We had the opportunity to spend 3 nights at l'Escapade and it was wonderful. Not sure about some of the other reviews but we had a great time. Plenty of relaxation, snorkelling and swimming. Lovely food each night and a live band on the Saturday night which was a bonus. The snakes were of no importance other than watching their... More

We spent 7 beautiful nights at L'Escapade Ilot Maitre. It truly is a tropical paradise resort built on its own private island. The resort takes advantage of the beautiful island and the surrounding lagoon, boasting beautiful and spacious bungalows situated in the tropical gardens or over the crystal blue water. Relax around the beautiful pool with its own bar or... More

You can take a quick taxi boat from noumea to the island. It has a big attraction in the week ends for locals and their boats. Kite surfers have a dedicated section of the beach too.Snorkelling is average but we saw a sea snake. I dont know if I would stay the over water bures looked nice and new but... More

This hotel was in a gorgeous location, just 30 min boat ride from Noumea. The views from our overwater bungalow were postcard perfect. Unfortunately, we didn't feel like the prices were justified. The hotel itself is more what I’d expect at a three star level. The staff really did try to make our stay as pleasant as possible however were... More

We were looking for a relaxing holiday only a few hours away from Australia (as I'm pregnant). It was a little romantic getaway for 3 nights before bub arrives.

We visited here on a day excursion while visiting New Caledonia on a cruise ship. The day was organized through Noumea Shore Tours. There did not seem to be a lot of guests staying at the resort. The dining area only had about 15 or so people other than our group. We snorkeled in the crystal clear water. I saw... More

We stayed here for two nights in a beach bungalow. The location of the bungalow was good on a nice section of the beach and each room has its own deck chairs so it was great using them on the beach. The service staff were friendly and helpful with a lovely welcome cocktail on arrival but that is where the... More

Excellent stay that allos us to celebrate Michele's birthday. When arriving in the overwater bungalow roses and French Champagne I was ordered when making the reservations were on the table.

Stayed here for 4 nights in an overwater bungalow and had an amazing time. The overwater bungalows are the only way to go, pay the extra to stay in these excellent rooms.
