Wedding Resorts Of Vanuatu

Vanuatu is a well-kept secret for many people (Fiji gets a lot more publicity!). While there are many terrific resorts in Vanuatu, it is much more than a ‘resort’ destination as there are so many activities, attractions and restaurants not far from most of the resorts. It is also closer to Australia, less expensive than most other Pacific destinations and it is easy to tailor weddings to suit couples needs and budgets.

Catholic, non-denominational weddings (with a pastor as celebrant) and civil ceremonies (sometimes with the Lord Mayor of Port Vila as celebrant) can be arranged. We only recommend properties that we have personally experienced and wedding packages range from around $1500 to $2500, depending on the location and the inclusions (some samples here).

Email us for packages and prices – a bit of a ‘wish list’ can help us make some suggestions/recommendations.

Following is an overview of some of the resorts:

Erakor Island Resort

Erakor Island Resort Totally refurbished Erakor Island Resort has a great location (five minutes from Port Vila by road and five minutes on the free 24-hour ferry).
