Rachel will serve you tropical fruit for breakfast as part of a continental breakfast. Lunches and Dinners are on a 'plate of the day' basis and are served in a modern island style. If you are going out the following day with Esso on one of his many amazing tours, ask the night before, if you can have a 'packed lunch' for the next day.

Unforgettable Accommodation.

Let Esso, Rachel and their Family show you the essence of Tanna. They have built three large Accommodation 'Nima' Bungalows on their Family Land for your enjoyment and pleasure. Each Nima has broad views across the Tanna landscape, with Mount Yasur Volcano as a backdrop. Tanna Adventures accommodationis situated in Central Tanna, within the main coffee growing area of 'Middlebush', and is relatively close to most attractions, the main town of Lenakel and the airport.

Unlike most tourist and traveller accommodation in the Vanuatu, Tanna Adventures is located inland on the high plateau, enjoys a milder climate and has extensive banyan trees and tree ferns amongst the lush bush and rainforest.

Rachel will be your host at the accommodation
