Hi Malsywals, Sorry that I didn't see your question sooner. Ripples is located a 20 to 25 minute drive out of Port Vila. The cheapest way to get here with public transport is via bus. We can arrange a bus to pick you up and drop you back for 3000vt return. Cheers, Sally

Hi Shane & Anna, Is this message intended for Ripples on the Bay? We have no Jim and Linda here. Anyway, in case it is, we have a restaurant on site (Ripples Cafe), with a menu that includes burgers, fish and chips, and steaks, as well as several Asian and South Asian dishes (for which we are best known), lights meals, and a specials board. A continental/tropical breakfast is included in the room rate, with cooked breakfasts also available. As I mentioned in my previous resonse, we have availability from 3/7/15 All the best, Damien & Sally
