‘Good Harbour’ resort

Port Vila harbour

Worawia Holiday Haven is one of the very few Ni-Vanuatu inspired and built Vanuatu bungalows. ‘Ni-Vanuatu’ is what the local people of Vanuatu call themselves. Worawia (which means ‘Good Harbour’ in the local language) was a long-time dream of hosts, Saipir and Alice Solomon. After years of hard work and never losing their vision, it became a reality in 1999 with the assistance and support of a small private group of overseas patrons. Since late 2004 there has been a change of management and ownership / partnership arrangements at the resort and it is now being run jointly by expatriate manager/partners and Saipir and Alice Solomon, with the help from 12 hand-picked local staff.

Traditionally styled bungalows with modern facilities

Worawia resort bungalows

This “Mini Resort” or Lodge offers guests a unique blend of traditional exterior and surrounding structure and exposure to village culture. This is combined with self- contained, modern interior designed 'fares' or bungalows decorated in local traditional woven bamboo walls, with glass-louvred windows, exposed ceiling beams and polished wooden floors. Cooled by ceiling fans, these self-contained bungalows have a fully self-contained kitchenette, dining setting, and a double bedroom. The Family 3-bedroom large bungalow sleeps up to 6 persons; 2 Regular bungalows cater for 3 or 4 persons, while the fourth, the Honeymooners bungalow specially caters for honeymoon couples or singles or couples wanting a get away from the stress of everyday living for a week or two. Recently added spacious 4-room Dormitory offers bed & breakfast for groups of up to 16 persons.

Conference room and convenience store

Convenience store

The main reception area houses Alice's Eatery, a small conference/meeting room (which doubles as TV room in the evening) and the 'Smol Stoa' convenience store which sells basic food, drinks and personal items, as well as hand-crafted souvenirs. International phone and fax is available and an internet kiosk is being made available from 2006 onwards. Also from 2006 onwards, Worawia is now the official Community Postal Agency for Mele and Mele-Maat area, selling postage stamps and post cards. Mail collection and receipt services are also available, provided on a regular basis by Vanuatu Post Ltd. More products and services such as Telecom Vanuatu Ltd. phonecards and public phone booth are earmarked for implementation in 2006. Other services may also become available during the course of 2006. Watch this space for further updates!

Port Vila Golf & Country Club course

Tour desk

The reception desk can book tours, activities and inter-island flights, and also arrange fishing, watersports, snorkeling, scuba diving and even a round of golf at the adjacent 18-hole Port Vila Golf & Country Club, where the Vanuatu Open Golf Tournament is held every year.

Swimming pool and bar

Resort pool and bar

The swimming pool features a swim-up pool bar serving snacks, drinks and cocktails. It’s surrounded by green lawn with poolside furniture and plenty of room where kids can play under the watchful eye of their parents. Child-minding service (at a small cost) is also available. A recent new addition of a hut (Nakamal) with a gas barbecue adds to the pool atmosphere.

Nearby attractions

Cascades waterfall bridge

Worawia and Hideaway Cove long sandy beaches with their grey volcanic sand, are located just a few minutes walk away. The Cascades Waterfalls are 5-minute drive down the road, featuring cascaded rockpools and waterfalls. Don’t forget to bring you sandals; so that you can spend a whole day bushwalking, hill claiming and swimming in clear cool coral rock pools.

Or stroll down the road and visit the Botanical Gardens, to learn more about the local flora and fauna, as well as many and varied local culture and customs from different islands. For something different, visit the nearby horse-riding ranch.

Resort outdoor seating

'Alice’s Eatery'

After a hard day of activities, you can place an order at Alice’s Eatery, to dine at our friendly open air Nakamal Hut by the poolside at our resort. The menu mixes Melanesian and international flavours, while house specialty is Alice’s Island Curry. You can also order your meals at reception for delivery to your bungalow.

Port Vila attractions

Port Vila markets

Or go exploring some of the many local restaurants in Port Vila. Our staff will be happy to recommend many different, waterfront and hillside restaurants, from Chinese to French, from Italian to Aussie.

While in town, visit the local 24-hour green market, take a leisurely walk along the waterfront in town, lounge in the park overlooking the harbour, or enjoy drinks, music and dance at one of the many night bars in town.

Duty Free shop in Port Vila

During the day, do your shopping at many duty free shops, or visit some of the landmark local buildings around the town and enjoy the town and harbour sights from many different vantage points around the town’s hillsides.

There are several grocery supermarkets in town, a post office, local National Bank of Vanuatu branch, as well as ANZ and Westpac branches, with several ATM’s around the town.

Authentic Melanesian Feast Night

Feast night performers

Every Thursday night, for a taste of the indigenous culture, look no further than Solo’s authentic Melanesian Feast Night. You will learn about the local village people history and customs, dine on buffet style ‘earth oven’ cooked local specialties, sample kava, and be entertained by traditional dances and music. You will enjoy the company of the guests from many other resorts in and around Port Vila, who come to Worawia every Thursday especially for the Feast Night.

Visit us soon and you will experience our family-style hospitality and friendly service, whereby you will quickly become reluctant to leave and will understand why our guests are full of praise and keep coming back.
