Ratua is Vanuatu’s unique luxury boutique eco lodge, 146 lush acres located approximately 30 minutes South-East of Espiritu Santo, and boasting 13 romantic bicentennial Indonesian-style villas in a serene and naturally stunning atmosphere.
This amazing island is also home to horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, and chickens that roam free across the land. The 13 Indonesian-style villas are shared between 3 villages: Fish Village, West Point Village and South Point Village.
These individual 200-year-old homes were brought specially to Ratua and reconstructed on sites offering stunning views with a private deck or beach.
Surrounded by lush gardens, each villa is beautifully furnished with eclectic, vintage pieces, a separate ensuite bathroom with toiletries and bathrobes, bar refrigerator, in-room safe, ceiling fans, private terrace and sun lounges with private beach/water access.
For the honeymooners and the nature lovers craving for a new experience, we invite you to discover the intimacy and magic of our very comfortable safari tent. Located along the sea, in a lush vegetation and protected from wind, induldge yourself and listen to the melody of the waves.
- Sunny Spa – Indulge at Ratua with our range of treatments in our very own overwater spa.
- Explore surrounding lagoons, reefs and blue holes where sea tortoises, bright coral gardens and colourful fish abound.
Depending on your mood, choose an elegant dinner on white linen in the Yacht Club dining room, a casual beach barbecue or a relaxed French-style tablecloth picnic on the white sands of nearby islands.
Menus are based on a simple philosophy of the best quality local ingredients. We use 100 percent fresh organic ingredients, mostly fruits and vegetables cultivated in the island’s Kitchen Garden–from pineapples, oranges and grapefruit, to coconuts, tarot, tomatoes and leafy greens. These are supplemented by local meats from the island's own cattle ranch and the catch of the day from local anglers.
