VANUATU

HISTORY

Moso Island is an island off the northwest coast of Efate in Vanuatu, in Shefa Province. It is separated from Efate by Namoso Passage, which is 200 meters wide at its narrowest point.

Along with Lelepa, it creates the harbour at north Efate known as Port Havannah. This harbour was a focal point during World War II, with many troops stationed there, including posts on Moso itself and from what we hear from the locals a bar right where The Moso Bistro & Bar is built! Today, small tokens of the soldiers' presence can still be seen on Moso.

Seven villages were originally scattered throughout Moso Island until missionaries facilitated their formation into one coastal village, Sunae. This community was divided in two in the early 1990s and some people split from Sunae, forming Tassiriki village on central Moso.

THE OWNERS

Joel and Antoun started visiting Vanuatu from Sydney looking for somewhere to build a home a few years ago and moved here two years ago now.  When they discovered Moso Island they knew they had found the place to call home.  Once building started at the beginning of 2016, and with a history in hospitality they realised that what they had discovered was too incredible not to share so The Moso Vanuatu was dreamed up and built.
