Resting on 150m of white-sand beachfront on Vanuatu’s coastline, Barrier Beach Resort is an oasis of gorgeous blue water, kaleidoscopic reef and world-class service. This beautiful Espiritu Santo retreat is an architect-designed haven made up of just a handful of private wooden fares (traditional bungalows), each set up for the ultimate in beachfront luxury, just 20 minutes from the closest airport. With hypnotisingly blue ocean views in front and palm forest behind, each fare is completely private. Spend your days swaying in a hammock between two palms, cycling to the crystal-clear Riri Blue Hole or taking romantic strolls along nearby Champagne Beach — just a 30-minute drive away. Feel any and all tension melt away as you’re indulged with treatments at Moyyan Day Spa and tantalised with a bespoke menu of fresh-off-the-fishing-line seafood.
