Tanna, Vanuatu

Two minutes drive from the airport, multi Award winning Tanna Evergreen Resort & Tours provides a unique volcanic island experience.

The resort is a haven of tranquillity by the sea with its “Coral Coast” alfresco restaurant, extensive tour desk and fleet of well maintained safari vehicles to take you to the volcano and everywhere else in Tanna.

15 bungalows strategically located under the shade of a giant banyan tree, placed to catch the cooling sea breezes and ocean sunset panoramas. As patrons continually reaffirm, the resort consistently delivers better value for money than all others.

The Numake family who own and operate Tanna Evergreen Resort & Tours have lived on Tanna Island for hundreds of years – a magical place where the permanently active Mount Yasur Volcano provides the perfect soil to grow 100% organic tropical fruits, vegetables and coffee all year round. The clear turquoise waters provide an abundance of fresh fish and lobsters.

The resort is constructed from trees and bamboo selected from the surrounding forest. The bungalows are made of local materials with excellent cross sea breeze ventilation. There are mosquito nets above all beds, books to read and a porch with table and chairs to take in the picturesque ocean sunsets.

Naturally home-grown Arabica Tanna coffee accompanied by wood-fired bread is served daily in the homely onsite alfresco restaurant.

Relax and indulge yourself with a hot spring water shower after a snorkelling session in the nearby pristine magnificent coral gardens.

The Numake family humbly invites you to their friendly botanical seaside resort and look forward to having your family share their island in the sun

Our Thoughts on Tanna Evergreen Resort & Tours
Over recent times Tanna Evergreen Resort has been improved and expanded. The recently completed restaurant and lounge building is proving very popular with guests. The menu is constantly refreshed and, as always, the food here is very much a feature. In Vanuatu terms, meals at Tanna Evergreen are very good value. The bungalows have been refurbished in the past 2 years and 2 brand new bungalows were added in 2013. With the new electricity generator the electricity supply is more reliable. Full internet and Wifi services have been added. Wifi access is now complimentary for guests at Tanna Evergreen. The complimentary snorkelling gear was new in 2012 and guests are now enjoying the new board games and playing cards, the little library, the Beach Volleyball and Petanque Courts as well as the table tennis area.

All the new facilities and services are a welcome improvement to the resort. What they have done is to greatly enhance and add to the original ambience and the wonderful relaxed, laid-back feeling of this place.

Tanna Evergreen is located on a low bluff just around the coast from the White Grass Ocean Resort which is virtually next door and easily accessible by a 300 or so metres walk along the reef at low tide, the distance is only slightly further by road. The volcanic rock coastline and the reef merge out front of Tanna Evergreen and while this means there is virtually no sand at this point of the coast, the reef does provide magnificent snorkelling especially at high tide. The view to the west from the restaurant and lounge, the Honeymoon Suite and the Ocean View Bungalows is spectacular, especially at sunset. The grounds and the gardens are beautiful.

The best way to enjoy Tanna is to spend a few days here and take a few of the personalised, organised tours on offer. Naturally, you will want to do the Yasur Volcano tour, but don’t overlook the many other worth-while tours on offer. Tanna Evergreen run an extensive range of tours to many places you just can’t get to independently. The Custom Villages on Tanna have changed very little over many, many years and a few of them are open to visitors (some are not). The villages are still run very much according to long established “custom” and that’s why they are referred to as “Custom Villages”. An organised visit to a Custom Village is a very worthwhile experience. We also recommend their Tanna Magic Tour & Local Kava Tasting – both kids and adults will be intrigued. The  North Tanna & the Blue Water Cave Tour where guests are assisted in a half metre dive through a short tunnel into a magical swimming cave are also well worth considering. Our Specialists will happily pre-book the tours for you.

Continental breakfast and complimentary Wifi access is included at Tanna Evergreen Resort.


Bullet Honeymoon Special:
Stay for 4 nights and only pay for 3 nights. Also enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine.
