Introducing "Eden's Rest", accommodation at Back To Eden, Vanuatu. Now guests can book in and stay overnight in this little slice of paradise.


We offer tastes of adventures with locals such as stunning snorkelling, giant clams and nemo city tour, outrigger canoe fishing trip, and a nature walk to hidden cascades.


Back To Eden is the perfect place for an intimate celebration. We can cater for any function for individuals or small groups, such as weddings, birthdays, graduations, meetings etc.

Who We Are:

Alan and Bronnie Prisk are Australian locals with experience in catering, weddings and functions. Also with their 7 children, 4 children in law, and 9 grandkids, they certainly have experience in catering for large families! They stumbled upon the beauty in the local village of Mangaliliu and then moved there in 2015. They built and established a beautiful cafe in order to share their little slice of paradise with others. They have a heart for the people of the Mangaliliu and use their cafe to benefit the village.

Alan leads the snorkel tours and has a truly Australian sense of humour. He is excellent at making you instantly feel like an old friend. While on the snorkel tours, he will take you to the most beautiful sights under the water, as he knows the reef exceptionally well. You will experience giant clams, nemo city, as well as a beautiful assortment of fish and creatures. More often than not the tours end up swimming with one or more turtles!

Bronnie is a whizz in the kitchen and is incredible at making foods that taste like the recipe has been passed down through generations. Each dish is carefully constructed and prepared with love to help ensure you have a memorable and delicious experience. You will be left wanting more, so stay for dessert and a cuppa!

They both have the warmest hearts and aim to make Back To Eden warm and inviting, so that it feels like a home away from home for every single visitor.

Where We Are:

Back To Eden Vanuatu is approximately 1km past the Mangaliliu village in NW Efate. The turn off is 6kms from the top of snake hill, just follow the signs.

We are 30 minutes from Port Vila and 20 minutes from Mele Cascades. Back to Eden is also right on the water and so it gets the most stunning sunsets over the ocean and a relaxed atmosphere with the best snorkelling on Efate, in Eden's front yard.

Great spot about 30 minutes north of Vila out of the wind. Awesome snorkeling with some things I have never seen anywhere else. I would recommend the snorkel tour with Allen as he knows the reef really well. Thanks!

Alan and Bronnie were fantastic hosts and made us feel like we were at home. We experienced amazing snorkeling just meters away from the restaurant and enjoyed a delicious home cooked lunch - the pate was my amazing!! Thank you Alan & Bronnie for our time at Back to Eden. Highly recommend a visit for the day or even two.
