This is a quick e-mail to thank you for organising our stay at Worawia. Bill & I didn't want to leave. Just to refresh your memory, we went for a week, 15th - 22nd, July. The resort was great and had everything we needed, but what made our stay special, was the staff. Solo and the other staff went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble. Please thank him again for me. P.S: Theme night (Melanesian Feast Night) at Worawia is the best one on the island!!

Hello to all at Worawia...Sorry this email has been a long time coming, it has been a very busy time for us all since our arrival back home. So much has happened but we are all the more pleased to have had such a memorable holiday with such lovely people. Tahnee my daughter said it was one of the best experiences of her life, and we all thank you for your warm and generous hospitality. We all felt we were leaving family and so was sad to say goodbye to you all. I would not hesitate to recommend your accommodation to family and friends and wish you all the success and happiness in the future. Warm regards,
Rathish, Julie & Tahnee, AUSTRALIA - April 2006

Hello!…We had a good arrival yesterday. Everybody go to their homes, Claudine and me go to work today. We distribute presents for friends who work with us and give them Tanna coffee cup, traditional bags, etc., telling them how we were welcome in Vanuatu! What we visited and like about you is your generosity. Big thanks for these nice days in your country and in Mele village.
Aline, NEW CALEDONIA – January 2006

Hi Solo, …Alice,… & everyone at Worawia including little Antonio and all the kids. We had such a great time 2 weeks ago with you and miss you all. It was a very special time indeed and we talk about it all the time. There were so many special times, Solo’s feast, meeting people like at the marvelous lunch feast at Ekipe, with Janet to the markets and the church service in Mele village. Of course Vanuatu is spectacularly beautiful place with reef fish, coral etc, but most of all getting to know you a bit while we were there was just great. We hope and pray you and your families are well and we are looking forward to coming again after saving up some more!
Tony & Carol, NSW, Australia – September 2005

We had a fabulous time over there and we are freezing back home now! 5 degrees some days. My suntan is slowly fading. I promised Solo and Alice that I would send some pictures to you all.
The Prelcs, South Australia – June 2005

This is Hiro, stayed with you from Dec. 18 to 24, 2004. I hope you remember me. I am now in my mother country Japan, and working hard. Now in Japan, it is very cold, sometimes snow-shower falling. Thank you for your comfortable room and equipments. We enjoyed you and your country Vanuatu. That was very glad to me, no, us. Very good memory for us. If I have chance or time and money, we hope to visit you again.
Hiro, from Japan – January 2005

I would like to thank ALL the staff of “Worawia” for the exceptional level of friendliness and professional service they have provided. There has been six times now that I have stayed at “Worawia”. Every stay has been a very enjoyable time. I can truthfully say that I have made some good friends… Tangkiu tumas, tata.

…Daniel and I had a wonderful holiday in Vila in August and so glad we chose to live at Worawia. Everyone made us feel so welcome and it was a great bonus being so close to Mele village. We hope everyone is well and I hope to be back in July 2004 with my other son Christopher who also has fond memories of his childhood in Vila.
Dave, SCOTLAND - 2003

I’ve had a lovely time, thank you! It’s beautiful here. I wish I could get an apartment as nice as my bungalow. All best wishes to you all.

We have returned to Canberra to work and school. Thank you once again for your hospitality whilst we were in Vanuatu. It was a great two weeks.
Neil, AUSTRALIA

Thank you all for an excellent stay at Vanuatu. Our time at Worawia was most enjoyable. Thank you for the wonderful personal service offered. The Feast Night is a must. Many thanks to all the staff, especially Dorothy for trying to teach my girlfriend to cook. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Well we came back again a year later and everything was as great as we remembered it! Thank you to everyone! Happy 2002!
Nathalie & Guy

Had a wonderful time – so many smiling faces! Hope to come back again soon. Pancakes + cards are a great way to spend a tropical evening. P.S: I want
Manuel’s job!

Much appreciation to John and his staff for making our stay in Vanuatu a memorable one. What can I say that Worawia and its crew don't say louder!! No doubt one of the best accommodation set ups in Port Vila and Vanuatu - only complaint is that we didn't check-in earlier and spent all of our time out here. Next time for sure … Wouldn't look further than Worawia. Thanks John, Solo and staff for your hospitality. Much appreciated! See U soon!!
Asherah, Jax, AUSTRALIA

We very much enjoyed our stay here with you. Efficient and clean rooms with warm & friendly staff are always a winning combination. God Bless!
Ron & Sandy from Phoenix, AZ, U.S.A.

We hope we can come back again - to this beautiful place, the friendly people and the beautiful country. We wish you the best for your business and we will recommend you to all our friends. Best wishes for you!

Thank you so much for the happy and kind natured people. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, the staff especially, at Worawia. A great place to visit, relax and unwind for the whole family.
Family Boje, VICTORIA – February 2001

Thank you so much to you all for making us feel “part of the family”. A beautiful place to relax and enjoy the friendliness you have shown us. The “feast” was delicious too, the dancing fun, we will leave here with happy memories, smile and a hope to return.
Kirstie, Aisling, Niamh – April 2001

Please could we stay longer?!?!! Thank you for making us feel so welcome and like nothing was too much to ask. We had a wonderful time - thank you to all of your fantastic staff!!
Nathalie, Monny & Guy from Auckland, NEW ZEALAND

I am definitely gonna miss the peaceful atmosphere, friendly and always smiling people, generosity and hospitality which made me feel as I had almost lived here forever. Thanks a lot to everyone and hope to seeing you again in your little Worawia Haven! Tanku tumas!!
Gabrielle, Aussie-German

This place is definitely a Haven, the hospitality was amazing with everyone going out of way to help. It really made us feel part of the place and not staying at a “Resort”. You made our holiday special. Tanku tumas.
Darrin from NEW ZEALAND

Thanks for helping us make it so much fun and so relaxing. Alice's french fries are probably the best in the world and thanks for the really tasty fruit! Sunday was excellent, firstly the Cascade falls, a must for any visit, and then a lovely walk around Mele village; we really enjoyed the singing! Thanks Manuel.
Lain & Marish - September 2000

Thanks for a terrific time to you all - Solo, Firiam, Manuel, Janet, Dorothy, Mark, Alice, Tom, Don and everyone else who was so helpful, kind + all-round fabulous. This weekend was the SOR anniversary of Mele people coming from Mele Island (Hideaway) to mainland. Great celebrations at the beach. Highlight: Manuel and Tom took us up the Cascades (waterfall) at Mele-Maat.
Alison and Peter, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - August 2000

The accommodation facilities was a dream which was of paramount importance to us. We were treated not as guests but as a close family. The staff at the Worawia also showed a conscious effort in helping us at all times. I will strongly recommend this resort to all other prospective clients. The staff at reception always had a warm and happy smiles. Many thanks to all staff.

Stein & Ingvild from NORWAY

We were in Vanuatu 20 years ago. With the contribution of all at Worawia, we have been warmly welcomed & walked through by the Vanuatu Melanesian people and due to a very well organized team, we have been able to enjoy and show our grand children Delphine and Betraund, the nature, custom, food and views of this beautiful small island. We spent wonderful time at the bar in particular with Manuel and Firiam and we're delighted by the beauty of Worawia pool. Thank you so much to all of you.

Thanks for helping us have such a fabulous holiday. Your service, hospitality and kindness were super.
