Stay

Sleep in a beachside treehouseEspiritu Santo, Vanuatu

Glamping doesn’t get much more glamorous than sinking into a four-poster bed and listening to the waves of the South Pacific. Set just metres from the ocean, the two canvas abodes at Hidden Cove Eco Retreat make opulence eco-friendly on Vanuatu’s largest island. Timber floors, French doors and a tub for two add an eau de Europe in the Tented Pool Villa, while the second tent sits pretty on a platform in the treetops. The dining pavilion is well-stocked with staples and a barbecue to help make self-catering a breeze, although the option of a candle-lit, in-room, degustation dinner may prove too tempting to forego.

By day, pass your plunge pool and scurry down the ladder into tropical water where coral grows a short paddle away, or kayak the coast and spot turtles and dugongs gliding through the water. The more adventurous can jump on an electric bike and explore the local surrounds, or make like a rom-com protagonist with a sunset horse ride on the beach, while lazy days call for a massage on the deck. By night, hunker down in a kava bar in Luganville or wander the empty beaches and admire the stars.
