Hidden amid Vanuatu’s pristine islands is Ratua Private Island – a slice of paradise featuring 146 acres of tropical gardens and sandy beaches. Its naturally enchanting scenery, rich culture and plentiful activities make it an idyllic venue for an intimate Vanuatu wedding and honeymoon. There is a limit of 41 guests on the island to preserve the surroundings and ensure the utmost privacy.
Exceptional menus feature delicious organic produce cultivated in the resort’s Kitchen Garden, supplemented by local meats from the island’s own cattle ranch and fresh ocean catch supplied by local anglers.
Ratua Private Island’s 200-year-old, beautifully appointed Indonesian villas are veiled with lush vegetation that leads to a private beach with breathtaking views of turquoise water. Choose from Deluxe villas, two-bedroom Family villas, Grand villas, and Safari tents. Deluxe villas have views of the bay and a bedroom linked to a bathroom via a causeway. Grand villas have large verandahs overlooking the bay and gardens and consist of three antique houses linked by a causeway; each housing either a bedroom, bathroom or large sitting/lounge room. Beautiful Safari tents are located in the south-eastern part of the island, on the edge of the jungle and overlooking a private, white sand beach. Each tent, which is themed in style with the Golden Age of the greatest explorers, offers a luxury ‘glamping’ experience and features an outdoor bathroom.
Enjoy activities such as swimming with horses, canoeing to Malo blue hole, snorkelling around the colourful reef, mountain biking around the island, fishing, scuba diving or watching sea turtles feed on sea grass while paddle boarding. You can also indulge your senses at the overwater Sunny Spa, with various treatments to relax your body, mind and soul.
