TAMANU ON THE BEACH OVERNIGHT RATE $585 (BEACHFRONT PLUNGE POOL VILLA)
Tamanu on the Beach knows the recipe for romance: open-air bathrooms, freestanding tubs, mosquito nets surrounding the beds and a French Caribbean vibe. Reopened in November 2016 after a $3 million upgrade and renovation after damage sustained in Cyclone Pam, the original six rooms have multiplied into 15 private villas that will make you want to decorate when you get home. The jewel in the crown of your Beachfront Plunge Pool Villa is its namesake, with just mere sandy steps between your pool and the Pacific Ocean. The resort faces its own white sand beach, 20 minutes from Downtown Port Vila. Organic South Pacific fare is served with fine dining flourish in the on-site restaurant.
