Travellers' Choice
The Moso Vanuatu is an exclusive boutique resort and dining destination located on stunning Moso Island, North Efate, Vanuatu - The Moso is pure paradise. Largely untouched, Moso Island is an isolated sanctuary, surrounded by crystal-clear blue water and shaded by rustling coconut trees. Just 2 ½ hours flight from Brisbane and 3 ½ hours from Sydney and Auckland, we will arrange your airport transfer which is a scenic 25-minute drive from the airport and a short boat ride across the beautiful Havannah Harbour. For day-trippers parking is available and we’ll arrange the boat to meet you. Relaxation and escape are what we require from you while we take care of the rest. With five premium villas and bistro & bar, we cater to couples looking for a secluded romantic sanctuary, groups wishing for that uniquely memorable celebration or day-trippers visiting for a bite to eat and a snorkel.

I just has a fantastic weekend at The Moso. Excellent food, excellent room, excellent service - not much more to be said really. Wish that I could have stayed longer - a couple of months would have been ideal.

I had never considered holiday if in Vanuatu and arrived with slightly unsure of the wisdom of the choice. What a lovely surprise. A short boat trip to Mosso in the moonlight was entrancing and fun and the beginning of the end of any doubts. The islands made me think of Bali before it’s overwhelming development. This place is beautiful and serene and a hidden gem. The resort was fabulous, the local staff delightful and eager to help, the food terrific, endless fun, each new day feeling better than the last. Can’t wait to return.

We had never been to Vanuatu before and we chose The Moso, a gorgeous island a short transfer by mini bus and boat to Moso island. And when we arrived we were greeted by some of the best most memorable and luxurious island paradise I’ve ever experienced. From the beach and palm trees and swimming pools to the fabulous food, cocktails and service with a smile. The staff were fabulous particularly Julie and we just read our books, snorkelled and enjoyed our pina coladas and the most difficult thing we had to worry about was whether to move from the sunlounge to the hanging tree chairs. The Moso resort is a real gem, beautiful villa rooms complete with private plunge pools, massages and the most friendly staff with the biggest smiles you can imagine - truly perfect if you want to just wind back, relax indulge yourself a little and enjoy the ultimate in island life. Definitely worth the visit, you will want to go back - you will be transported to a rare island paradise just a short hop away. Take me back to Moso! Andy and Greg

This property is perfection in every way! The location, the ambiance, the food, the accommodation and facilities, the staff and of course the hosts! The rooms are of a very high standard and have all the comforts, but still have island style! The food and of course the cocktails are amazing and utilize all the fresh local produce that is available, some of it grown in their own gardens. The staff are smiling and so helpful and professional and take care of your every need. The location speaks for itself - AMAZING! Surrounded by pristine blue water great for exploring! The hosts - what can I say! They make your stay a truly amazing experience. Highly recommend for either a romantic escape or a family holiday, The Moso covers it all!
