VANUATU CHARITY RACES
MONDAY 6 AUGUST to SUNDAY 12 AUGUST, 2018
Join us for an amazing island adventure to the Kiwanis Vanuatu Charity Race week. A fantastic week of events to raise money for charity and contribute to a great cause. Vanuatu is a Pacific island adventure far beyond any notions of cruise-ship ports and flashy resorts. Deserted beaches, ancient culture, remote and rugged islands and world-class diving are just a small part of the magnetism of this scattered 80-plus island archipelago. We'll take in all the islands have to offer, as well as some great events culminating in a fun day at the big charity race day.
MONDAY 6 AUGUST 2018
On arrival, you will be transferred to Vanuatu’s favourite island resort, Iririki Island Resort & Spa, is the top holiday destination in Vanuatu set amongst spectacular tropical landscapes of Port Vila Harbour and Mele Bay.
Every aspect of the resort has recently been renovated and refurbished with brand new furniture providing luxury accommodation (Island Fare Room) and high-end comfort. With only a 3-minute ferry ride from Port Vila, Iririki Island Resort & Spa offers the perfect balance between peaceful seclusion and convenience.
After settling in we'll head out for a few well cocktails by the pool to get to know everyone and enjoy a beautiful evening.
