“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2013

This resort is not necessarily for the faint hearted, having said that we had the most spectacular stay and it was a definite highlight. The 'resort' is eco in every sense of the word, there is no electricity in the huts, and its shared meals in the common dining room where there is a powerpoint to charge all the assorted batteries etc, there is no phone reception. Having said that, it is peaceful, relaxing and how you would have imagined these islands to have been many years ago. The snorkling is truely spectacular, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is tasty local fare. Not designed for children.

“This is nature and humanity united”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

The Tetepare Descendents' Association (TDA) represents all the customary landowners of Tetepare Island, the largest uninhabited island in the south Pacific. They run an eco-tourism resort on one tip of the unspoiled island. Warfare, magic or famine drove the inhabitants away over a hundred years ago, but bloodlines strongly tie them to the island still. They came together in the 90s to save the island from being logged. Its website is www.tetepare.org. There you will find lots of lovely photos and more information. Visit the island and see endangered species like leatherback turtles, and unique ones like the Tetepare White Eye. Live in a lovely leaf house and sample gorgeous local food. Meet friendly Tetepare people and find out more. It is just paradise on earth.
