“Just a quick note to let you know  we had a flawless trip back which only highlighted the fabulous stay of ours at Tamarind Beach Estate.

We felt really privileged to be amongst your dreams to create this feeling which we know takes a lot.

Truly a seven star experience – thanks again to David and the team as well.

We know we will meet again.”

“I just wanted to write and let you know how I felt about our stay at Tamarind Beach.

I arrived uptight and wearing my shoulders as earrings.  Six days later I was strolling with ease and left wanting more. 

The location is called  Paradise Cove for a reason!

Opening the shutter doors to wonderland while sipping a coffee, watching the kids play happily on the beach was pure bliss.

Tamarind Beach Estate has clearly been created with such love and a keen eye for detail that every need is met and more.  From the most comfortable luxurious beds to the Nakamals and pockets of spaces created within the grounds.

My time was spent snorkeling and paddle boarding, napping and lolling about whilst sipping my favourite drink and generally just loving every moment spent with my family and friends. 

A true little piece of paradise…with a private helipad no less!

I feel really happy to have experienced such leisurely luxury.

Thank you!”

“If idyllic surroundings in a tranquil setting are what you crave, your every wish will be granted at the truly beautiful Tamarind Beach Estate, Vanuatu. I have been fortunate to stay, not once but twice, at this luxurious heaven on earth.

The two guest houses are superbly furnished, Tamarind and Toa are both complete with everything you’ll need to make this holiday perfect, from the very best linens to your own Nespresso coffee machine.”

Enjoy cocktails on your deck or in one of the beach Nakamals and watch the glorious sunset. You may even see a cruise ship glide by or dolphins. Swim in the pristine waters, relax on your private beach or take one of the kayaks for a paddle while you investigate the shoreline.

As soon as you arrive at Tamarind Beach you’ll be amazed at the beauty of your surroundings and your body and soul will respond immediately to ‘Vanuatu Time’, peace and harmony prevail. Once you’ve unwound visit the fabulous local markets in Port Villa or take a drive around the island, there’s plenty to do and see if you’re feeling adventurous.

I guarantee, once you’ve experienced the beauty of Tamarind Beach, you will want to return again and again.”

“Our family of four have been extremely fortunate to have had the pleasure of holidaying at Tamarind Beach twice now. Upon arrival you pinch yourself making sure it is indeed real.

The setting is simply amazing. Tropical palm trees, white sandy beach and stunning vegetation await you. Then you enter the accommodation and it gets even better! Each villa is exquisitely styled to perfection. The villas are extremely comfortable, with nothing forgotten. We found staples provided (milk, bread etc) and things like a coffee machine an added bonus. Enjoying a coffee in the morning (or a cocktail in the evening!) from the deck of our villa was the perfect way to enjoy the picturesque sunrises and sunsets.

The rooms and bathrooms are luxurious and each window offers a glimpse into the world outside – your own private beach and sparkling turquoise waters await you! The coral reef provides an amazing snorkeling experience with sea life in abundance. Our children loved seeing hundreds of versions of ‘Nemo’ darting in and out of the coral and we loved seeing this and more from the stand-up paddle boards and kayaks provided for our use.

Pango village is full of smiling and welcoming NiVans (the local people) and Port Vila offers many restaurants with all sorts of cuisines. We also walked to the neighbouring resort that has its own private restaurant where we dined at the water’s edge.

Our holidays at Tamarind Beach have been nothing short of surreal. We felt like we stepped into another world. It is clear the owners have put a lot of work into these properties ensuring all visitors feel the same as we did. We can’t wait for our next holiday at this perfect piece of paradise.”

Five night stay at Tamarind Beach. Situated at Paradise Cove, Vanuatu.

Could not be more perfectly named, 10 meters from the most perfect, private little beach.

Our accommodation consisted of a very lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage. Just delightful. The view from the terrace is breathtakingly beautiful, the garden surrounds just as lovely.

Hiring a car would be recommended as approximately 15 to 20 minutes from town.

Complete privacy, a little bit of heaven, and our hosts could not have been more charming or helpful. Magic!

“We had the most amazing holiday at Tamarind Beach Estate. The property is truly magnificent. Every possible top quality detail has been considered to make your stay relaxing and luxurious.

The position is private and protected away from the main residence and is situated right on the beach with the ocean only steps away. You have your own private island set up.

There were beautiful island staff who looked after our every need and made us feel as though we were a part of their local community.

The weather was superb! We loved it so much and will go back again and again and again.

Gus Worland and family – Sydney


“Just wanted to say that we are all blown away by how beautiful and luxurious and special your Tamarind Beach villa and grounds are.

We’ve done a lot of traveling and this is as good as it gets in my opinion. You’ve done great justice to a very special part of the world.

Anyway, enough gushing from me! David was fantastic too, but I expect you already know that.”

Stefan W – Sydney

“We absolutely loved our stay at Tamarind Beach. It exceeded our (high) expectations in every area.

David was very kind and thoughtful. I loved that there were so many places to sit in the shade but still be outdoors enjoying the water.

You have created a wonderful atmosphere of calm tropical beauty, that is just perfect for relaxation.

We would love to stay at Tamarind Beach again next year!”

Donna K – Sydney

“Just breathtaking! From the moment we arrived until we headed home, everything was perfect.

The homes are just stunning and the location has to be seen to be believed! The snorkeling straight from you own private beach is magnificent and teeming with sea life.

The staff were lovely and so helpful. Without doubt one of the best holidays we’ve ever had. Thank you Liz, Michael and David for everything. We’ll definitely be back!!!”

“I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday at Tamarind Beach.  It’s such a special place, thank you for sharing it with us.
Mark is disappointed he missed out, but I’m hoping that if you’ll have us back he’ll be able to join us next time.

David was so lovely and helpful.  Please pass on our thanks for his help in making our stay so special.”
