Nabelchel bungalows are nestled in beautiful and immaculate gardens. It is very private, with the bungalows having their own en suite shower and toilet, with running water and 24 hr electricity. Fan in the room was a real treat too after backpacking around the island for 2 months! Hosea and Oreli are hardworking hosts, always happy to help with anything....

We only stayed one night. It is in a garden area so does not get an ocean breeze. However, it is has 24 hour electricity and fans in the room. It is a short walk from beautiful Asop beach and maybe five minutes walking to the airport. There is a kitchen you can use with a fridge to make food....

Great place to stay for a couple of days bungalows are neat & tidy with shower and toilet . food cooked for us was tasty and they let you use the kitchen if you like to cook for yourself. We organised a driver to show us some local spots and take us to a water fall on other side of...

very friendly owner, very good meals, large and clean Bungalows Close to the Airport. This is the ideal place for trips on the North part of Malekula to the small and big nambas. Especially the dinner is great and not expensive

Nabelchel Bungalows is a great place for simple bungalow-style accommodation on Malekula Island. I stayed here while on a work trip and Hosea and the staff were fantastic. The food is better than some places in Port Vila and the decorations in the dining room have a story to tell. My bungalow was clean, comfortable and had everything I needed....

Spend 2 nights in Nabelchel last month on a work trip to Malekula and was blow away with the service and smiles. There are 4 rooms available- two attached to the kitchen and restaurant area and then two stand alone bungalows in the garden. All rooms have private toilet and bathroom facilities. There is a good breakfast and I hear...

I was not expecting much from Malekula after my flight was cancelled and I arrived one day late at a burnt down airport at Norsup but this place was a gem. Clean, nice grounds, good food (I had very tender and tasty beef with an onion, tomato peppery sauce) and friendly owner. Room had a fan and mosquito net and...

Malekula is most definitely off the beaten track for many visitors to Vanuatu, but if you're looking for something unique and unspoilt, it's the place to go. Often, accommodation in hard-to-reach places is average, and food less than appetizing. But Nabelchel offers simple yet comfortable Bungalows with clean bathrooms and nice furnishings - ill admit I was surprised! I was...

You have to consider the alternatives before making a rating. No hot water, no a.c. , not even a fan. But what makes this place is the owner and his family. Ocea has to be the nicest and most helpful guy on the planet. He could not do enough for us, from introducing us to business contacts, providing breakfast and...
