Guide to Santo

Vanuatu’s largest island is a touch wilder than Port Vila, but the dash of adventure just makes it more exciting. On Espiritu Santo, world-class resorts are juxtaposed with dense jungle and carefully guarded ways of life, so you’ll get the full scope of the Vanuatu holiday experience.

Where to stay

There’s no better way to get the complete holiday escape experience than by staying on your own private isle. So for that reason, our most highly recommended places to sleep in the Santo area are all on exclusive islands! Staying at any of the Santo accommodation on offer is guaranteed to give you the holiday of your dreams.

Aore Island Resort

This is a boutique retreat with beachfront bungalows opening right onto ideal snorkelling spots. Whether it’s sipping cocktails by the pool or strolling along the beach under the shade of swaying palm trees, this resort is a taste of the luxe Santo island life.

Ratua Private Island Resort

Here you’ll find the perfect escape from the rush of modern life. The villa-style accommodation is surrounded by 146 acres of private island, so you’ll have plenty of breathing space, while the over-water spa and superb dining options give you the chance to relax in style. The resort’s commitment to sustainability and the local community just adds to the perfection.

Bokissa Island Resort

Surrounded by rainforest and coral reefs, Bokissa makes the most of the pristine environment – produce is grown on the land around the resort and seafood is delivered fresh by fishermen. Plus, as well as fully relaxed guests, sea turtles and dugongs are sometimes seen in the water around the island.
