A realization of a dream and years of planning Ratua Island resort has officially opened in Vanuatu. Ratua is an exclusive island retreat within the Vanuatu archipelago in the South Pacific offering travelers a rare chance to escape from the modern world. Like many high end island resorts the resort focuses on sustainability. However, Ratua is unique in that 100% of its profits will be donated to surrounding island communities, supporting hospital construction and educational and cultural projects. In fact, Ratua’s model of ethical and ecological tourism is the beginning of what will lead to a completely self-sustained retreat, while preserving better quality of life.
