the most amazing, spectacular sunsets, whilst we were either floating in the warm water of the lagoon, or relaxing with a cocktail on the back deck.

Snorkelling in the lagoon was fascinating, the starfish were awesome. We even kayaked all around the entire lagoon.

It is very central with a quick drive to the local supermarkets that had everything you needed, or a quick trip in to town to the fresh markets which I loved..

There was so much to do; the girls were keen to do some adventures as well as our much needed relaxing. We went on the Rainforest Waterfall walk, Quad bike riding, Zorbing, snorkelling. We were only a short drive to the most pristine beaches and deserted beaches I have ever seen. The fish were amazing.

Monica our host was fantastic, so helpful, nothing was ever a problem.

The girls and I loved it so much we are going back at Christmas, this time with our husbands and partners. It has 3 separate bedrooms and accommodates 6 adults easily.

Can’t wait to return!
