Your flatmate’s attempts at meat pies and chicken parma are nice, but sometimes you just want a five-star chef to whip up the best meal you’ve ever had. If you can get it while you’re on a beautiful island in the South Pacific, even better, right?
All you have to do is book one of lastminute.com.au’s cheap flights to Vanuatu and bring along your legs and your mouth.
And maybe some pants. Pants are good.
It’s a 6km taxi ride to the capital of Port Vila once flights to Vanuatu land at Bauerfield International Airport (VLI). Even if you’re flying on to Luganville Airport (SON) on Espiritu Santo, Port Vila is worth a stop. Many tours operate out of the capital, and a car rental from lastminute.com.au is also a great option.
At the Port Vila morning market, the sugar rush of fresh grapefruit will wake up early birds, and laplap (yam cooked with coconut cream) will keep you going all day.
If you’re on one of the afternoon Vanuatu flights, you’ll still have plenty of time for a trip to the Mele Cascades waterfall. Conquer the slippery slope and go for a dip in the cool water as your reward—andthe chance to take someawesome snaps for your Insta.
No matter where you book Vanuatu hotels, those arriving at night can get right to the good stuff, if they dare: Down a shell of kava and get euphoric. Just don’t forget the chaser.
You should really eat something with that kava. In Vanuatu, a French twist on traditional ingredients leads to delicacies like coconut prawns and garlic escargot. Too bad you can’t bring any back for your flatmate!
Once you’re done Googling images of food, check out Vanuatu holiday packages on lastminute.com.au. We’ll take care of your airfares and hotels in one go, so you can get back to listing all those things you want to eat.

The property was nice. Lovely pools. The rooms were fine & clean. It would have been nice to be told about the free buffet lunch for kids. We only found out on our last day. Also you have to buy the internet and bottled water. And, if you want to swim or do any water sports it's best to buy those ...

The island offers resort living with 24 hour access to Port Vila in just a few minutes. From the moment you arrive all staff, whether in reception, the restaurants or when servicing the rooms cannot do enough for you to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Child free areas add to the luxury.
