Stayed for 3 nights on the over water bungalow no 168 was perfect, had lots of privacy and amazing views of the sunset. Room was so beautiful and well equipped everything was provided. The staff were all great but one special lady called Marie France stood out the most she really went out of her way to make everything perfect... More

This resort was lovely, definitely a nice island escape. The place was quite overpriced, especially the food which was not up to standard for the amount we paid for it. The pool area was lovely but a lot of people who came to the resort for the day were using it, even though it says it's reserved for hotel guests.... More

We are regular cruises, and like everyone else, didn't care for the port stop at Noumea at all. This cruise we did something different and caught a water taxi over to Escapade island. One of the best places- i loved it. The buffet lunch was fantastic and if you like snorkeling and water sports you will have so much fun.... More

We stayed at the Escapade Island Resort for two nights and wishes we had stayed longer. The island is a short boat ride from Noumea and is a lovely place to relax. The resort is well kitted out and the rooms are large and clean. our only suggestion was for the resort to concentrate more on the staying guests as... More

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

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 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
