Mystery Island Guesthouse
The only hotel accommodation for Aneityum Island guests is at the Mystery Island Guesthouse. However, you will
have to bring your own food from Port Vila or Tanna, as food cannot be readily

well-provisioned before arriving for your stay. But, the island provides you with a peaceful deserted island feel
and is located in a pristine setting. It's the perfect place to truly "get away."
The accommodations here are very simple and include a thatched guesthouse with two rooms and a very basic
kitchen. The bathroom is outdoors and is a simple palm frond cubical with a bush toilet. It may not seem like the
ideal accommodations, but you won't be bothered during your stay. The locals live on the mainland several miles

telephones, power, restaurants or shops here. Activities here amount to just about whatever you can come up with on
It's recommended that you bring your own first aid kit, just in case. You may need this is you get sunburn,
insect bites, or coral cuts. Better be safe than sorry.
