Location

This retreat takes place in Vanuatu on the island of Efate. Vanuatu is one of the South Pacifics best kept secrets and totally underrated.  Vanuatu attained independence in 1980 and today the country relies heavily on tourism to support the country's economy and growth.

The Vanuatu life, respect and community spirit runs deep in their culture. Kava, a plant root, a drug, the South Pacific equivalent of alcohol, plays a huge role in everyones life both directly and indirectly. Ni-Vans have strong values and ideals, and are often know to be great at living for the day!

 

Village customs are often but not always adhered to, but elders are very aware of ideal behavior. In outer island villages, Vanuatu food is traditional but many alternatives such as tin fish and breakfast crackers are changing the old-fashioned way of life. Guests can find some of the ways of life culturally challenging such as the language barrier.

All over Vanuatu, you will see a strong sense of love from the people and pride when it comes to their country. Although while still sometimes there are inter racial challenges and stereotypes, you will still always see the sense of family and community connection when it comes to daily lives, either shopping, fixing a broken down truck, illness or injury or even on your drive home as they all wave to perfect strangers. Tourists are treated like royalty and always given special treatment when it come to engaging in local communities, it is something so humbling and the local Melanesian generosity and genuineness is far greater than any other island.  Values and ideals too are still firmly in place as generations talk and live with each other allowing for the flow of inter-generational knowledge and respect. It is a special place, full of soul, and the warmth of the Vanuatu people is overwhelming.

During your stay, you will be fully emerged with these communities and have a chance to really live the village lifestyle with sensitivity to their values and traditions.
