Nasama Resort
Job Overview

Nasama Resort – Port Vila, Vanuatu, South Pacific
Twice voted the friendliest place on the planet
Also income tax free!

If you are tired of the city and the rat race or if you are just looking for a lifestyle change, Nasama Resort on the island nation of Vanuatu is looking for a Head Chef to re-open our two restaurants after the Covid shutdown.

Just 2-1/2 hours from Brisbane, Vanuatu is a tropical paradise with friendly people and a perfect climate, clean, unpolluted air and local food grown without pesticides or inorganic fertilizers. Fishermen deliver wahoo, mahi-mahi and poulet (our local snapper), just hours after being caught. This creates a beautiful palette for a restaurant to feed the soul and nourish the body!

Nasama Resort is a 43 apartment resort complex with its own private beach and a lively coral reef just 6 meters from the shore. Our two restaurants and bars are highly regarded and very popular.

Café Vila is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and services our resort as well as the surrounding resorts. Its international menu features local lobster, organic grass-fed beef and fresh fish to provide a healthy variety for our guests.

Three Pigs is more casual with a lower price point and features wood-fired pizza, gourmet burgers and tacos, craft beer and island cocktails. It is a favourite eating spot for families with children as it also has an outdoor garden for them to play and frees their parents to enjoy their meal.

Most people who come to Vanuatu do so for lifestyle reasons and not to climb up the corporate ladder. We consider experience more important than certificates. So, just because you do not have a hospitality degree, it is not a barrier for applying. On the other hand, if you are highly qualified with formal training, we would also like to hear from you. A huge bonus would be if you have also worked with and have an understanding of other cultures.
