One major negative was the price. We travelled SYD-NOU and stayed on the island in a Beach Room (on the land, right on the sand) for 6 nights. Flights and accommodation were cheap, which reeled us in. Our package price included boat transfers to and from the island whenever we wanted, and free buffet breakfast. But the price of drinks...

To avoid the crowds on Duck and the snakes on Amadee we opted for escapade. RCI did not offer this as a shore excursion but after ALOT of research i felt confident it would all work out. We booked directly with the island and walked a short 10 mins to Port Moselle for the private ferry. After sorting out some... More

There's a lot of reviews here so I'll keep it brief. There are two significant issues with this place: 1. The Birds - the hotel is built on a huge colony of birds that cry all night long so avoid the garden view bungalows as you'll go insane through lack of sleep. Not sure if it's a seasonal thing or...

After initial difficulties at the ticket office when our booking could not be found - despite us having written confirmation - were resolved , we did manage to have a good day at l'escapade island resort. The buffet luncheon was wonderful with a large selection of seafood, salads and desserts to choose from. The availability of jet skis and other... More

We sent 6 days at the resort and enjoyed every minute of it. We stayed in a beach bungalow that was only metres from the water. Went snorkelling every day. The water was so clear and the fish were amazing. We were lucky enough to swim with a turtle on our last day. The food for breakfast and dinner was... More

We really enjoyed our stay here and had 5 nights but we were also not disappointed when it was time to leave. For us there was upsides and downsides. The upsides were that the views from the overwater bungalows are simply sublime, especially at sunset as the yachts start to moor in within eyesight of the bungalows. Really very special.... More

Honestly, this was not a "cheap" 2 nights - a bit expensive, but worth it - then again, a peaceful little island in the pacific..... :).

We stayed in an over water bungalow at l'escapade which we absolutely loved.They were much more spacious than they looked from outside with large lounge, comfortable bedroom and huge luxury bathroom. The deck was great with deckloungers and steps to access the water below which meant very easy snorkeling in the pretty lagoon. There wasn't as much variety of fish... More

Wonderful resort with luxury overwater huts. Great snorkelling directly from the private deck. Snorkelling equipment is included for hotel guests. We saw lots of fish and nice corals, a few turtles and also sea snakes. From the overwater bungalow swim away from the island towards the reef. That's where the corals are best. Other than that the island is best... More
