Rockwater Resort

Tanna Island, Vanuatu

Rockwater Resort Logo

Rockwater Resort

The Rockwater Resort is a boutique luxury resort on the remote island of Tanna. It offers a great option for experiential travellers, couples and adventurers to step off the well-travelled routes and see Vanuatu in its untrammelled natural beauty. Plus, it addresses the problem that visitors to Mount Yasur volcano face – one short half day visit is just not enough! The Rockwater Resort is set next to Ipak Bay on the north-west side of Tanna Island, on the very opposite side of Mount Yasur. Travellers will disembark a 45-minute domestic flight from Port Vila to reach Tanna; from there, the resort is but a 20-minute drive on a 4x4 SUV. After two years of seclusion, Tanna and Vanuatu are even more beautiful than before. The drive to the resort goes along the coast and through subtropical forests, giving an exciting preview of the fun holiday ahead. Read More...

Things to do in Tanna, Vanuatu

Of course, the main attraction for any visitor to Tanna Island is the smoking, rumbling Mount Yasur. The resort organises regular tours to the volcano as well as the villages and tribes nearby. Keep your phone and camera memory empty, there are over 270-degree visual panoramas which simply blows travellers’ minds away. One tour is simply not enough. Then, after a traveller has one’s fill of Mount Yasur, a definite check-out would be the Jon Frum tribe of Tanna, Vanuatu. Their beliefs and legends are simply unforgettable, honestly. Another one would be the local Yakel Kastom village.

Let’s be clear, the overland tours are not the end all and be all of Tanna, oh no. There’s the Blue Cave tour at North Tanna where, depending on the weather conditions, you can experience a very Bond-style ocean cave. And let’s not ignore that the Rockwater Resort offers its guests free and unfettered access to a 25 sq km marine conservation zone. There are no sharks observed, but snorkellers will come up face to face with a rich coral ecosystem, along with pods of dolphins, turtles and whales.
