Tabwemasana Eco Lodge, named after Mount Tabwemasana, is Santo's newest eco lodge accommodation proudly built and owned by the Kerepua Community, in west coast of Santo, boasting a unique architecture that takes after the shape of its mountain.


Mount Tabwemasana is the highest peak in Vanuatu, and one of the highest mountains in the Pacific. At 1,879 metres, Tabwemasana towers above the surrounding mountains and provides fantastic views toward the Coral Sea in the east.

Getting there

You will need to first travel to Tasiriki, south of Santo by truck, then by boat from Tasiriki Landing to Kerepua village, which is a 2.5 hrs drive by truck from Luganville and 3hrs to 4hrs by boat depending on weather conditions.

When you arrive at Kerepua village, you then have access to hike up to Mt Tabwemasana. You get off the boat and walk along the beach for 3 minutes before you arrive at the lodge, and because of the close proximity of the ocean, sunsets are perfect when you have fine weather.
