These locally owned and operated Vanuatu bungalows are scattered, some suspended on a lush cliff which overlooks the charming Cook's Hat Bay. Sunrise Bungalows are aptly named once you have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful ocean sunrise, with your elevated position making it that much better.
Take in the fresh, pure and crisp forest oxygen. The location of Sunrise Bungalows is a true nature lover's paradise. Once you are settled in your bungalow, follow a path to the beach where you will find the water temperature usually quite warm, some say it's due to the underground volcanic hot springs. After the beach trip, check out the local villages or the tree house located about 15 minutes walk away. Sorry, Hotel don't book it in the interest of safety to clients.
Sunrise Bungalows provides a host of tours and activities to choose from on Tanna Island. Whether you are here for the volcano or looking for a relaxing snorkel (best to bring your own equipment when travelling in the islands), or swimming in Port Resolution Bay chilling out in the hot spring water mixing in with the ocean, touring Kastom Villages, or Fekar Waterfall or just unwinding.
There are several different styles of bungalows to choose from, each catering to singles, couples or families with shared "western style" facilities. There are 3 toilets and 3 showers with cold water only, shared amongst 5 bungalows. A few bungalows have private indoor facilities.
Hotel provide a tropical breakfast daily which is included in the room rate. Transfers to and from the airport are available at extra cost. There is a generator on the property which provides lighting at night and we have fresh spring water on tap. The panoramic view from this location and sheer drop offs is stunning; however a danger to young ones does exist so ask that parental supervision be essential to avoid any mishaps. Remember, the bungalows are rather basic but you will leave this place with magical memories.
