We have stayed at The Havannah 3 times now and it is consistently excellent. It is the most peaceful location in Vanuatu - like a completely different world from the area around Port Vila and much less windy than Eratap.

Dear GypsyGold99 Thank you for our review of the Havannah, Vanuatu. We are effectively on the lee side of the island and our weather is very different from the Port Vila forecast. We are the sunshine coast of Efate! Mind you, today is not the case and we are a little bit overcast. I am glad you have enjoyed again...

About 3.5 hours from SYD, simple quarantine and customs, west of Fiji, northwest of New Caledonia, ..., we flew in on a Air Vanuatu B737 (though apparently VLI airport is rated up to A330).
