Review: A South Pacific Paradise On Moso Island


Book A Stay

Anyone dreaming of a secluded island paradise will fall in love with The Moso Vanuatu on Moso Island, a luxury resort located on the stunningly beautiful and unspoiled Moso Island, just off North Efate, Vanuatu. No matter how stressful your day to day life, this picture perfect travel destination with its crystal clear waters, white sands and shady coconut trees will have you feeling rested and relaxed in no time. With no roads and no cars, this really is a secluded little piece of heaven in the South Pacific, yet it’s not far to the mainland should you start to crave more activity. Various airlines offer flights from London Heathrow to Brisbane, including British Airways and Qantas. From Brisbane, a 2 ½ hour connecting flight will take you to Port Vila on the main island of Efate, Vanuatu. The Moso will arrange your transfer – a 25 minute scenic drive and short boat ride – to Moso Island.

The Moso is an exclusive, luxury resort comprising five villas, each with its own dedicated valet, a bar and bistro, pool and of course a stunning beach, complete with very inviting over water hammocks. Designed with total relaxation in mind, it’s ideal for couples looking for a romantic break away from it all, though larger groups (with or without young children) have the option to book the entire resort for a special and truly memorable holiday.

All five villas have been designed to blend harmoniously with the natural environment. Living spaces feature large screens, giving guests the option to enjoy the stunning views when they choose and also to ensure total privacy when required. All villas feature a king size bed and ensuite bathroom, and décor is chic and minimal, with lots of white and natural wood. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available, and TVs and hairdryers can be provided upon request. Two of the villas boast their own private plunge pools and outdoor baths. Villa Tip – All the villas are great, but opting for one with a private plunge pool is highly recommended.

Restaurant and Bar
From breakfast through to lunch, sundowners and dinner, the bistro and bar is on hand. Dishes are inspired by the local culture and prepared with fresh ingredients from Vanuatu – some are even grown at The Moso itself. The atmosphere is relaxed. Simply sit back and enjoy the gorgeous views while you dine. After the meal, why not enjoy a drink or two? The cocktail menu is well worth exploring! If you’d rather eat in the privacy of your villa, this can be arranged through your personal valet, while if you’re celebrating a special occasion, the team will be happy to prepare a romantic meal for two on the beach, or a seafood BBQ complete with firework display for groups.

Pool and Activities
Whether you prefer lounging by the pool or relaxing on a beautiful beach, you have the choice of both at The Moso. The aquamarine waters offer some great snorkelling, and the resort has equipment you can use at any time. Other activities well worth pursuing are diving, exploring the deserted beaches of Moso Island, boat and fishing trips, visits to the mainland and island massage, which can be arranged for you at the resort. Don’t forget to ask your personal valet to arrange a picnic for you if you’re heading off on a day trip.

If you’re looking to book The Moso for a special occasion, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team beforehand. They’ll be only too happy to liaise with you over any arrangements needed to make sure your big day is as perfect and memorable as you could wish for.
