"The setting for the resort is incredibly beautiful. Recommended to us by those that travel regularly to the pacific islands - it did not disappoint. The view from our villa of the crystal blue waters blew us away. Vanuatu is a wonderful place to visit and the Havannah helps to make the experience truly memorable."
