We were looking to take our 5 children who are between 6 and 12 on a cultural experience. On my check list for accommodation I needed a pool to keep the kids amused and cool and cooking facilities so we could self cater, Worawia had both, Air conditioning would of been nice but you can't have everything when your on a budget. The pool ended up being mediocre due to the rain and heat the chlorine doesn't last long but it saved the kids from over heating in between walking the 4 minutes to the clear pristine beach to play on the water toys outside the Beach Bar and a 2 minute boat trip to Hideaway island which had the most amazing snorkeling and was the perfect snorkeling conditions for our aged children. We talked to the locals who got us some great deals on local entertainment and an authentic cultural show. This accommodation is set on the out skirts of the one of the largest Villages in Port Vila and walking in the Village was lovely. The kids could buy sweets and the local kids gave us flowers and seemed as intrigued with us as we were with them. We had a great stay at Worawia the staff were very helpful, honest and cleaned our room everyday. No small task when there are 5 kids! If you are looking for a 5 star luxury holiday this isn't the place for you but for an authentic Vanuatu holiday on the cheap this place is fantastic. It can get a bit rowdy at night time from the local parties probably depending on the time of year you travel but their music is lovely and we never had any trouble. The traveling to Port Vila can be expensive if you go in everyday but you can buy fresh fruit, vege, chicken and anything else from the local village. You need to have VATU.

Stayed a couple of nights at Worawia. Handy to Cascades, Mele village, Horse riding. Sadly a bit close to the village and the resident guard dog earned her keep one night scaring away drunken locals. Lovely staff who are happy to help. Fully self contained if you wish to cook. Order meals in advance - they are made in town and brought out to you. Good food at a good price. Was pleasantly surprised to find breakfast (simple continental) and transfers included.

Worawia is a clean, modest establishment with kitchen facilities, a swimming pool and beautiful garden. It does pretty well, given the challenges of the environment. A short ride from downtown Vila - 160 vatu in a public bus, which are plentiful - and a short walk to Mele Village, good swimming beaches, Hideaway Island (great snorkelling, free ferry and pretty good food) and a beach bar/restaurant with internet. Half an hour away are the Mele Cascades - not to be missed - and the Secret Garden, which gives great insights into Vanuatu's culture and history. Staff are very friendly and airport transfers seamless. The breakfast includes a bountiful variety of fresh fruit, some from the garden.

We were lucky enough to spend a week at Worowia mid December - what a gem. This property has three fully self contained bungalows in a garden setting overlooking the pool and another larger one adjacent, as well as a dormitory style bungalow.
Service was A1.Nothing was too much trouble.
We were picked up at the airport as promised.
The locality suited us perfectly - away from the city, but a close bus ride there if we wanted to go, Worowia is set close to Mele village, the largest on the the Island.
Our bungalow was furnished simply, in 'Island' style, in keeping with the surroundings and locality.
The daily tropical breakfast( included in the tariff) was always beautifully presented with a variety of local fruit and complete with a flower on the tray.
Hideaway Island (with the best snorkelling) was a five minute walk to the jetty and five minute ferry ride away.
Mervyn, Janet and Valerie are a great team.It's the small things. What a delight to come back one afternoon to find that a lovely Christmas decoration had been hung on our front door.
If you are looking for value for money, want to enjoy staying somewhere other than a hotel or a big resort then Worawia is the place. It offers so much for so litte cost.
We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

I stayed in Worawia Holiday Haven for 7 days in late October 2009. I enjoyed my stay there. It is located 15 minutes bus ride from town centre, 5 minutes walk to Hideaway Island’s ferry and Mele Beach, and 15 minutes walk to Tana coffee shop (it is a worth visit for coffee lovers). Also, the resort is located very close to Mele Village which is the biggest village in Vanuatu. When I travel overseas, I always like to see how local people live and I had an opportunity to see this by visiting the village with one of the staff from the resort, Valerie who lives there with her family. That was a great experience for me.
Accommodation is basic however it was comfortable and clean. The room was cleaned everyday. The biggest asset of the resort is the staff. They are kind, friendly and helpful. Although I was the only guest, staff arranged a BBQ dinner one night – beautiful Vanuatu food with wonderful French wines (The owner of the resort brought those drops from his restaurant in Town. Thank you). I very much appreciated their gesture. It is a quite and relaxing place to rest and enjoy the holiday.
Thank you for making my holiday enjoyable and memorable. My special thanks to Janet and Valerie. I hope to see you again in the near future.
