Laid back Tropical Paradise

Fantastic island getaway with easy access to the stunning natural world of Espiritu Santo.
Property is right on the water - step off your balcony and snorkel into the water to discover loads of tropical fish. All the grounds and facilities are very well maintained. Lovely, authentic style rooms and restaurant/bar areas. Great staff, always friendly. Enjoyed two great cultural shows at night while we were there - both included in the tariff. Went snorkelling, kayaking and bike riding with all equipment included in the tariff. Met some lovely couples and young families. With direct flights to Santo from Brisbane now available and flight time under 3 hours - what a great getaway for a week. Lovely property owners who go out of their way to make your stay special. We arrived at the ferry jetty during a torrential downpour and in the dark. Met by the owner, Brad, who tried his utmost to keep us and our luggage dry and then ferried 10 minutes through the rain and darkness to our island destination. Even during the rain, we were greeted at the resort by co-owner Lisa with umbrellas, fresh coconut drinks and personally escorted to our rooms. Great stay.
