Of course being right on the ocean in a tropical location brought its own challenges so we turned to the Caribbean and the Greek Islands for inspiration. Papaya Villa is iconic in Vanuatu and is a truly romantic and private island getaway… tropical palm trees, private beaches, coral roads and beautiful gardens
