My husband and a close friend travelled to Vanuatu for a close friends wedding and wanted something different to your normal resort experience. With 25 friends staying in town we could visit just about any resort we wanted!

We opted for beautiful Bukura and boy were we glad we did. We picked up our hire car from the airport and went straight to the supermarket for supplies (recommend you go to the one next to the markets in town it's better stocked and you can base your purchases on the delights you find at the markets). The house was easy to find but with all the wet weather the roads were pretty rough (they were filling pot holes as we left!) but this just added to the experience.

We were met at the gate by Obed, Eke, their beautiful children and friendly cat Meow. The house is just wonderful, stylish but comfortable. The kitchen is fabulously appointed which is always my concern as a really passionate cook. It was great fun to create a 'mystery box' from the markets and create amazing meals in the kitchen and on the BBQ.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are large, comfortable and well equipped with great quality linen and towels. The walk in robes are a dream!

Waking up to the crashing surf each morning, a quick dip in the sensational ocean pool was followed by breakfast overlooking the ocean to plan our adventures for the day. With Robin's agreement we had a 'post wedding' get together with some of our friends and they just loved the house. The CD collection helped the party atmosphere and we popped down to Benjor later in the night for some take away pizzas.

There are quite a lot of pretty little fish in the pool, it was a bit rough at the time (not long after the cyclone in Fiji) to go out on the reef unfortunately but I bet it's gorgeous from what we could see.

In summary, you really do feel like you've stepped into another world at Bukura where you are privileged to experience Robin's little slice of heaven.

A few tips:

- Tamanu for lunch is an absolute must and worth the drive
- We took a stove top coffee maker - should have taken coffee too
- You can buy a bag of ice from Banjor for cocktails
- snorkelling at Hidden Island is fabulous
- Lotus Day Spa is sensational
- Don't bother with the skim milk

We'd go back in a heartbeat!! Thank you Robin for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed 15 February 2012 for a stay in October 2011

We came here on a first few days in Vanuatu, for our honeymoon. Its was absolutely beautiful, we wanted to stay longer. Its a dreamy place, waking up to the noise of the water crashing on to the rocks, going for a swim in the ocean pool, sitting in the many relaxing places around the property. Its amazing! We would recommend this to anyone. The managers of this place are very welcoming and helpful, they also make sure you have your own privacy. I will definitely be going back here!
