Eratap Beach Resort

YJ4AO, Villa 11, Eratap Beach Resort, Vanuatu. Eratap Point, Shefa, Vanuatu.In these times it is rare to find a slice of paradise so untouched yet so close to a major town. The community of Eratap still exist on a largely subsistence level and the natural environment has been protected from the pressures of population growth.Eratap beach resort is the first development of its kind in this area and we acknowledge the importance of practising responsible tourism. Our aim is to provide guests with a unique holiday experience that has a limited impact on the natural environment and a positive impact on the surrounding community.By restricting guest numbers, actively employing locals from Eratap, and sourcing materials and produce locally, we have made a small start. We look forward to sharing the Eratap experience with you.Eratap beach resort is less than 20 minutes drive south east of Port Vila. Situated on the most seaward peninsula of Eratap, six km off the main round island road, we are just 30 minutes from Port Vila’s international airport making for an easy transition between the plane and your villa.Facing north west the resort is protected from the brunt of the trade winds and is perfectly positioned to watch the sun set at any time of the year. The resort peninsula forms a natural divide between the ocean and lagoon providing direct access to either waves or still waters. With three private beaches, lagoon waterways and offshore islands to explore, the beauty of Eratap is absolutely unrivaled.Set on Eratap beach with views out to the Big Island sits the resort’s restaurant. With lounge areas, bar, open verandah and terrace it is a great place to watch the day unfold or the sunset of an evening. Enjoy a pre dinner drink, dine under the stars on the terrace or kick off your shoes and have a meal on the beach.Our Chef will create a daily selection of local and international cuisine prepared using the freshest locally grown produce. Sample Vanuatu’s famous organic beef, fresh lobster or the superb flesh of the deep sea “poulet” fish. Enjoy organic fruit and vegetables grown in the red volcanic soil of Vanuatu. Select from a wide range of fine Australian, New Zealand and French wines or sample the island cocktails. For a more intimate occasion have dinner by candlelight on your villa deck or your beach side lounge pavilion.Our kitchen opens at 7.00am and stays open all day till 10.00pm – so no need to eat during set times, just dine when you feel inclined.
