Ratua Island in Vanuatu is only 30-minute boat ride from Espiritu Santo Airport and has a private plane from Port Vila direct to Ratua Island’s own private runway which is available for special request and will only take one hour. This beautiful Vanuatu Island Resort is small but has a lot to offer with rich sanctuary of flora and fauna, from waterfalls to white beaches and turquoise waters. RatuaPrivate Island is a wild magical place with authentic people who offer a warm reception in a naturally beautiful environment.
The 15 Villas, set in three little villageson the private island (Fish Village, West Point Village, South Point Village), are more than 200 years old, having incredibly been brought here from Indonesia and reconstructed. Each has a private terrace and either one or two bedrooms surrounded by lush gardens. A concept to give pause but that in reality goes well with the island’s lush landscape. This is more than just a hotel,Ratua is an experience in itself.
