Loved It!

We started our Vanuatu trip with a stay at Trees and Fishes resort. From the moment of first contact with Angele when planning this trip – to the sad goodbyes with Jeanine when she dropped us off at our next stop – it was that touch of extra care you do not come across often […]

We had an amazing time at Trees and Fishes.

Photos do not do justice to the whole experience here. We have been staying in Port Vila for 4 months, and being at Trees and Fishes felt like discovering another side of paradise. Jeanine and her team make you feel like family, and the food we had there was some of the best we’ve had […]

I wanted to let you know, how much my partner and I enjoyed our stay at Tree’s and Fishes and Ocean Blue.

It was a memorable experience for us, which was made possible by the staff who exceeded our expectations with their hospitality. We would like to give a special mention to a couple of staff members… Jeanine for organising a truly perfect engagement suprise. She went above and beyond for us. Not only with the proposal, […]

Everything was perfect

The boys had a wonderful time at your resort. The staff were unbelievably polite and courteous. All of the guests have discussed returning next year. Aydin Acar – Rockform Group – Australia

Piece of paradise made even better by the hospitality of Jeanine and the team. We will be back! Patrick Cooper
