PO Box 396
Hidden within the pristine islands of Vanuatu is a little island paradise, an idyllic venue for intimate weddings, honeymoons, corporate rest and recreation, or family getaways - Ratua Private Island.
Ratua Private Island offers a unique eco-lodge and authentic pacific experience combined with its charming character that makes this destination appealing to passionate adventurers and nature lovers. Staying in any of the Indo-Oceania inspired villas which are handcrafted from 200-year old Indonesian teak houses is a celebration in itself!
Thirteen villas are spread in three villages, each veiled with lush vegetation leading to its own private beach with breathtaking view of turquoise water while guests are limited up to 38 to preserve its natural surroundings and to ensure utmost privacy.
From Espiritu Santo mainland, a fun and refreshing 30 to 45-minute motorboat ride marks the beginning of an adventure of a lifetime. From Port Vila, travellers may opt to fly by Air Ratua, Ratua’s Private Airline, directly to Ratua while discovering coastal sceneries and small islands along the way from a bird’s eye view.
Upon arrival, warm smiles welcome all travellers while slowly immersing in the local culture. Take pleasure in one-of-a-kind adventures such as swimming with horses, canoeing to Malo blue hole, snorkelling at the nearby colourful reef, fishing, watch sea turtles as they feed on sea grass while paddle boarding, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the serenity of the place.
Fitness buffs’ may explore the 146-acre island by running, walking, cycling, or horseback riding where farm animals roam freely. Travellers may also indulge their senses at Ratua’s overwater Sunny’s Spa where various treatments are available to relax the body, mind and soul. Dining is exciting as the kitchen works with its own organic produce and from neighbouring islands along with fresh catch from local anglers. Complementing the food is a select wine hailed from the owner’s boutique winery in Southwest France.
Whist secluded from the modern world, Ratua offers wifi connection at its Yacht Club, the social hub of the island. Rich cultural entertainments are offered in most nights in addition to the innate beauty of nature and starry skies that completes a magical day in paradise.
On top of all these, Ratua Private Island is 100% non-profit. Proceeds are directed to the Ratua Foundation (ratuafouncation.com) who aids in the literacy programs of primary schools in Vanuatu.
