Ratua island located at a one hour distance by boat from Espiritu Santo island is a lovely place. On the island a great ecolodge can welcome around forty people in 15 different traditional Indonesian style houses. 70 people native from the very close Malo island are welcoming guests for an unforgettable stay. Rooms are located in the old Indonesian wooden houses which have been imported and rebuilt on Ratua island. The owners are involved with local social and sustainable developments. Services are professional and the atmosphere due to the kindness of locals who work in the eco resort, very friendly.
