Vanuatu's and South Pacific Paradise
Located on Efate island, Port Vila is the capital and the largest town in Vanuatu. This bustling city has been home to Melanesian people for thousands of years. The town has built an enormous amount of history, culture and heritage. These long-held traditions make Port Vila an ideal place to provide the authentic style of holiday accommodation, enjoyed by Melanesians themselves.
Bungalows are traditional form of housing style throughout Vanuatu islands, including its capital Port Vila. This is also a common form of architecture throughout the South Pacific region, whose building style can vary not only in different Pacific island countries, but also on each island in the same country.
Bungalows made of wood are all of course built manually, although modern Melanesian islanders won't dismiss some of the modern tools of trade to speed up the process and make it easier on hands. But the majority of the work is done by hands, making wooden bungalows a true, wonderful style of imperfection, with an esthetic appeal.
There are also more modern-style bungalows built with bricks and mortar. These are popular holiday accommodation choice with more modern resorts in Vanuatu. Many holiday places in Port Vila provide this type of modern bungalow accommodation.
