Treetops is the first established quality budget hostel in Vanuatu. It was featured in Lonely Planet last 10 years. Recently renovated with a variety of clean and comfortable accommodation. All lodging is B@B, with the famous "tropical" breakfast. It sits nestled amongst mature trees overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the lagoon.

Airport transfer from the international terminal in Port Vila is taxi or small commuter buss – the properties here are not allowed to pick up their own guests. The larger hotels are using airport transfer buses, something that is more expensive and more tedious, since Treetops is at the end of the snaking tour after many other hotels.
Taxi. They wait outside the terminal and charge some Vatu 2,500 – 3,000 (USD 25-30) for a full load.
Most drivers know Treetops but if a rookie we are in the middle of Pango Road on the hill side, just before the new Nasama Resort and all should know that.
Buss. The system in Port Vila is a version of Indonesia's “jeepny” system, i.e the vehicle takes all passengers to where they want to go. This works well as the buses are but small and the municipality is long and narrow. Cost per person within the town limits are Vatu 150/person. Catch a local buss at the adjacent Domestic terminal about 100 metes to the West (to the right as you exit the arrival terminal) of the International.
Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 2 Days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the full cost of the reservation. Deposits paid are non refundable.
