We stayed here in early August, and found the resort to be situated on a lovely, tranquil island just a short boat ride from Noumea. You should be aware, there is little to do on the island, other than the beaches/pool and water sports. However for us, it was ideal providing a peaceful 2day 1night break in the middle of... More

A need to escape from city life, just 20 minutes from the city, CORAL PALM resort is the spot to choose! Avoid staying there during weekend because there is too much people!

This place does not deserve the title of "resort"! There was little to do besides snorkelling and water craft (extra cost for water craft). The smorgasbord was below standard and was very close to the same every night. There is certainly not a chef cooking. The price of the food and drinks was exorbitant. We couldn't enjoy any of it...

So it was a special event, the birthday holiday for my girlfriend. I had informed the hotel that this was the case, and told them her name. There was no birthday cake, not happy birthday ----- on the nice gateaux, just some more daily macaroons! Considering this is part of France, where were the lovely cake that could have been... More

We expected everything to be expensive in New Caledonia, but the prices at this island "resort" were ridiculous! Breakfast was included in our "accommodation" cost, but if you had to pay, it would be 3500francs (more than A$40) per person. Lunch and dinner were both a buffet arrangement which cost 6500 francs per person (more than A$80 pp), except on... More

A short ride by motor launch/ferry is all it takes to get to this tropical paradise. When we first entered our overwater bungalow, the two of us stood with mouths agape facing the tranquil blue, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean that surrounds this coral atoll and laps beneath our home for just 3 nights. But before I tell you... More

A short complementary ferry from Noumea (easy airport transfer using Smiths) and a charming way to start a holiday in NC. We flew in on a Friday mid-morning and were in the sun on our private deck by mid-afternoon. The overwater bungalows are quite large with good snorkelling off your own deck. Including a turtle! These bungalows are the best... More

We visited this resort recently with our 7 months old baby and had an amazing stay, not wanting to come back from this relaxing holiday at an idyllic place. Location: We stayed at the overwater bungalow, had to sign a waiver as kids are generally not allowed in the overwater bungalows. These are beautifully set to snorkel or enjoy sunset... More

I love this island resort as it is just a short boat trip from Noumea, a great place to be away if you are looking for an express getaway. The water bungalow is nice and private for couples and the garden bungalow is suitable for family with kids. The restaurant offers a variety of food, international as well as French... More
